Glen Eden West Auckland Weatherboard house windows exterior painting work to keep the window frames well maintained. In year 2018 we have more windows exterior painting only, not the whole house but only the window frames exterior. In August to September we completed another 4 window frames exterior painting only in West Auckland. These houses are managed by property management companies. The exterior painting is part of the on going house maintenance.
The basic procedure of our exterior windows painting is peeling paint stripping, sanding, primer, some times oil based primer. We normally use enamel semi gloss interior and exterior general paint. We found it’s much easier if we can use the regular weathershield Dulux exterior paint of semi gloss which is doing more protection than enamel paint. However, most people believe that window frames should be only painted by enamel, gloss or semi gloss. We follow customer instructions anyway.
All windows were eased and hinges repaired by a partner carpenter we introduced to the property management company.
The rotten timber or corners are normal. For major parts we use builder’s filler. Smaller crackings and gaps we use contract filler only. Sanding through once they are dry before 1stepprep Dulux ultimate primer.
