Plastering: A lasting quality paint job for your church interior painting project is dependent upon the plastering and prep work that forms the "canvas" for your church interior. Therefore, your church’s plastering should be performed by experienced craftsman, plasterers or a professional church interior painting contractor with experience in traditional plaster and church interiors. Loose plaster in your church sanctuary / church nave from the church walls and church ceiling must be either re-secured or removed to provide a solid foundation for your church interiors (church sanctuary / church nave) renovation and plastering project. Proper plastering requires that any cracks in your plastering must be dug out and properly filled; surface patching and skim coatings may be unsightly and less durable; therefore, they're not recommended for your church interior painting, plastering and renovation project. Elastomeric plaster and finish coats provide a durable finish that is more tolerant to the slight movements that are a major contributor to cracks in the church plastering. New plaster should always be primed prior to painting. Perform your church's plaster repairs prior to painting your church ceiling and church walls or before painting the church sanctuary / church nave as part of your church interior restoration.

And we always chose high-quality paints that provide better coverage and last longer.
