At Carparkking we primarily use and recommend Dulux Roadmaster A1 Chlorinated Rubber Paint due to its longevity, value for money, and durability.
Other companies use water-based products which are cheaper again however the paint is hard and brittle and easily breaks down under constant vehicular traffic much quicker than the Chlorinated Rubber paints. To compete with the market we price Chlorinated Rubber at what other companies using water-based would be charged at as although our margin is reduced our customer satisfaction is increased.
Yes there is, At Carparkking we are also qualified Cold Applied Plastic Applicators (CAPS).
CAPS is a long-life heavy-duty product that will generally outlast Chlorinated Rubber by up to five times the life. However, CAPS is approximately three times the price but should see a return on investment if you are currently regularly repainting your facility. Often due to how expensive CAPS is our customers may choose to get their Arrows, Pedestrian Crossings, and Stop lines which are exposed to the most traffic done in CAPS, and then get all the other line marking like parking bay lines done in Chlorinated Rubber.
Yes .. We offer free quoting to all our clients, from smaller residential and commercial jobs, right up to the largest multi-story Carparks, and warehouse line marking projects our quotes will always remain free.
Yes, however this would only be recommended in warehouse settings with heavy forklift traffic or over arrows and other high traffic markings in a carpark.
Yes, We have full public liability insurance and workers comp.
Yes, At Carparkking we are the only line marking company that has an in-house stencil cutting machine in Australia.
We can custom cut any stencils you require and due to it being completely in-house we have the flexibility and control to be able to push jobs through as required instead of long lead times like other companies. Please be mindful though we need a Vector file of the logo or stencil you require otherwise we will need to draw it up from scratch which will cost more due to design time.
Yes, we recommend prior to line marking to give the best possible surface for the paint to adhere to. If you are not equipped to do so we can price to complete this for you as we have in-house scrubbing, sweeping and pressure washing machines.
Yes, we are a direct importer of all Car park fixtures and offer competitive pricing for all Car park fixtures to suit your needs.
No, we need to allow 21 days as a rule of thumb. During the curing process of the concrete or bitumen solvents or moisture are leeched from the surface rapidly. When we paint over these surfaces it often has negative effects on the paints causing it to flake off as the moisture tries to escape in concrete or change colour as the solvent leaves the bitumen.
This is heavily dependent on what the floor was sealed or cured with, in some instances it will stick and in others it won’t. Generally, a sample may be required to check the adhesion, if the product won’t stick then shot blasting or grinding may be required to key the surface for the paint to adhere to.
This is a hard question to answer as it varies from job to job depending on traffic and turnover. Standard Chlorinated Rubber paint generally should get 2 years and CAPS could get 5-10 years.
