Category: Exterior House Painters
Exterior House Painters. We’ve painted many different types of houses.
Weatherboards, Californian Bungalows, Modern, Terraces. In many different styles. Traditional, modern. You name it, we’ve painted it. Due to this, we’re very experienced in exterior painting, and it shows. So it’s easy job satisfaction for us. And due to this, not only can we see the results or our hard work, everyone can.
Painting weatherboard houses makes up a large part of our jobs. We are weatherboard painters Ascot Vale, and all over Melbourne, afterall. We’ve seen them in all shapes and sizes. And in all conditions. As exterior house painters, we have some experience in these matters.
We’ve seen pre-primed boards. Stripped weatherboard houses back to bare wood. Dealt with more bubbles than Moet. And more flakes than Cadburys. And whilst everyone is unique, they all require a little tender, love and care. Or as we weatherboard painters call it, sanding, filling and gapping.
Ascot Vale – Weatherboard House Painters
This weatherboard house had new Fibre Cement Weatherboards on it, the old ones had seen a hundred years of neglect. These new weatherboards shouldn’t rot, get termites and best of all shouldn’t expand, contract, move, endlessly produce resin, push out nails and weather quite so fast.
But it’s the same process for us weatherboard painters. Sanding, filling, gapping, priming and painting.
Fibre Cement Weatherboards are by there nature low maintenance, and we always apply a premium exterior paint, Dulux Weathershield in most cases. Giving a quality, long lasting painted finish.

Much of our time is spent exterior house painting in Kensington. As our local suburb, it’s great to not travel to work. Painting the traditional house exteriors is our bread and butter. Half are weatherboard houses, and the other are brick houses. Here in Kensington, we have both. However, both pose their own set of problems and will have their own character.

The brickwork was badly cracked, but the customer planned ahead, and as so, had organised a bricklayer to fixed these before we started painting. It’s great to plan ahead, because it fixes most problems before they arise. We always recommend our clients, have a good look around and fix up areas before we start. House maintenance is very important in protecting your investment. We help by putting the final touches to it.
When we’re painting the colours black and white together, it’s always gets a little difficult. Due to it being the most defined difference, in the colour palette, and that means we have no margin for error. No problem, because we have steady hands and nerves of steel, and that’s what’s needed!
As house painters Parkville, we paint a lot of sash windows, we even have a sash window manufacturer and installer who recommends us to paint newly installed sash windows. And as a result, we paint a lot of sash windows!
Painting sash windows is rather more difficult than you would initially think. Three coats, or more, on three moving parts. With areas are hidden from sight until opened, or closed, risks of parts sticking together. Gapping, Filling, Sanding, and two different top coats, one acrylic and one enamel.
How many times did we go back to paint the same window? We are experienced exterior house painters, and we know it’s a lot.
Waiting for paint to dry…
Due to all these parts of the process, sometimes they stick! We will unstick them obviously. And we’ll provide you with a fact sheet, so when we’ve left, you too can make sure that they won’t stick. Paint takes a little while to fully cure (dry).
We are the Windsor House Painters. Working alongside other trades, in this case, window suppliers, https://restoreasash.com.au/ is great for everyone. Why? Because we get to work with great products, the supplier gets to have their quality product presented in the best possible way, and as a result, the customer wins, again and again.
Painting sash windows is an integral part of the business, due to the fact that every other house in Melbourne has them. We have to be very good at painting them due to all the years we’ve spent painting them. We’re not only Windsor House Painters, but Melbourne House Painters too.
And another weatherboard painted! I have to admit, weatherboard houses are the reason I’m a painter. Why? It’s such an easy way to feel satisfied at the end of the day. And so we are the Weatherboard House Painters Kensington
It’s great to come to work and know you’re going to make a big difference. After the preparation, it’s amazing how quickly these houses change. Painting changes there character, gives them personality, and as a result, a reflection of you.
The colour choices here proved my first impressions wrong, because I thought they were a little too bland. Then the door was painted, and as a result, it really sprang to life. We are the Weatherboard House Painters Kensington.
