General Tips

Proper preparation of the walls and painting with primer for a perfect result!

For an even painting result, we must create a stable and highly adhesive substrate on the wall, so that the paint binds properly with the wall surface.

  • Before we start painting the wall, we must find out what material the surface is already painted with.
  • If the paint on our wall is interior paint we should paint interior paint.
  • If the material on the wall is ceiling paint we should apply ceiling paint.
  • If we paint interior paint on ceiling paint, because these materials are incompatible in the future repainting will create intense peeling on the wall surface.
  • Dip the roller into the tub or bucket without immersing the entire volume in the paint.
  • Stir the paint constantly in the container to avoid the formation of crust on the surface of the paint and to have a uniform shade on the wall.
  • Never leave a wall or other surface half finished.
  • The lid of the container must always be closed during painting.

Before painting walls with interior paint, check what the wall is painted with.

This of course applies not only to old and damaged but also to new walls.

  • If the wall was painted with ceiling paint and then interior paint the peeling will occur during the repainting.
  • If we want to paint with interior paint on ceiling paint we apply the water-based primer:Tetradur
  • This of course applies not only to old and damaged but also to new walls.
  • To find out what material the wall is painted with, we wet our finger with a little saliva or water and rub it on the wall.
  • If the paint comes out on our finger or is muddy, it is almost certain that it was painted with low-quality ceiling paint.
  • If this is not done and as we touch the wet finger the color of the wall darkens, as if watering the wall then it means that it is painted with ceiling paint of better quality or mixed with interior paint.
  • Once we find the material that has been painted, we apply the corresponding material.
