Why you need an experienced plaster

Sanding in a process of evening and removing debris from walls. Plastering is a lighter version of sanding which is done after the undercoat and first coat, it evens out the bumps on your wall, removes debris and cracks. Gib Stopping is the process of filling holes and cracks on walls. If not done correctly, you will not achieve a high quality smooth finish after the final coat of your paint. This essentially makes the whole paint job worthless if not done correctly.

At Superior Painters, we first sand your walls rigorously to remove dirt and cracks. We then apply the undercoat which is followed by plastering the walls to remove all debris. This also makes the wall smooth and ready for the first coat of paint. Once the under coat is dried, we apply the first coat of paint. We then plaster the wall lightly again. This step is essential as it makes sure that there are no uneven surfaces or marks on the wall before the final coat of paint. 

The final coat of paint is now ready to be applied. We often advice clients that when painting the interior of your home, it is important that the walls are not washed with water. This can be detrimental to a paint job as it can make the paint run especially if you are using a water based undercoat. Do not worry if your walls are dirty as all the debris is removed when the walls are sanded and plastered prior to painting them. 

Things to keep in Mind

Debris and Dirt on walls/ceilings

Do not wash your walls with water

The purpose of plastering the walls and ceiling is to get rid of debris and to even out the surfaces. Your walls and ceilings should not be washed with water prior to painting. 


Do you need an undercoat?

An undercoat is needed if your walls are bare as it is meant to protect your walls. If you already have old paint on your walls then an undercoat is not needed. If you do however have a water stain on your walls then you will have to use an oil based undercoat otherwise you can use a water based undercoat.

What kind of paint do you need?

Choose the right type of paint

You can either paint your home with water-based, Oil-based or acrylic paints. Water and Acrylic paints last for upto 5 years while Oil based paints last for upto 10 years. Oil based paints are more expensive but they do give you the highest quality finish. 

Health and Safety

Check with your painter

If you are using water based or acrylic paint then you can stay in the house while it is getting painted. However if you are using oil based paint for your interiors then you should not be in the home for atleast 7 days after the job is finished.

It’s no surprise that we are thrilled with Superior Painters for the second time in two years. From first contact about a project through the finished product, everyone through our door has never been anything but professional, clean, friendly, and hard working. It’s one thing to have a project completed nicely, it’s another for the experience to be pleasant from start to finish, with an outstanding outcome. Our new home is absolutely beautiful. Painting was quick yet done to perfection. Painters finished the walls and ceiling flawlessly, cleaned, and helped move furniture back to its original positioning. We have no question about who to go to for future home projects, big or small. Thank you Michael and the team!!!read more
