This is usually very obvious by all the paint being where it's not supposed to be and permanently stuck where you see it. 

Some types of paints are not very forgiving at all. Big drips and large amounts of drips on the trim and up high on the walls seem to be a favorite do it yourself painting finish. Sometimes a poor roller job with that $1 dollar store sleeve can cost you a whole new drywall interior because you tried to save $5.00.

Professional house painters only get to be professional house painters with a lot of practice at painting professional finishes. Most times those finishes don't wreck your home or house interior like the do it your self painter special. Anyone that does decide to go it alone could probably use a good guide to help you make progress on your paint job. 

If we had our say and our wish on professional interior painting we would always start with a good and thorough sanding and a good dusting and cleaning. On walls that seem to have bits of junk or what ever it might be on the we like to give those walls a good scrape with a 4 inch drywall knife or a 12 inch drywall knife if there is lots of bits of junk on the wall. Every home is different. 

A good sanding can take care of most of it but every now and then you need to go back in with a flat knife and give the walls a good scrape to get all the remaining bits of garbage off. With the ceilings, walls, and trim sanded and dusted, including dusting the tops of the door frames and window frames, it's usually a good time to give the floor a good cleaning with a quick vacuum job. 

Be sure you suck out all the corners. A clean and well maintained jobsite and ready to go surfaces make painting look it's best. Never skip out on sanding and dusting all surfaces you will be priming and painting on. It doesn't take too much to make everything sanded and dusted and clean and it's good professional painting practice. You will see it in your soon to be new painting finish if you don't.

You can always tell one type of professional painter from another type of professional painter by if they can spray paint with an airless spray painting machine. It takes years of practice to learn how to spray paint ceilings, walls, and trim, yet only a job or two to pick up brushing and rolling in the same ceilings, walls, and trims. 

Spray painting primer and spray painting paint puts a lot of primer and paint into the surface. That's exactly what you want. Lots of primer and lots of paint properly installed on the surface. More primer and more paint makes for more protection with the added benefit of looking more full and rich and much better looking well painted finish.

Where possible the professional painting contractors or contractor or painter or painting company that you do business with should be talking about spray painting you ceilings and spray painting all of your trim. You will always get a much better looking ceiling painting finish and much better looking trim painting finishes when your painter spray paints the ceilings and trims in your interior. 

All professional painters know this. If your painter is talking about brushing and rolling in your trim and your ceiling you are pretty much just wasting your money. Spray paint ceilings and spray paint trim for the best of the best results every time. Not saying brush and roll doesn't do a decent job, simply saying that spraying does a much better job.

The start of all great paint jobs always seem to start with a good prime job. Not a lot of potential painting customers or potential painting clients take time to consider the benefits of a good primer coat of primer applied before painting. Be it a low build primer or a high build primer, using primer on every job is always good painting business. 

For both the customers and clients perspective, as well as the painters or painting contractors. Using primer on every surface is always the right move. You and your painter likely have no idea what type of product currently sits on your soon to be painted surface. Not using primer is never a good idea. Using primer before painting is always a good idea.

Just like primer, not a lot of painters or decorators really give a lot of consideration to the paint and the painting tools that they use. As most customers and painters know, not all paint and not all painting tools are made equally or are the same. The right tools for the job, and the right painting products for the job can save time and money and provide better end results on your final finish.

Some paint and tools are simpler easier to use than others and save money on costs and more money getting the painter completed and out the door sooner. Using higher quality roller sleeves and paint brushes and sanders can make short work of any small or large sized paint job and really shave off the painting hours.

Rolling out the walls on the first coat of paint before brushing is a huge time saver. If you have ever brushed in a wall with paint before using the paint roller to roll paint onto the wall you likely have wasted a lot of time and material. If you ever notice how much time and material goes into your brush work. 

Some painters will leave a landing strip three or four or five or six inches wide or more. And then roll in paint over top of the landing strip to about an inch from the corner. On a wall or two okay it's not a big deal. Once you are out of one room and into the next you are already wasting your time. 

Rolling first allows a painter to bash and smash in the corners where walls meet and roll in the corners instead of brushing. On a full house repaint you can save cutting in the corners on every room and that will add up fast.
