High Temp Stove Paint Questions from Lindemann Chimney Supply

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Thank you, Lindemann Chimney Supply.  If your customers are looking for a quick, inexpensive way to update their fireplace, a coat of high temp stove paint may be the answer. High temp stove paint is a great way to add a new, fresh look to the unit without a complete replacement. Another great reason to use these products – the application is easy.

Lindemann Chimney for FORRESTHere are some common questions our customers have about high temp stove paint:

How do I prep the surface prior to painting?
To ensure a lasting adhesion of the paint, the surface should be properly prepped prior to application. First, it is important that all rust is removed. High Temp Paint does not stop oxidization. For this reason, rust will reappear once again if not completely eliminated. You will also want to make sure you have a bare surface to work with; one free of grease, oil and other contaminants. Use Stove Bright Paint Prep to easily clean the surface before painting.

  1. “In a small room, keep the walls the same color as the primary upholstered furniture. The room will seem twice the size.” – Jeffrey Bilhuber
  2.  White brightens whatever it’s with, but it can also be harsh. Try off-whites instead, “when you put a warm white next to a color, it will look bright and crisp,” says designer Barry Dixon.
  3.  “The era of the bright white ceiling is over,” says Elaine Griffin, New York City designer. Paint the ceiling a shade lighter than walls to visually raise it and avoid jarring stop-start seams. For a shade darker to bring it down and add coziness. Go a shade lighter to open the room up and increase light.
