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.
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.

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.

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 with the painting, you have to work with what you’ve got. And that’s what happened here. Rather than paint over and try to hide the ‘SEVENTIES’, and some people try to, this customer embraced it and worked with it.
Painted so 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.
On a serious note, this one posed a couple of painting problems.
The first, access. Access is always an issue with painting. Simply put, how do we get to the surface we need to paint. This one had small walls in the areas we needed to put to ladders to reach the top of the building.
The second, render. Render can be very hard to paint. Sometimes it’s so dry that even a brush stroke is impossible. This also means much more paint is needed. Render also shows brush and lap marks, so cold, damp days can be best!
