You can paint over semi-gloss paint with another layer of semi-gloss paint without issue.
It is possible to paint over semi-gloss paint with another layer of semi-gloss paint without issue. You may find that the new layer of paint does not adhere as well to the previous layer, and you may want to consider priming the surface before painting.
The new layer of paint will adhere to the old layer, and will not cause any problems.
It is perfectly fine to paint semi-gloss over semi-gloss paint. The new layer of paint will adhere to the old layer, and will not cause any problems. The only exception to this would be if the paint is peeling or flaking off in areas; in this case, you would need to remove the old paint completely before applying a new layer.
While there are a few ways that you could technically get away with painting over a semi-gloss paint, it’s generally not recommended. The reason being that semi-gloss paint is designed to be more durable and hold up better to wear-and-tear than other paints. If you paint over it with another semi-gloss paint, you could end up with a sticky or tacky surface.
If you try to paint over semi-gloss paint with a different type of paint, you may have problems.
If you’re not sure what type of paint you have on your walls, it’s best to err on the side of caution and choose a different finish. Otherwise, you may end up with a paint job that doesn’t look quite right.
The new paint may not adhere to the old paint, and may peel or flake off.
If you are painting over a semi-gloss paint with a new semi-gloss paint, you likely will not have any issues. The old paint and the new paint should be of the same type (in this case, both semi-gloss), so they should adhere to each other without trouble. However, if you are painting over a semi-gloss paint with a different kind of paint (e.g., gloss or flat/matte), that new paint may not adhere to the old paint as well, and may peel or flake off.
