Top dog - Harley Chambers

Harley ChambersFalse economies abound in today's society, with many still believing that the lowest price equates to the best value, but seldom is this the case. What may seem cheap now will invariably cost more in the long-run with earlier replacement or maintenance requirements. For the discerning, more expensive systems are associated with an increased range of benefits that easily justify the additional cost.

The Harley Chambers located at the corner of Worcester Boulevard and Cambridge Terrace in Christchurch is a case in point. Recently recoated in a system of Resene Quick Dry Acrylic Primer Undercoat followed by two topcoats of Resene Uracryl 403 gloss, a high performing popular engineered coating systems finish, this advanced system was selected following the presentation of three variously priced paint systems to the client. The most expensive option incorporating the Resene Uracryl topcoats was selected due to its ability to remain as clean and fresh as the day the paint was applied.

A regular washing down programme is in place to keep this central city building looking its best, making the investment in the Uracryl topcoat system a sound and well protected investment with long-term payback.
