Most surfaces require one coat of quality primer, followed by two coats of top-quality paint. But when repainting, depending on the condition and color of the original surface, a single coat or more than two coats may be necessary. Avoid doing questionable math. Ask your painting contractor to estimate it for you.
Say goodbye and say hello.
Don’t design and dash. Once you’ve completed a job, provide your client with a “thank you” packet that includes your business card and information on how to care for newly painted walls, along with proper storage and disposal of paint. It will leave a great impression, and just might help to secure your next job.
