Dallas Painting and Drywall Services in Highland Park and the Dallas / Ft. Worth Metro Area
Measure walls first so you’ll know how much paint to buy. As a general guide, 1 gallon of paint covers approximately 400 square feet. See page on estimating interior paint.
It’s a good idea to use a primer with a stain blocker.
Stir sticks usually come free with any paint purchase. Make sure you ask at the paint supply store and always stir paint before applying.
Attach the spout to a gallon of paint and pour without any mess or purchase paint containers with built-in spouts.
Five-gallon Paint Bucket
Use 5 gallon paint buckets for bigger jobs that require multiple gallons of paint. This helps to keep the color consistent for your entire project.
Place the screen inside the bucket to wipe any excess paint off the roller.
Use a metal or sturdy plastic tray to ensure no spills.
Save clean-up time and mess by using a disposable paint-tray liner.
Use a 3/8-inch nap to provide the best finish for most interior walls.
To paint trim, use a two-inch angled brush. This will give you more control and precision in tight corners.
Blue Painter’s Tape
Painters tape is an essential for protecting trim or walls that you don’t want to get paint on.
Protect furniture with plastic coverings with a reusable canvas or disposable plastic drop cloth. Be aware that canvas is less slippery and safer than plastic when using on the floor.
Hole filler is quicker and easier than spackling. Just dab hole filler into small holes in the drywall.
You will need a screwdriver to loosen any ceiling plates of lighting fixtures and remove switch plates before painting. An electric saves lots of time and effort.
Before priming, wash the walls with a few drops of dishwashing detergent mixed with water to remove dirt and other particles that may compromise the final finish.
