Five questions to ask before you paint your school.

Is your school scheduled for repainting in 2018?

If the answer is yes, then a few simple questions can help future-proof your assets, reduce stress and help you extract the maximum value from your budget.

What we’ve found from visiting schools throughout the country is, many principals would appreciate help in understanding what is required to increase the chances of having a smooth repaint project. Whether you’re an experienced principal or new, and simply exploring your options, Carus has five simple questions to ask before you engage a contractor.

Five essential questions to ask before you paint your school

  1. Do you know what complementary services are offered by the major paint companies (Dulux, Resene and Wattyl) to assist with your school’s repaint? It’s more than just colour options!
  2. Do you want a one-off repaint or a financed solution over time? What’s the best option for your school?
  3. Do you understand Consumer Price Indexing and how it affects repayments over the life of the repainting contract? Which contractors CP index and which do not?
  4. What is the best way to check the references on painting contractors?
  5. How do I future-proof the school’s assets with ongoing maintenance? How much is enough, and what is the most cost-efficient solution for my school?

Happy to help.

If you’d like the answers to these questions, or to discuss the services and options available to you and your school, contact me for an informal chat, a complimentary consultation or a quotation. Knowledge is power, and we’d be delighted to help.
