Is It Time To Paint Your Weatherboard?

Bespoke Artisan Weatherboard Exterior Painters. Brunswick

if you think it’s time to paint your weatherboard, then your friends have thought it for a long time!

Now that the BBQ season is just about over, it’s time to get your home painted, and ready for next year.  We know it’s a social whirl, and impressions count. Has your weatherboard been letting you down? Does it show you up? Is it still in last years colours?

Shabby chic is not ‘in’ anymore, it’s not the 90’s. Peeling, blistering paint isn’t cool. We know it. Design magazines know it. Your friends know it, and they’ve been talking behind your back about your dated weatherboard house.

We at Sterling Painters only apply the world famous boutique Dulux Weathershield on weatherboards. Using time honoured techniques handed down generation to generation, father to son, such as sanding and painting. We’ll use buzzwords like small batch, fluid, stone ground and hand finished. We’ll even grow beards and stroke them whilst admiring our handywork.

Soon, you’ll be the envy of your friends. They’ll still talk behind your back, obviouly, but you can be safe in the knowledge that it’s just jealously.

Dulux Colour Movement

“We are in motion, movement is all around us – a blur of colour, a subtle shift of light, a merge of shadows. Movement is social change, the rise of a nation, the protest of people, the progress of the digital age. The Dulux Colour Forecast – Colour Movement, explores how colour is moving around us, shifting and changing along with our world and all that is in it.”

Dulux as always provides lots of seasonal ideas, and gadgets to help. ‘MyColour Visualiser’ as great tool, just upload your picture and literally colour it in.

We never tire of painting weatherboards. Whilst they all look similar, no two are the same, they all have their own personalities, and this usually has something to do with the owner!

How your home looks is a reflection of you. Well painted and well-kept tells the world what you think of yourself.
