Northcote Painter – It’s Bill here from Melbourne City Maintenance and I’m at another weatherboard repair and paint job in Northcote. And this house was recently restumped. And as a result, a lot of the weatherboards fell out of place and moved, and some of the damaged weatherboards, the rotten ones were really fell apart.
Basically, what needed to happen was once the house was leveled, and restumped and had settled, the client needed to have the weatherboards repaired, the rotten ones removed the window sills and ledges that were faulty, or rotten, also removed, and then replaced with new.
So we began this job with that in mind, and I’m going to take you around and show you a little bit of what we’ve done. So as you can see, the existing weather boards are in pretty decent condition.
Most of them are, there’s some flaky paint, and there’s some little imperfections that need to be sorted out.
But that’s nothing major. But then further down here, we had several areas where the boards had rotted away and needed to be replaced. So we went about and took the old weather boards off and got rid of those. And then we began to insert the new weatherboards so that we can replace what was damaged, and what was missing.
And we are now getting to that point where we’re finishing off the preparation and removing any flaky paint or any imperfections that again, to not need to be painted over, we’re going to sort out all of these little things that are sticking out of the wall. And we’re going to get to the point where we have repaired with appropriate fillers or the areas that need to be prepared, then we will send them and we will apply again, the right amount of filler for the right result, the right job.
And then we’re going to go about painting everything. And this is the main area that was damaged by the home being restumped and leveled. So we’ve attended to that. And then on the other side, which has had some damage as well, we’ve gone and attended to all the areas that needed sanding, and they needed refilling, we’ve done that on the windows.
We’ve done that on these weatherboards, where we replaced a whole bunch of weatherboards here that needed attention and needed to be removed. So they’re done, they’re ready to go. We’re really close to starting to put paint on this building. And you can see the gutters and the facias have also had some work done, where it’s been a long time since they were painted.
And we had the flaky paint removed, and now we’re going to go about filling gaps and cracks. And then getting that ready for two coats of Brunswick green. And then also a two coats of heritage red on the gutter. The front of the house is the area that needs the majority of the work because it is facing east and it gets the weather all day every day.
And also because it’s the front of the house and we need to make sure that it looks really nice and inviting for people to come home to and there’s not a lot of blemishes left behind that look bad and make the house just feel a little bit rough. And you can see that we’ve done a lot of weatherboard repairs along here as well.
And now that we’ve done the repairs and filled all the gaps and cracks with the appropriate fillers, this place is almost ready to paint. Now as you come along here, the rest of the house looks pretty good. But nonetheless, it’s been a while since it was previously painted.
And all weatherboard homes need a little bit of love and attention every eight to 10 years or so. And here we are the red is starting to go on the first coat on the gutter. And you can see the difference it’s making already and it’s looking really fantastic.
