Our commercial painting and decorating projects take us far and wide across Teesside. We thought we’d use our new blog to showcase some of the recent work we have carried out across the region.
The brief for us at Billingham Rugby Club was to carry out a full redecoration of the main function room after all their new joinery work had been carried out. The paint specification was White Matt ceilings, Dulux Diamond Matt Deep Fossil walls along with Dulux Diamond Eggshell Frosted Steel woodwork.
We had five days to carry out the work Monday -Friday as there was due to be a function on the Friday evening.
The use of cutting-edge water-based paints ensured there were no fumes and drying time was kept to a minimum.
The project was finished by the Friday lunchtime. This ensured enough time was allowed to get the room ready for the function that evening.
This property was badly in need of some attention. After the preparation there wasn’t much of the original paint left on the wall. A coat of Stabilising solution was applied to produce a nice surface to apply the two top coats. Two coats of Pilolite based masonry were preferred to the cheaper water based masonry products. This is because Piloite is shower proof in 20 minutes and can be used in temperatures as low as minus 4 degrees! It sticks like glue as well!
All the doors were prepared and given a coat of undercoat and gloss in previous colours.
Due to the nature of the premises the work had to be carried out on the Sunday and the Monday when closed. This project was completed within the timeframe.
This was a very detailed project lasting approx. 6 weeks. The specification was to use the previous colour scheme utilising Johnstones Flexible undercoat and gloss system. The work was carried out to a very high standard burning off where necessary.
The biggest challenge was the original Fox Alms sign which crumbled in places after preparation. However with a mixture of expanding foam and rapid drying fillers it was brought back to life and finished off with some traditional fine painting in the sunken text.
The carpark access ramp desperately required some TLC. This work had to be carried out in the middle of the summer last year due to the car park hours of 7am -7pm. This required four evening shifts from 7pm to 9:30pm.
The project involved preparation of masonry walls using a Stabilising solution on porous surfaces and stain block on rusted stains. Pilolite based masonry was utilised due to it’s adhesion properties.
The kerbstones were marked out evenly with black and yellow sections and painted with Rust-oleum Tarmacoat which is a very fast drying multi purpose floor paint.
This was a very high-end project with lots of dry lining partitions as the open plan office was redesigned to accommodate lots of private businesses.
We used our latest spray technology to achieve a fabulous finish on the walls and our elite Satinwood for the woodwork. The wallpapering was Textura and was fabulous to work with. The most challenging aspect was the open plan stairwell where a stair tower had to be erected and dismantled to facilitate the work. The project was over a six week period working with the main contractor and other trades completing on time and on budget.
