Mill Creek Painters - Ceiling Painting Service

Ceilings, often overlooked, are crucial to the overall ambiance of your home or business. Over time, they can subtly change colour, gradually shifting to shades of yellow due to sunlight, moisture, and everyday activities like cooking and smoking. This yellowing, once noticed, becomes impossible to ignore.

At Mill Creek Painters, we specialize in reviving ceilings across Edmonton and Calgary. Whether you have a flat, popcorn, or knockdown ceiling, our expert team is equipped to refresh and rejuvenate your space with top-notch ceiling painting services.

Tips on Painting Ceilings

While we recommend professional assistance to paint a ceiling, we understand the DIY spirit in many homeowners. Our experienced Mill Creek Painters team, serving Edmonton and Calgary, offers these balanced tips for tackling your flat ceiling project:

Use Stain-Blocking Primers

Ceilings are prone to various stains, including water and smoke marks. A quality stain-blocking primer, like the ones used by Mill Creek Painters, is essential. It effectively covers stains and odours, ensuring they don’t bleed through the final coat of paint.

Select Specialized Ceiling Paint

Ceiling paints are slightly different from wall paint, uniquely formulated to offer slower drying times, reduced splatter, and a flat finish. These characteristics are crucial for achieving professional-looking results, particularly for those new to painting.

Cut In Before Rolling

Begin with cutting in around the edges with a brush, similar to wall painting. By cutting in smaller sections at a time, you can maintain a wet edge, which helps in blending the rolled paint seamlessly.

Roll in Both Directions

For even coverage, it’s important to roll the paint in two directions. Start by painting small 5-6 square foot sections. After completing each block, roll over it again for a second coat at a 90-degree angle to the first direction. This technique ensures a uniform finish without missed spots or overlap marks.

Textured Ceiling Painting Services

At Mill Creek Painters, we’re experts at making all ceilings look amazing!

Textured ceilings need to be treated a little different than smooth ceilings. For popcorn ceilings we use spray paint to get a perfect finish every time. With knockdown ceilings, we choose between rolling or spraying based on what’s best for your room. Spraying often gets the job done quicker.

We take care of your home like it’s our own. Before we start, we’ll cover up your walls, furniture, and floors with drop cloths to keep everything spotless. We will also use painter’s tape meticulously to protect all ceiling fixtures. Just a heads up – after we paint, your home will smell like paint for a bit. It’s best to plan a day out and let your home air out for about 24 hours.

Professional Preparation and Tools

When it comes to ceiling painting, Mill Creek Painters uses only the highest quality tools and materials. We come equipped with an extension pole, paint tray, roller cover, and the right paint for your ceiling, ensuring a smooth and efficient paint job from start to finish.

Expert Techniques to Minimize Lap Marks

Our skilled painters start painting in one corner of the room, carefully working their way across the entire surface. We use a roller sleeve that matches the texture of your ceiling to avoid excess paint buildup and roller marks. This attention to detail helps minimize lap marks and ensures a seamless finish.

Precision in Applying the First Coat

Applying the first coat with precision is crucial for an even finish. We cover the entire room evenly, starting with the edges using a brush, then covering larger areas with a roller. We allow the painted area to become completely dry before applying any additional coats, ensuring a flawless result.

Meticulous Finishing Touches

After the first coat is dry, we inspect the ceiling for any missed spots or brush marks. If necessary, we sand lightly and then apply a second coat to achieve a well-painted ceiling. We use a paint tray to manage wet paint and avoid drips, ensuring a clean and professional finish.

The Professional Touch

For a flawless ceiling, our professional team at Mill Creek Painters handles every detail with care. We ensure that every painted area is treated meticulously, leaving you with a beautifully transformed ceiling that enhances the entire room.
