Magic Wand to Stop The Dust
We at Top Painters start our prep work first by protecting all surfaces that are not being changed drop sheets, tape, paper and plastic. Dust from drywall mud needs to be managed and the preparation to prevent this dust from going places it is not desired is a must.

Resurface Skimming = Perfection
We here at Top Painters believe that skimming to resurface is the answer to imperfect older walls especially when a high gloss lacquer finish is required. Even newer homes where lack of care is taken by builders team. Make sure all pops and holes are filled
Sand and skim again, sand again and skim again if needed to create a smooth surface this is what makes Top Painters unique do it until it is done right.
Caulking between trim and corners such as ceiling to wall and inner corners where original corners are not smooth are improved with caulking.
Priming makes the difference in sealing out drywall compound, priming preps for future colour also allows you to see any care that still may need to be taken care of.
