Preparing walls for repainting

Print-friendly Version


My walls have a few layers of paint with the top coat peeling in places. How do I prepare these to repaint?


First of all, scrape away as much of the paint as possible and sand back to a smooth finish. Wash the walls to remove any dirt and flakes of old paint.

Apply a sealer. Check with your paint supplier to work out the best one for your walls.

Apply two coats of paint for an even finish.
