Wellington painter and decorator Dave Smith and the paint manufacturers recommend that preparation is the key to a good paint job.
On site lead paint testing
It is important to carry out a lead-based paint test to ascertain the presence of lead in the substrate of older properties.
When this process is completed we waterblast all surfaces that require decorating. This involves using a machine that produces variable water pressure.
Once we have established access to the areas that need to be painted (including textured surfaces and roofs), if necessary, we apply and treat surfaces with a chemical house wash. Also a moss mould and lichen treatment to neutralise any contaminants and infestation that may be evident.
The removal of loose and flaking paint is essential as is the treatment of rust and the repair of rotten or damaged timber. Having thirty plus years experience preparing houses in the Wellington region for painting, we know attention to detail is paramount.
Your property is then ready to be painted to best trade practice by our skilled house painting specialists.
