There are a number of paints, varnishes and materials that may be required for the job, depending on the application and material you are looking to paint or varnish.
With regards to paint, there are two basic types of paint – (i) Water-based paints use water for a binding paint. They are also easier to clean with water from brushes or other tools and surfaces. (ii) Solvent-based (Oil-based) paints use mineral spirit and are very durable and water-resistant. They often used for professional jobs, but are more difficult to clean during or after the paint job. Mineral spirit or thinner-based products are used to clean oil-based paints, as required.
For certain jobs you may need to apply an protective undercoat called a primer. One or two primer coats are normally required, before applying your finishing coats. There are a variety of finishing coat types and colours for various applications. Finishing coat colours can also be mixed to give you a ‘customised’ shade for your job. Keep in mind that choosing a very unique shade of finishing paint, may be difficult to accurately match in future if painting needs to be redone and you have run out of the original paint.
Finishing paints are normally classified in these general categories, but new options may become available as the paint technology advances: Flat, Eggshell, matt, gloss and satin.
There are usually dedicated paint types and brands for interior walls, exterior walls, ceilings, bathroom or kitchens, floors, roofing tiles or sheet metal, other matals, wood types etc.
Basic materials and tools that may be needed for your paint job could include: Scrappers, sand paper, sanding machines, plastic sheeting, tape, Stanley knife, various brushes, rollers, painting trays, containers and/or buckets, ladders, cleaning agents, primers and the finishing paints required for the job, to name just a few items.
We can assist you with sourcing and applying the correct paints for your specific requirements, including:
Maintaining existing surfaces can often require a lot more work than painting or varnishing a new surface. Paint or varnish on existing surfaces may have started to blister or flake and will need to be remove and the surface correctly prepared for your new coat of paint or varnish. This usually involves properly scraping, sanding and cleaning surfaces before you can even think about repainting. Failure to do this properly will lead to disappointing results and will have been a waste of your time and money, as the job will probably need to be redone.
We can assist with advising and completing your painting maintenance and repair jobs.
