A periodic painting maintenance program not only keeps your properties looking fresh; it also allows us to spot potential defects before they become costly and widespread.
For exterior, the better the finish, the better the visual impact and the higher your property value or rental income will be. The more durable finish will require a lower level of maintenance and hence lower maintenance costs, whilst maintaining a high positive visual impact.
When you add up the cost of paint and the price of labour, painting, like any other contractual work represents a considerable investment. So it makes good sense to extend the life of your paintwork for as long as possible.
Other reasons are:
Once we have given your property a fresh face or a new look, we highly recommend that you engage in periodic maintenance. A once yearly pressure clean of the exterior façade not only helps protect that new look from the elements but it also allows us to spot potential defects, before they become costly problems.
Assess paintwork, steel, powder-coated surfaces, dirt and grime build-up, movement, mould etc. and address any potential problems.
Clean off built-up dirt and debris from your painted surfaces that could eat into paint or metal finishes.
Touch up paintwork and perform spot repainting where necessary.
Area which are prone to premature breakdown from high traffic or weather elements may require repainting.
Keep your interiors looking new and delay the requirement for a full repaint.
Areas showing minor damage will be cleaned, prepared and repainted using the original painting system
All deteriorated or damaged sealant will be removed and replaced to protect against water ingress.
‘Clanricarde’ is a heritage five-storey building with street-level garages, situated in Elizabeth Bay. The original building on the site was a three-storey residence built in the late 1890’s, which was later extended by two storeys, incorporating a lift. The rear of the building, was also extended and sections of the building were enclosed using timber cladding.
The walls of the original building are solid brick. The two upper storeys are solid in-situ concrete, and the enclosed sections of the building are protected by timber cladding. All three materials rely on the integrity of the external paint for ‘waterproofness’.
Most of the building’s windows are timber, double hung, casement, sliding and awning sashes, with some aluminium windows.
Our scope of work was to paint the building masonry, windows, pipework, garages, entrance gates, handrail and security gates. Prior to painting, we needed to perform remedial work such as repairing the spalling, cracks and holes, replacing rusted brackets, and repairs to the window frames.
All delaminated, flaking and loose paint was stripped back and the building was washed. For the gates and garage doors, all flaking and loose paint was stripped and the metal was treated with rust-proof spray before being powder coated.
