Professional paintwork creates a great impact, whether your home is to take on a new appearance, be restored or maintained, or has just been built. Painter’s works with professional tradesmen and premium products to achieve the look you desire for a room or an entire home.

Exterior House Painting Auckland is a very demanding task and one that you don't want to do often. To make sure that your paint job last for years to come, proper surface preparation is essential. If you decide to tackle this project yourself, be ready to devote as much time on the prep work as you do on actually painting your home.

The first step in preparing your home for painting is to make sure that you have a clean surface. Without properly cleaning away all the dirt, grime or mildew your paint will not properly bond to the surface and will cause paint failure in a short time. The best ways to properly clean your home is to use a pressure washer that has a chemical injector. Using a mixture of common bleach along with a cleaning detergent such as TSP (tri sodium phosphate), apply the cleaning agent through the chemical injector on your pressure washer and allow it to set on the surface for about 10 minutes. After allowing the detergent time to work, spray the surface off with clean water using your pressure washer, keeping the nozzle of the pressure washer moving at a steady pace so that you will not damage your siding. Make sure that you wash all of your siding, eaves and guttering but be careful around your windows because the direct stream from the pressure washer can easily break the glass.

Next, if you have any loose or flaking paint then you will need to remove the paint using a paint scraper or a stiff putty knife. Auckland Painters will help you in all the problems that you are facing. Before you begin to scrape, you will need to cover all shrubs, driveways, sidewalks or any other areas beneath where you will be scraping with drop cloths or a tarp to help catch the paint chips as you scrape. Scrape away all peeling or loose paint keeping a steady pressure on the paint scraper so that you do not damage or gouge the surface. Be sure to always wear a dust mask and eye protection when you are scraping. After thoroughly scraping away all loose paint, you will then need to prime any bare wood. You should then caulk all open joints, cracks and around all windows and doors using a good exterior grade caulk.

Roof Painting Auckland can restore your home's roof to its former glory. Using the correct preparation techniques and a range of professional roof painting Auckland products experts can restore tile roofs, corrugated iron roofs and colour steel roofs.

The roof painting Auckland is one of the home maintenance rituals that you must do after a few years, especially if you are living in some high rain or wind area like beach front. The roof paint needs to be reliable to stay sturdy in the strong sun and bad weather. Everyone is noticing the arrival of the dead cheap brands in market often given at almost half the rate you might have paid before, are they any good? Well the answer is simple; you get what you pay for. If you buy some non reliable brand the results can be somewhat compromise too.

The exact color match after applying and the staying power can only be found in the reliable paint brands.

Before getting down to choosing the metal roof colors, there is a need to know about the pre-treatment required. This would guarantee that the roof would have enough protection against rust. Homeowners should go out of their way to familiarize themselves with the options they have. There would be no use in having the roof painted if the metal would only be damaged. People know that the roof paint is not like other kinds of paint most especially because the roof would be exposed to extreme weather conditions.

Once the primer has the roof sealed, it is time to decide on the color of the roofing. The shade should undoubtedly be based on the exterior look of the house. The paint of the exterior walls as well as the different fixtures that can be seen from the façade should all be considered.
