Finishing and Painting
Once your drywall has been adequately installed, it’s time to conclude the project with a finish and paint. Drywall finishing and painting puts the final touches on the walls, allowing them to be ready for use and to keep your home interiors looking completed and refined. The finishes and paint types or colors you choose is entirely up to you, but we can assist with some advice on picking ones that’ll suit your lifestyle and personal preference.
Interior painting is, perhaps, the most enjoyable part of any remodeling project. Many clients enjoy picking out their new paint colors and getting creative with the options and designs available. Interior painting is done to complement your indoor space and furniture, and welcome you home to a room you can feel comfortable in. We perform interior painting with precision and care, taking extra precautions with your interiors, furniture, and new walls. We prepare the space accordingly so that you don’t have to worry about getting paint on your floors or anywhere where you don’t want it.
Purpose of Finishes
The purpose of the finish is to layer the paint and protect it from peeling, chipping, or scratching. Finishes can perform a number of duties relevant to the kind you pick out. If you have pets or kids, you might opt for a heavy-duty finish that’ll protect your walls from scratches, spills, or staining. You may also want a finish that is easy to clean, doesn’t require much maintenance, or will simply fit into your budget. Overall, the finish should protect and prolong the use of your new walls, as without them, you might notice premature deterioration, chipping, or peeling.
There are several finishing effects your interior paint can have and it all comes down to how you want your walls to look. Some clients might prefer glossy, satin-like finishes, while others opt for more matte-like finishes. You can also combine paint finishes and have one room finishes with a satin finish, while the other room is finished with a glossy finish. The effects of the finishes don’t necessarily make one better than the other, but they’re often used for different purposes. High-gloss finishes might be better off in the kitchen for surfaces that should be easy-to-clean or near cooking materials and heat, while a flat, matte finish could provide the perfect amount of light allowance for a bedroom.
Ultimately, a finish on your wall paint is supposed to increase the longevity of your paint and reduce the number of touch-ups needed over time. In the long run, a great finish will end up being more budget-friendly than a cheaper finish that requires frequent touch-ups because it fails to protect your paint. Therefore, we always recommend our clients to opt for more durable finishes that have a reputation for lasting well beyond the few years after initial painting. We offer our expert advice on the best finishes that will meet the criteria for longer-lasting results.
