4 Reasons You Should Use Eco-Friendly Paints

Thu, 21 Nov 2013 05:29:00 +0000

In modern times we’ve come to realise the importance of looking after the environment as much as we can. The sad truth is that the environment is not invincible, and the way we live and the things we do can influence its wellbeing and, by extension, our own. With people becoming more weary of the environment and how we are effecting it, people are turning to eco friendly products as much as they can. Certain types of paint can contain all kinds of different chemicals and can actually be very harmful to the environment and to ourselves. If you are painting at home, we would recommend that you choose an eco friendly paint for the following reasonsWater basedBeing water based, paint of this kind is easier to break down than alternative products. With the majority of its ingredients being biodegradable, the paint is going to do significantly less damage to the environment down the track. Obviously, this is the defining feature of natural paint, but some people don’t realise the other advantages associated with it. More efficient Initially, these kinds of paints were not necessarily very practical, and chemical alternatives were seen to be the way to go if you wanted the best paint job you could possibly get. Ultimately, you were paying for the eco friendly nature of these paints, rather than the quality of them. However, recent technological advancements mean that they are actually more efficient to use – they require less coats and provide more coverage than their chemical counterparts. In short, they are arguably preferable from the perspective of quality. Eco friendly productionAs well as the paint itself being better for the environment, the way that it is manufactured is too. Chemical based paint omits harmful fumes into the air in their production, and the level of toxic waste that is produced as a result is relatively high. There are far fewer byproducts produced in the manufacturing of water based paints, making them much more Not toxicLast and possibly most importantly, natural paints do not contain the same toxic chemicals as other products, which means that have much less of an adverse affect on people’s health. Traditionally, it has been seen to be dangerous to inhale paint fumes excessively, however because water based paints are free of benzene, naphthalene and other harmful chemicals, they do not have the same effect and are completely safe.[...]



Is Your Home Due For a Repaint?

Tue, 01 Oct 2013 06:02:00 +0000

When your house starts to look a bit tatty and tired, it might be high time for a repaint. The exterior of your home is a defining feature that always needs careful maintenance, and a neglected house can be spotted a mile away. But what are the tell-tale signs that it’s time for a repaint?Paint and SurfaceWhen you first inspect your property, keep an eye out for any paint deterioration and weathered exterior walls. It is necessary to take into account the surface and the materials used in construction. Whether it is wood, stone, brick or modern cladding, paints effect different types of surfaces in different ways.Softer materials such as wood or soft stone cladding can age the painted surface significantly. Weathering significantly deteriorates these surfaces, so if your property is constructed using any type of wood, it would be best to inspect these areas first, before continuing your inspection on all other surfaces.                                                                                      Water DamageWhen it comes to paint deterioration, there are several types to look out for. Water damage is a common sight, especially on soft surfaces and around drainage outlets and pipes. This kind of damage on its own is somewhat to be expected, especially in areas of high rainfall. These areas can be spruced up in no time at all, and only require a specialist primer paint to protect the surface underneath before repainting over the surface. Other DamageOther types of damaged paint to be found is from mould, fungus and other external effects that have seeped into the structure, and may require a specialist contractor to seek out the initial problem, apply the right types of sealant paint, as well as protective covering paint, such as a latex-based paint before reapplying the top coat and bringing the damaged places back to its former glory.Sunlight can also cause severe blistering and chipping of paint, which can be annoying as many houses have shaded areas by trees or other shrubbery, meaning the chipping and blistering effects sometimes only occur on the sun-facing walls. In these instances, you can apply thicker layers of undercoats, and protective latex-based paints to make sure that the chipping are reduced in the future and that the underlying materials are protected from sun, as well as the paint.So when it comes to house painting, the signs are there to be found, and if you take the time to carry out a lengthy inspection to find out the problematic areas around your property, you can be ready to call in the paint professionals who have honed their expertise in house painting to protect your home from the elements, come rain or shine, your property will be brought back to its former glory, and ready to stand the test of time for the years to come.[...]



