For Excellent Painting Work

  • CEILING COMES FIRST


    PAINT CEILING FIRST to avoid drips and spatters on freshly painted walls. Paint towards thelight source, whenever possible, so you can readily detect where you start and stop or whereyou may have missed an area.

    Start at a corner of the ceiling and apply with an edge-trimmed roller or a small brush, a stripof paint along the line where ceiling meets the wall. Next, with a larger roller, roll out a richeven coat, working across the width of the room, overlapping as much as possible the areawhich has been strip-brushed or rolled.

    Use one-roller load to cover an area the width of the roller and about 4 1/2 to 5 feet long.Roll two or three strips in this way and then lightly cross-roll from unpainted to newly paintedareas. Finish area with light strokes of the roller in the original direction.

    PAINT YOUR WALLS NEXT


    Walls must be dust-free, gloss-free, smooth, and with all cracks and faults repainted. Withan edge-trimmer or small brush, paint a strip of color at the ceiling line.

    With a roller fully coated, start at the upper left-hand corner if you are right-handed (brushcan also be used for large areas, but rollers are faster and offer more extension.)Start at the upper right-hand corner if you are left-handed. Work down towards the floor withup and down strokes in strips about 3 feet wide.

    With a newly-loaded roller, always begin by rolling upward each time. Do not press the rollertoo hard against the surface. Limit your application to a small area each time.

    PAINTING YOUR WINDOWS


    Prepare windows by filling in chips and holes with wood putty. Tighten loosened windowpanes with a glazing compound according to package instructions.

    Place masking tape around pane edges to prevent paint from dripping onto the glass.Remove masking tape after paint has set but not dried completely.

    DOUBLE-HUNG WINDOWS


    Raise the bottom window and lower the upper window. Paint top and front of the bottomwindow. Next, paint exposed crossboards (thin frames) and exposed sections of upperwindow. Use a 2-inch sash brush for painting the window trim. Reverse the positions of thewindows and finish painting. Paint exposed check rails (window guides). Return windows tooriginal position, leaving them slightly open at the top and bottom. Finish painting checkrails. Paint window frames. Do the top first, then the sides, and the bottom last.CASEMENT WINDOWS

    (Those which crank or swing out requires a different treatment).
    First, crank the window out as far as it will go. Paint the wood frame around the glass. Witha small sash brush, paint over the glass sealer around the glass. Paint inside of the windowframe, starting at the top. Finish by painting the crank mechanism and latches and then thesides. Paint the bottom last.

    METAL WINDOWS

    If you are painting metal windows, a metal primer is necessary only when bare metal isexposed.

    YOU ARE READY TO PAINT YOUR WOODWORK


    Woodwork should not be painted until walls have dried to prevent accidentally scuffing upthe walls when working on the woodwork.

    WORKING ON NEW WOODWORK

    For an opaque finish, an undercoat is needed in addition to your finish paint.

    BASEBOARD AND TRIM

    Before painting counter-sink nails, spot prime. Fill nail holes with putty.Wash off dirt and grease. Let dry. Sand surface until smooth, if needed. Remove sandingdust. Paint with a small brush, starting at the top of the baseboards, then, in between,leveling out the paint. Remember to finish painting by stroking lightly across the surface withjust the bristle tips.
