How to paint the stairwell

Wall Paint stairwell requires the use of a special ladder extendable legs. There are many kinds of designs of stairs, so it is better to plan the process before you start painting. The height of the ladder to be used depends on the height of the shaft wall. If this wall is a window, then you must take into consideration that will be painted around it. If the wall has a handrail, then you have to use masking tape to cover it. You can use a mini roller to paint the space between the wall and the handrail.

How to paint the stairwell


Placing masking tape on the edge of the stairs on the side of the wall. Keep the tape straight line along the ups and steps. Place tape along the edges of the landing of the stairs if you have one. Let loose the outer edge of the tape.

Masking paper unwinds 12 inches (30 cm) along the length of the stairs and bend under the outer edge of the masking tape. Press the masking tape to hold the paper in place.

Locate the ladder at A on the top of the stairwell.

Pour the paint into a container of hand. Place the brush inside the container and hang the mini roll to one side.

Climb the ladder in A and mark the wall from the ceiling angle of the stairwell to the point of this angle which is directly above the first step. Pinta far as you can reach and then down the stairs and mark the angle of the wall and above ground or socket. Marking paint means a straight line around the perimeter edges of the wall.

Put the extension ladder on the upper echelons. Turn it so that the steps are parallel to the wall and adjust the height on the lowest rung until both legs of the ladder are firmly on the steps. One leg is shorter and one is longer to accommodate the difference in height between the steps. Lock adjustable foot of the ladder in place. Then hook the ladder on the wall.

Climb the ladder and continues to set the angle between the ceiling and the wall. Move down the stairs until you reach the base of the stairs and around the ceiling angle is marked. If the hole has two steps sectors separated by a break, use the ladder on A break in the wall to mark the adjacent angle.

Removes the stairs.

Go to the top of the stairs and mark the edge of the wall around the stairs. Paint a straight line with the brush through the wall following the shape of the steps to up and down until you reach the base. The edge around the wall should be 3 to 4 inches (7.5 to 10 cm) wide from the corners and toward the center of the wall. Go over this edge with the mini roller to eliminate brush marks.

Place the paint in a bucket of 5 gallons (20 L) and roller cover hangs on the edge of the bucket to the inner side.

Placing the roller cover on the shaft of the frame and the extension rod screwed into the handle frame.

Dip the roller into the paint bucket repeatedly until the cloth fibers are loaded roller with paint.

Go back to the top of the ladder and painting the wall with splashes up and down zigzag with the roller. Apply even pressure to the surface of the wall to prevent them from forming roller lines. Extends the rod to paint the higher areas of the wall. Paint passes previously marked on the edges of the top down until the wall is completely covered.

Remove the tape and masking paper an hour after you’ve finished painting. Clean the tools for you.
