More than just paint

Central Queensland News - - HOME IMPROVEMENT / ADVERTISEMENT FEATURE -

THE name Paint Place gen­er­ally makes peo­ple think of ex­actly that: a place you can go to buy paint.

But did you know your lo­cal Emer­ald Paint Place branch can help you out with so much more than just paint?

Brett Mor­ri­son, gen­eral man­ager for Paint Place CQ, said the Emer­ald branch catered for all ar­eas of a house and could even help re­ju­ve­nate tired, old floor­ing.

“We sup­ply all types of floor fin­ishes,” he said.

“In your big work­shop, shed, fac­tory type sit­u­a­tions, you’ve got your epoxy floor­ing, which is very re­sis­tant and easy to clean.

“You can wipe off oil and that sort of stuff, and you don’t get any hot tyre pick-up from things parked on it.

“Then we’ve got the more dec­o­ra­tive type floor­ing.

“The dec­o­ra­tive stuff is more about your seam­less floor­ing.”

Mr Mor­ri­son said dec­o­ra­tive floor­ing was use­ful for cov­er­ing con­crete cracks and other age-re­lated dam­age.

“Then you can go to your con­crete stain type fin­ishes, which can freshen up your drive­ways,” he said.

“Where your drive­ways have got that old sten­cil con­crete type stuff that’s gone a bit funny and faded out, we’ve ac­tu­ally got a prod­uct called Pave Coat which al­lows you to re-stain and re­colour your drive­ways.”

Mr Mor­ri­son said this method was pop­u­lar with own­ers of older houses in Emer­ald.

“You know, a lot of our houses that are 20 years old, 10 years old, have got that sort of stuff that’s bro­ken down and re­ally, you can’t save it any­more with the clear (coat),” he said.

“You’ve got to colour it, so you can stain it, which is essen­tially like a con­crete stain fin­ish which is very durable and easy to use and in­ex­pen­sive.”
