Area Preparation: Surface must be dry. Remove all loose and peeling paint, dirt, grease, and any other surface contaminants. Putty all nail holes, and caulk all cracks and open seams. Sand all glossy, rough, and patched surfaces. Masonry and plaster surfaces must be allowed to cure for 30 days prior to painting.
