Surface Preparation

We provide proven preparation techniques for nearly every type of surface using an assortment of mechanical preparation methods. We ensure an efficient process by having tradespeople trained in the latest techniques and safety procedures.


Chemical Stripping

We use eco-friendly and advanced paint removal processes which are not only ideal for lead based paints, but also have the added benefit of minimising damage to the substrate beneath.


High Pressure Water Cleaning

We provide a high pressure water cleaning service both for pre-painting preparation and general cleaning requirements.


Protective Coatings

Our dedicated team can assist with expert advice on developing both beautiful and practical landscaping solutions. From design and planning, to landscaping, plant and tree selection, paving and pathways, courtyard renovations, concrete resurfacing, asphalting, sandstone and fencing, drainage and water minimisation techniques.


Lead Abatement

Higgins lead abatement is a process of safely reducing lead paint hazards. Depending on the project this includes paint removal or encapsulation, whereby hazardous coatings are sealed with specialised coatings.
