M.J. Harris Painting are specialists when it comes to Exterior Painting in Melbourne. Our Exterior House Painters have successfully completed hundreds of exterior painting projects, from weatherboard homes to rendered houses.
Our Exterior Painting Process
Our painters start any painting project by protecting all surfaces that aren’t being painted. We protect every area with drop sheets, shielding them not only from paint splatters but more importantly from flaking paint that has been removed during the preparation stage.
This extensive preparation system is similar to the one we undertake when Interior House Painting. Our attention to detail is what sets us apart from other exterior house painting companies.
Our key preparation steps include:
- We sand all surfaces and sand in between coats
- We remove all flaking paint, blisters and rust
- We fill gaps, cracks and imperfections
- We power sand weatherboards and other flat surfaces
- We plane windows and doors to ensure the function after painting
- We prime all bare timbers and fillers prior to painting
Timber/Wood Rot Treatment
Our preparation prepares your home for painting but often we come across timber rot which cannot be filled. This requires our qualified Carpenters to use their skills to cut out the rot and replace with new timber. We offer a one-stop-shop approach to home restoration.
Using the right paint
We use only the best paints and premium ranges. We use Dulux Weathershield on our exterior paint projects, this range is Dulux’s top of the line paint for exterior use. For more information please visit here.
Using the right tradesmen
We are Dulux Accredited Painters and members of the Master Painters Victoria. We are covered by our Public Liability insurance, and we follow a comprehensive OH & S plan whilst working at your home.
Safely Working at Heights
Our team are trained and licensed in different areas that allow us to work safely at heights. Most of our staff have licences to operate machinery that lets us get to those hard to reach places. We also have several staff who are trained to work in harnesses whilst working at heights, allowing us to get where the machines can’t.
We also use scaffolding on many of our repaints, we hold relationships with several cost effective scaffolding companies in Melbourne. We organise onsite inspections before commencing to ensure the right scaffold is in place to keep everyone safe.
