Usually, painting contractor in Gold Coast say that it is possible to paint over the stains be it on the walls or the ceiling. However, there are a few exceptions- for grease and for mold, the cleaning step is essential so that the dirt won’t resurface through the freshly applied coat of paint.

  • To repair cracks sand holes

Sealant also makes your ceilings waterproof, so now you can rest assured when your kid plays water gun inside the home. You don’t have to worry about molds getting into the roof and ceiling because the surface will be waterproof.

These days, people also prefer getting the focal wall painted in the same color as the ceiling.
