Painting the Ceiling

How to Paint Ceilings

If you want to paint your ceiling but lack the time, patience or skills for a successful job, hire us! We offer professional house painting services including interior and exterior wall treatments. When it comes to ceilings we go beyond just slapping on some drywall; our skilled professionals understand that many people aren’t comfortable with such an important task as hanging from ladders while paying attention not only to their own safety but also making sure they are using appropriate tools (for example choosing quality drop sheets) which will result in no messes and damaged surfaces nearby.

Note: The passage is about how hiring someone else who does this sort of thing regularly would be best if one cannot do so themselves—that was my main idea behind summarizing all of these points together

Prepping the Area for Ceiling Painting

When painting a ceiling, you should make sure to prepare the area and remove anything that could get damaged. You’ll want to cover any furniture with plastic and use drop sheets on the floor. If walls are not being painted, then it’s best practice is also put plastic over those areas in case of splatter or drips from your roller brush while working overhead.


Prepping the Ceiling to be Painted

A professional painter will prepare the ceiling by degreasing any dirty areas, filling and sanding cracks on the surface of it, scuff-sanding to promote paint adhesion and creating a flatter painting area. If there are stains or watermarks on this part of your home’s walls then these spots will be spot primed with an appropriate primer for that stain type.

Painting the Ceiling

Before rolling the ceiling, a professional painter will use a brush to paint around the perimeter as well as cut around any objects in it such smoke detectors and pot lights. They’ll make sure that they never touch the wall or other objects when painting with their roller by giving enough space between them before starting out on one direction of painting then reversing for second coat.
