Some courts need a new binder coat and recolouring to ensure the stability of the playing surface, whilst giving it a fresh new look. We cover a range of colours, not all courts are green. All courts we repaint have a pressure clean beforehand and the surface repaired.
Binder and recolouring are usually required every 5-7 years depending on the court’s use, location and maintenance regime. It is highly recommended that you take out one of our maintenance programmes to protect your investment.
It is essential that the court surface is as clean as possible so that the binders get into the voids in the substrate, binds the aggregate and covers it with a film for the paint to adhere to. If applied to a dirty surface then the binder and paint will just peel off. We would not be able to guarantee any work carried out on a surface not prepared by ourselves. You are welcome to minimise our amount of cleaning
It is always recommended to have a binder application before recolouring the court. The binder fills voids in the court and binds the aggregate which strengthens the surface and provides a good underlayer for the coloured paint. We would not be able to guarantee any court which is coloured without a prior binder application.
The polyurethane binder is designed specifically for porous macadam courts and the thin flexible film will not affect surface porosity.
We use a polyurethane binder which we believe to be far superior to the much cheaper water-based option that is available on the market and this is reflected in our quoted price.
