Today's blog is full of a lot of helpful terms in the painting industry.
Primer is basically a high adhesion coat that usually goes on first to cover up like raw wood or surfaces that might have a hard time with the new coat sticking to it.
Bleeding is when you can see the previous paint coat show through the coats you're applying. Usually, that happens you're painting over a dark color with a light color. You might see some bleeding after the first couple of coats might take a third coat.
This is the texture that you see on interior walls that are left from a roller. It's called that simply because if you look closely, it looks like the texture of an orange peel. This is actually a good thing because it helps to hide the flaws in the walls. If it was perfectly smooth, then you would see every little installation through the drywall.
Flashing would be like a noticeable difference in paint on a surface. For example, if you needed a touch-up on your walls after the job has been complete, you would be able to notice a slight difference in the shading on the wall. This is true even if it is the same exact color from the same paint can.
Blistering is the bubbling of the paint, and it happens quite often if we paint aluminum. If the previous coating was not applied correctly, maybe the surface wasn't cleaned correctly, or they didn't use a primer coat on the aluminum.
