Request a Bespoke Specification Do you have a project but are a bit unsure of where to start? Or do you require a coatings specification for building regulations or contractors? Let Holman Specialist Paints create your bespoke coatings specification. Request your Bespoke Coatings Specification Today If you’d like us to put together a specification we’ll need some key information from you, to give us a good starting point. When putting together a specification, we might ask for the following: - Where are you painting? (interior/exterior/both) - What surfaces are you looking to paint? Is there a specific material types? (wood/uPCV/masonry/glass/metal/etc) Different surfaces and materials have different coatings requirements. Some surfaces require specific adhesion primers, or exact coating systems. If you’re painting wood, masonry or metal, if you can, let us know the type of material. I.E. Is your wood oak or pine, etc? Or is the metal surface galvanised steel? - Preferred finish or colour? (Matt/semi-matt/gloss/etc) Many of our products come in various sheen levels and can be tinted to any colour from any colour card. We have an unrivalled colour matching service, so we can create the perfect shade for your project. - Estimated Area Size We don’t want you to end up with far too much paint – or run out of paint half way through a job! So, the estimated size and area of your project will be useful to help us calculate the right quantity of paint that you’ll require. - Any notes on current condition of the surface? Perhaps your exterior timber has an existing coating that is flaking/peeling off? Or are there cracks in your masonry render? Let us know about these conditions as we can put together a full specification including preparation, filling and priming your surface to ensure the best and most long-lasting results. - Preferred application method (brush/spray/roller) This isn’t an exact requirement – but it helps us to understand how you’ll be applying the product and to ensure it is suitable to your needs, requirements and ability. We work with customers from all industries and experience and will make sure the coating is suitable for your requirements. When it comes to recommending a product, coatings system or specification, at Holman Specialist Paints we’re very specific to ensure we’re finding only the best solution.
