Undercoat & Ceiling White


When choosing the type of decoration required in a room, the level of finish to the plasterboard linings needs careful consideration.

The Manufacturers recommendation for the proper coverage of plasterboard is for the use of a suitable sealer over the entire surface in order to equalise porosity.

Choice of colours is important as darker colours tend to highlight imperfections. White, or light colours, give better reflection and are recommended for ceilings.

If gloss paints are to be used in large open plan rooms with vast areas of uncurtained windows, then the highest level of finish is essential. However, if cost factors preclude this investment, then very careful consideration must be given to:

  • The placement of windows
  • The type of lighting
  • The standard of paint finish
  • The positioning of joints; both butt and recess

Note: horizontal joints are recommended for walls with areas of severe glancing light.

PAINT SPECIFICATION

For best results a three coat system is recommended with a sealer being used for the first coat:

  • to prevent undue absorption of the binder from the subsequent coat of paint.
  • to equalise the surface between two entirely different materials.
PREPARATION

The following comments should be taken as a guide, for the preparation and paintings of plasterboard.

  • All surfaces should be clean and dusted down prior to painting.
  • First coat should be a recommended sealer rolled (not sprayed),
  • Apply two coats (undiluted) - paint with brush or roller,
  • Lightly sand between coats.
