FAQ

about painters works, practices, prices, products, techniques, workmanship, warranty, and more in Auckland.

how much is a reasonable budget for a house exterior painting in Auckland?
1. In our painting work gallery, the prices are marked aside. The size of the house, the conditions, location, and height are all factors to consider.
2. A reasonable budget for a house exterior painting job can be anywhere from $4,000 to $12,000, depending on the complexity of each case.
3. The quality of the painting work should be the priority, Professional and experienced painters who use the right materials and follow proper techniques may charge more but can provide better results that last longer, saving you money in the long run.
4. A detailed quote with progress and techniques is suggested for comparison.
 
Can I just paint over old paint?
Yes, but sanding is a must. Our painting reparation options are as follows:
a. old paint stripping-sanding-washing-priming-painting (10%)
b. sanding-washing-partial priming-painting (90%)
c. washing-painting (plaster exterior only)
d. painting directly (never)
 
How can you tell if a paint job is bad?
Badly done are:
Visible stains and flaws throughout the paint; Uneven and inconsistent colors – a common issue when only one coat of paint is used; Blotches and streaks caused by applying paint on a dirty or wet wall.
 
How can I tell if it’s fully two coats?
A. by the amount of paint used. Dulux Paint Calculator is a good reference tool. Approximately 1 liter covers16m2(assume it’s “one coat”, then 1L covers 8m2 as two coats.)
B. we leave samples of 1. not painted, 2. one coat, 3. two coats; You can compare them then to be confident that two coats are fully applied.
 
What are the most common painting work defects that homeowners may encounter in Auckland?
Peeling and Blistering: caused by poor surface preparation; good sanding will fix it.
Cracking and Flaking: This can happen when the paint is applied too thickly or when the surface beneath the paint expands or contracts due to temperature changes; Ultimate solution is old paint stripping.
Poor Adhesion: This can occur when the paint is applied to a dirty, greasy, or poorly prepared surface, causing it to peel or flake off; Soft washing after heavy sanding will fix this problem.
 
How to judge if my house exterior needs re-painting?
Fading and Chalking: Over time, exposure to UV rays and weather elements can cause paint to fade and chalk, leading to a dull appearance; Average time is about 12-15 years, this is a good judgment of re-painting. It is not exactly a defect.
Mildew and Mold Growth: Moisture buildup can cause mildew and mold growth, which can damage the paint and affect indoor air quality.
 
What are Zeolis Painters’ payment terms?
We are flexible in terms of payment. You can pay 1/3 when we start the preparation work, and once you see the progress you are going to have more confidence in our profession. It’s a good time for us to take the first 1/3; All the balance could be paid upon completion of painting works to your satisfaction. 
 
How to judge if it’s one coat or two coats of paint?
Our painters’ practice is that we keep samples:
1. Original;
2. Sanded and washed;
3. Primed;
4. One coat;
5. Two coats;
Customers can compare the differences to tell if the house is painted with two coats of paint; The other judgment is from the paint’s coverage specification.
