Key to a Good Paint Job: Prep Work

Prep work is often the less thought about part of painting. However, prep work is the most essential part to a great paint job. Many contractors or do-it yourselves don’t do the proper amount of prep work. There are three main parts to a paint job:

  • Sanding – There are three reasons why you need to sand: Strip a surface, Smooth a surface and to scuff a previously coated surface.
  • Primer – Applying a good coat of primer will result in a good paint job.
  • Masking – Taking the time to mask and cover things up will help keep your home clean. Paint can be messy and be a hassle to clean up.
