The above is what builders have to warranty the painting for...🙄 With the exception of


QUEENSLAND | MAY 2019 STANDARDS AND TOLERANCES GUIDE, we have inserted a snippet of what is covered in queensland painting tolerances.⠀

section 13.5 Paint durability⠀
With the exception of exterior semi-transparent and exterior clear finishes and unless documented otherwise, coatings are defective if a large proportion (in excess of 10%) of the painted area fails by lifting, blistering, flaking or allows water penetration into the building.⠀

𝗪𝗶𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗳𝗶𝗿𝘀𝘁 𝟭𝟮 𝗺𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗵𝘀 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗲𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸⠀
1-is defective if it does not comply with the manufacturer’s installation instructions or AS/ NZS 2311 - Guide to the Painting of Buildings.⠀
2- is defective if application defects or blemishes such as paint runs, paint sags, wrinkling, dust, bare or starved painted areas, colour variations, surface cracks, irregular and coarse brush marks, sanding marks, blistering, uniformity of gloss level and other irregularities are visible in the surface from a⠀
normal viewing position.⠀
3-excessive over-painting of fittings, trims, skirtings, architraves, glazing and other⠀
finished edges.⠀
4-, fixings or unfilled depressions caused by fixings are defects in painted or stained surfaces if they can be seen from a normal viewing position.⠀
5- holes and any other unfilled depressions in painted or stained timber such as surface defects caused by mechanical damage, natural characteristics such as gum pockets or surface splits are defects if they can be seen from a normal viewing position.⠀

The Guide to Standards and Tolerances (the Guide) has been developed for use by builders and building owners as a convenient reference for acceptable standards of workmanship in domestic building construction. It is intended to address areas that are not prescribed under legislation or under a domestic building contract.⠀

There are many solutions to prevent efflorescence, including:⠀

➊ Hydrophobic Sealant: Applying an impregnating hydrophobic sealant to a building material surface can prevent the absorption of water. The sealant also will stop water from traveling within a building material.⠀
➋ Capillary Breaks: Installing capillary breaks such as polyethylene sheeting between a building material and soil can minimize the risk of salt entering the material.⠀
➌ Quality Masonry Construction: Implementing overhanging copings, eaves and flashings will minimize the risk of water from entering a wall.⠀
➍ Increased Emphasis on Landscaping and Sprinklers: Paying special attention to landscaping and sprinklers will ensure you can prevent water from reaching porous building materials.⠀
➎ Installing Grout With Mechanical Vibration: Consolidating grout with mechanical vibration will limit the chance of voids in the grout.⠀
➏ Using Dense Tooled Mortar Joints: Leveraging dense tooled mortar joints reduces the porous nature of a wall, making it tough for salts to migrate through it.⠀
➐ Utilizing Grout Admixtures: Grout admixtures, such as chemical additives that are designed to improve the flow of a grout mix and reduce its water content simultaneously, may reduce voids in grout.⠀
➑ Storing Masonry Materials Properly: Keeping masonry materials off the ground and covering them with waterproof materials can protect these materials against groundwater and precipitation.⠀

Reinforcement is designed to be in a particular place so as to add strength or to control cracking of the concrete. A displacement from its intended location could make a significant difference to the life or serviceability of the structure. Supports for fabric reinforcement are provided to prevent the fabric distorting when workers walk on top of it to place⠀
the concrete and maintain the correct concrete cover to the fabric.⠀

In order to obtain a good bond between concrete and reinforcement, the reinforcement should be free of contamination by mud, paint, oils, etc. It is not necessary for the reinforcement to be completely free of rust. Some rusting is beneficial in promoting a good bond as it roughens the surface of the steel. Loose rust, however, must be removed from the⠀
reinforcement.⠀
