Drywall Repair Scott's Painting
can repair and/or replace damaged areas on walls or
ceilings. We will fill minor imperfections in walls,
such as nail holes or door dings and if there is a large
area that needs to be repaired, such as a hole in the wall,
we will cut out the bad section and replace it with new
drywall. The new drywall will be blended into the
existing wall, leaving a smooth new surface.
Many times leaky roofs or skylights may cause water damage
on ceilings and walls. We can repair and retexture any
of these damaged areas. The repaired area is then
primed with an oil-based, stain-blocking
primer prior to repainting.
Wallpaper Removal Scott's
Painting and Staining Inc. offers wallpaper removal.
After the wallpaper is removed, we can leave the walls bare
repaint the fresh new walls.
This is an important area that needs to be addressed
before painting or wallpapering begins. New or bare
drywall needs to have a coat of primer so that the final
painted finish will be consistent over the entire wall.
When hanging wallpaper you will want to ensure that the wall
is either painted or primed first. Hanging wallpaper over
bare drywall will work, but when the time comes to remove
the wallpaper, the surface of the drywall will probably
become torn and ripped. A coating a primer not only
makes wallpaper removal much easier, but it also assists in
hanging new wallpaper. It provides a clean a uniform
surface. All bare drywall will be primed with either a
latex-based primer or an oil-based primer. Oil-based
primers, such as Kilz, provide a barrier from stains caused
by water, crayons or other blemishes.
We can paint almost any surface inside
your home. We not only paint walls and ceilings, but
also cabinets, woodwork, doors and windows. If your
existing surfaces are stained, we will sand the entire
surface. This takes the "gloss" off of the surface and
gives the paint something to "bite" into. Once the
surface is sanded we will prime and paint it with your
choice of color and finish!
We can stain or refinish almost any
surface inside your home. If the surface is already
stained, such as existing window frames that are flaking or
discolored, we will sand and chemically clean the area to
brighten the surface. This will help to remove much of
the black that is often present around window frames, after
years of sitting in the sun in the summer and sweating in
the winter. We will then blend in a similar color
stain into the woodwork to bring it back to life. When
your home was built the stained surfaces were probably
sprayed with a lacquer finish. Lacquer tends to break
down faster than a polyurethane finish. In most cases,
Scott's Painting & Staining will use a polyurethane finish
when refinishing your new or existing windows.
As mentioned above in the
preparation section, we prime all new or unpainted walls
prior to hanging wallpaper. This helps ensure a better
finish and it will assist when the time comes to remove the
wallpaper. Scott's Painting & Staining Inc. can hang
all types of wallpaper. We also offer
