Brighten Your Parkade
Parkades are generally painted white with one or two coats of paint applied to ceilings and walls. Previously painted areas will require one coat while bare areas will require two. The major benefit from the white paint is the ability to increase light reflection which can decrease lighting costs and provides a safer environment within the parkade.
Sprinklers and Pipes
In many parkades, sprinklers and other pipes are prone to corrosion and these must be maintained in order to avoid expensive repairs and replacement. Well maintained surfaces will also provide a better appearance for potential clients and tenants.
Cleaning and Preparing Parkades for Painting
Parkades are generally areas that require extensive cleaning prior to painting. Cleaners and degreasers are applied during the power washing phase for these areas. Proper drainage should not be an issue for most parkades, however it is always good to verify that the drains are functioning as intended, as there is a significant amount of water used in the power washing process.
Organizing Parkade Painting
Parkades are rarely shut down during the week. We will organize your parkade project to minimize any disruption to business, while maintaining efficiency to provide the best value for the project.
The selection of colours is made easy with Elite Trade Painting. We provide colour charts and samples as well as guide you in the use of our suppliers’ online tools.
Any parkade we paint is rarely inoperative, meaning a coordinated plan with our clients to get the work accomplished while maintaining parking availability. We do this through scheduling the time of day and blocking off sections and traffic redirection. Our team will create a plan for the painting of your parkade that minimises disruption and maximises efficiency.
The first step in getting ready for the painting of a parkade by the client is to notify the users of the facility. Once a client creates a plan with us, they should post notifications and send those out to users, letting them know when the project is occurring. Traffic control will be established as work progresses. Clients will ensure that any items in the parkade blocking access will be moved prior to painting.
The most common colour for parkades is white, and the paint for ceilings and walls is typically an exterior flat latex paint. Many parkades will also add an accent colour. These paints are well priced and suitable for indoor and exposed parkades. They are self-priming and have excellent coverage. Our estimators will provide recommendations for the most cost-effective product for the painting of your parkade.
Trim needs a durable coating that provides easy cleaning and protection from heavy usage. The number one choice for trim is a white semi-gloss acrylic, while a white satin acrylic is the second most common choice.
A solvent-based two-part epoxy is the best product for parkades. Floor enamel is a cheaper option; however, the durability and longevity of this product are not appropriate for most parkade floors.
