One of our many services is painting high ceilings and walls with dry fall paint.

Dry Fall Paint Coverage

While dry fall paint is typically considered an industrial paint service, we realize that open floor plans and high ceilings are becoming increasingly popular in residential settings.

Dry fall painting is one of our preferred methods for painting areas with high ceilings. Also known as drop dry painting, dry fall paint contains an additive that allows paint droplets to dry quickly. For the most part, if the walls or ceiling are at least ten feet in height, the paint will dry before it hits the ground.

When the paint is applied to the walls, any overspray or droplets that don’t adhere to the wall dry as they fall and can then be swept away. This eliminates the risks associated with traditional spray painting, including ruined surfaces that are not properly covered.

 

Traditional Painting Methods

 

Even if you opt not to use dry fall paint for your high walls and ceilings, painting elevated surfaces can be dangerous and tricky.

You will first have to decide if you want to use a ladder or a scaffold. Ladders tend to be a bit less stable than scaffolds (and frightening if you’re scared of heights), but they are often more readily available. Just be sure that you adhere to all of the warnings and instructions that come with your ladder, and you should be fine.

Scaffolds are your best bet if you will be working at a height for an extended period of time. They allow you to have your tools and materials at your level, making the process a lot easier. However, setting up and moving around a scaffold can be a cumbersome task and may not be as practical for DIYers.

But as we mentioned before, if you’re not familiar or comfortable with painting high areas, it’s best to leave it to the professionals. Even if you don’t have high walls and ceilings in your home, Lakeside Painting caters to all customers and all kinds of homes.
