Uneven Paint Cover

House Painting Sydney

With the right approach to painting, learnt through observation and experience, the professionals get great paint results, with problems being few and far between.

DIY painters may get a few issues with their home projects. These can be avoided with a professional approach.

Uneven Coverage

This isn’t a disaster, but it’s a paint job that just isn’t quite right. The paint doesn’t cover the wall evenly, so some parts are lighter and other are darker.

Having the right undercoat helps here. A tinted undercoat, tinted to something similar to the final colour, will help even a thin paint job look more even.

Often it is just a matter of adding a second coat of paint. This is basically redoing the job, which takes time. But at least nothing has to be undone before repainting.



Good roller technique will prevent uneven paintwork. We should cover each section, about a square meter or so, before we move to the next section. we should do this before the paint has started to dry. If we try to paint over partly dried paint the surface texture will be compromised.

Good lighting when we paint prevents mistakes. If the lighting is uneven we may not notice the uneven paintwork until it is too late. It is not too difficult to add a few light while painting.


If you have had to fill a few gaps and holes before painting you may find that the area you covered looks a little different to the rest of the wall, even after it has two coats of paint. This is because the texture of the filler is different to the rest of the wall, and perhaps it reflect light differently. Either way, the difference after painting is too obvious.

Use a good undercoat over any filler, perhaps over the whole wall, so the final paint has an even surface underneath.
