Category: Albert Park House Painters
We’re your Albert Park House Painters, by the Bay, next to the city. The best of both worlds.
Albert Park is a great collection of terraced period houses. And as so. They provide us with lots of opportunities to show off our painting expertise, and develop our house painters’ skills. We’re your exterior house painters to deal with the detailed and decorative aspects. And your interior house painters, who can make your rooms pizzazz! Why? Because we can.
As interior house painters Albert Park, we get to paint a lot of banisters and balustrades. For us they’re the interior version of picket fences. Our techniques and experience are the key components in doing the job well, and looking good.
Our client chose a contempory colour scheme and we used it throughout the house. This took into consideration the age and style of the house. The client reinstalled many original features, which brought the house back to its former standing. The result is an elegant and classic house, that will look as good in 100 years time as it does now.
Vivid White Paint Problems
One of the most problematic aspects for us painters is coverage. Coverage is the paint’s ability to cover the intended material. Vivid White is a problem. Vivid White is intended to be used as a base, to be tinted up to a colour, so it lacks in depth, making it thin and watery. Technically it is still supposed to cover in two coats, but due to the lack of tinters, we find it rarely does.
We would recommend using ‘Builders’ White’ instead. It looks white, you can’t spot the difference, and covers better. The only difference is a small dash of black in it!
A great house and a great exterior painting project in Albert Park. Years of needing a bit more love and attention showed. Peeling paint and repares left this house looking damaged and unwanted. As Albert Park Painters, we can change this around. But it’s not just sanding, filling and painting required this time. This painting project needs a little something else. We need to make sure everyone; you, me and the general public are safe.
Permits galore were needed to make the Albert Park Painting happen, and yes we can deal with all the paperwork for you. Permit for the electricity cables, permit for the street/pavement access and permit to used the street/pavement. Along with street diagrams/site maps. A lot of paperwork for us Albert Park House Painters.
Painting Equipment and Tools
“When you think of painting, you think of brushes and rollers maybe? Well this one was boom lifts, harnesses, bollards, street signs and ‘caution’ tape. It resulted in lots of procedures and practices to make sure everyone was safe.”
