5 Tips And Tricks For Inspecting Interior Paint Work in Denver Metro, CO

If you have recently had paintwork done or you are moving into a home that was recently painted… or even if it wasn’t that recent… it is a good idea to inspect the paintwork to see if there is anything that needs to be done to it to update it or fix any issues that may be there.

Interior paintwork inspection can sometimes be difficult, but if you have a little knowledge on your side, you can take care of it a lot more easily.

With that being the case, here are five tips and tricks for inspecting interior paintwork in Denver Metro, CO.

1. Sufficient Light

When you are doing interior paintwork inspection, you have to make sure that you can see every aspect of the paintwork adequately, which means that you should have enough light to see it.

It may be that you will have enough light from the outside, but if you are doing the inspection closer to dusk, you will have to have good interior lights to help you with your paintwork inspection.

2. Work From One Side And Move To The Other

The best way to inspect a room, as obvious as it may be, is to start on one side of the room (for example, the entrance) and then move all around the room to the other side until you are back at the entrance.

By doing this, you will be sure that you cover the whole room and don’t miss any of it.

Additionally, you should probably choose a strategy of whether you will be working from the top to the bottom as you move from one side of the room to the other and stick to it.

3. Check The Doors And The Bifolds

Part of the interior paintwork inspection process is to ensure that not only the doors but also any bi-folds in the inspection area are well painted.

A part of this that many people miss is to check both sides of the door but on top of them as well.

The latter is the most overlooked part of door inspection as people will often figure that nobody will look on top of the doors and bi-folds, but it is an area that should be painted.

4. Checking The Baseboards Properly

When you are going to check the baseboards of the area, you will want to see a few things — and not see.

Nail holes and marks left over from the sanding process, for example, are two things that you should never be able to see on your baseboards — seeing those means that you are looking at what some would call a less than ideal paint job.

In painting interior walls, it is proper first to paint the walls and then paint the baseboards, so you should never see nail holes and sanding marks.

5. No Paint On The Ceiling

Another true mark of a less than ideal paint job is if you see paint on the ceiling — particularly if the paint color for the walls is not the same as the color of the paint of the ceiling — otherwise, how would you even know that it was there?

Typically, if you see paint on the ceiling, it means that there were no measures taken to make sure that the paint from the wall painting did not get onto the ceiling.

It’s even possible that the painter painted the room in haste and therefore got wall paint on the ceiling.
