Your new walls are up, and now it is time to paint them. But wait! New drywall requires a bit different strategy than painting other rooms in your home. Unless you take the time to do it right, you will be left with streaks and seams showing through. So, how should you proceed? Here are a few tips from the pros at The Painting Company.
Putting up new drywall is a dusty project. You’ll want to make sure that all of that dust is swept away before cracking open a can of paint. Otherwise, your new wall is going to have loads of specks and lint stuck to it. Before starting any paint job in your new home, be sure to check for:
Most people grab either a sprayer or a roller when it is time to paint a wall. Sprayers work well for new drywall but, be warned: they can be messy! Offering a quick way to cover large areas rather quickly, spraying can be a real time saver – if you know what you are doing. But, in most cases, DIYers usually find a roller to be easier to handle. Stay away from synthetic ones though, since they often leave behind trails of lint on the wall.
One look down the paint aisle of your local home improvement store and you may feel like running away – there are so many different kinds of paints to choose from! Don’t worry, picking the right one really isn’t that difficult (if you keep these tips in mind):
Many paint manufacturers advertise the ability to apply paint in a single coat – don’t follow this recommendation when painting new drywall. All-too-often the seams along the edges of each board will start to bleed through over time. Adding that second coat solves this problem.
If you follow these four simple tips, you should be able to tackle that painting job on your own. But, if you feel like you still need help then call the experts at The Painting Company for help! They’ll be glad to send out a professional crew to handle the job.
