Working out if you need the house painters back to your home is one of the most commonly asked questions we hear from our residential customers. Which is why our painters in Northern Beaches have put together these fabulous painting tips.

As you know your poor home cops 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 highly damaging.

Do our painters in Sydney need to come back to your Northern Beaches home?

There are so many variants that come into play when deciding whether to get your house painters back to your Northern Beaches property.

But the top 5 things to keep an eye on are:

  1. What’s the condition of your current paintwork?
  2. Did your previous painters do the job properly in the first place, and were the right tools and paint used?
  3. 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.
  4. Location – are you near a beach? If your home’s exposed to saltwater, then your home may need painting more due to salt air and harsh conditions.
  5. What material has been painted? Is it timber, brick, render or something else?
  6.  If it is the exterior of your home, then you need to decide whether you need our Northern Beaches house painters back ASAP.

If you have a timber home and there are signs of cracking or peeling paint, then it’s a sure sign that you need the house painters back to your Northern Beaches 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 wood 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 it’s been exposed, you can start to see signs of damage in the interior of your home too you don’t want that.

If you have damaged timber already, this will need fixing before the exterior is painted, adding extra costs, which is a great incentive to state on top of your home’s maintenance.

Feel free to read 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.
