There are a lot of variables associated with this question. It will depend on the location of property (if you live close to the beach, then the salty
air and water will necessitate more regular painting), the weather in the area where you live, and even the colour of the paint. As a general rule,
every 5 to 7 years the exterior of a property will need to be painted.
When painting your own property, the main things to consider are safety requirements. If your property was build prior to 1970, there’s a high likelihood
that it will contain lead paint and asbestos. These hazardous materials need to be removed safely and disposed of safely, by a professional. In addition,
when working at heights, you also need to be conscious of safety.
If you are unhappy with the way a paintjob has been finished, begin by raising your concerns with your contractor. Generally speaking, your painter will
be happy to oblige and rectify any issues within the scope of the project. If this does not solve the issue, then take a look at our Technical Inspection services.
When contracting a painter or decorator, you should always ask to see copies of their licence and insurance policies. In addition, you should check whether
they are a Master Painters member—if they are, you can rest assured of superior service and quality standards.
There is a whole raft of reasons why it’s always a good idea to use a Master Painter. From our strict guidelines around ethical business practices and
expectations of superior quality workmanship, through to our thorough Code of Practice, Master Painters are always the most reliable painters around.
