Trim Replacement: How Quality Painting Contractors Handle Problem Trim

Tuesday, March 27, 2018

Picture this: after much deliberation, you have decided it’s time to paint all of the trim inside your house. You may think it sounds like a pretty simple job; after all, the trim around doors and windows don’t have a lot of surface area, right? This is a project you could knock out in an afternoon? Unfortunately, this is not the case. At Lakeside Painting, we highly recommend you contact our painting professionals to deal with any problem trim or other issues that may occur.

Why Choose a Professional Paint Company?

When you choose a professional paint company, like Lakeside Painting, you know that not only will your project be completed on time and within your budget, but it will meet our high standards. We take pride in our work, and we know you will too. So what goes into painting trim, especially problem trim? There are several steps. Here’s what our painters will do for you:

We will thoroughly inspect all of your trim before we begin to paint. We’ll mark any areas with chips or dings that need to be filled in. If these areas aren’t addressed prior to painting, the paint will not be able to adhere properly. Next, we’ll use a sanding block to apply the right amount of grit to allow the paint to stick. If there is an older, tighter section that has several layers of old paint, we’ll use a putty knife to scrape out the area. This is especially common in older window corners.

We’ll always make sure the area we are painting is thoroughly cleaned before and after we complete your project. If your project includes baseboard trim, we have experience and skill to clean your paint without damaging your carpeting. Older homes may be at risk for having lead paint, which can cause a variety of health problems. Fortunately for you, we can test for lead and help you if any is detected. We always take extra precautions around lead paint so you can rest assured it will be handled safely and efficiently.
