PREPA­RA­TION

Matamata Chronicle - - Building -

Prepa­ra­tion is the heart of the mat­ter. It not only speeds up the fin­ish­ing coats but lays a smooth base, en­sur­ing a fine re­sult.

Sand smooth, dust off and wash down with su­gar soap. Prime tim­ber sur­faces be­fore re­pair­ing any faults.

Check plas­ter and plaster­board for any nail de­pres­sions or cracks and over­fill with an in­te­rior filler,

Scrape away flakes and blis­ters then smooth with sand­pa­per.

Touch up bare ar­eas with an un­der­coat or primer.

Re­ally bad paint­work should be scraped right back to the bare sur­face.
