Rusty Nails Bleeding Through Paint
Common Painting Problems
Unsightly stains often occur after a metal nail has been painted. This is the result of improper preparation. If any amount of moisture is present at the time of painting, and sealed under the surface once paint has dried, the metal nail will rust, and the rust stain will bleed through the paint. Simply painting over the affected area will yield the same result, and an apparently good paint job will be spotted again within a few months.
At Student Works Painting, we do not want to waste your money for only a few months of aesthetic pleasure. We will fix the problem at the root.
Wherever a rusty nail is apparent, we will
- scrape down to the bare nail head
- scuff the metal, usually with a wire brush or steel wool
- once a shiny surface is evident, we will prime the nail head with red chromate primer or a stain blocking primer to prevent any future bleeding
Once this step has been taken, the surface is ready for the top coat.
When we finish our work, your home will be free of rusty nails bleeding through the finish coat. The surface will look uniform and fresh. Most importantly, you can rest assured the dollars you spend on your home will not diminish in lustre, because we have solved your problem of recurring rust spots.
