Latest Restoration Darfield St Joseph's Catholic Church
We are delighted with our latest restoration of Darfield St Joseph's Catholic Church.
Paul and his team are delighted with the re-paint of the Darfield Catholic Church recently. We were invited to submit a quotation for the painting of the Darfield Church 30 years ago when it was in a perilous state.
The colour was Resene Echo Blue which looked quite spectacular when the grounds were covered with snow. However, there was a certain amount of derision amongst the parishioners and the end result 30 years later as you can see by the images below. Over 200 cracks that were repaired using an epoxy injection.
This church was extensively cracked by the earthquakes and with specialist coatings it has been transformed in its new modern Wattle Dolpin Grey Quarter with trim of Double Dolpin Grey and campings in Oil Stone including the infills of the fence.
The old 30 year old coating had stood the time remarkably well owing to the heavy application of the Resene X200 coating.
It was decided to re-coat the Church in a membrane coating which is flexible and thick, in fact around 340 MICRONS DFT. The reasoning was to utilise Granosite membrane coating which stretches many times its own thickness thereby coating minor cracks if they should open up and thus providing a good waterproofing weather coating. Thus coating where possible any further hair-line cracks which may further appear during the earthquakes in Canterbury. 25 years on and we are delighted with our restoration of the St Joseph's Darfield Catholic Church. Paul painted this year originally aprox. 1991 and has recently completed repairs and repaint of this beautiful example of pseudo historcial Church. This church is unique in that is a solid poured concrete structure with Oamaru Stone window surrounds.
