We carefully remove items such as doors, light fixtures, doorknobs, pictures and nails, and more. We protect what can’t be removed with plastic sheeting. If there are cracks or holes, we remove debris from the area and apply spackle and allow for drying. On some occasions, a second or a third coat may be needed depending on the area being repaired.
Once we allow that area to dry then, it is sanded down to a smooth flush finish that blends into the wall/ceiling, which is considered floating the repair surface, which is allowed to dry completely before sanding.
When removing peeling paint, we meticulously scrape the area with a spackle blade to remove loose paint and sand down the finished area to blend evenly with the surface.
