How to prepare a wall for painting

How to prepare a wall for painting

While it can be tempting to get painting as soon as possible when you want to decorate a room, it’s worth taking the time to make sure your room and surfaces are best prepared before you begin. Getting the preparation right is crucial to achieving the perfect finish. It’ll also help to keep things neater and cleaner, and reduce the need for additional coats of paint. No paint can completely cover dirty or uneven surfaces, so tackling this at the start of the project avoids the need for extra work later on.

In this guide we’ll walk you through the most important steps to take, and show you how to;

  • Empty your room ready for decorating, and protect fixtures and fittings you aren't painting
  • Clean your walls to help paint adhere
  • Fill holes and cracks and smooth your walls for the best possible finish
  • Prime stained surfaces or those which have not been painted before

Once you've completed these tasks you should have a smooth, even surface ready to be painted.

If you're painting on bare wood, plaster or metal surfaces, you'll get a better result if you use a primer first. It provides a surface which the paint can bond to and stops the paint being absorbed. Find out more what you need and for what surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what it says on the tin I do quite a bit of decorating work in the winter months when gardening goes quiet and this is a god send. Even a thin base coat of this works wonders. It dries quickly, has great coverage and washes off brushes with ease.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Do people not know what a primer is? Provides an excellent surface on which to apply your top coat(s). A primer should not be a thick coat of solid colour, but a coat which is well attached to its surface and has a matt finish to provide a good surface for painting. It does an excellent job - goes on easily, stays on and takes surface coats well. Please stop the ridiculous comments - it is not meant to be a top coat. I agree that it's not as thick as the old B&Q primer, but you still needed 2 top coats on that for a good finish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Diall White Primer & Undercoat Good economical value and time saving advantage of the undercoat being the same colour as the proposed paint there for if desired a postponement of decorating till a better time most likely the summer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Give it a chance. I agree it's not as thick as other undercoat / primers we have used so at first I was regretting my choice but after the two suggested coats it has done the job perfectly. I used it on a dark pine stair banister. It sticks to the wood well and gave a great base to apply the gloss too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from keep stirring Found it like the water based gloss.Kept stirring and expect to thicken but did not. If the brushes washes off with water takes a lot to to cover ,especially if primer and undercoat. Just a bit cheaper than the big brands but they are better. Would not buy again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Terrible product. Having applied the recommended 2 coatings on bare wood, primed wood and also glossed wood, am now on my third coat of Dulex gloss to white it out. Thoroughly annoyed!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Watery paint Bought this as a spare for a large project. Used dulux,which was super.ran out and have just used the dial,like water,will need two under coats instead of one.Do not buy this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy something better! this is great paint if you like painting because you'll get used to it with this stuff. I rubbed down a varnished door finished in medium oak and put 3 coats of this 'undercoat' on - it just did not cover and I ended up buying an oil based undercoat. This stuff is not overwhelmingly cheap and best left alone until the manufacturers vastly improve the quality!
