Then look no further…All you need to know about interior painting

Interior painting requires more skill and care than simply applying paint. Thorough planning and careful preparation is essential to achieve the very best results.
The new generation of acrylic paints are as durable as oil paints but dry at a much quicker rate and are also kinder to the environment. This is especially important in interior painting. The most significant benefit of these new acrylic paints is the reduced odor, which results in minimal disruptions to your family’s lifestyle.

During the interior painting process we apply at least two coats of paint to all surfaces. After choosing a colour you then select a finish. Bathrooms, kitchens and utility rooms are usually painted with a semi-gloss finish as it the most durable and easy to clean, other ceilings of the home are typically painted with a flat finish. Walls can be painted in other finishes. The most popular interior painting flat finish is eggshell, however, special finishes such as pearl or satin can add a unique beauty to any room.

Important considerations in exterior painting

Exterior painting is critical to the finish of any home. Professionally completed exterior painting work can protect the home from weather extremes as well as significantly increase its value.
The most important part of any exterior painting job is careful surface preparation. Taking the necessary preparation time and then using the highest quality paints is crucial for achieving a long lasting paint job.
When considering a proposal from an exterior painting contractor any estimate should allow for the following:

The exterior painting process
Evaluation of existing conditions - through thorough examination of the entire house surface. Potential problems can include peeling paint, open joints or seams, wet or rotted wood, mildew
• Removal of loose, peeling and/or flaking paint
• Priming of bare wood
• Patching of damaged wood
We use an exterior filler compound or, for larger damaged areas, a two-part body filler to repair any holes or damaged wood.
• Gapping
 Old paint often films, peels or flakes- typically near joints or between similar materials. This is because water seeps into cracks and soaks into the wood. We gap all the joints, ensuring a lasting paint job.
• Removal (or careful protection) of light fixtures
• Cleaning the areas affected by exterior painting

Latest news

Valdemar's Painters was recently interviewed by Domain. Read about the latest house painting colour trends.

The big paint job, refreshing the whole house exterior, is a big renovation exercise that operates on an average eight to 12-year cycle, for the good reason that if you're having it done professionally, it costs from $10,000 for a single-storey weatherboard to $40,000 for a large two-storey house. If doing it yourself, the labour costs time - lots of it.

For the past decade, the popular colours for house exteriors have been the earthy, sandy, pale grey and stone hues that have prevailed as generic neutrals in our housing stock.

According to Eva Gluchowski of the long-established painting firm Valdemar's Painters, these tones remain popular.

''Most people are still being quite conservative,'' she says.

But change is seeping into the suburban colour wheel, in the first instance manifesting as amended neutrals - earth colours that aren't too pink or blue - and more definitive greys.
