Paint Adhesion

In painting, adhesion refers to the strong bond between the coating and substrate. It asks the question, “Will this paint stick to this surface for a long time?” Adhesion is absolutely essential to the success of a paint job.

As we have mentioned before, professional painters are practical chemists who understand the bonding properties of the best products on the market. To achieve a long lasting paint that stays put, a number of considerations must be taken into account. Surface type, surface preparation and the right primer are high on the priority list.

Not sure if your paint job will hang in there over the long run? Better call the pros at Paint Doctor’s Painting.

Start Small

If you are considering painting your own cabinets may we suggest you start small by tackling a bathroom vanity first. In the process, you will find that removal of hardware, cleaning, sanding, masking, primer and top coat may help you decide to bring in the pros for a complete kitchen paint job. Start small. See how it goes.

It’s Not Easy Being Green

You may start with the great idea to change things up in your kitchen by painting the cabinets green. One of the first challenges will be deciding on a green. For example, the two greens featured above create very different looks. Left: Coastal Plain SW 6192, Right: Ripe Olive SW 6209

Next, you have the question of cabinet hardware including pulls and hinges and how they can be removed and properly labeled to return to their original position.

Then there is the matter of preparing your cabinet surfaces. Degrease, de-gloss and determine what you are going to do with the interiors.

Then there is the matter of protecting the other surfaces in the kitchen – countertops, walls, appliances, etc.

Kermit was right. We can help.

Serving a Variety of Tastes

More than any time in recent history, many of us have spent a lot more time indoors in our own homes. That’s a lot of hours looking at the same walls. If variety is the spice of life, many of us have been experiencing a bland outlook with a groundhog’s day of repetition.

One of the best ways to add some much needed excitement to home décor is to make a color change to the opposite end of the spectrum. Going from light to dark can add just the change that’s needed.
