Interior House Painters Sydney?
A lot of Mosman home owners think that all painters are pretty much alike. I mean, how hard can it be? But painting a house interior is hard … to do properly.
And like so many things in life using a SPECIALIST works better than using a GENERALIST. That is, when you have an interior that needs painting hire a specialist INTERIOR PAINTER.
Also hire a different kind of specialist painter if you have an apartment stairwell, a wooden exterior, a factory wall, some kitchen cupboards, a kids school, a newly built house, a church …
You get the idea.
I’ll be the first to admit that we painters don’t help. Most of us have marketing that claims we can paint anything that doesn’t move. But don’t let bad marketing get in the way of the brilliant paint job you want.
I will guarantee that each of the ‘we can paint anything’ painters has an area that they are very good at because thats what they MOSTLY DO. Your job as a Mosman home owner is to make sure YOUR PAINTER is an expert in YOUR PAINTING TASK, whether they highlight that in marketing or not.
The best way is to read some painters Google reviews.
Here you will find satisfied customers raving about, not painting in general but, their specific painting needs. The more they talk about interiors (or whatever you want) the better. You have dug out that painters speciality! Well done!
OK But WHY is hiring a specialist painter so important?
1. INTERIOR HOUSE PAINTERS HAVE KNOWLEDGE OF THE CRAFT
House painting is a craft. Its a combination of physical movement and an intimate knowledge of the materials used and an understanding of the materials being painted. The more the same materials are worked on, the better the painter becomes.

2. INTERIOR HOUSE PAINTERS HAVE KNOWLEDGE OF LOCAL BUILDING TYPES & MATERIALS
Over time building designs change. So a specialist interior painter who works on a lot of say, older homes, like the ones found in Mosman, becomes an expert in working with those construction designs.
The same is true with your homes materials. Just one example in older Mosman homes is ceiling material. 100 years ago it was mostly wet plaster reinforced with horse hair - from horses! This stuff cracks over time but seldom falls. Its quite different to current Gyprock ‘plaster between 2 layers of paper’, and must be treated very differently.
3. INTERIOR HOUSE PAINTERS KNOW THE RIGHT PAINT TO USE
Unfortunately some painters have a ‘bulk deal’ when it comes to paint and only use one brand to get a discount. A good specialist interior guy should use the paint that is BEST for each application. I use Dulux for walls and ceilings but an American brand Zinsser for a lot of priming needs. Its essential to be flexible and use whats Best!

4. INTERIOR HOUSE PAINTERS HAVE THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT
Example: I have 7 different kids of ladders. They are all designed to do different jobs INSIDE a Mosman home, working around whats there, reaching high ceilings, and not damaging anything. I don’t have any scaffolding because it is a CONSTRUCTION tool and would wreck your furniture or floors.
5. INTERIOR HOUSE PAINTERS HAVE THE RIGHT CREW
I work alone (mostly in Mosman) so as to take up minimal space in your home. In the past I’ve hired mostly women who seem more careful with interiors. I’ve seen exterior guys come inside to clean brushes and make a huge mess in the clients laundry, because they thought they were on a dirty building site.
6.INTERIOR HOUSE PAINTERS SPEND MORE TIME ON PREP
EVERY client I’ve EVER had is surprised by how long my interior painting preparation takes. Much more than a quick sand. Real prep. includes removing hardware, removing curtains, filling holes and cracks, washing, scrubbing, de-glossing, mould scrubbing, mould killing, primer painting etc. And each process must be left to dry out before the next can happen.

7.INTERIOR HOUSE PAINTERS SPEND MORE TIME ON PROTECTION
Your home interior is NOT a building site. It must be protected from furniture moving, the prep process, the painting process, people and ladders moving around. Interior protection usually includes masking tape, cardboard floor protection, canvas drop sheets, plastic furniture wrapping.
8.INTERIOR HOUSE PAINTERS SPEND MORE TIME ON PAINTING
Older Mosman homes just take longer to paint. All those plaster bits, picture rails, detailed timber, and other nooks and crannies take far longer than a smooth modern room. And oil based trim paint is notoriously slow to dry - try 16 hours per coat!
9.INTERIOR HOUSE PAINTERS SPEND MORE TIME CLEANING UP
A good and experienced Interior painter doesn’t just pack up tools and leave when the painting is done. No, your home interior needs to be returned to being at least as clean as when the whole process started. Personally I try to leave it cleaner, but thats just me.
So hopefully I’ve convinced you that not all house painters are the same. And that a specialist Interior house painter is needed for the interior of YOUR Mosman Home. To find out more click the big red button below:
