Optimal Coating and Sealing Application Techniques

Explore our comprehensive guide to refinishing application methods at New Finish in Michigan.

At New Finish, we understand the importance of not just revitalizing your spaces but also ensuring they stand the test of time. Our application methods for coating and sealing are designed with both aesthetics and durability in mind, tailored for both residential and commercial projects. We use a meticulous approach, starting with surface preparation — the cornerstone of any successful refinishing project. This involves thorough cleaning, sanding, and priming to ensure a flawless canvas. Our team then applies high-quality coatings using techniques that guarantee a uniform finish, whether we’re working on hardwood floors, kitchen cabinets, or outdoor decks.


What sets New Finish apart is our commitment to not just meeting, but exceeding industry standards with innovative sealing solutions that protect your investment. We employ the latest in sealant technology, offering a variety of finishes from matte to high gloss, all designed to resist wear, tear, and the elements. Our expertise in selecting the right type of sealant, whether it’s for waterproofing a bathroom or adding a UV-resistant layer to an outdoor surface, ensures long-lasting protection and beauty. By integrating cutting-edge techniques and materials with traditional craftsmanship, we offer unique refinishing solutions that are both visually stunning and enduring.


Brush Technique

At New Finish, our brush technique is a testament to the precision and care we bring to every project. This traditional application method allows for meticulous control over the finish, making it ideal for detailed work and smaller areas where precision is paramount. We select high-quality brushes that match the viscosity of the paint or varnish being used, ensuring a smooth, streak-free finish. The brush technique is especially effective for projects requiring a handcrafted look, as it enables the application of thicker coats that enhance the texture and depth of the surface. Our skilled artisans are trained to use various brush strokes to achieve the desired effect, whether it’s a classic smooth finish or a more textured appearance.

Sprayer Use

In contrast, our use of sprayers at New Finish represents the cutting edge of refinishing technology, offering a fast and efficient way to cover large areas or complex surfaces with an even coat. Sprayer use allows for a finer atomization of the paint or sealant, resulting in a flawless, factory-like finish that is hard to achieve with any other application method. This technique is particularly beneficial for achieving uniform coverage on intricate surfaces or those with hard-to-reach areas. Our experts are adept at adjusting the sprayer settings, such as pressure and nozzle size, to suit the specific requirements of each project, ensuring optimal application whether we’re working with lacquers, stains, or paints.

Roller Application

Roller application is another critical technique in our arsenal, striking a balance between the meticulous detail of brushwork and the speed of sprayer use. Rollers are particularly effective for covering large, flat surfaces like walls, ceilings, and floors with efficiency and ease. The choice of roller material (e.g., foam, synthetic, or natural fibers) and nap length is tailored to the type of coating being applied and the texture of the surface, allowing for a customizable finish, from ultra-smooth to heavily textured. Our experts excel in roller techniques that avoid common pitfalls such as bubbling, lint marks, and uneven coverage, ensuring a consistent and durable finish.

Combining Techniques for Optimal Results

Combining various application techniques in refinishing projects is not just a matter of versatility; it’s a strategic approach to achieving optimal results that cater to the specific needs and intricacies of each project. At New Finish, we understand that the key to a successful refinishing outcome lies in the thoughtful integration of brush, sprayer, and roller techniques, each chosen for their particular strengths and the unique demands of the surface being treated.


Strategic Application Synergy


The synergy between different application methods allows us to enhance both the aesthetics and longevity of the finishes we provide. For instance, initial layers might be applied using a sprayer to ensure a uniform and quick cover over large areas, taking advantage of the sprayer’s ability to evenly coat surfaces with complex geometries or textures. This step is crucial for establishing a solid foundation, especially in commercial settings where durability and time efficiency are paramount.

Following the foundational layers, brush techniques are often employed for detailed work such as trim, edges, and hard-to-reach areas. The precision that brushwork affords is unmatched, allowing for the meticulous application of finish in areas that sprayers might overspray or rollers might not reach effectively. This method is particularly beneficial for projects that require a touch of craftsmanship, highlighting the skill and attention to detail of our artisans.

Finally, roller techniques might be utilized for intermediate or final coats on flat surfaces where the goal is to achieve a consistent, textured finish. Rollers are excellent for applying paint or varnish swiftly over large swathes, providing a uniform texture that is visually appealing and touch-friendly. The choice of roller—foam, microfiber, or wool—depends on the type of finish and the desired texture, allowing for a customized approach to each project.


Customized Approach for Each Project


This multi-faceted approach ensures that every inch of the surface receives the most appropriate treatment, blending the strengths of each application method to achieve a finish that is both beautiful and resilient. It’s a testament to our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction, underpinning our reputation as a leader in the refinishing industry.

Moreover, combining these techniques allows us to adapt to a wide range of materials and finishes, from wood and metal to concrete and plastic. Whether we’re working on a delicate piece of antique furniture that requires the gentle touch of a brush or a large commercial space that benefits from the efficiency of a sprayer, our expertise in leveraging the right combination of techniques ensures superior results.


Continuous Learning and Improvement


At New Finish, we continuously refine our application methods through ongoing training and keeping abreast of advancements in refinishing technologies and materials. This commitment to excellence and innovation ensures that we can tackle any refinishing challenge, combining time-honored techniques with the latest industry standards to deliver finishes that truly stand the test of time.
