Breaking The Mold

All too often, new construction painting is done much faster than it should be and this comes at the expense of quality.

 

The first paint job in your home should be done right because it's a lot harder to deal with sloppy work after the fact.

Our New Construction Interior Process

At Seriously Painting Ltd. we focus on quality when it comes to new construction painting and renovations.

We break down the process of painting a new construction interior into three phases which begins once drywall has been hung, taped, mudded, and sanded. Although the process for renovations can be similar to new construction some adjustments can be made to compensate for the dynamic nature of renovations.

Phase One: Primer, Ceilings and First Coat on Walls 

We like to start the first phase of our painting process before trim, flooring, cabinets and other finishing items have been installed so we can apply our primer and at least one coat of topcoat to all of the drywall.

 

This saves us a lot of time if we don’t have to mask off and cut around unnecessary objects.

Step one: Before applying any primer we dust off walls and ceilings with a large floor mop to remove any dust left over from sanding the drywall joints. At this point, we’re ready to apply masking to any windows and anything else we’re not painting.

Step two: Before we apply any paint we prime both the ceilings and the walls with a high build primer to hide any imperfections with the drywall and to equalize surface porosity.

Step three: Once we have sprayed on and backrolled our prime coat we get started on ceilings. We apply two coats of high-quality latex paint to ceilings with a sprayer, sanding before each coat to ensure good adhesion and an even finish.

Step four: Once we have completed the ceilings we get started on walls. Like with our ceilings we sand walls between coats and use a high-quality latex wall paint. We apply wall paint by hand with a brush and roller to eliminate overspraying our finished ceilings. During phase one we apply two coats to walls behind any toilets, cabinets, and on the inside of closets to save us the headache of trying to paint once toilets or closet organizers have been installed.

Phase Two: Trim, Doors, Baseboards and Topcoat

Once the bulk of the finishing has been done by other trades we’re ready to start phase two. 

Step One: We start phase two by filling nail holes in trim and baseboards, sanding excess filler and then dusting off the trim before masking off trim and baseboard to apply our first coat of high-quality trim paint. We really like both Insl-X Cabinet Coat, and Benjamin Moore Aura on our trim. Once our first coat has had a day to dry we caulk the joints in the trim and base, sand, and topcoat and trim.

Step Two: After we have finished the trim and baseboards we check the walls for any imperfections or damage that may have been done while installing floors, electrical, cabinets, etc. After we have filled and primed any affected areas we get sand and topcoat the walls. 

Doors: Depending on the amount of space on site we may choose to spray doors on site while doing the rest of the trim or we can paint them in our shop. We fill, sand, dust off and paint all six sides of interior man doors and bi-folds to achieve a perfect finish product.
