澳洲Australia property Steps to paint inside of a house ?? | Syd


在澳大利亚 Ok, keen for some perspective on undermount vs drop in kitchen sinks. I know this topic has been discussed before, and in my view undermounts are a far superior result. However, is it worthwhile for an investment property, bearing in mind th ANZ have charged me a govt. mortgage registration fee of $115 for a refinance - borrowing additional funds for construction on a block of land in QLD already mortgaged with ANZ. There were NO mortgage documents to sign with the new loan docs


1) Tape and cover all window and flooring with plastic sheeting.

2) Remove all door handles, light switches and sockets

3) Fill wall plug holes, cracks and chips in the wall

4) Patch holes in ceilings from existing lights

5) Cut out holes for new down lights

6) Install Wiring and transforms for new down lights

7) Light sand of all walls, and ceilings

8) Hire airless paint sprayer from hire shop.

9) WILL I NEED TO USE AN UNDERCOAT ??

10) Paint both walls and ceilings with Antique white USA washable matt flat

11) Apply second coat of Paint.

12) WILL THE DOORS AND TRIMMS be ok to paint with USA acrylic gloss if
they have got overspray from the walls and ceiling ?

13) Install all down lights, sockets, and switches.

14) Remove all plastic sheeting and tape- HAVE I GOT A TIME LIMIT AS I DON’T WANT THE PAINT TO COME OFF WITH IT ?
:confused::confused:

Any suggestions or advise ?

Wash the walls down with a light solution of detergent and water, don't worry about the ceilings except maybe the kitchen.

If you use gloss acrylic on the doors and windows you'll find the paint will scratch off easy and you may have problems with the windows/doors sticking during summer.

Any repairs to the walls should get a coat of paint applied by brush prior to spraying, water it down a tad to aid the paint with penetration/adhesion.

Are the doors and trim currently painted with gloss enamel?...if so they'll need a sand and undercoat depending on what you decide to paint over them with, if you have your heart set on water based paint, a semi gloss will suit better, it's tougher then gloss and does not become as sticky during hot weather.

No undercoat will be needed unless the walls are currently painted with an oil based paint
.
If you haven't used an airless sprayer before, practice on something outside first, nothing worse then applying too much paint.

Any over spray can be cleaned off using metho.

I don’t know how much of the Reno Kings you’ve seen, but here’s a quick way to paint:

Of course what they don’t tell you is the days it takes you to do the sanding & prep work and then to mask properly and this video does not tell you how to do the window sills & doors etc – but it is something to think about all the same.

Thanks for the reply.
Good point about the extra coat of paint on all the patch work.

Metho for clean up of over spray never tried that will give it a try.


Will be using gloss enamel on trims and doors after further reading for its wear and tear.

Thanks again DD

Don't do step 1 until you are ready to paint, namely after step 7 and also before taping do a thorough de dust. There is nothing worse than ruining a paint job because of the dust you pick up.

If you tape and then create dust the dust will just sit on the tape and is very hard to clean off.

Cheers

Reno Kings suggested spraying with the windows open for cross ventilation. So maybe only need to mask up one side of the windows in the house.

Great point about rolling the paint work after for a more even finish. I hope my wife can keep up with me :)

Thanks HandyAndy will move the masking to step 8. After I have done a good clean up !!

Looks like my plan is just about ready for action.

Will look forward to the first hurdle.

Alternatively, you may try Mr Bean's method: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hNkUyQaXwE

He has the masking part down to a fine art :D
