Job description: Extensive house painting restoration of a stunning Hampton-style weatherboard property at Avalon.
We transformed this two-storey property from a tired, weather-beaten dark blue colour to a stylish, pure white Hampton-style home worthy of a magazine cover shoot (seriously, it’s soon to be featured in Vogue!).
Exterior house painting
The first step in the restoration process was to prepare and make any repairs the exterior weatherboards. Not only does this create a cleaner aesthetic but, importantly, it helps preserve the weatherboards and increases their longevity.
First we used our high pressure house cleaning and other equipment to wash down and clean all exterior surfaces. Next, all gaps and imperfections in the timberwork were filled and any bare weatherboards and timberwork that had been replaced were primed. The dark blue paintwork required three coats of Taubmans Endure exterior paint in Porter’s Snow White, a cool white colour.
The backyard timber studio received the same treatments as above.
Aluminium window painting
The original mission brown aluminium windows were cleaned and etch primed. These were then painted black.
We high-pressure cleaned the existing Colorbond roof. Our expert roof painters then sprayed it Colorbond Monument, a stylish and contemporary dark grey colour.
New timber fences had been erected. These needed to be primed and painted using weather resistant that protects the timber and requires very little maintenance for many years to come. The internal fences were painted Porter’s Snow White, the same colour used on all exterior surfaces. The outside was painted black.
Internal house painting
Due to a recent internal renovation, we needed to prepare all the bare timber and Gyprock areas using primers and sealers. All areas then received multiple coats in Porter’s Snow White.
Many existing walls throughout the internal rooms needed to be repaired and repainted, also in Porter’s Snow White.

Scott is an expert when it comes to awkward and difficult paint jobs. Stairs, cathedral ceilings and hard-to-reach areas that other painters dismiss as “too hard” (or over-quote because they don’t really want the job) are something the ASAP team relish.
