Brushing Up: Your Guide to Painting the Interior of Your Home*

Preparing a room for interior painting requires attention to detail and a commitment to quality. At Transtech Painting, we understand the importance of proper preparation and take every step seriously to achieve a high-quality and long-lasting result. Here's a closer look at the steps we follow

Surface Protection

Protecting surfaces before painting is crucial to prevent unwanted drips and spills. We use painter's tape to mask the room, ensuring that floors and other surfaces are covered.

Remove Covers To create a seamless finish, we remove electric outlet covers and light switch covers before painting. This step allows us to paint edges without leaving unsightly marks.

Prep Walls

We sand and clean walls to remove any imperfections and create a smooth, even surface. This step helps ensure a perfect finish and long-lasting paint job.

Paint Doors, Trim, Crown Molding, and Baseboards

Using airless or HVLP machines, we paint doors, trim, crown molding, and baseboards with precision, ensuring a smooth and even application. Our technique prevents drips and results in a flawless finish.

Cut In

We begin by painting along the edges and corners with a brush, creating sharp and defined lines. We then roll the walls immediately to avoid brush marks and streaks.

Paint Walls

Using a 9" or 18" roller, we paint the walls from the top down, ensuring even coverage with a W or M movement. We apply the paint in thin layers to prevent runs and drips.

Remove Tape and Paper Cover

Once the paint has dried, we carefully remove the painter's tape and paper cover, revealing clean edges and a polished finish.

It's worth noting that each project is unique, and we customize our approach to meet specific needs.

At Transtech Painting, we are committed to delivering high-quality results on every project. Our detailed and organized process ensures that your interior painting project is completed efficiently, on time, and within budget. To learn more about our Interior Painting Service, click HERE
