Will any interior ceilings need to be painted during the house remodeling project?

We recommend painting once all the main structural and functional work has been done, but before installing new floors or carpets. Basically, the floors are the last, so you can avoid the wear and tear, tools and dust brought by multiple contractors, tools and dust that comes with a complete renovation. However, some walls and moldings can be damaged by carpet rolls and installation, so a final coat may need to be applied to cover dents and scratches. It also allows your painting company to really focus on finishing details close to the ground as efficiently as possible.

There are several factors that affect the painting program. The most important one relates to the type of home renovation or improvement you are doing. In most cases, we suggest not painting first. So far, no other installations have been installed in the house, such as floors, kitchen and bathroom cabinets, toilets, moldings, electrical outlets, switch and socket covers, lamps, or cabinet shelves.

This gives us the possibility to spray paint without having to worry about the paint falling on anything. If there are smooth (textured) ceilings, we work on them first. We spray on a primer, roll it back and, when it is dry, we sand the entire ceiling. Then two layers of roofing paint are sprayed and rolled up again.

Adequate drying time is allowed between each layer. Spraying and rolling roofs requires two people to work together. An essential part of any remodeling project is a new paint job. It gives the room a new look and you can have a lot of fun choosing the new color scheme.

A question that often comes up is whether you should paint before or after doing the rest of the project.
