General Painting Process

1. What is the standard procedure of re-painting?

Putty touch up, followed by a coat of primer and 2 coats of paint application, provided walls are in good condition without any cracks or water seepage. Priming can be skipped if matte finish paint is used. However, it is always advisable to have an under coat of primer if a gloss (sheen) finish is desired or when painting a shade way lighter or darker than existing.

2. What is the use of putty?

Putty is often used to prepare a smooth, even surface prior painting. It fills in minor cracks and holes and removes any undulations on walls.

3. What is a primer? What is its use?

A primer is a substance that is used as a pre-coat before paint application on any surface - walls, wood or metal. Primer improves adhesion of paint onto the surface and enhances paint durability.

4. Should primer always be used before applying paint?

Priming can be skipped while repainting using a flat paint (matte finish), though it is always advisable to apply paint on well prepped and primed surface. But never give it a miss when 1. Fresh painting a surface/drywall 2. Using gloss/high sheen paints 3. Painting a drastic colour change - lighter shade over a darker one and vice-versa. 4. Painting on repaired walls(patched areas) or walls in bad condition – paint flaking/peel off 5. Painting wood surfaces

5. What all paint finishes are available?

Paints are available in following dead flat to high gloss finishes: · Matte · Semi Gloss or Satin or Soft Sheen · High Gloss or Super Sheen or Silky

6. What is a matte finish?

Matte finish is opaque and does not reflect light at all and thus can cover up minor imperfections. It is not washable or stain resistant, so only way to get rid of scribbles or stains, is to paint over them. Matte paint is least expensive of all emulsions and is the most economical solution for houses on rent.

7. How do I choose paint finishes for my house?

Rule of thumb says higher the sheen, higher the shine, more durable and easy to maintain it is and higher the cost. But, high sheen also reflects more light and hence imperfections like patches or reworked areas are easily noticeable. Gloss paints can be used in areas that demand attention and easy maintenance, like high traffic living room, kids room, kitchen and bath. If you have to impress your tenants with your freshly painted apartment and also save good cash, go for matte paints. They are easy to be painted over and do not show up minor imperfections as well. A smart tip is to use combination of paints: Matte finish on ceiling and products of desired sheen on walls.

8. What paint should I use for kitchen?

High gloss paints are well suited for kitchens because of their high washability and stain resistance.

9. Can I use enamels for kitchen and bathroom walls?

The wall should be well-plastered with no loose cracks. The surface should be smooth and clean. · PoP or Plaster of Paris can be used to fill up uneven surfaces and give a clean finish. Using a primer can increase the adhesiveness and make the paint last longer. · After the painting is done, you should keep the walls clean and damp-free.

12. How is a texture applied to the walls?

There are different methods to apply texture to your walls. Texture can be applied with putty and even with paints depending on the choice of texture. Textured paint may also be used at times. The composition of the paint can also be changed to give a specific kind of texture. Soft textures can be applied with a trowel, sponges, and putty knife. Harder texture like knockdown or popcorn requires more work with different types of materials.

VOC paints can have several health risks because of certain emissions.

The stencil should be removed slowly after removing the tapes. Using stencils is easy and also completely harmless.
