House Painting Inspection Tips

Whether it is a simple renovation or it is a new house, nothing is excellent like having high-quality paint on your walls. Obviously, many people will look for professional painters to do the job. While maybe a guarantee that your job will be well done, the results may be daunting at certain times.

No one deserves a poorly done job. So you need to inspect the painting to determine if there are any paint problems. You should carry a blue tape to tag where you suspect there is a problem. Still, you can carry a digital camera to take photos of areas you feel have flaws.

Proper house inspection

Always do your review in broad daylight. If you do not have the advantage of natural light, then you have to use your bulbs. Ensure they are bright enough to give you a clear picture. Diligence will provide you with fair judgement.

Start from one side of the house following a particular pattern. Place your hands on the wall and run over it looking for any rough space, i.e., make sure it is smooth. The wall should be sanded between coats, and they should not feel rough or have any noticeable bits. In case you feel the walls are uneven, the chances are that the paint will peel off exposing the underlying material within a short time. That means you’ll be left with a wall that looks ugly.

Look for any outstanding features on the wall. Check for dents, holes, paint drips, or marks that may appear awkward. Unless it is an interior design feature, such marks undermine the integrity of your paint. The most noticeable thing to look for is the staple marks usually occurring about two feet from the ceiling. At this point, the dryWaller stapled the plastic to protect the walls when the ceiling was textured and can be easily missed by painters when they prep the walls – it is above the eye level.

You also need to check along with the ceilings around the trims and in areas where there are colour changes. Ensure that the cut lines are straight and smooth; otherwise, it will appear ugly.  Painting on the ceiling is a sign of poor painting probably done by an amateur or careless painter. Similarly, no pain should appear on light switches, plugs, baseboard heaters and bulb holders. If paint occurs on the window frames, it should be removed immediately.

Experienced painters understand that uniformity is paramount. That is why they ensure that door frames and trim are free of paint. Again, before painting, all nail holes should be sanded.

The best way to avoid paint getting on to unwanted places like door and window frames is by caulking. Besides, it prevents discolouration.

Important points

When new houses settle, crack in the joints of the ceiling usually appear. Similarly, drywall screws seem. So before you move into such a house, ensure that these problems are adequately addressed. Depending on the builders, the majority usually return a year later to repair.

Doors and bifold should be painted on all sides, i.e., including the top and bottom. Painting the door on all six sides of the door is essential for maintaining the warranty.

Above all, the painting should meet your taste and preference. Apart from wall uniformity, the colour should be appealing.
