Painting Drywall It's time to paint your new Drywall! Here are some tips on how do a nice paint job. This page will help you to be well informed so that you can do top quality paint work. If you want to know what to use for the specific job I did for you, please feel free to ask. Upon first inspection of your finished drywall you may note some dust on the walls. Do not use water to even lightly sponge this off as you will ruin the sanded finish. The dust will blend in when you prime with no issues. If there happens to be a concentrated area of dust you can use a soft feather duster to lightly brush it off. But for the most part it wont be an issue. The newly sanded drywall surface is soft and easy to scratch until you prime the surface. Primers: Use a high quality "drywall primer". Drywall primer is designed to even out the surface difference between the raw sheetrock and joint compound and helps make for a much better finish. Sheetrock quality has gone downhill in quality over the last decade. The surfaces are just not as smooth nor the paper surface as good a quality as they once were. Better primers and paints help to compensate for these manufacturing issues. Do not try to save money in this area. Why spends thousands of dollars on a top quality drywall finish then not spend the few extra dollars on top quality primers and paints or skimp on coats? There are no savings here-you get what you pay for and what you put into it. I highly recommend Sherwin Williams ProMar 200 Wall Primer if you are going to topcoat with a flat finish, but if you plan to paint with anything with a sheen be sure to use Sherwin Williams Premium Wall & Wood Primer. If you decided on darker colors your supplier can tint the primer accordingly. This will improve results and possible lessen the paint coats needed. Darker color often require more them two coats for proper coverage. Call around to check the prices, as some stores will carry it cheaper than others.
