COLOUR montage - digital overlay of paint colours
See what the proposed new scheme will look like before the work begins.
Visualisation isn't something that everyone is good at, especially when it comes to large scale projects. Colour montages take the pressure and guesswork out of the project allowing the client to see the result before the work begins.
Choosing exterior colour schemes for larger buildings can be quite challenging and many factors are taken into consideration throughout this process. The right colour scheme could mean a higher value for the owners when it comes to property sales. Getting this right can even procure a quicker sale if the exterior colour provides the right curb appeal and is favoured by prospective buyers. In the same way, a bad colour scheme can have a dramatic affect on sale-ability and therefore affect real dollar value.
Why use this service?
This service is perfect for large scale new builds and multi-residential or commercial exterior colour selection and paint projects. Typically this service is well suited to Strata Managers and body corporate groups and commercial building management.
Property owners and multi residential committee groups in particular are often overwhelmed when faced with the final decision for their exterior colour.
Hiring an expert to make some colour selections is a great place to start. Making that final decision from a possible range of schemes requires exceptional visualisation skills.These skills take a professional designer many years to master after years of experience. If you're in this situation, photo overlays are a great option.

Is the overlay image colour accurate?
The final overlay is very accurate! The colours are taken from the paint company's own website to ensure that you see a truly accurate representation of the chosen scheme on a photograph of the building.
A4 samples of all the colours are provided so that you can see the actual colour sample in conjunction with the digital overlay image and multiple options are included in the service if you'd like to make comparisons and vote on the outcome.
