Often people wait until a building looks worn and dated with cracked and peeling paintwork before any painting work is carried out, rather than trying to maintain it so it consistently looks good.
It may seem like a cheaper strategy to leave painting work as long as possible. However, it actually could cost more to remedy the appearance of a building after it starts to deteriorate as it’s likely to need extensive preparation and replacement of costly substrates prior to repainting.
- Remedial repairs – such as Render Issues, Structural Issues and Water issues
- Common Area maintenance – Sydney Remedial, Access and Painting (SRAP) can inspect annually to see if common areas such as Entry foyers, stairwells, corridors may require a freshen up. This helps and maintains the paint work to look fresh and can save money long term.
- Ongoing maintenance painting ensures a building always looks well-presented and modern, but it can also reduce future replacement costs. An example of this is maintaining the paint finish on windows as part of a long-term maintenance painting programme. This extends the life span of the windows and eliminates the cost associated with ongoing replacement.
The benefits of ongoing maintenance based on appearance are demonstrated in the graph below. Across a 6-year period with preventative maintenance painting the appearance of a building stays relatively the same, whereas in relation to ad hoc reactive painting the appearance of a building steadily declines.
Generally, a painting maintenance program is constructed over a set period of time Usually it consists of a full repaint of all facilities followed by annual maintenance painting services. Externally this would include cleaning soiled and weather affected painted surfaces followed by painting of any painted surfaces that have been damaged by normal wear and tear.
In most cases the cleaning component will include detergent pressure washing of painted surfaces to remove dirt and grime. External paint cleaning is a critical part of the process and a simple analogy to this is cleaning our cars regularly to protect paint work from oxidation caused by the sun’s UV rays. This is no different to cleaning painted surfaces on buildings as these surfaces are exposed to the same harsh environmental conditions.
