Preparation and painting of walls – See our system in action!

Preparation is key critical to any successful painting job and over the years we have developed and perfected our preparation system.

The first step is to remove surface contamination and peeling paint, we achieve this by hydro-washing the surface using a high pressure washer.

After hydro-washing, the surface is then inspected and if we find that the plaster is loose or hollow we then remove the plaster.

We don’t use polyfiller to fill cracks because it is gypsum or lime based and softens back when coming into contact with water and then causes paint to peel.

Instead we fill cracks using a cement based filling compound mixed with saflex which is a latex based adhesive liquid, this ensures that the surface is firm and non-friable.

After the cracks have been filled, very often the surface becomes uneven due to patching the old plaster with new plaster (differing densities in plaster). Where necessary we skim the entire surface using a thin layer of Deco-skim (cement based skimming compound) this is to achieve a more uniform finish.

The next step is to apply one coat of pigmented plaster primer or bonding liquid to newly filled/skimmed areas this is to prime the surface, prior to painting.

Now it’s time to apply the top coat!

Colour selection is always a difficult choice to make, that’s why we ask our clients to go to their nearest paint shop and select three or four colour swatches. When selecting colours never make your final choice off the swatches, because these are computer generated colours, it always differs to the actual paint and lighting etc. also plays a big part. That is why we mix up actual paint samples and do brush outs for our clients, so they have an accurate idea of how the colour will look.

The end result is a paint job that you will always be proud of!
