Exterior House Painting Seddon, Edward Street West Melbourne
Recently, Mcintosh painters were contracted for an Exterior House Painting job in Seddon.
One of our most recent projects was this full external repaint for a residential double storey house in Edward Street, Seddon, a suburb in West Melbourne.
The owner contacted us as the property’s exterior was severely weather damaged and in need of a full revitalisation. You can read more about the house painting details and see some photos from the project below.
Preparing the surfaces
After sitting down with the client to discuss what they wanted and following a thorough health and safety inspection, our team set to work preparing the surfaces for the repaint.
Firstly we used power sanders on the entire exterior of the house in order to remove any old paint, and flaky and damaged timber. Once the surfaces were smooth, we then followed this up with a coat of the Taubmans 3 in 1 Undercoat to seal the surfaces. This is an important product when it comes to house painting as it ensures smooth, glossy surfaces, ready for us to paint on; providing a professional and polished look.
Once the surfaces were sealed, we then set to work filling where required in order to ensure that the whole exterior was smooth and uniform. Following this, we added another layer of undercoat in order to provide a solid foundation for us to paint on.
Putting up the Scaffolding
Seeing as this was a double storey home, access was a little tricky, thus scaffolding was required.
Firstly, we used adjustable feet extension ladders as well as planks and other scaffolding; ensuring full access to all areas of the property’s exterior.
Painting the exterior
Our team set to work painting the windows, doors and frames using Wattyl High Gloss Enamel Paint to polish up their appearance.
We also painted the weatherboards with two coats of Wattyl Solagard paint. This high-quality product is very important when doing exterior painting as it works by blocking out harmful UV rays, providing long-lasting weather protection and preventing cracking and peeling of the paint.
Then it was time to paint the rest of the home’s exterior. For this paint job, the colours that we used were a white and antique white combination. Our client wanted the repaint to match the current style of the home, yet also offer a fresh and modern look.
The Final look: Exterior House Paint Seddon
Both our client and team of house painters were delighted with the finished result. The repaint transformed the overall look and feel of the home. Simultaneously, adding the benefit of a protecting the home from the elements, for many years.
