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.

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.

Much of our time is spent exterior house painting in Kensington. As our local suburb, it’s great to not travel to work. Painting the traditional house exteriors is our bread and butter. Half are weatherboard houses, and the other are brick houses. Here in Kensington, we have both. However, both pose their own set of problems and will have their own character.
Exterior House Painters
The brickwork was badly cracked, but the customer planned ahead, and as so, had organised a bricklayer to fixed these before we started painting. It’s great to plan ahead, because it fixes most problems before they arise. We always recommend our clients, have a good look around and fix up areas before we start. House maintenance is very important in protecting your investment. We help by putting the final touches to it.
When we’re painting the colours black and white together, it’s always gets a little difficult. Due to it being the most defined difference, in the colour palette, and that means we have no margin for error. No problem, because we have steady hands and nerves of steel, and that’s what’s needed!
We are the interior house painters Kew, but we can do so much more than painting walls and ceilings.
Often we get asked to paint kitchen and bathrooms, and we mean paint tiles and paint cabinet doors, not just the walls and ceilings. Why? Well There is a good reason.
Updating a ‘dated’ colour scheme.
The one in the images was a ‘bright orange’ wood, with a brown speckled bench top, which was great 20 years ago, as they knew no better then! And Now as a result, the new colour scheme will last another 20 years.
It’s the same with bathrooms. Because if there isn’t anything fundamentally wrong with the bathroom apart from the colour scheme, we can simply paint it. And due to the fact that your not getting an entire new bathroom or kitchen, it’s dramatically cheaper.
Whilst most kitchen will cost tens of thousands to build, repainting kitchen cabinets is considerable cheaper. It’s less intrusive, because we spend less time, we don’t have to rebuild the whole kitchen. We’re the interior house painters Kew that will make your kitchen or bathroom look great, and save you enough for a great holiday.
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.
