Before you start a paint project, there are a few things you need to know about preparatory products and final coats. If you’ve got walls that have been previously repaired or painted with colours much darker or brighter than the new paint colour, it’s important to use primers and sealers to prepare a surface for painting. Don’t skip primers and sealers if you have marker or crayon marks, water stains, and pet stains on your walls or woods as they tend to bleed through paint. For finish paints, you can choose from latex and alkyd. Latex paint is easier to use, gives a great finish to surfaces, and has minimum odours. Alkyd paint is a popular choice for furniture, cabinetry and trims, and gives a glossy and durable finish to surfaces.

Selecting the paint sheen for your space is just as important as the paint colour. Depending on the room type, the usage and location of the room, and the vibe you want to achieve, pick the right paint finish with Carter's (Truro) Limited.
Flat Flat paints do not reflect light, giving them a matte finish. Such paints help hide the imperfections that may be present on the surface.
Satin Satin finish has a soft, beautiful, and velvety sheen. Depending upon the lighting in the room, this finish can appear to be either matte or glossy.
Eggshell and low-lustre Eggshell paint finishes have a subtle sheen similar to the surface of an eggshell. The degree of lustre of eggshell finish is lower than satin and higher than flat.
Semi-gloss Semi-gloss paints are easier to clean and more durable than satin finish paints.
Gloss Gloss paints have the most durable, stain-resistant, and hardest finish of all paints.
High-gloss High-gloss paints are the utmost level of sheen for walls. Reflecting light in a mirror-like manner, such finish goes extremely well with dark or dull colour walls.
