Preparation is necessary to achieve long-term durability and aesthetics on your chosen substrate. Most people want to get on with applying that final layer of paint to create that decorative surface, but unless you take that little bit of time to lay the perfect groundwork after a short period, you will likely be doing the whole process again. Prep work is vital to a long-lasting and excellent finish. No matter how good the surface coating is, it will only adhere to what you are applying it to, and if that previous surface has grease, flaking paint, or is generally dirty, then you cannot accomplish your surface coating task. Different substrates demand different preparations, and following the paint manufacturer’s instructions is essential. Metal may require sandblasting to remove oxides before using a base primer. Glass may need to be polished or cleaned with a deep clean solution. Wood may need to be sanded to remove old paint or to create a smooth surface. Composite Doors need to be denibbed and degreased to ensure the paint adheres properly. Plastic trims and PVCu profiles need to have a light abrasion to remove the surface wax, which can inhibit permanent adhesion. However, with the right preparation equipment, tools, and solutions, you can accomplish your painting goals with the utmost confidence.
