Excellent preparation work before painting
Our painters take pride in their painting work, making sure you will receive quality painting preparation before beginning the paint application process. Our painters take the time to ensure your valuable possessions are protected from paint before we do any painting for you. Before any work can begin, the job site itself must be properly covered to ensure that unpainted surfaces such as furniture and floors stay clean. Then the painted surfaces can be prepared.
Even the best paint will not produce satisfactory results if the surface to be painted is not prepared properly. All of the surfaces we will paint for you are properly prepared. Knowing what patching compounds and/or caulking to use is important, and applying them properly is a skill in itself. We use correct fillers, and caulking to ensure all cracks are filled and damage is repaired.
Sanding takes place after filler to smooth out the repairs to make sure they will be invisible after painting. Sanding is also done before and between coats of paint to ensure the final product is smooth. For exterior painting, scraping is done to remove old, loose paint and outside washing may be required to remove dirt or mildew before painting.
Our painters are skilled at removing any barriers to adhesion, such as loose paint, grease, dirt, or gloss. Sanding, chemicals, and – often – a lot of elbow grease are required for this job. (It is also the part of the job that careless painters often fail to do well.) Our painters have many years of experience, so they know what they are looking for and know how to remove anything that can stand in the way of proper paint adhesion.
The final preparatory step is applying the right primer or sealer when necessary. Our painters also use correct primers or sealers to ensure the paint achieves excellent adhesion and consistent sheen.
The paint application process is fine and detailed
The actual paint application process can begin once the painter has prepared the job site, the surfaces to be painted, and gained access. This is the most rewarding part of the painting job, when all the hard work of preparation pays off.
The paint must be of the right type for the specific surface and location to be painted. The paint colour must be checked to make sure it meets the customer’s specifications.
Our painters then decide whether to apply by brush, roller or spray, depending on the requirements dictated by the job site location, the surface to be painted, and the final result desired. VanDutch professional painters always use the best paint for the job and apply it to manufacturers’ specified coverage rates.
Smooth application and straight, clean lines take practice, and our experienced painters have plenty of that! When all the painting is done, we make sure you are happy with the painting work we’ve done, and even after we leave, we will always come back if anything has not met the highest painting standards. In the end, you will receive a quality paint job that will last and look beautiful for years.