Painting a Room in 4 Simple Steps

Fri, 30 Aug 2013 09:25:00 +0000

Specialising in interior and exterior house painting, our team knows all the tricks of the trade to ensure a perfect finish that lasts. You’re obviously going to get the best work if you hire the services of a Sydney painter. But if you have the time and you’re opting to complete the work yourself, there are a few steps you should keep in mind to make sure you get the job done as best you can.1. PreparationThe importance of cleaning the ceiling and the walls of the room is something that cannot be understated. We recommend a thorough clean as this can actually be the difference between a satisfactory paint job and a great one. Sponge down the walls and ceiling with water and detergent to remove dust and dirt that has built up. Clean up the residue, put down the sheets and your ready to begin! 2. Painting the TrimIn most cases, we suggest painting the trim before you get onto the ceiling and walls, simply because it’s much easier to tape off the trim than the walls. You want to use a two-inch brush to get a smooth finish on the molding, door and window frames, but don’t worry too much if you get paint on the walls for now. Afterwards, you’ll need to wait until the next day before the paint is dry, at which point you can tape it off and move onto the ceiling.3. Rolling the CeilingAs long as you painting the ceiling before you get to the walls, you’ll need to cut-in the perimeter of the ceiling with a paintbrush. A 3.5 inch cut-in is ideal. With the roller, paint in ‘W’ shapes applying the paint evenly and use roller strokes if excess paint is applied. Start in the corner and paint across the width of the ceiling.4. Painting the WallsOnce the ceiling has dried, it’s time to get busy on the walls. If it’s a bedroom or living room, its best to go with low-sheen or flat acrylic paints for the best finish. Start at the edges with a brush, then grab a roller and paint in ‘M’ shapes about a metre below the ceiling applying even strokes. Then move down a metre below that for the next area and so in that fashion.[...]



Healthy paint choices for commercial fit-outs

Wed, 24 Jul 2013 02:58:00 +0000

There are different reasons for an office fit out – upsizing, downsizing, maximising office space, moving, or just a simple makeover to give your premises a “fresher, cleaner, newer” feel.However, downtime during a renovation can be costly to businesses and eat into budgets. Healthy paint choice for office interiors Businesses could benefit from worker productivity by selecting low odor, low fume, low VOC or VOC free paints on their next refurbishment project.How are low VOC and VOC free paints different from traditional paints? VOCs are the chemical vapors paint releases at room temperature. Using low VOC paints enables workers to occupy the newly painted room or premises sooner due to lower odors. Traditional paint continue to release VOC fumes as they cure, therefore by choosing more sustainable products, such as natural paints or low-VOC paints it reduces the downtime workers experience whilst their office needs time to air. What benefits can businesses gain from using Low VOC or VOC free paint on their interior offices? Evidence from a recent study by Bond University’s Institute of Sustainable Development and Architecture, reveals a 90% decrease in employee ill-health, such as asthma.A sustainable option offers long-term operational savings and evidence shows working in a sustainable workplace can improve employee well-being and productivity.Premier Painting Company can assist with delivering a professional finish to your office fit-out on time and on budget.[...]



Beware Danger Lurking!

Mon, 03 Jun 2013 08:41:00 +0000

Does your property have lead based paint?


(image) Homes built pre 1970 are said to have used lead-based paints. These paints were used both inside and outside buildings.


Lead is extremely hazardous. It is a cumulative poison and even small levels in the body can have severe effects on you, and those around you.

If your home is built pre-1970 and the paint is damaged or disturbed - or likely to go that way - then your best course of action is to have it professionally removed. 

Lead particles are released when old lead paint flakes & peels, and collects as dust in ceiling, wall and floor voids. Should this paint be removed from the surface it can create lead dust making it airborne and enabling inhalation and absorbed into the blood stream. If dust is generated it MUST be contained and the disposal of contaminated waste must be carried out with all care.

Do’s and Don’ts

     -  DO use a professional to test for lead-based paint

     -  DO cover the paint, or remove by wet scraping, wet sanding, chemical stripping, or heat processes

     -  DO use protective clothing (coveralls, booties, hat, gloves) and a respirator (meeting the requirements of Australian Standard 1716)

     -  DO clean up thoroughly

     -  DO Properly contain and dispose of waste

     -  DON’T dry sand or dry scrape or use an ordinary power sander

     -  DON’T sandblast

     -  DON’T work outside on a wet or windy day

     -  DON’T use an open flame torch or high temperature heat gun

     -  DON’T eat, smoke or drink in the work area or with contaminated hands

     -  DON’T allow children, pregnant or nursing women in a house or area where lead-based paint is being disturbed.

