2018 was a huge year for us when it came to massive projects all on the go at the same time. Panorama Residences at Carrara was just one of these projects.
With expansive 360 degree views to the Gold Coast City skyline and across to the Hinterland, Panorama Residences comprises of 39 x 2 storey terrace homes and 26 x single storey garden villa apartments.
This project for us consisted of both all external and all internal paint work. Total job included 2 apartment buildings and 5 town house buildings.
From time to time our staff get together for decorative workshops where they get the opportunity to learn and explore new techniques, to apply multiple products to achieve a custom new finish, the chance to play with products they may not get exposure to daily, and time to share ideas with each other.
By holding regular workshops this keeps our staff up to date with the latest decorative trends and allows them to become familiar with new products being released.
During this time we encourage everyone to mix products together to see how they blend, layer, and set using different tools to achieve different affects.
Some of the samples staff created at our last workshop.
With summer almost over now is the time to consider that necessary maintenance to bring your exterior timber back to life. Regular maintenance is important to extend the life of your existing timber, especially in the harsh climate we live in and to keep it looking fresh and new.
Timber that has been left untreated will suffer from various issues that include not only fading, but also splintering, some can even rot. Most of these issues can be solved if they are treated in time.
