What order 4 bst results
 
Hope you can help. Heres my current situation. I have a newly installed hardwood floor. I have new pre-primed prehung doors waiting for pick-up. My wife NOW wants new interior paint. The last time we painted we did NOT paint the ceilings so I would like to start with repainting the ceiling first. The trim will probably be pre-primed MDF. So pros have recommended painting the trim AFTER installation and AFTER caulking top edge of molding. Can you fellas help me determine the best order of INSTALLATION AND PAINTING the following? That would sure help me alot. Thanks in advance.

A. PREP & PAINT CEILING
B. INSTALL NEW INTERIOR DOORS
C. PAINT PRE-HUNG INTERIOR DOORS AND JAMBS.
D. INSTALL & PREP PRE-PRIMED MDF MOLDING
E. PREP AND PAINT INTERIOR WALLS
F. PAINT MOLDING

Prep and paint all ceilings and walls up to one finsih coat , then install and prep door units and all woodwork.If there is no crowm moulding you can put finish coats on ceiling at any time. Finish paint the walls, then all the woodwork. All the spackling of nail holes and caulking should be finished before you begin any finish painting except for the ceilings, unless there is crown moulding, in which case you want to spackle and caulk it also before finish paint.

Another suggestion is to prime and paint all the ceilings.

Finish coat the doors and jambs also. You can carefully open the doors while attached to the jambs so they stand up for you.

Prime the walls, if you're going to prime them.

Hang the doors and trim, caulk, fill. Finish coat the walls, then the trim.

I agree with what's been said. I would also say that make sure you have your walls painted and finished before installing casing around the door. It is a pain doing all that taping.

The way i would do it is, Prime and finish ceilings, place all trim up, putty, caulk, prime the trim, finish the trim, curt in walls and roll em. Sand walls, walls again, repeat intill desired look. Then run all base and shoe mold.

Disassemble, remove and store doors.

Prime ceiling/walls.

Prep, prime and finish spray all trim.

Mask crown, base, chair rail/wainscot and door heads, then finish coat ceilings.

Finish coat walls.

Prep, prime, spray finish coat and re-hang doors.
