Spray Painting


Spray painting is an option for interior and exterior residential painting. It involves the application of paint via a spray gun. Compressed gas (namely air) is utilized to direct and atomise the paint particles. Airless sprayers are also available and are often more practical.

Staunch Greco Industries recommends considering interior spray painting when it comes to a new residential build. We also recommend considering exterior spray painting. It can be an effective and efficient way of painting large exterior areas.

Spray painting requires very precise preparation prior to application, which includes cleaning, filling uneven spots and cracks. Walls need to be perfectly smooth.  Extra special care must be taken to protect flooring when spray painting is conducted indoors. Painters also need to be equipped with specific work gear while undertaking spray painting. Discuss this option with your Staunch Greco project manager to see whether it’s a valid option for you.

Decking Restoration


Staunch Greco Industries also specialises in decking restoration for your residential property!

Decking restoration is all about giving the wood an extended life span. The process keeps it looking great for a much longer period.

We will discuss what your requirements are and provide you with advice about which products and finishes to use. For example: Clear finishes, transparent stain, solid stains etc

 We start with an inspection to get an understanding of the general condition of the wood. If some of the wood is damaged, it will need to be replaced.

Preparation of the wood is essential in order to get best possible results with a clear and smooth finish.

The preparation starts with cleaning. We use the following equipment: Deck cleaner solution, water pressure machine, and a broom (for clean-up). We must leave it to dry for a couple of days after the cleaning.

Good sanding means a smooth and quality finish. We make sure the surface looks good after the sanding. We remove dust and dirt from the surface and the surroundings, in order to ensure a very clear and smooth finish.

From this point, the surface is ready to receive the first coat of the product that has been selected. We ensure that we follow manufacturer installation and application requirements in order to get a top-quality finish. We can apply one or two coats of the products depending on the surface conditions or which finish you want.
