MAKE READY – First Things First

Things to know. Tips for success. Surface Prep.

A term used often among painters is “make ready ”. The process of any professional paint job starts with the preparation. If it be inside or out, all surfaces must be prepared to receive paint. It is interesting that the label of every can of paint you buy begins with a couple paragraphs about surface preparation. It is also pretty amazing how often this information is disregarded or even ignored.

The ideal ground for paint is one that is hard, smooth, dry and clean. The closer your surface is to this ideal the longer it will last and better it will look.

Anything like dirt, grease, oxidation, or flaking prevents paint from sticking properly. Think of it this way, you would never wax a dirty car. It just makes sense to have the groundwork in good shape if you expect to get a long life from your paint.
