Exterior Painting Sydney
Exterior painting in Sydney during the warmer months can be enjoyable, but if it’s too hot, it tends to be exhausting, especially if you are working on roofs or standing on an extension ladder painting the guttering.
On the other hand, if the temperature is too cold, the exterior painting may have to be rescheduled if the weather takes a turn, and the rain starts hammering down on your freshly prepared windows, or, even better, strong gusts of wind attempt to blow you from your scaffold.
Exterior painting requires careful planning and preparations, Sydney homes can vary greatly from suburb to suburb, below are some interesting points to keep in mind when you decide to hire a professional house painter or simply want to have a go at painting the house yourself 😉
We recommend covering any plants and flowers prior to painting – We use the iQuip Biodegradable Drop Sheet. It is also a smart move to ‘double-up’ the canvas drop sheets you use on the ground, to avoid any flying droplets or accidental paint pot kicks.
Exterior house painting can be very straight forward, all you need is the proper equipment and tools to do the job safe and smoothly. It starts with organising and maintaining the most ideal work environment (as much as possible) i.e. move any objects out of the way, cover the ground with canvas drop sheets, cover plants and flowers, position ladders and scaffolding so they’re leveled, monitor hazards periodically to make sure you’re always in a safe work environment.
Tape around the edges of windows and doors to avoid getting any stray paint droplets flying on to any brickwork or rendered wall – we use iQuip, Envo Tape for the best results, you could also just use 3M Scotchblue painters tape.
At the end of the day, it saves you time – if you don’t tape, you’ll find yourself trying to scrape off the dried paint at the end of the project, and that is the last thing you want to be doing!
exterior painting issues
Exterior painters work with numerous problematic household issues i.e. mold growth, rising and falling damp, rust, water stains on ceilings, large cracks in walls and ceilings, peeling and flaking paint on ceilings, and so on.
When working on the exterior of a property, it’s best to keep in mind that whilst painting, you might notice damage to the house that the homeowner isn’t already aware of i.e. broken roof tiles, rotted facia, rotted rafters or eaves, broken or displaced brickwork, and so on.
This might help them in the long run, as they could possibly prevent mould growth, damp, leakages, and flaking paint from happening later down the track.
tools + paints
To ensure your paint job resembles that of a professional exterior painter, make sure you purchase the best tools, the correct type of exterior paint for the job (low sheen, flat, semi-gloss and/or gloss), and fillers e.g. (great one for small fills is K2 Stucco).
Correct preparation is our key element and should be yours as well: fill gaps around windows, doors, framing, filling small and large holes with plaster or builders bog and re-plastering cracks in walls, facia, eaves etc. Only the best house painters in Sydney follow these guidelines.
can exterior house painting capitilise
You might be asking yourself, “Is painting the exterior of my house worth it?”.
Some people choose not to invest in a paint job, in some circumstances this can stuff your chances at raking in a good buying/selling price for the property.
Can exterior house painting capitilize? The short answer is, YES!
Having fresh, shiny walls and bright eaves, facia and rafters are definitely a great selling point. We understand that sometimes homeowners are on a budget, and you might be considering painting the exterior yourself to save a bit of money.
Painting the exterior of your home can be a very big task, that could potentially be very risky – you may need to secure an extension ladder to the walls and erect scaffolding to get to those higher areas, the level of danger is higher when it comes to painting the exterior compared to the interior.

spray applications i.e. fencing, roofs, and new building works etc.
