Skim coating is often needed

Lots of patching. Whoever did the finishing work 25 years ago, didn't do a very good job, so all the seems in the drywall had to be re-coated. We couldn't leave it like it was.

We use a product called Dust Control by USG, which cuts down on the air born dust significantly.
Once the patching is completed, we prime all of our patch work with oil primer. Using oil primer, seals the patches, so that they don't degrade the sheen of the top coat. It also prevents any possible staining from coming through the top coat as well.

Proper Prep Leads to the Best Results

We also primed, and painted the living room ceiling, and painted the living room walls:
