The Paddocks - A Gauteng Painting Contract

The Paddocks

The Paddocks is a multi-unit residential development situated in Dainfern, Johannesburg, which Thorn is currently busy redecorating in partnership with Prominent Paints. The estate is home to 384 units divided up into 32 three-storey buildings, which we are tackling over an 18-month period to meet the request of the body corporate’s funding model.

There is a significant amount of preparatory work being undertaken before each block of apartments is coated in the new colour scheme. Each block needs significant plaster repairs and is also receiving a full coat of plaster primer due to the poor quality of the original paint film. Crazed cracking is also highly prominent throughout and the specification has called for a waterproofing fibre seal to deal with this defect.

We are now 1/3 of the way through the project and the new colour scheme has given The Paddocks a significant facelift. The contrast between the light and dark tones is more noticeable and the high quality of the product will ensure the durability of the buildings.

The site is being looked after by Ndaba Masuku, who has been a Site Supervisor at Thorn Painting Solutions for the past 3 years, having painted for the company since 2007. His team is made up 10 painters and 2 plasterers and we have been very impressed with the quality of their workmanship on site to date.
