Client: Home Owner Location: Moorooka, Brisbane Type of Painting: External Painting
We were assigned to paint this beautiful old house externally with spray painting tools and techniques.
Painting a house with a spray gun allows the surface to be very flat leaving the house walls free from brush strokes.
In terms of time savings, it takes the same time compared to the more conventional way with a brush.
As for the cost, it is similar apart from that we need to use more paint compared to when painting with a brush.
Wen using a spray paint gun, we need to have a compressor with enough power to pump the paint through a tube sometime as far as 25-30m. It is also important to apply the right technique when using the gun with the paint to achieve the perfect result.
This beautiful house As for this house, client decided to get rid of the yellow cream color and instead have it painted with grey light quality paint from our preferred supplier.
We always encourage you to ask for our past clients if you feel you need to check the quality of our previous paint jobs.
Preparation and cleaning has always been a major part in our job and with a spray paint technique, and even more important as we are dealing with natural forces such as air and wind affecting how the paint applies to the surface.
Using the gun when painting sounds easy but it requires a lot of skills just as for the traditional painting. Having to consider wind and surroundings with out-most carefulness is of major importance.
Many years of practicing have tough us the right skills to apply not to much and not too little paint. If we apply to much, we will get runs, if we apply too little, the previous coat will shine through.
