October Tradie Tour - Painting 

With internal, external and surface preparation consistently appearing in the QBCC’s list of top ten defects, painting was the obvious choice to be addressed in the most recent round of Tradie Tour.

The guest speaker was industry expert and Master Painters Association of Queensland (MPAQ) CEO and president Chris Munday. Chris has an established and respected presence within the industry and regularly meets with a wide range of stakeholders, which provides him with a grass roots awareness of emerging industry trends and pain points.  

Chris shared valuable painting tips and covered a number of important subjects including:

  • What is a painting defect?
  • Testing and acceptance of existing painted substrates
  • Paint preparation and application
  • Performance and expectations of different types of paint
  • Roof restoration
  • Rendered and applied finishes
