Building Painting at height can be a challenging proposition but our team of abseiling painters have been exterior and interior painting using rope access for years, and we have the experience and skills for any size of job.
Efficiency is the key, and as we have no set up or break down, so we can start the exterior or interior painting of your building within hours of arriving on site, and this means you get a quicker and substantially more cost effective outcome; even ‘traditional’ painting companies who would have previously used scaffolding are now calling upon rope access companies like Globe for their high level painting.
To give you an idea, our sister company were recently awarded the contract to repaint the Dungeness Lighthouse, a listed building on the Kent coast. It actually needed urgent restoration as well, and we had to fill in masonry cracks first before applying 4 layers of paint – approximately 1.4 tonnes in total!
To do this job using scaffolding would have been very expensive and the time taken would have increased greatly. (Scaffolding also has the tendency to be in the place that needs to be painted and you can’t move it, so that place is often forgotten or passed over!)
Because we’ve very little equipment apart from what we’re working with at the time we were able to get on with the job so the building was painted in the shortest time. There were no delays waiting for the scaffolding to be erected; the day we arrived was the day we started to paint (or made good before as needed).
So, regardless of whether you are changing the entire colour scheme of your building or simply performing the building painting as necessary maintenance, using a Rope Access Company will save you both time and money. You’ll get a faster and more thorough job at a fraction of the price of alternative methods.
We simply abseil down from the roof or ceiling, so that you never have to worry about the security or safety risks of scaffolding, and it’s minimum disruption at ground level.
