This was yet another contract we did for B Price, this consisted of the external repainting to 14 units on a trading estate. The project ran over a 5-week period, we wished to complete sooner, but the weather was against us.
The client wanted the buildings to be freshened up and a new colour scheme to match other properties they own.
We used high pressure water cleaning to remove all loose and flaking materials, dirt, grime and chalking from the cladding. Any exposed metal surfaces which where rusting was treated by scraping, chipping, wire brushing, or mechanical means to remove all rust. All prepared metal was then coated by spray application. On this project we used a product from Tikkurila, Temadur 20 this is a 3-coat system. We cleaned down the steelwork with pressurised air. Mechanically grind and hand sand the substrate to remove any loose paint and rust before spot priming with Johnstone’s Quick Dry Metal Primer. We will then apply one oil-based undercoat and one oil based finish coat of Johnston’s ultra-gloss paint. All previously painted woodwork was scraped with a hand tool before thoroughly sanding the entire area smooth using Aluminium oxide glass paper. We then applied one full undercoat and one full finish coat.
