Benefits of using a local painter

When looking for a painter for your next residential, commercial or strata painting job you may be tempted to look further afield to save a little money, however, there are a number of benefits to using a local painter which far outweigh saving a little on your bottom line.

As a North Shore Painter, Summit Coatings services all areas of Greater Sydney, and have completed a number of small and large scale jobs in Sydney’s North Shore.

It makes sense to use North Shore Painters as it means you benefit from local knowledge and experience working on projects similar to your own.

 

Natural Elements

Living close to the ocean, Sydney sider’s deal with some tough natural elements, such as salt spray, wild winds and heavy rain. These natural elements can have an unforgiving impact on the life of your exterior paint job.

Our North Shore Painting Team can provide expert advice as to which products you should use to get the most out of your paint job. Whilst there are quite a range of products, one particular favourite of ours is Taubmans Endure Exterior which features a lifetime guarantee against blistering, flaking or peeling if applied correctly.

 

Access Issues

Local areas each have their own unique “lay of the land”. Areas our residential painting team North Shore work with tend to have very steep residential blocks, making exterior painting more challenging. Summit Coatings offers licensed scaffolding and the use of professional access equipment to ensure your job is completed with minimal delay.

The use of access equipment is heavily regulated due to the risks associated with using various machinery and working at heights. Summit Coatings has been recognised as a Winner of the 2014 Master Painters Association “Difficult Access” award for their work in Waitara.

 

What works and what doesn’t

As a painting contractor North Shore, Summit Coatings understands how the latest colour trends translate to your area. What might be fashionable in the Inner City might look completely out of place in your street. It’s important you have the right advice from North Shore Painters so you’re happy with your decisions today and in to the future.

Our biggest tip to North Shore residents is to avoid strikingly bright colours and to embrace the natural elements, which are so prominent in Sydney’s North Shore. Natural greens, taupe’s and soft blues tend to do well. Alternatively, if you have a heritage style home, consider what might have been the original vision for the house (pale hues are very common).

 

If you are looking to have your North Shore Home painted by a North Shore Painting Contractor, it’s time to contact Summit Coatings today. Visit our website for more information or call 02 9973 3131 for an obligation free quotation.
