Stripping paint from a weatherboard home isn’t easy which is why the house painters have put together this step by step case study showing how we do it.
OUR PAINT STRIPPING SERVICE
As paint stripping is a specialist field it requires specialised equipment. This includes encapsulated stripping machines, stripping products and specific vacuum sanders designed to minimise dust. All this costs money, but people stripping paint without these tools are endangering not only themselves but also their clients and neighbours.
Paint removal is a potentially hazardous undertaking – if it is done incorrectly, there can be long-lasting effects. The house painters take this area of the decorating process very seriously. We ensure that both our clients and staff are safe and protected at every stage of the process.
BEFORE PAINT STRIPPING
As you can see on this paint removal project, the existing weatherboards were in very bad condition. With all the flaking and loose paint, the only option was to remove it all and start again.
1. PAINT STRIPPING
Using our 25 years of paint stripping experience we use several tools and methods to safely remove the paint for the weatherboards. All dust and debris are collected using a vacuum system with a HEPA filter and removed from the site and disposed of in accordance with strict waste management systems.
2. VACUUM SANDING
Following stripping the entire surface is sanded using commercial sanders connected to vacuums to help contain the dust for safe disposal.
In the video clip below, we are using our professional series orbital sander connected to a vacuum system.
By using a vacuum, dust and debris are sucked through the sanding head and are captured and contained into bags for easy disposable.
This is just one of the many things the house painters do to help keep our sites clean.
3. PRIMING & FILLING
Once sanded all surfaces are primed with the appropriate product. All metal surfaces receive an iron primer. Once primed the surface is inspected and any imperfections are filled. Once sanded the filler is re-primed.
Two topcoats of colour are applied and the finished result is outstanding. This exterior painting project received the 5 Year Written Master Painters Guarantee and with regular maintenance, this home will enjoy its paintwork looking fresh for many, many years.

Who Are The House Painters?
There are many house painting companies in Auckland, and it is often hard to decide who to choose. The house painters have been painting Auckland for over 20 years and understand that painting is a very personal experience as you are inviting strangers into your home. You want to choose a painting company you can trust.
Many painting companies have shifted away from a personal approach and instead have salespeople to do your quote – often with no painting background. You build trust and rapport with these salespeople, but then once the project starts they are nowhere to be seen as you are handed off to project managers & painters who are there to do a job and have no personal investment. Too often what the salesperson promises to get the sale, and what the painters can achieve are so far apart that after your considerable investment you are left feeling a little disappointed.
This is where the house painters are different. You will be dealing with both Chris and Angela Miller. The owners of the house painters. From the quote to the completed project we will be involved in every stage. We bring to you over 25 years of painting experience, and our number 1 priority is to deliver exceptional customer experience.
