Linda Pickett wanted to lift her elderly parent’s spirits with a newly painted monolithic home.
A Tired Home
This monolithic, texture clad home had several cracks through the plaster – which is typical for monolithic homes after a few years. The timber garage door, front door and pergolas were all looking worse for wear. Linda also wanted a new colour to brighten the outside.
Finding a Painter, You Can Trust
Linda says, “I tried looking online but couldn’t find anyone I liked. In one instance, I had someone come to the house for a quote but they were hard to communicate with so I didn’t go ahead. Then I remembered, our neighbour having their house painted last summer. Now it looks amazing and I was impressed with how quickly the job was completed. My neighbour then put me in contact with Painters Inc.”
A Scientific Approach
We began by washing down their house to get rid of any mould and mildew. Then we sanded all the gutters and overhanging eves where necessary. For the aging plaster, we used Resene X-200 to fill in the cracks. This paint also provides a weathertight membrane meaning it will protect their home from water ingress while allowing moisture to evaporate from inside the house.
- The gutters were painted with Resene Summit Roof – Ironsand.
- The eves were painted in Lumbersider – Eighth Truffle.
- The main membrane coating was painted in Double Truffle.
- The pergola was painted in Resene Lumbersider.
- The garage door and front door were coated in CD50 – supplied by the client.
- The textured cladding was painted with two coats of Resene X-200 Weathertight Membrane.
Thoughtfulness and Caring
As Linda’s parents were home during the day we wanted as little disruption to their daily lives as possible. We understand that having someone paint your home can be an imposition on your privacy, so we worked out a schedule to suit them and made sure everything ran according to plan. Linda’s parents also have a beautiful garden which we protected from our own team and our friends at Scafworx Ltd.
In Linda’s Own Words
“Even on wet days the team came and did what they could, just to keep the job moving ahead and on schedule for my parents. If the weather was really bad, then they just made up for it on the better days. They always kept us in the loop which we really appreciated so we were never left wondering what was happening.
They came out like a little dream team. They were great with my elderly parents and went the extra mile. There were also lots of little jobs that weren’t included in the quote but they were really flexible. We are all so pleased with it! I can’t speak highly enough of them really. Painter’s Inc are really nice people and we have already told lots of our friends about them.”
