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.
