Preparing your walls for paint is probably the most
important step in the process.

Let's assess the type and condition of your walls to find out exactly which products you'll need to buy. The necessity for some items will be determined by your answers to the following questions. Other essential items are usually needed for any interior painting project.

SHUR-LINE PREP & PLANNING TIP:
To avoid painter's remorse, pick up some sample-sized paints to try before investing in a gallon!

The type of trim in your room determines the type of angled brushes, painting edgers, trim rollers and other Shur-Line convenience products you'll need to help you create a professional look.

Answer these simple questions to add the proper products to your checklist.

SHUR-LINE PAINT TIP:
NAP stands for the length of the fibers on a roller cover. For drywall use a 3/8" NAP. Choose a smooth roller cover (short NAP) for painting metal doors, finished wood or paneling

Thinking about the clean-up process as you prepare your project will make
the clean-up quick and easy - so you can enjoy the results faster.

As you consider your product choices for your project, also consider how you will clean up and store those products when you're finished. Answer these questions to help determine which clean-up products to have on hand.
