Our Preparation

The preparation is how everything comes together. No paint job should begin without adequate prep work. At Paintbox we don’t just want to paint your walls, we want to improve their condition too. A coat of paint will not hide cracks and other imperfections. If anything, a coat of paint will make flaws standout. You want your walls to be the focus of the room because they are stunning, not because they are scattered with marks and other imperfections.

With proper preparation, our team of paint professionals will transform your space. We offer a premium paint job that looks great and lasts. You will not see any breaks or defects on your walls when we’re through because our goal is to improve the room, not try to hide imperfections.

Steps of the Process

  • We spend time assessing the surface areas prior to painting
  • We will scrape, patch and sand walls, including rough areas that have been hurt due to previous paint failure
  • Larger cracks will be given an application of fiberglass joint tape with the compound and sanded until smooth
  • Once the surface receives its first coat; walls will be inspected and patched as necessary
  • Glossy surfaces and trim will be sanded and cleaned to ensure proper paint adhesion.
  • All surfaces will be properly primed if need be
  • Priming includes a stain sealer for water and wood stains, special primers for surfaces that have been galvanized, contain melamine and other constituents
  • Wall and trim interfaces made of wood will be caulked to remove cracks

Preparing a room for painting is a surefire way to discourage failure. The final product will not look right if paint is applied without ample planning. All paint jobs have two components: surface preparation and painting. Should the preparation components in relation to the total job be higher than what is typical, Paintbox will give you two separate quotes to match the work needed.

Due to the concealed conditions of existing wall coverings, it’s not always possible to estimate the labour involved in the removal necessary to achieve a properly painted wall or wallpapered area. There are times when the substrate used has not been sealed properly or other hidden conditions may reveal themselves during the preparation process. These factors contribute to our quotations for surfaces of this type and will be specified in all labour hour estimates. Added labour and material costs may become a necessity; however, we will always work within your budget.

No matter what is required, we will go above and beyond your expectations. Interior painting is the perfect way to update any room. Paintbox’s preparation may seem excessive but everything is done in a timely manner so you can convert your regular old space into a beautiful new room.
