Weatherboard House Painting

Restore Your Weatherboard Home

Is your weatherboard home looking a little worse for wear? At MJ Harris Painting, we specialize in weatherboard painting and repairs.

Weatherboard cladding has been a part of Australian home design since the early days of European settlement. Many of Melbourne’s period homes are weatherboard houses, and some of its newer homes have adopted the rustic charm of this style as well.

Preparing a Weatherboard Home

The most important part of painting a weatherboard house is the preparation stage. We have a strict regimen when it comes to preparation. First we

  1. Pressure Wash, removing all dirt, mould and flaking paint.
  2. Then we sand, scrape, burn off all flaking, blistering and bubbling paint.
  3. Source all rotting timber, replacing where required
  4. We power sand all surfaces with orbital sanding machines.
  5. We fill all gaps, cracks and imperfections, even the ones you cant see!
  6. We prime ALL bare timbers and fillers without cutting any corners.

Now we are ready to paint!
