How Many Coats Of House Paint Do You Need?
When you're getting an estimate for house painting many painting contractors are offering two coats of paint as part of their pricing.
The question is, are you really getting two coats of paint? The answer is, it depends on how your house painter defines two coats of paint. In most cases painters will define two coats as a spray and backroll as two coats of paint. This is NOT two coats of paint.
Paint manufacturers like Sherwin Williams and painting contractors like TRICO PAINTING, define two coats as applying one coat of paint per the manufacturer's recommendations and allowing the first coat to completely dry before applying a second coat.
