Painting and Decorating

To get a good finish, needs good preparation.  This is often 75% of the work in painting a wall around your home.

If you don’t scrub the existing surfaces with a sugar soap solution to remove surface oils, the paint will most likely flake off in a few years.

Filling any cracks and holes typically needs to be done in progessive layers to ensure a smooth finish.  Then a final brief sanding with fine grit paper as required, depending on the filler used.

This side of the trades I learn’t a lot from my step-uncle, who’d been a full-time painter and decorator for about 15 years. Of course I was glad to learn from him too.
