It is a great idea to prime woodwork on both sides and applying one coat of finish paint on its exposed face before it is installed.
It sounds to me as if you are trying to install pre-painted trim on top of walls that have been finish-painted.
It is not uncommon for a wall to get scuffed by a hammer as the finish carpenter taps the edges of trim to adjust it. Find the most professional painters by using my Interior Painting & Staining Checklist. There can be long large and small cracks between the woodwork and walls that should be filled with caulk.


It is a smart thing to brush a very small amount of paint up onto the edges of all the woodwork as you are covering the caulk with the wall paint. The finished look is as good or better than if the walls had been painted with the best rollers. If the walls and trim are already painted, the resulting caulk job will look like pinstriping as it is doubtful the caulk color will perfectly match the color of the finish paint. After the wall paint is dry, I would then apply the final coat of paint to the woodwork using an expensive two inch tapered brush. Immediately stroke the caulk twice with the damp, not dripping, sponge to remove any excess caulk that smeared onto the wall or woodwork.


The final coat of woodwork paint extends to the edge of the woodwork where it touches up against the walls. If you have minimal spray painting experience, I suggest you practice in a garage or closets before moving out into rooms you will see each day. Touch up painting of the spray-painted walls with a brush can also yield less than satisfactory results.
