Painting over stained doors and cabinets.

An affordable and effective way to update and improve the appearance of the interior of your home is to paint over your previously stained doors and cabinets. California has made it hard for residential painting contractors to do a good job while applying fine finishes to doors and cabinets  on account of all the restrictions and conversion to environmentally safe products. For a couple years I could not find a good primer that would adhere good to oil base finishes, that was sand able, and would block stains and yellowing.  Applying latex paint over an oil-based stain was once impossible. However, modern technology has allowed paint manufacturers to develop acrylic latex that adheres to virtually any surface, including plastic and oil-based finishes.
 On these doors and cabinets I used 2 different primers. The 1st one being Zinsser Cover stain classic oil base which preformed well when completely dry. It is now formulated to be  compliant with California restrictions I guess. I could go over all the surfaces with 220 sandpaper , no problem. it says it is low VOC content  but I still definitely had to where a respirator blow out the pilot light to the heater and keep the room well ventilated. I did have to strain it with a pair of my  girlfriends panty hose because they don't sale fine strainers at paint or hardware stores here any more, since everything went latex.

The second coat I used Dunne Edwards ULTRA-GRIP Premium 

These where the selling points.
  • Excellent adhesion to properly prepared drywall, wood, and masonry, as well as hard-to-stick surfaces, such as aged alkyd, aluminum, galvanized metal, vinyl, fiberglass, and select plastics
  • Outstanding stain-blocking
  • Strong tannin resistance
  • Great hide and excellent enamel holdout
  • Ultra-low VOC content
  • The finish was 2 coats of Kelly Moore's Dura Poxy. which dries very hard and is very durable.

    In trying to find the right combination of products  I think we did pretty well, and the customers where very pleased

    When you shifted to a new home or leaving the current home, the owner must do some home improvements first, like fixing the electricity problems, plumbing issues, roofing maintenance or a new roof installation and so on. These tasks are complex and most of all take a lot of time. Thus, busy people prefer specialty services such as the handyman services Springfield to ease their daily routine.

    After a building renovation, the cleaning activity must start. The truth is that most people don’t like to clean. Also, there are general cleaning activities or specific ones, which are necessary from time to time.

With a fully trained workforce, these cleaning services are sincerely engaged to arrange and balance every chaotic situation.
