Have you ever seen a paint job so impressive you wished your home could look that elegant? The formula, says Master Painter Michael Bennett, is combining knowledge, quality workmanship, premium products, and the right attitude. Calling upon his more than three decades of experience, Michael has created this intermediate-level instructional and reference guide for interior painting. Far more than a basic how-to or cookie-cutter DIY, Interior Architectural Painting: A tradesmans guide takes you through every step of the process of finishing or restoring a room: setup; understanding substrates; tools: how to choose and use them; repairing and preparing surfaces such as plaster, drywall, wood, metal, and masonry; how to identify quality coatings that are oil-based or waterborne and when and where to employ them; application techniques; identifying and solving problems; dos and donts; tricks of the trade, and much more. Whether you are a homeowner, a professional, or are planning to hire a contractor, this book will be an invaluable resource and an important addition to your library.