Unsure if you are working with lead? Contact Premier Painting Company to perform a certified Lead Paint Test on your property to ensure that you are not dealing with this dangerous substance. 

Premier Painting Company offer specialist-painting services to the Historic Houses Trust. These buildings require a unique understanding of lead management and Premier Painting Company are accredited to manage the removal asbestos which is critical in provide an end to end painting solution to these clients.

Useful Painting and Decorating Tips for Homeowners

Mon, 25 Mar 2013 05:59:00 +0000

When it comes to home improvements, doing it yourself can save you thousands of dollars. That is why many homeowners attempt painting and decorating themselves rather than using professionals. However, painting and decorating your room or the whole house is never an easy task. It can take a lot of time and patience, not to mention the skill and creativity required. This is why most house owners opt to have their painting and decorating assignments completed by trade professionals. Here are 5 helpful tips to get you started on your DIY painting and decorating project.Step 1 – Decide on a visionFor the perfect finish, you should first take the time to select the appropriate colour and theme that compliments the room. There are literally thousands of colour varieties available and some companies can even help you choose and put together your own colour from scratch. Cheap isn’t always better. It’s not necessarily a good idea to opt for cheap solutions over more expensive ones, as you may find yourself having to redo the job in a year or two’s time. Look for quality and value in a product.  Step 2 - PrimerBefore you begin painting, you should add a coat of primer on the surface. Primer blocks stains and resinous knots from bleeding through and improves adhesion of paint leading to fewer blisters, effectively extending the life of the paint. It also provides one-coat coverage for the paint topcoat. When using the primer you should tint it to the finished colour by mixing a small amount of topcoat paint in it. This will ensure that the finish looks professional.To save money choose the one colour top coat paint for all your internal doors and skirting. This way you only need to buy one tin rather than dozens. Don’t forget to use dustsheets, move furniture and make sure that you carefully tape newspaper or sheets over carpets to avoid paint spills.Step 3 - Equipment Painting your house can be tiresome work. Research what materials you’re working with and buy the correct hardware, otherwise you’re going to end up with a botched job that could be very expensive to fix.Using a telescoping extension pole for your paint roller can not only save you time, but it will also lessen your chances of getting back pain. Extension poles that extend from about 18 inches to 10 feet are most suitable, and make sure they’re durable and are made to last. You should also use a paint grid, which is a rectangular, rigid metal screen that hooks onto the rim of the bucket to reduce excess paint and get ensure consistency.Save money and wait for the sales. Hardware stores hold regular sales, so if you can hold off until discount day then you’ll be able to save even more money on the cost of materialsStep 4 - DecorationOnce the painting is complete, decorating is the next logical step. Selecting a decorating theme,which complements the room’s existing items can make or break a room. Purchasing new furniture can be expensive. Rather try changing your accessories such as cushions, lamps, light fixtures, vases or a new piece of artwork or large-scale photograph to add texture, pattern and colour to complete the space.Always check the placement of wiring and pipes behind walls before you start drilling holes! Step 5 – If in doubt…Call in the professionalsTo produce a quality-painting job, many skills and lots of care are needed. If you are confused about the painting and decorating work or you feel as if you simply don’t have the time, play it safe and hire an experienced professional to complete the work.   [...]



