The Process

Each project begins with an onsite inspection to determine your requirements, view the work area, make recommendations, and discuss any options. We explain to you the steps involved in the painting process, paying particular attention to the level of preparation work needed to achieve the desired finish.

We will then prepare a detailed written quotation so you know that what is discussed is what will be carried out.

An excellent paint job, in some cases, can take many times longer to complete than an average one, especially if the project requires extensive preparation to make sound the existing surfaces. This will be reflected in the price. The quality of  workmanship we provide combined with the premium products we use, will ensure you get a job that will last the distance.

When it comes to carrying out the work, we keep you informed throughout the process. If anything unexpected arises, for example location of rotten timber or any other building issues, we will bring this to your attention and discuss and make recommendations.

Here are some things to expect from us when working in and around your home.

Interior Work
  • Cover and protect all furniture, flooring and adjacent surfaces from paint spills and dust
  • Ensure surfaces are clean to allow good adhesion of the first coat of paint
  • Use low VOC water based products, where possible, to minimise the odours and effect upon the environment
  • Vacuum the floor and tidy up upon completion

Exterior Work
  • Clean all surfaces. This is usually a pre paint chemical clean/water blast to remove moss, mould and other contaminants
  • Use vacuum attachment when power sanding,where possible, to minimise dust released to the environment
  • Recommend and use acrylic paint on exterior windows for a much longer lasting finish in this labour intensive area
  • Only add thinner to coatings to aid application in warm conditions, so as to achieve the paint company recommended spreading rates. Good paint film build is critical to the life span of the coating. This is essential with the harsh New Zealand UV rays, and Auckland's predominantly marine environment.
