Preparing a Weatherboard Home

The most important part of painting a weatherboard dwelling 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. Then prime ALL bare timbers and fillers without cutting any corners.

Now we are ready to paint!
