About Our Painting Services

Why should one consider painting, and what factors to consider?

A new coat of paint is one of the final stages in making a new home or renovation in Melbourne look fantastic. Paint can also completely refresh the look and feel of an existing room or home. But paint isn’t just a decorative touch, and it also provides a means to protect and maintain the quality and value of a property. There is no denying that paint is a necessity for any property, and like anything, there are levels of quality.

Choosing colours

Having some idea about colour is a necessity as the right colour choice can look sensational, but the incorrect colour choice can adversely affect the area. Things to consider are the purpose of the room. A perfect example is a nursery that would require soft, pastel colours to create a calm environment for the baby to sleep.

Bright, vibrant or dark colours may be used for an entertainment area and neutrals for a family room. There is a myriad of colour combinations for each area, so it is a great idea to create a mood board with all the colours and coverings in the room (curtains & flooring) to ensure that your colour palette is going to be a success. This is part of the preparation, and we can’t stress enough how important preparation is.

What’s involved in painting?

The general misconception is that painting is easy. To a certain extent, this may be true, and in most cases, painting is only “made easier” when the area to be painted has had very extensive and well-planned preparation.

Correct preparation can involve extensive work if an existing layer of paint needs to be removed. Depending on the surface type and the scale of paint removal required, painters may employ a variety of tools and products, including a simple scraping tool, paint-stripping chemicals, a heating gun and even an orbital power sander. An experienced painter will know which tool to use in each situation. They’ll also be aware of the risk of removing paint containing lead (lead paints were commonly used on buildings in Australia before 1971).

Preparation can also take more time if there’s a need for repairing damaged areas, protecting surrounding areas, cleaning surfaces and implementing enhanced safety procedures (which would be required for instance, if removing paints suspected of containing lead or when working on two-storey or higher buildings). The variety of different circumstances painters encounter means they need an in-depth understanding of the broad range of tools and products available to them.

Every property is different and can present unique challenges to even the most experienced professional painters.

Some of the most common DIY jobs where we are “called to the rescue” are due to incorrect preparation, cheap equipment or incorrect materials. Even if the owner may have taken a lot of time for preparation, using the incorrect brush or paint will result in a poor final finish. Let’s discuss paint first.

So how do you know if a plasterer is the right professional for you? A plasterer will be able to provide a smooth surface, whether on walls, ceilings or partitions, for either functional or decorative purposes. A plasterer will also be able to perform the following tasks:

  • Apply coats of plaster: Plastering specialists will apply plaster to interior walls and partitions, using hand tools, portable power tools or a combination of the two.
  • Create decorative textures: Plasterers can create textures and decorative patterns for an ornate finish.
  • Clean and prepare surfaces: Plastering specialists will prepare surfaces for plastering by thoroughly cleaning them and fixing any cracks or chips found. They will also create the mortar mix, ready for application.

The time is takes to plaster a room depends on what’s required, and on the size of the room. We can give you an estimated completion time when we come and look at the job and provide a quote.

Generally, it will take around 3-5 days for plastering to dry out however there are a few factors that will affect the drying time of your plaster. The thickness of the plastering will affect the time it takes for the plaster to dry out. If there are any areas that require additional work, for example, if there is a void, a large crack, or a gap which requires filling then a base coat or bonding plaster may be required before skimming. This means that certain areas may be thicker than others and therefore require more time for the plaster to thoroughly dry out. If there has been significant filling it could take as long as two weeks for the plaster to be thoroughly dry and ready for painting and decorating. Another factor that will affect the drying time for your plastering work is the room temperature and ventilation. It can be tempting to turn the heating right up to speed up the drying process but this is not recommended. Excessive heat will cause the plaster to dry too quickly which may result in cracking or hazing. The best condition for allowing your newly plastered walls/ceiling to dry is to provide some ventilation by opening a couple of windows slightly. You can put the heating on, however, we recommend you keep this at a low temperature for a number of days after the plastering is completed. This will help with the drying process whilst avoiding the plaster cracking.

The most common types of plaster are a composition of gypsum, lime or cement with water and sand. The plaster is typically manufactured as a dry powder and then worked to form a stiff paste by mixing in water before application.

Plastering is most definitely a skill, so you should understand that before you begin. Any skill can be learnt, but it's going to take you a bit of time and a bit of practise. ... With a bit of time, learning and careful work, you can totally tackle plastering through DIY! You've just got to put the effort in to learn how.
