Concrete Painting IN Perth
Why Do You Need to Paint Your Concrete in Perth?
Concrete looks great when it is new but over time, it can be damaged by the weather. Concrete cracks, stains and erodes over time. This can cause unsightly discolouration on your driveway or walkway.
The solution? Concrete painting.
Painting it can make it look brand new again. Painting concrete also helps resist degradation from UV rays, rainwater runoff, and other environmental factors that can cause small cracks in the surface of your driveway or walkway. The end result? A beautiful fresh coat of colour!
How A1 Driveway Coatings Paints Your Concrete
The first step is to prepare the surface by removing any loose material.
Next, the area is cleaned thoroughly and a primer coat is applied. This will protect the concrete from getting damaged during painting work as well as provide a smooth surface for your paint job.
Once this has been done, we can spray on our colours or powder coatings depending on what type of finish you want for your driveway coating such as gloss or matte finish.
Once all these steps have been completed successfully, then it’s time to apply our top layer which consists of 2-3 coats depending on how thickly applied they need to be, not just to look good, but also to last longer than regular paints without needing a regular touch up.
Before and After Concrete Painting
The cost of painting your concrete is dependent on the size of the area, the type of paint you want to use, and how many coats you require. The number of coats you require will depend on the condition your concrete is in and how much maintenance it requires. For example, if it’s new, freshly laid, and has no cracks or chips then one coat may be all that’s needed for a long-lasting finish. If you have existing damage then additional coats are recommended and this can bump up the cost.
Depending on how big of an area you’re going to paint, it can start at around $300 and can go up as much as $1000.
The longevity of your coating depends on several factors including how well you look after it.
The general rule of thumb for most projects is that one coat will last up to 10 years if properly maintained and cared for.
If you have any concerns about the longevity of your paint job or need more than one coat applied then we recommend speaking with us first so we can advise on how best to proceed with your project.
Painting concrete is a very popular DIY project. You can paint your concrete driveway, walkway, or patio yourself with little to no help from an expert. However, it’s important to note that painting concrete isn’t just about the paint itself. If you’re painting a large area of concrete, you’ll need to make sure that the surface is free from debris and other debris that may cause damage to your paint job.
If you’re unsure if your concrete is ready for painting, don’t hesitate to contact a professional who can give you the advice you need to decide whether or not painting will be right for you.
