FAQs

What type of paint do you use and why?

We primarily use quality products from Haymes, Dulux, Porters and Taubmans. If there is another brand you’re interested in using, then we are happy to accommodate your preferences.

How many coats of paint are included in a quote?

We apply 3 coats to all new surfaces and 2 to all existing surfaces, although some projects require more or less which will be discussed with you prior to starting.

What are the ideal weather conditions for exterior painting?

The ideal temperature is between 10-30 degrees and all surfaces are required to be dry

If I buy all of my own materials, will I be able to save money that way?

You will not save money purchasing your own paint or materials, we receive much greater discounts as a painting business and we pass these benefits onto you in all of our quotes.

Can we quote over the phone?

Unforunately we do not quote over the phone as we prefer to give you the most accurate and detailed quote as possible, which is why we offer free on-site quotes and accept all architectural plans for quotation via email.

Do you offer a warranty?

We offer a manufacturers warranty, which depends on brand and type of paint being used.

What is the typical longevity of a new paint job?

The longevity of our work is determined by a number of factors:

1: Where you are located (whether you’re near the ocean, or in an area that is prone to high humidity, etc)

2: The current surface material.

3: Whether your project is new or existing.

4: If existing, the quality of your previous paint job.

5: How much preparation is taken previous to the application of paint e.g. some people like to save money by doing as minimal preparation as possible, others don’t mind and just want a superior finish with high durability/longevity (we always take the time to make sure surfaces are prepared correctly, prior to paint application, unless you as the client specifies not to.

How long will a job take?

This varies based on a number of things such as: Size of the project, weather, decorative products being used (wallpaper, render, textured paints etc) and how many painters that are assigned to your project at the time.

Do you advise on colour selection?

We are more than happy to give our advice and expertise on choosing a colour with you and we also carry a number of different colour fan decks from the most used brands to help you find the colour you’re looking for.
