But what about the paint? As a rule of thumb the cost of paint is a very small portion of the price you will pay, so we use the best! There is no point in getting the best painters in the business to put on the worst paint.
Good paint lasts longer, is easier to put on, and can often get a better finish. If a good quality paint saves us some time, in the end it will save you money. We provide premium quality paints to compliment our high standards of workmanship. This also enhances the first rate levels of service that our clients enjoy.
There are some pretty clever cookies out there, coming up with products I would have never dreamed possible. We make it part of our job to keep up to date with the latest advances in techniques and products - so that we can provide you with just what you need. Here's just a few products below.
Paint in dark colours typically fade and deteriorate quicker than lighter colours. This is because all the energy from the sun is absorbed, rather than reflected. New hi-tech paint available counteracts this by reflecting all but the visible light energy. With visible light only making up 44% of the energy in sunlight a lot more light/energy is reflected, keeping your painted surface cooler and lasting longer.
V.O.C. Volatile Organic Compounds are bad guys when it comes to paint and the environment. So what have the clever guys down at the lab done? They have mixed up new paints with low and in some case practically no VOCs. Even the tinters are now being made with low VOCs. Deco NZ is all for reduced VOC and we make it our first choice whenever practical.
If you don't have a lot of time to talk - don't get me started on religion, politics or graffiti! Nothing gets a painter more wound-up than having their beautiful work ruined by graffiti. Luckily there are some things we can do about it, mainly in the form of Anti-Graffiti paints. There are two main types, the first is putting on an ultra hard clear coating over your paintwork so that the coating can be scrubbed clean without removing your beautiful paintwork with it. The other is a sacrificial coating that comes away with the graffiti leaving your paintwork behind ready for a new layer of sacrificial coating for the next time. If you think graffiti is going to be a problem, let us know and we will help you find a solution.
Yep, they have even come up with a paint that helps you protect your home. Imagine trying to climb up a drain pipe or gutter, only to find that the silver paint is too slippery to hold on to, and not only that - but you can't get the darn stuff off for days!
How would you like an intumesent paint (heat retarding paint) which can go over an existing wall, and that gives you a 60FRR without ripping the walls apart and putting in FireGib? We can do it, and we can do it in 24 hours.
