Whether you’re installing macadam for a multi-use sports area, a tennis court or simply for a playground, you’ll want to apply paint.
It’s important to have professionals carry out this job for a range of reasons. The correct paint for the surface is needed, you will want it done accurately and there are other processes that need to be prepared.
You can’t just throw some paint onto the floor, it will need to be done with precision and you’ll want to clean the ground beforehand. This is a hugely important factor and should not be overlooked.
