In this comprehensive guide, we'll explore the essential aspects of strata painting and how our expertise can help you achieve stunning results.
A fresh coat of paint can transform a dull, outdated building into an attractive, modern living space.
Regular painting is a crucial part of property maintenance, helping to protect surfaces and address any wear or damage.
High-quality paint and professional application provide additional waterproofing and protection against the elements.
A well-maintained and visually appealing building is more likely to attract tenants and buyers, ultimately boosting property values and rental returns.
Before painting common property areas, you must seek approval from the strata committee and owners corporation at a committee meeting. Be sure to adhere to any specific by-laws and regulations for your strata scheme.
The owners corporation is responsible for organizing painting work, but this task can be delegated to the strata committee or strata manager. They will find a painter, schedule the work, and coordinate the project.
Major paint jobs should be funded through the strata capital works fund, while smaller touch-ups can be paid via the administrative fund. If necessary, costs can be divided evenly among lot owners.
Get quotes from at least two or three painters or painting companies. Your strata manager can help recommend painters if needed.
Look for painters with good communication skills, positive reviews from previous clients, and experience in the strata industry.
Check for proper accreditations, licenses, insurance, and ABN. Consider affiliations with industry associations such as SCA NSW and Master Painters NSW.
Review quotes and their inclusions. Keep in mind that lower-priced quotes may use inferior materials and yield poorer results.
Notify residents in advance of painting work by posting notices on communal boards and distributing them through letterboxes.
Arrange for painting to take place over multiple days, focusing on different areas of the building and avoiding peak hours to minimize disruption.
