Lead Paint Removal/Paint Stripping Projects

Common among other painting services is the practice of painting over lead paint with newer paint. This is only a short-term solution as the lead paint can still become an issue if the new paint coat deteriorates and becomes powdery or flaky.

Intercoat Painting is committed to protecting you and your family from toxic lead paint for the lifetime of your home. We use industry leading practices to remove lead paint, ensuring that our team and your family are safe. Our team will also maintain open, transparent, and regular communication with you to ensure that you can be confident that you and your family are safe.

The Dangers of Lead Paint

Exposure to lead is a major health hazard. The toxic substances in lead can affect people of all ages and is especially harmful to pregnant women and their babies, and children.

If you see any cracking, holes, or chalking in your lead paint then you are breathing in trace amounts of toxic lead and exposing your family and guests to the same.

Does Your Home Have Lead Based Paint?

Lead paint is deceiving. There are no visible signs that distinguish lead based paint from paint with no traces of lead, they essentially look like the same product when applied.

A good place to start when determining if your home or building has lead paint is to follow the lead paint presence index below:

Lead Paint Presence in Australian Property

Prior 1965: 50% | 1965 to 1992: 1% |1992 – 1997: 0.25% | 1997 – Current: 0.1%

This index does not positively confirm the presence of lead paint in your property, however. The best way to be accurate and get peace of mind is to perform a lead test, a service that Intercoat Painting can offer for free as part of a consultation.

Our Process

Step 1: Scope
We thoroughly review documents and plans to determine an accurate scope of work. You’ll then receive an itemised quote from our friendly team.

Step 2: Schedule
After accepting a quote, we’ll go through the schedule with you and arrange an on site visit one or two weeks prior to the painting start date.

Step 3: Communicate
As painting time approaches, we will run through our process in detail with the site foreman. Together we will determine the optimal process to achieve the highest quality results for your project.

Step 4: Prepare
Once the specific trades required have completed their tasks, we will complete a top to bottom inspection of all painting areas to ensure that the necessary preparation has been completed.

Step 5: Paint
We will then apply the initial coat to all substrates, leaving the final coat to be completed after an internal inspection. This guarantees a smooth, flawless paint finish.

Step 6: Finish
A final walk through will be conducted in order to successfully handover the project.
