“I am a professional painter and painting contractor in Gauteng.”
Interior and exterior coating to walls, floors, doors and more is where I can help.
Paint in the building trade is ubiquitous. We use it all the time, for all kinds of reasons.
However, as common as painting is – it’s by no means throw away task.
In my experience, if done correctly, a solid paint job can serve to:
- protect your house against moisture damage, adding durability
- add to the value proposition of your home to a new buyer
- personalise your work or living space
Interior house painting painting
In the interior trade, painting up is by far the quickest and easiest way of transforming a room or indoor living space.
The scope could either be whole house, or an isolated freshen up of a single room.
But paint can have a most remarkable effect on changing the ‘feel’ of your home.
*A little known fact as well is that you can actually use paint to change the size and dimension of your room.
(It’s a bit of an optical illusion, but it works in how we might perceive to use the room.)
Common internal residential paint jobs are:
- living room
- deck staining
And for a paint job to look 1st class, I pay particular attention to detail on all prepping before starting.
- texture scraping
- wallpaper removal
- wood repair
- stain removal
- filling in with putty
- levelling the surface
- priming etc.
Also, I take particular care to navigate around lighting fixtures and fittings, decorative hardware, rails, cornice features, window frames, doors, skirting boards etc.
Paint chemistry and house protection in Gauteng
Interior and exterior paint chemistry is a massive professional tip.
Just as a word of advice, before you commission any house painter (or take on a DIY painting project yourself) – make sure you understand paint chemistry…
…the value of your house depends on it.
Paint is composed of various components or ingredients.
And one of the most critical for the Gauteng climate is paint resin.
Resin is the binding agent that makes the paint stick to the surface.
It also affects the paints overall ability to withstand heat and moisture exposure.
And all because its a naturally sticky substance, gummy in consistency.
With the right resin, your external paint will avoid peeling, chipping and fading in the sun.
Let me know what you have in mind for your house painting project and ask away, I’d like to hear from you.
