Summer has well and truly arrived and even though we are in the midst of a very wet La Niña season, the sun is still coming out and coming out hot. We know how important it is to keep your decks, exteriors, cars and boats in tip-top shape and flake-free with the hot sun beating down on them, so make sure you read on to see how you can ensure your painted surfaces will hold up this summer.
1# Take an Inventory
Firstly, run a stocktake on all your surfaces. How is your house façade going? Does your boat need a bit of TLC? What about the deck or your outdoor setting – could they do with a re-stain? Take some time to make a checklist and see what needs to be maintained or updated, so you know exactly what needs to be done over the Christmas break.
2# Seek Expert Advice
There is nothing worse than going into a project with no real idea, so make sure you seek out the right advice. Paint Place has expert staff with experience and knowledge from automotive to wood care, marine to house paint, and can help you with your selection. To prime or not to prime? They can answer this question.
3# Choose Quality
Don’t cheap out on your product selection. If you are in a position where something you have once painted, stained or sealed needs a go-over, chances are you didn’t go with quality the first time. It’s important now more than ever to choose Australian-made paint products as they are built with our conditions in mind. You can also shop with peace of mind knowing your purchase is helping an Australian-owned business. Win-win!
