Local Weatherboard Painters

Painting weatherboard houses makes up a large part of our jobs. We are weatherboard painters Ascot Vale, and all over Melbourne, afterall. We’ve seen them in all shapes and sizes. And in all conditions. As exterior house painters, we have some experience in these matters.

We’ve seen pre-primed boards. Stripped weatherboard houses back to bare wood. Dealt with more bubbles than Moet. And more flakes than Cadburys. And whilst everyone is unique, they all require a little tender, love and care. Or as we weatherboard painters call it, sanding, filling and gapping.

Ascot Vale – Weatherboard House Painters

This weatherboard house had new Fibre Cement Weatherboards on it, the old ones had seen a hundred years of neglect. These new weatherboards shouldn’t rot, get termites and best of all shouldn’t expand, contract, move, endlessly produce resin, push out nails and weather quite so fast.

But it’s the same process for us weatherboard painters. Sanding, filling, gapping, priming and painting.

Fibre Cement Weatherboards are by there nature low maintenance, and we always apply a premium exterior paint, Dulux Weathershield in most cases. Giving a quality, long lasting painted finish.

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.

Here’s what the house looked like before we started painting, https://www.realestate.com.au/sold/property-house-vic-kensington-128544686

And as a result, here’s what it looks like now,  https://www.realestate.com.au/property/59-the-ridgeway-kensington-vic-3031

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 we undercoat all the trim just once. Never ask ‘how many coats have you painted?’ to a painter. Chances are, the painter has done one more than you think.

Victorian Weatherboard houses always provide satisfaction. Taking run down old houses and turning them into gems, is one of the reasons we work as a Victorian Weatherboard painters.

“This one’s a work in progress, hence we should have it 99% done by the end of the week.”

Weatherboard houses are full of character, some of that character is in the lovely little details. However most of that character is usually called maintenance.

Typically a weatherboard house should be painted every 10-15 years, but I’ve seen paint jobs only last a couple of years almost always as a result of a poor job. Due usually to little or no preperation, unprimed boards and, or a poor product was used as a top coat.

We sand, then sand again, between coats and then just because. All new boards are primed, that pink or white stuff the boards are sprayed in is a ‘transit primer’, and not a real primer. As a result our paint job will last. We gap, we fill, we sand. Then we paint, and finally sand and paint.

Painting In The Winter – Newport

Painting in the rain. Newport

The Rain Didn’t Stop Play. Newport

“Plagued by bad weather, we still delivered on time. Okay. Whilst time restraints weren’t on me, I did promise the customer ‘by the weekend’, so we worked the weekend. Painting in the winter rain.” Sterling Exterior House Painters always go the extra mile.

The Colour Consultant did a fantastic job, the house looks great, in keeping with the neighbourhood, reflects the customers’ taste and best of all? It won’t look dated any time soon. I can pass on her details.

Painting in the Winter Rain

We used Norglass Marine Clear Varnish on the woodwork, as recommended by Footscray Paintspot. Difficult to use, but I’m told, the best product for the job. Always worth asking advise. We’re the painters, the experts on product application. The experts on product knowledge are the guys at the paint shop.

We also used semi gloss on everything else, this provides a slippy surface that dust and moisture find hard to stay on. Gloss is even better, but maybe a little too refective for some people’s taste!

Paints Used:

  • Weatherboards: Weathershield semi gloss – Self Destruct
  • Ceilings: Weathershield semi gloss – Hogs Bristle half
  • Gate/Render/Fence: Weathershield semi gloss – Caveman
