Why Surface preparation for wall painting is important?
The substrate must be clean, sound, dry and free from dust, oil, grease and laitance etc. Our painting company division are professionally qualified to take up any kind of surface preparation job by doing power sanding or manual sanding in Dubai, U.A.E.
The Client must decide the wall finish and tell the contractor clearly about his or her requirement. If a client wants “silk finish” on his existing painted wall, then the surface has to be thoroughly sanded, preferably applying one coat of stucco filler. Applying one coat of a stucco will remove the unevenness of walls. Then sanding the surface will make it smooth and ready for a re-coat. In silk finish, any problem in existing wall will start showing after a final paint. So the thumb rule is to make the wall ready properly for a silk quote.
Be it any painting wall or floor, you need the surface to be prepared thoroughly. In general, the most common paint finish are Silk/ Satin Finish or Matt Finish.

Matt Finish Wall Painting
For “Matt finish” wall painting, only sanding the walls if the wall is crack free, will be enough. So the painting cost for the matt finish walls are always cheaper than silk finish walls. The paint cost is also less than the silk finish paints.
