Four Ways A Painter Can Help Maintain The Exterior Of Your Wellington House

The variable weather and the additional issues of living by the sea in some of Wellington's suburbs, takes its toll on a house so regular maintenance of the outside of a property should be high on the list of priorities for the capital's homeowners. If you are thinking about carrying out exterior maintenance or want to give the outside of your property a facelift before selling or renting, a professional painter and decorator can help in many different areas.

Repainting a roof can give a new lease of life to a house, and can also help to protect the roof from damage, reducing long-term maintenance costs from problems such as rust on metal roofs or moss on the tiles. A painting company can wash, repair and respray your roof either in a similar colour or in a new shade if you want a change.

Your fences and surrounding walls are the first thing people see.  Think about sprucing them up with a new stain or plain wood paint. Add a touch of glamour with a bright colour or pattern. If you are short of ideas, ask a decorator what they think would work well with the existing colour of your house and any landscaping you have.

When summer comes, there is no better way to spend an evening than outside on the deck enjoying a barbie or a glass of wine as the sun goes down. Getting your deck re-stained or painted can improve the look of your outdoor setting as well as ensuring the wood lasts another summer of use. You could even think about getting your fences and deck done by the painter at the same time to ensure a coherent look throughout your garden.

Wind, rain, sea salt and simply the passing of time can all cause exterior paintwork to deteriorate whether it is weatherboarding, painted brickwork or window surrounds. Hiring a painting professional to redo your exterior paintwork can save you time and money on what can often be a difficult job, particularly if your property is more than one storey and the work will involve ladders or scaffolding.

Access to Wellington properties can be tricky, so if you live up a flight of outside stairs or parking is an issue, mention it in advance. With the weather and sea salt, it can pay in the long-term to use superior products even if they are more expensive. Talk to your painter about whether the paint used is designed to withstand Wellington conditions before you agree on the contract.

If you are planning to get more than one part of your property painted ask the company if they do special packages that include several options and offer better value for money. Some decorating companies also offer annual maintenance plans to keep your house in tip-top condition.

Garage Door Colour Update Challenge Solved By Our Tradies

A simple colour update for her garage doors was all that one homeowner wanted. But it proved a little easier said than done until a “can do” tradie was found... The Job Paulette wanted to update the colour of her metal garage doors from what she called a “bland new denim blue” to a more striking ebony black. The Challenge Paulette contacted the garage door company to find out if, and how, the colour could be changed. They came back with two options; replacing the doors entirely at great expense; or powder coating at a cost not much less than new doors, and required them being taken away for two to three weeks. The Solution Not satisfied with these options, Paulette turned to builderscrack.co.nz to see if there were any other options. She already trusted the platform, having used it in the past to find some great tradies. For Paulette, the “ease of use is the best thing”, going on to say that “once you’ve used it the first time, it’s easy to go back and use again” and

She credits her forward-thinking parents for giving her the unwavering belief she can do anything. While studying at university for her Physical Education degree, Sam took on building and painting jobs to support herself. She continued her trade work in between her sporting work over the following years.

Exterior paint 2 bed house - scaffolding required

Posted 1 week ago

Small house - 2 story - 3 sides as it shares a wall with the neighbour. Nails need to be rust treated - it's right opposite the sea.

I'm keen to get it done soon but the weather is terrible! and I'm guessing painters are booked up for a while. It would be a nice job as you could listen to the...
