St Macartans PS Mornington

Amongst the strength and beauty that exposed timber has brought to this contemporary school on the Mornington Peninsula, lies a very real coating challenge. Externally stained timbers do not respond well to the suns ultra violet impact and to add to the challenge the original stain finishes were discontinued from sale, requiring the sourcing of new products to match the original. Furlong Painting was chosen as partner in this challenge, putting together a long term paint maintenance proposal to address these specific needs.

As part of a staged strategy, all surfaces were addressed, with a specific allocation over a 6 year program for substrates most vulnerable to UV degradation. For surfaces with a high UV exposure, the strategy included a transition to a decorative finish to enable more effective paint maintenance.

And in the words of our client...

My experience over many years with Furlong Painting has always been a positive one. The team are always open, honest, and helpful in explaining the pros and cons of different paints, finishes and colours so that I am always able to pick the best product for the best result within my budget. I especially like the assistance received before and during the works as well as the follow up after the job has been completed. The painting team who complete the work do an excellent job with brilliant attention to detail. I have never been disappointed by the fast and efficient service provided.
