Top 5 tips | Do I need the house painters back | Northern Beaches
Working out if you need the painters back to your Northern Beaches home is one of the most commonly asked questions we hear from our residential customers. Your poor home does really cop it from all angles. The interior has your family to contend with whether it be young children, teenagers or the four-legged members of your family. Then the exterior of your home needs to battle the elements. And if you’re in the North Shore and Northern Beaches area of Sydney the sun is blistering and salt is extremely damaging.
Do the painters need to come back to YOUR North shore HOME?
There are so many variants that come into play when deciding whether to get your house painters back to your North Shore or Northern Beaches property. It can change depending on whether it’s the interior of your home or the exterior of your home too. But the top 5 things to keep an eye on are:
- What’s the condition of your current paintwork?
- Did your previous painters do the job properly in the first place and were the right tools and paint used?
- Is it the interior or exterior of your home? Depending on which can have some disastrous effects if left unrepaired and you haven’t got the painters back on time.
- Location – are you near a beach? If your home is exposed to salt water then your home may need painting more due to salt air and harsh conditions.
- What material has been painted? Is it timber, brick, render or something else?
If it is the exterior of your home then you need to decide whether you need the house painters back to your Northern Beaches property ASAP. If you have a timber home and you have signs of cracking or peeling paint then it’s a sure sign that you need the house painters back to your home sooner rather than later. Once the paint starts peeling and cracking the timber becomes exposed to the weather and you don’t want the timber exposed and damaged. Even if you are in the sunny Northern Beaches area we still get rain and if it is left exposed then depending on how long for you can start to see signs of damage in the interior of your home too and you don’t want that.
If you do have damaged timber already then this will need fixing before the exterior is painted which adds on some extra costs too so it’s best to stay on top of things for the condition of your home and your bank balance.
Feel free to have a read of one of our previous blog posts Is it time to get the house painters back? which goes into more detail on the things to look out for.
What if the previous painters haven’t done the job right?
If the previous house painters haven’t done the job properly on your Northern Beaches home then don’t despair. Everything is fixable and we have over 30 years of experience to make sure the job is done right. We will just need to evaluate what has been done, what was used and how bad the state of your home is and this will help us determine what we need to do to return your home to all its glory again.
You can rest assured that we use the right tools and paint for the job. We, in fact, use the Taubmans Endure range for the exterior of most homes and buildings we paint. It has superior weather protection, resists mould and mildew and is UV resistant which is very important for our Australian climate.
