Preparing for Painting with Platinum Painting in Dallas, Plano & Fort Worth

Let’s Get Started!

Before we begin transforming your home, a few preparation steps need to take place. Platinum Painting promises to treat your house as if it was our own, and we’ve outlined a few things that we will do prior to beginning your project. Additionally, there are a few simple things that we need from you. We’ve outlined these below for your convenience.

  • Remove your paintings or pictures from your walls. While we would never paint over these precious items, we may end up misplacing them!
  • Collect any knickknacks along your tables, mantels, etc.
  • Please remove everything in your closet if we are painting there as well.
  • Make sure your pets are secured during the project process.
  • Take down any child or pet gates before our team arrives.

How We Will Prepare the Interior

  • Move all furniture
  • Remove and reinstall all drapery
  • We use fresh plastic every time
  • Remove and re-place all switch and outlet plates
  • Perform general repairs, if stated in estimate (taping, replace sheetrock, sanding)
  • Texturize when requested
  • Fill all nail holes and cracks
  • Caulk any cracks along the doorjambs, baseboards, and ceiling crowns

  • Please turn off all sprinklers during your project time. Not only can water affect a perfectly good paint job, our team doesn’t want to be surprised with a douse of water
  • Remove any outer wall hangings and plants
  • Secure and clean up after pets

How We Will Prepare the Exterior

  • Powerwash all painted surfaces to remove all sand, dirt, mildew, and more. Some may be done by hand.
  • Handscrape to remove loose paint
  • Prime bare/new wood to help it accept the new paint
  • Caulk all windows and entrances, including major wood joints to reduce air flow to help you save on your air conditioning bill, if otherwise stated in the estimate!
