I finished up a job today that was going really well. The homeowner was talking about referrals and more work on the home. The last thing that I needed to do was put a coat of paint on the baseboards of the finished basement. I painted the baseboards and started cleaning up. The homeowner noticed sagging in several places on the baseboard. It was too dry to fix with a brush. I told the homeowner I would sand it down and reapply tommorow. Not sure what happened. Looked good during application but sagged after completion.

PC sags bad, always be ready with a brush, it will level out even if partially dry.

Might've been cooler in the basement. PC will sag. Gotta keep an eye on it. Wet sand it with 220 or 320 and the sags should come out without making a mess of the rest of it. Easy fix.

I'm spraying ProClassic Latex on doors, door frames, and baseboard tomorrow. Would you guys recommend spraying 2 thin coats? It's also located in a basement remodel, hope it doesn't sag

Really depends on the temps etc. I always used a FFTip when shooting it. Just put it on until it looks good and no more. Maybe try one door and casing and wait 20 minutes to see how your application is. It's hard to do (waiting that is), but is better than getting sags on everything if it ends up being too heavy.

I've been using a 210 tip for trim, but I've been using Cashmere. Would this tip work or should I pick up a FF tip? I'm using a Graco Pro x7

On a side note (sorry to threadjack) How do I stand up Bi-fold doors with the pin at the bottom? I have 3 pocket doors, 2 regular doors, and 3 bi-fold doors. Have only sprayed regular solid doors before by popping pins and using old trim to hold together at a 90 degree angle.

This will most likely be my method, I like light sanding in-between coats. Makes me feel secure in the application, Take extra steps so I don't have to come back for my warranty

Silly me, I didn't even think they were removable =/ lol. How about a stirring stick under the door? I always answer yes when they ask me if I'd like some, even though I never use them. Just shake the out of 'em.

How should I go about the pocket door? I'd rather not get any on the track, I was going to brush n roll 'em.

Vaseline ... rub in on track ... spray ... wipe off

great for fire labels, ul rated stickers , anything you don't won't paint to stick to

How long have you been painting?

PS
caution leaving Vaseline around painters uncontrolled can cause side effects

I've been painting for a solid 6 years, 12 on and off. The other 6 on and off I was tiling/framing/painting and school. I did pick up a lot of side jobs painting the past 5 years, enough to keep me busy, now I'm doing it full time.

After I finish a job, I canvass the hell outta their neighborhood.
