Whether it’s one room or 10, Ron Rice Painting and Consulting will transform the walls, trim, ceiling, and any other paintable interior surface you have.
Our Interior Painting Process
When you hire us to transform your interior space, we'll create a temporary "shop area" in a spot that is most convenient for you. We will store all of the tools and materials we’ll need for the project. The area will be protected with cloths, plastic, and rosin paper so as not to damage or mar furniture or flooring. We will keep the area neat and clean during the project.
All professional painters know that painting prep is arguably the most important step in getting a high-quality finish that lasts. It’s also necessary to take the time to protect areas that will not be painted. Our preparation steps include:
- Masking or covering all areas that will not be painted (floors, door trim, and personal furnishings) with plastic, rosin paper, tape, or drop cloths
- Sanding, or “scuffing,” all rough surfaces, doors, door frames, trim, and walls, as needed
- Caulking all cracks and gaps between wood trim and walls, and between two wood surfaces
- Patching all holes or damaged areas in walls prior to painting
- Puttying, or filling all holes, in woodwork and trim
- Priming all surfaces as necessary with appropriate types of primers
The type of paint needed for a project depends on the surface. It also depends on the special requirements and usage of the room being painted. There are several types of finishes, like gloss, semi-gloss, satin, and eggshell. We will use the appropriate finish types suited for the surface and room being painted.
High-traffic areas do well with gloss or satin as they resist dirt and fingerprints and can be cleaned more easily. The downside to those finishes is that they can make wall imperfections much more pronounced. A more matte-like finish, such as flat, will not clean as well or endure touches as well, but you won't see imperfections as much.
For example, kitchens get a lot of use. Cooking can emit substances like grease, oils, and smoke that coat walls. It’s wise to use a paint finish that’s scrubbable, like high-gloss or semi-gloss acrylic paint. For rooms like the living or dining room, using flat latex paint works well because they have less traffic and imperfections.
We always use high-quality rollers and brushes to ensure full and even coverage. We typically apply two coats of paint for long-lasting results.
No project is complete without proper clean-up. If the painting project spans multiple days, we will clean up the area daily and store our tools in the shop area before leaving. After the entire project is completed, we will remove all tools, materials, painter’s tape, and any other debris or spills. The only evidence that we’ve been there is a freshly painted room.
