Exterior Preparation

Preparation is the key to perfection

This extensive exterior painting 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

Exceptional service, quality of work and knowledge I received for both a commercial & residential job. Highly recommended.

Anthony Meikle

My wife and I have used M. J. Harris a number of times for painting and carpentry work and they have always done an excellent job at a good price.


The team were outstanding from the word go. Not only was their work of the highest quality but they are a group of really friendly and professional people.
