What is a paint specification?
A specification outlines the products and colours that you would want to use on your building. An AkzoNobel specification will clearly explain the required surface preparation and number of coats needed for the chosen product on the given substrate (walls/ceilings/woodwork etc).
A paint specification can save you time & money
Our specification services are free, and having one, ensures that you and/or your painting contractors have the right guidance on what products you should use. This will then save you time & money, as following the specification will minimise disruption and downtime and help ensure that the job is done right the first time.
Research has shown where specifications are correct and fit for purpose the risk of experiencing common defects on site are reduced by around 75%. When tendering for work all bidders will be pricing on the same preparation and products detailed in the document. Environmental Compliance can only be achieved by selecting appropriate compliant product. All Dulux Trade specifications can be produced with LEED V4.1 BREEAM & WELL 2.0 compliance in mind. Ensuring products meet performance and environmental standards and regulation.
Getting a specification is easy when you work with Dulux Trade
We have a number of general specifications that are suitable for most painting jobs. Depending on the size of the project, we can also arrange for a bespoke specification. This will involve one of our Technical Support Manager visiting the site and writing the report.
Depending on the size of the project, we can attend pre-start meetings, offer site support visits during the project and produce post site inspections reports on completion to help ensure the specification is followed.
