Our services

Residential painting

National Paint Contractors (NPC) specialises in all types of residential painting, both new and redecorative work.

All work is done under owner supervision, and we confirm that our staff are trustworthy and sufficiently skilled and experienced to perform all tasks handed to them.

All residential quotations include the application of colour samples and assistance in internal and external colour choices.

For larger contracts, we welcome quality assessment audits commissioned by the manufacturers directly or by independent assessors appointed by them to facilitate their guarantees. These reports are made available to our customers for their peace of mind.

Commercial painting

National Paint Contractors (NPC) specialises in decorative painting for sectional title schemes, share block companies, sports clubs and home owners associations.

We are compliant with the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993 and the regulations issued in pursuance of its objectives, giving bodies corporate and management teams the peace of mind that all work is done in a professional, safe and lawful manner.

Our workers are well versed in working in public places and perform their work with minimum inconvenience to tenants.

Roof coating

National Paint Contractors (NPC) roof coating systems include high-pressure cleaning of previously painted roof surfaces. Our roof coatings are applied with brush, roller or Graco airless spray machines, which results in a better and longer lasting bond. All work done at height is conducted in strict accordance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993, with our first emphasis on the safety of our personnel.

Building repairs

All building cracks are repaired to paint manufacturer’s specifications, as are plaster and spalling defects. We also undertake repairs and replacement of barge and fascia boards, ceilings and soffits, handrails and the like.

Damp proofing

In addition to the usual damp proofing techniques specified by our suppliers, prior to applying paint layers, we also provide specialised damp proofing to all areas showing more than 12% moisture when tested.

Whilst some of our specialised paint material (Dulux Wallguard) can tolerate moisture levels up to 25%, general painting material (Dulux Weatherguard,
Dura 100, Plascon Pem/PSB/Wall and All, Midas products, Prominent products, etc.) need to be protected from excess moisture levels of 8-12% and above. We achieve this with more aggressive methods. We undertake Tanking and Injection Damp Proofing, using specialised material form either ABE, Safeguard or Sika.

High-pressure cleaning

High-pressure cleaning of surfaces forms part of our usual painting preparation, but we are also trained and equipped to clean roofs, pre-cast walls, driveways and face-brick surfaces.

Our staff is accustomed to working in industrial environments with due regard to safety and security procedures.
