Wallpaper removal, like other home improvement jobs, can require more effort than initially thought and it is important to get the job done right. At Smart Brush Painting, we will first meet with you to do a proper removal assessment. A small sample test removal will be performed on the wall in questions, which is reattached afterward, and an evaluation will be provided. Our professional wallpaper removers will have a far more educated idea as to the difficulty of removal and what the final condition of the wall will be after the removal.
A good primer is critical to achieving a beautiful, even paint job. Primer is designed to properly adhere to and seal surfaces, preventing paint from peeling. Unlike paint, primer is specifically designed for application on bare substrates, such as stucco, wood, metal, and Masonite.
Primer is usually white, however, you can often add tint in a color that matches the top coat. This will result in a better overall color application. Multiple coats of primer may be necessary when applying a drastic color change, such as dark to light, light to dark, solid covering stripes, and so on. Shiny paint that is in good condition will still need to be primed.
