Kew exterior house painters

Sterling House Painters have  been painting this lovely house in Kew over the winter. A lot of preparation and scaffold has been needed, due to the hard to reach places.

Because of the textured rendered exterior we used Weathershield Masonry Matt, instead of the normal Low Sheen. It gives a calmed down cool stone effect.

Exterior House Painters, in the Winter

Does exterior house painting in the winter cause the painters problems? Well, unfortunately it does, but only for the painters!

As you know, Melbourne has at least 4 seasons in one day. So just by weighing up the weather reports, our experience and seeing what it’s actually doing, we,  Kew exterior house painters, can usualy paint.

And because it’s cooler, it’s better to paint. Cooler means the paint get’s to dry naturally at an ambient temperature. The paint is easier to apply, and so we end up with a better finish.

Too Cold For a Dip? Painting in Winter

Whilst the pool maybe shut up for the winter, and no chance of sangria now,  and there maybe be a chance of ice, we still have to paint house exteriors in the winter. Painting Essendon between downpours.

Rugged up and thermal wrapped, we’ll paint your house in the depths of the frozen tundra. Winter is coming? John Snow isn’t an employee, sorry, get over it! But we are, and he’s not that dashing anyway!

Painting in Winter – Essendon

Commonly we are asked to paint house exteriors in the winter, and at the same time asked if it’s too cold to paint. No it’s not too cold, for the paint at least. In fact the paint takes longer to dry is a good thing.

Well the sun came out when I was painting the zinc awnings, so they heated up and felt hot to touch! The second coat on one dried too fast and uneven. Ruined. I repainted later, when clouds came over. It’s good to paint in winter.

The only thing that may cause problems is the dew point. That’s when the moisture in the air becomes too much for anything to dry. Usually about 4pm mid winter. We’ve finished for the day by then.

Weatherboard House Painters Balaclava

It’s great for us to paint a heritage weatherboard houses and make them look really special. And as so, now we’re House Painters Balaclava, doing just that!

The owner took our advice and we painted the house entirely in Dulux Weathershield gloss. Because gloss forms a barrier that simply repells rain and dust, and so, the house is protected for longer.

Recommending the trim at the sides and back be painted in a lighter colour, rather than the traditional dark green, gave a better idea of space. And as so, made the house seem larger. See Sterling Exterior Painters for more details.

Paints Used:

  • Weatherboards: Dulux Weathershield gloss Regency White.
  • Trim: Dulux Weathershield gloss Bronzed Green
  • Trim: Dulux Weathershield gloss Regency White quarter
