When we are painting courts, we actually put down 3 coats of paint after the binder goes down. The datasheet only states 2, but we find that 3 gives much better coverage and keeps the court looking fresher for longer.
Painting your court not only gives it a fresh look but also prolongs the life of the court surface too. The binder goes down first to hold the court together and gives the paint a sturdier platform to grip onto. 3 coats of paint are then sprayed on top.
Before any paintings occur, we do all repairs to the surface first.
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.
A representation of the standard court colours is shown in the adjacent chart (two tones of green, two tones of blue and red. Special colours are also available on request but will be subject to lead times.
The price of special colours will be requested from the paint manufacturer as it depends on their runs and the demand for that colour. The cost of other standard colours is the same as two tone green but there may be a wait for other colours due to the manufacturer’s runs. The two tones of green are always available.
Yes, any colour and any colour combination is possible. We often advise customers with very old courts to consider painting the court dark green all over as it disguises any blemishes better and gives an overall even finish.
We pride ourselves on our work and customer service and will return to address any immediate concerns. We will guarantee the recolouring of your court for two years providing that you sign up for the recommended maintenance programme so preventable damage is minimised.
This depends on whether the court is regularly maintained; thus minimising preventable damage and the position/aspect of the court; courts in the shade, surrounded by trees or under telephone lines where birds like to sit will deteriorate at a faster rate. Life expectancy, therefore, ranges from 5-7 years.
We need dry weather with the temperature above 14 degrees for curing which are usually restricted to days between May and mid-September. However, it is best to plan this with us in advance as there are a number ofpreparatory steps that will need to be carried out prior to the final finishing phase.
You may walk on the court once it has dried but should not play tennis for 4 days to allow time for the paint to cure.
We put 3 layers of paint on the court even though the data sheet says that 2 should be sufficient?
