Interior painting on Skylark Road in the development of Brookmeade – Wilmington, DE. 19808

October 2015

This is a repeat customer’s home, this time the master bedroom and bath. This interior painting job in Wilmington, DE features high-end preparations and paint application.

The picture below features the mid process of the permanent crack repair process specially developed by Custom Pro Painting ( PAINTDE.COM ) that is fully guaranteed that cracks will not re-appear. All repairs are undetectable under the final paint finish.

The trim features Muralo Waterborne Semi-Gloss as the final coating with Coronado RUSTSCAT Waterborne High Gloss as an undercoater. All trim wet sanded, paint drips/heavy caulk etc. shaved off, and wet sanded between coats with extra effort to smooth out remaining imperfections before final finish. This painting process with these materials and preparations creates a very uniform dipped-like appearance. Extremely durable.

Interior painting makeover on master bedroom in Village of Lindell – Wilmington, DE 19808

September 2015

Surface Preparations

Of course, every interior paint job can vary according to the customers wants and needs when it comes to specifically prepping the ceilings, walls, and trim in any home. Also prices can vary depending on the extent of such preparations, but Custom Pro Painting can deliver a cost effective product with minimal preparations to a very high-end dazzling look. All according to our clients’ wants or budgets.

This bedroom below was a disaster! It had not been painted since the home was built. Soot build up for 30+ years, dozens of nail-pops; you name it, it had it! It required also a primer/sealer/stainkiller. Customer wanted high-end results. That is what we encouraged and that is what we produced.

Hatbanding, what is it?| Custom Pro Painting

What is “hatbanding” and how can you avoid it?

Hatbanding, or also known as “picture framing”, is more common with usage of certain paints than others.

Hatbanding is where the top portion of the wall after painted ( the cut-in portion) appears usually lighter than the rest of the wall and makes an appearance of a band going around the top of your walls.

My experience with using various kinds of paints, Benjamin Moore is the most notorious paint for that to happen. This is not to say that Benjamin Moore has a problem with their paints. It’s that you have to know how to use them. In fact, I love Benjamin Moore Paints. It is a very high quality paint.

That being said, there are 3 main reasons that may cause hatbanding:

1) Certain paints with their various sheens could produce it.

2) Paint may not be mixed thoroughly. It is a good idea to mix regularly any medium to dark tinted paint as you continue painting.

3) The texture of the brush versus the texture of the roller may play a part in how the refraction of light bounces off these two textures. The key is to roll as tightly as possible preferably before the cut in process dries. Wet on wet!

Custom Pro Painting of Newark Delaware has implemented a sure fire way to avoid hatbanding and to guarantee smooth even finishes when it comes to interior painting.

We service the tri state region from Delaware including the areas of North Wilmington, Wilmington, Newark, Pike Creek, Bear, Brandywine, and the state of Pa including Delaware County and Chester County as well as Cecil County Md.

“Brian is an excellent painter. He painted our Hokessin home 14 years ago when it was new. When I decided to freshen things up, I called Brian again. He painted walls, woodwork and ceilings for me (including a very high mansard ceiling). Everything looks great! He paints with precision and takes great care to protect your furniture and floors. I am very pleased with the results of this project.”

This was an interior painting job we did in Brandywine Delaware 19802. You won’t believe how bad this was from the start! The whole bathroom was peeling because of poor workmanship of previous painters who did nor seal and prime correctly and a little moisture from shower taking just made everything peel and blister. Ceiling and walls came out flawless with perfect even sheen.  Please visit us at custompropainting.com
