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).
A great house and a great exterior painting project in Albert Park. Years of needing a bit more love and attention showed. Peeling paint and repares left this house looking damaged and unwanted.
Permits galore were needed to make the Albert Park Painting happen, and yes we can deal with all the paperwork for you. Permit for the electricity cables, permit for the street/pavement access and permit to used the street/pavement. Along with street diagrams/site maps. A lot of paperwork for us Albert Park House Painters.
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.”

Exterior House Painters Kensington – The Seventies Dream House
“Nostalgia, remembering better times, when I was young, things were better then.” – We as Exterior House Painters Kensington, know better.
When you have little to no choice, you have to work with what you’ve got. And that’s what happened here. Rather than try to hide the ‘SEVENTIES’, and some people try to, this customer embraced it and worked with it.
It now looks like a sharp, hip trendsetting seventies, Lou Reed if you will, rather than the faded old embarrassment, Brotherhood of Man, ask your parents.
