There are many factors to consider when repainting your house

Interior House Painting

Identify your palette
  • Collect samples and brochures from your favourite paint suppliers and ensure you choose the right paint.

  • Do a few test patches before getting started. This will make sure you’re completely happy with the colour chosen.

  • Depending on the lighting in your home, paint colours can appear differently once applied to internal walls.

Prepare the surface
  • Before getting started, it is important to clean the surface of any dirt, blue tack, scuffs, pen, texta, hand prints and holes.

  • From simple wash downs of walls, to more involved wall repairs, our team of painters can assess the project and advise how to best clean your internal walls.

  • If the walls are new and have never been painted, our team can advise the best undercoat and paints to use, for best results.

  • We are happy to prepare the surface for you

Exterior House Painting

  • We take pride in our work and recommend you research before getting started.

  • Research company testimonials. Websites and word of mouth are a great way to do this.

  • Visit your local hardware store and paint stores to collect brochures and sample pots

  • Look online. There are many websites and apps that offer helpful ideas.

Getting Started
  • Prepare the area for painting. Your exterior may need to be brushed, cleaned, high pressure washed or sanded. We will liaise with you and can assist with this too.

  • Check the weather. Consider the time of year when planning your project and keep your eye on the forecast. The rule of thumb is the wall temperature must be warmer than 10oC and below 35oC throughout the painting process.
