What if I want to sample your paint colors first?
- Send us an email at email@example.com with your name and contact information and address. We will gladly mail you a color swatch.
Are Visions’ paint low VOC?
- Our maximum VOC is <50 grams/liter.
What if I run out of paint and need to order another one? How consistent are your colors?
- Although we always guarantee paint quality, colors may slightly vary with every batch. We recommend using the same batch for the same project. If you know you are going to run out of paint soon, or you realize you did not order enough paint, try to finish up painting the wall corner to corner before moving to the next wall. Do not stop in the middle of the wall and then continue painting with a new can of paint.
Can I thin the paint?
- Our products are intended for use at package consistency. If thinning is desired, do not thin more than 1/2 pint per gallon.
VQC PAINT 101HOW MUCH PAINT WILL YOU NEED?
- Helpful Tips
- One gallon of paint covers approximately 350 square feet.
- A standard door accounts for approximately 20 square feet.
- An average window accounts for approximately 15 square feet.
- The Calculation
- To find the area of a wall, we multiply wall height x wall width.
- The estimate divides the total square footage by 350, as one gallon of paint covers 350 square feet.
- Your paint calculation will update if you change the number of desired coats of paint.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SHEEN
- Paint tray/Roller pan
- Paint stir sticks
- Paint brush
- Paint roller
- Paint roller covers
- Painters tape
- Drop cloth or plastic cover
- Make sure furniture are moved away from walls and covered with drop cloths.
- Use a screwdriver to remove switch plates, vent and outlet covers.
- Cover any door or hardware and wall trims with painter’s tape or plastic bags.
- If you are painting a ceiling, make sure to protect hanging fixtures like lights and fans.
- Open windows or door to ensure adequate ventilation.
- Wash the walls if needed. Use regular detergent or soap. Use TSP (Tri Sodium Phosphate) for heavy grease build-up. Use bleach for mildew.
- Remove old, cracked, or flaking paint. Use a paint scraper or sandpaper too smooth the surface.
- Find all the flaws or damaged areas before priming. Fill any cracks, chips, splinters, and nail holes with patching plaster, spackling compound, or wood putty, whichever is appropriate.
- Before priming, your surface must be clean, dry and sound.
- If you are painting drywall that has never been painted before, you will need to prime it first.
- If you have touched up a lot of cracks and filled in a lot of nail holes on a wall, prime the wall, or at least the areas you have covered with putty or drywall compound, before painting it.
- If you are applying flat paint on a wall that previously was painted with a high or semi-gloss finish, prime it first.
- If you’re changing the color of your wall from very dark to very light, priming it first will make it easier to cover with the lighter color and could save you from applying a second or even third coat of paint.
- If you are painting the whole house, paint in this order: ceiling, walls, window, doors, trim
- Always start by cutting around the edges of the surface using a paint brush.
- Paint the rest of the surface using a roller while the edges are still wet.
- Remove the tape before the paint dries to avoid removing the paint with the tape.
- If thinning is desired, do not thin more than 1/2 pint per gallon.
CLEAN-UP AND DISPOSAL
- Clean tools and equipment with soapy water
- If the container is empty or has only very little left, remove the lid and let the paint dry out on its own.
- If you have a lot of left over paint, consider donating to a community center or a Habitat for Humanity ReStore near you.
- If you live in one of the 11 states with paint stewardship program by PaintCare, you may take your leftover paint to any of their drop-off locations.
