Exterior House Painters & Weatherboard Painters.
You know living in Melbourne, there are a few weatherboard houses about. I even live in one. Because of all of this, we’ve painted lots and lots or weatherboard houses. We are the Weatherboard Painters because of it! Each weatherboard we paint, so develops our skills and improves our knowledge. Whilst they look similar, no two are the same!

Heritage Paint Colours
Weatherboard houses are great to add a splash of colour to. What if you’re in a heritage overlay area? Well you should just check out the heritage colours, it’s not just Brunswick Green, Indian Red and Classic Cream!! Infact the ranges can be a little eye opening. Please refer to your local council, they will have a list and, they even have colour specialist to help and sign off your colour scheme.
Even though you can’t see it, this house has a bright ‘Red’ front door. So if you’re not feeling brave enough, only paint the door! You can always paint it another colour next season.
We, as painters, enjoy working with colour, and trust us we aren’t going to leave your house looking like it’s in a maelstrom.
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.

“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!
