More than just paint
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.”
