Preparing the space: Proper prep is critical to every project. With a drywall project, we remove all furniture from the room. This protects your home against dust and splatter that get everywhere
Priming the walls and trim: Good starts make great finishes. The right coat means the right seal. We use alcohol and alkyd primer to provide a solid, even base that stains to ensure that the topcoats of paint will apply smoothly, bonds securely to surfaces and seals. We stay away from the latex that DIY’ers (and many general contractors) typically get in big-box stores.
Applying the color: Better paint pays off. We recommend using high-quality paints and finishes. They offer the best value for your money due to better pigments, resins and additivities, and fewer solvents than typically less expensive paints. For trim, we use latex or environment-friendly, low-VOC oil-based paint systems. The result is superior coverage, protection, and durability.
Drying and finishing: To ensure the paint does not peel and no unwanted marks are left when the tape is removed- especially from baseboards and trim- we take the extra time to first score it with a utility knife.
