Find out everything you need to know to get the best results with your ideal Newcastle Roofing ceiling paint.
Preparation and materials for painting the ceiling
Before knowing in detail what tools and materials we will need to paint the ceiling, we must take into account some previous questions regarding surface preparation. To avoid splashes that may occur, it is necessary to remove the furniture from the room and cover the floor with plastic sheeting, newsprint or cardboard.
Shades and lamps should be removed and plugs covered with tape. Having a ladder high and safe, enough to paint comfortably is also essential. Clothing is also important; you must use special clothing for painting, which can be stained without problems with Newcastle Roofing . Protective glasses and gloves will be other help accessories.
Regarding the materials of the painting process, you will need:
- A roller
- A brush
- An extension stick
- A bucket
- A plate
- Ceiling paint
- Steps to paint the ceiling
The process of painting the ceiling does not differ much from that of painting the walls:
Putty will be our best ally in the event that we detect cracks in the ceiling. It is important to sand the entire surface of the roof afterwards, clean it with a damp cloth, and apply a coat of Acrylic Sealant Fixer to avoid differences in absorption in repairs.
Paint the perimeter first: with the brush, we will apply the ceiling paint at the angles between the walls and the ceiling, and then use the roller on the rest of the ceiling. This way we avoid leaving areas with marks. For some specific points that the roller does not reach we can use a brush.
First coat of paint: we soak the tool with paint from the bucket, drain it and apply stripes vertically on the ceiling, without returning to the parts that we have already painted. It is not necessary or recommended to press the roller; it is enough to slide it.
Second coat of paint:
This second coat is applied when the first coat dries, in horizontal stripes.
