Timber surfaces exposed to certain weather conditions can bring about the deterioration of painted substrates. Exposure to constant sun and rain can give rise to peeling paint as well as weathered and rotted timber. Regular exterior painting and maintenance will help reduce the decline in your timber surfaces.
Scope of Work
The exterior painting required the preparation and painting of two windows and a sliding door to the rear of this home.
The preparation of the windows included;
- Removal of flaking paint
- Filling all nail holes along timber beading
- Lightly sanding all woodwork to windows and door
- Washing all timber surfaces to remove chalkiness, dust, dirt and grease
- Caulking any gaps along window joins
- Spot priming all repaired timber
The colour chosen by the client was Dulux Antique White USA. Two coats were applied to all surfaces using Dulux Weathershield in low sheen.
Below are pictures of the completed windows.
The painting of the rear windows was completed over a two day period and this paint work was part of a larger project which originally included the painting of a deck. With a small amount of preparation required, the painted windows will be protected from all weather conditions and it will also complement the rear Merbau deck.
