TDA Developments, residential property developers
Name of client and their core business:
TDA Developments, residential property developers.
Name and location of client project:
Mangrove Estate, a 24-unit, access-controlled residential complex in Fairview, Verulam.
What were the client’s pain(t) points?
The development was completed in 2013. However, just four years later, settlement cracks, high moisture levels and plaster shrinkage caused the paint to delaminate, making it look shabby and unsightly.
Highlight the benefits of Dekade’s solution – from a technical/functional perspective, what made its performance superior?
Dekade was able to offer the client a high performance, fully durable, exterior coating with exceptional longevity at lower cost. Dekade Low Sheen is a pure acrylic with outstanding stain resistance. Its UV stability and higher sheen level helps it not only to perform optimally, but better than other options available on the local market.
What made our solution more cost-effective in the long-term compared to others?
Compared to similar products in its price range, Dekade Low Sheen requires less paint yet has exceptional coverage without compromising on lifespan.
How much did we save the client, from a cost, time, and effort perspective?
At least 20% less in time, cost, and effort savings. The better spread rate resulted in the project finishing quicker than the projected timeframe and also cost the contractor less on labour.
From an aesthetics perspective, how did Dekade’s solution lift the complex’s appearance?
We were able to match the colours they had chosen from an alternate brand but with a higher sheen level, which has dramatically enhanced the complex’s “kerb-appeal” and overall condition.
Quote from Dion Chinnian, chief foreman of TDA Developments, residential property developers
“Thanks to the solid relationship we’ve built up with Dekade over the past four years, together with their service excellence and technical advice we’ve always received, I completely trust Dekade’s judgement and recommendations. It’s no longer just price that matters. By getting the proper expertise and recommendations upfront, I’ve minimised the risk of comebacks. For me, it’s a great relief attending site meetings and quoting on new jobs as I always know I have the backup of Shave’s, my local Dekade stockist, which at times works in my favour with customers when they find out who my supplier is.”