Finding Great Strata Painters in Sydney

Tue, 19 Feb 2013 11:14:00 +0000

Hiring professional, experienced strata painters is different from hiring painters for a regular domestic or commercial job. Painting a strata building is a large job that requires experience in painting strata in particular. Strata Painters must demonstrate to the Owners’ Corporation they can manage and deliver on a large job with minimal supervision, and provide a sleek, uniform paint job. This article will provide insight on how to find professional strata painters in Sydney, allowing you to confidently improve your strata title property without being hampered by fear. When deciding to hire painters for your Sydney strata title property, there are three major areas of concern: (1) competence, (2) colour, and (3) environmental concerns.Hiring Great Strata PaintersWhile many strata painters will claim to be experienced, professional and credible painters should provide a gallery or portfolio of their recent projects. Ideally, this portfolio will include both residential and commercial work so that you can evaluate whether or not their skills match your particular project. The benefit of hiring a company as opposed to a sole trader, is companies are required to abide by financial and
legal obligations governed by ASIC. Therefore, they are accountable for their workmanship and business performance. A reputable painting company will have an on-site project manager which means quality will be supervised and controlled from beginning to end, and is not up to you to monitor. You should also check for qualifications such as membership in Master Painter’s Australia, an association that provides training and licenses to its qualified members, membership in the Strata Community Australia which is the peak association supporting the strata sector, representing over 2,500 member companies and individuals. Membership in these kinds of organizations helps ensure that strata painters are up to date on the latest techniques and technologies in the field. This knowledge will help ensure that the paint job is high-quality and long lasting.  In strata painting, these credentials are particularly important because they suggest that the company can help you avoid legal entanglements by keeping everything up to code. Check for references and testimonials to ensure that the company works as well as they claim. Finally check if the painting company is insured!Third party services such as Trades Monitors can verify contractors’ compliance with licences, insurance, registrations and safety cover. The NSW Department of Fair trading can provide advice on compulsory licencing and registrations for industry specific trades.ColourWith such a vast choice of paint colours, textures and finishes in today’s market, the added service of a colour consultant is crucial in a strata title property. Colour can appear to change in larger areas and under different light. Colour consultants can offer their experience and expertise when considering the most suitable paint colour, preparation and application under the existing lighting in the common areas. Consultants also offer value by selecting themost suitable and durable paints for trims and walls, and the type of mood that you want to evoke in the lobby and or common areas. For example, corporate offices want to convey attention-to-detail, stability, and trustworthiness. An expert Strata painting company will take that into account by choosing appropriate, long-lasting paint that will not change colour as it fades.Colour consultants understand the importance of sealing porous walls before applying a top-coat. Neglecting this step can result in poor sheen and colour uniformity, which in turn would require the job to be redone.Environmental ConcernsThere are several varieties of environmental concerns involved in painting a strata title property. The one that may be of most conce[...]

Sun, 19 Aug 2012 22:52:00 +0000

  1. Ensure your painter has an environmental awareness and procedure plan. Low VOC paint is one step towards better indoor air quality and an easy way to lessen your impact on the environment. Other important areas are the responsible disposal of all paint and dirty water through the use of an Enviro Wash system.
  2. Research or use a colour consultant to advise on which low VOC paint is the most durable and suitable to your location. There is little value selecting the lowest VOC paint if in 2 years time you will need to re-paint the property. Ensure you obtain a range of VOC free primer, sealants and paint options.
  3. Use certified painters in Sustainable Painting Practices who are accredited EnviroPainter® and abide by Green Building Council guidelines.
  4. Ask your painter if they offer CO2 monitoring service post VOC free re-paint within the first six to twelve months of buildings construction and fit-out or have a recent case study you can read.

Healthy paint choice for office interiors

Mon, 06 Aug 2012 09:11:00 +0000

Downtime during a renovation can be costly to businesses. Relocation of offices, setting up hot desks and a lag in productivity all compound daily and eat into budgets. Businesses could benefit from worker productivity by selecting low odor, low fume, low VOC or VOC free paints on their next refurbishment project.How are low VOC and VOC free paints different from traditional paints? VOCs are the chemical vapors paint releases at room temperature. Using low VOC paints enables workers to occupy the newly painted room or premises sooner due to lower odors. Traditional paint continues to release VOC fumes as they cure. What benefits can businesses gain from using Low VOC or VOC free paint on their interior offices? Selecting more sustainable products, such as natural paints or low-VOC paints reduces the downtime workers experience whilst their office needs time to air.Evidence from a recent study by Bond University’s Institute of Sustainable Development and Architecture, reveals a 90% decrease in employee ill-health, such as asthma (Bond University, 2011). Sensis reported a study based on the refurbishment of 500 Collins Street in Melbourne found a 39% fall in employee sick days, with improved concentration and task productivity (Sensis, 2012).While a sustainable option can cost more to refurbish or construct, it offers long-term operational savings and evidence shows working in a sustainable workplaces can improve employee well-being and productivity, and can potentially reduce occupational health and safety liabilities for businesses.Premier Painting Company is a Sydney based, Award winning painting and decorating specialist that clients trust to transform and maintain their property, cost effectively, securely and on time.
