What To Do About a Bad Paint Job

| Greer Painting |

Coming home to a job well done by painters, or so you thought, and finding a mess can be infuriating. You’ve put good money toward these improvements. A bad paint job shows a lack of professionalism from the company you’ve hired and reflects poorly on your home or business.

Tucson’s reliable painters from Nelson J. Greer Painting Contractors, Inc. don’t do bad paint jobs, and you shouldn’t have to face them in your location, either. Here are a few expert tips for how to correct shoddy work if your painter has let you down.

Why Subpar Painting Results Are So Aggravating 

Inferior paintwork, just like lead from paint, isn’t something you want on your property. Bad paintwork is an eyesore. It’s also a visual reminder that you’ve wasted some money or your own time only to produce a botched paint job.

Still, if you want to correct subpar painting results, it’s possible. A poor paint application may be irritating, but it’s usually not unfixable. In fact, there are a few ways to fix a flawed paint application by taking just a little bit of initiative.

How To Fix Bad Paint Jobs

Keep an eye out for some of the following paint flaws and try these solutions:

Dried Paint Drips

If you have a low-quality paint finish due to hasty application or too zealous of a painter, you might end up with dried paint drips running down your walls. It happens when the painter overloads their brush. 

The following options may solve the problem:

  • Scrape the drips off and recoat.
  • Sand the area down until smooth. Repaint.

Uneven Paint

Uneven paint is an issue you see when painters place new work over old paintwork. If you have some walls where the old finish is showing through, having not been properly removed, you can remedy the issue by covering the old finish with a few extra layers of paint. 

Consider a commercial roller so that you can recoat the surface easily and more evenly.

Paint Bubbles

Bubbling paint is ugly, no matter where you see it. 

To remove paint bubbles, first scrape the bubbles off. Sand down the area to smooth it. Once it’s perfectly smooth, clean the area and refresh it with a nice, new coat of paint.

Don’t Forget To Protect Surfaces From Those Unwanted Paint Spills and Splashes

Prevention is better than cure, whether that’s on your windows, trim, or ceiling. 

If you’re working with paint on your ceiling or carpet, remove small specks as you go. If the spot is particularly stubborn, try sanding it. You’ll have to repaint your trim or wall afterward. 

For paint on windows, you can use a razor blade to carefully scrape off splotches,
