External Decorating – House Painting
We were recently instructed by one of our letting agent clients to attend a property in Woodford Halse to make repairs and carry out house painting to the exterior of the house. The property had been neglected and required repairs to the render and wooden window frames before we could start painting.
The property had a few challenges especially to the rear, it had restricted access with a lean to conservatory roof to contend with. Take a look at some of the before photo’s below.
We sheeted up around the property, wire brushed and sanded down the exterior of the house to get rid of any flaking paint in preparation for painting as well as making cement repairs to the render. Once completed we used a Dulux Weathershield Masonry Paint and painted the house with a minimum of two coats, all windows and doors were also rubbed down and painted with a Dulux Ultimate Stain Antique Rosewood in colour. This really sets the property off but the Dulux Weathershield System also protects the wood and masonry with a 10 year guarantee.
Take a look below at some of the during and after pictures below:
The rear had it’s own challenges with limited access, decking and a lean to conservatory. The wall above the conservatory couldn’t be accessed by ladders therefore we used rollers on large extension poles, this saved the landlord money by not hiring and using scaffolding. Once the property was painted we cleaned and tidied around the house and took pictures and sent them to our client for the attention of the landlord.
We also painted all the rear down pipes to the guttering in black paint which finished the property off nicely. If you’re a landlord, property investor or letting agent and you need assistance with decorating then please give us a call on 01327 342594 or 01604 321998 for a free quote.
