Kensington Exterior House Painters

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.

Painting Equipment and Tools

“When you think of painting, you think of brushes and rollers maybe? Well this one was boom lifts, harnesses, bollards, street signs and ‘caution’ tape. It resulted in lots of procedures and practices to make sure everyone was safe.”

Yes, we were the interior house painters too! The blue trim caused us many problems, due to it’s dark shade. As a result we just undercoated it three times! Normally, In contract, we undercoat all the trim just once.

Kensington Wallpaper Hanging

Our Colour Consultant and the customer finally came to a bold choice of wallpaper for a bathroom. It did take a little discussion here and there to agree! Nobody can say it’s an understated, or a vanilla choice.

The Wallpaper Installation

Whilst just a small room, it was full of difficult tasks. The bulkhead, power sockets, handrails, door furniture and even hanging wallpaper on a door.

We had to undercoat everything with Taubmans 3 in 1. This produces a sealed, chemically even surface, so we can hang wallpaper on it.

The wallpaper itself was over 1 metre in width and had to be pasted in a different room, so even walking through the doorway proved difficult.

The first drop, behind the doorway, was easy, but the other six drops proved to be anything but easy.

Sometimes it’s great to paint new builds, and sometimes not. It really makes a difference when you’re working with a good builder. Planning is key to everything for a great paint job, especially when you are working around other trades. This job was well planned, so it went smoothly and on time.

The customer had already decided the colour scheme. And with a clear remit our job was easy.

With these important aspects taken care of, these are the painting  jobs interior painters dream of.

Painted Black Doors

We had quite a challenge with the black painted doors, they were originally painted Low Sheen. Which looks great, however it is very easy to mark and damage. Due to a few kids in the family we had to come up with another plan.

So we suggested a semi gloss enamel, because gloss tends to look like a leather jacket from the 1970s. It worked a treat. And as so, it really complimented the black door furniture.
