    Paint Stripped Weatherboards

    How We Strip Paint From A Weatherboard Home

    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.


    The house painters are highly skilled & experienced paint strippers. We use a combination of paint stripping methods tailored to the individual needs of each exterior painting project.

    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.

    Paint Removal


    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.

    Stripped Paint From Weatherboards


    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.

    Priming & Filling After Paint Removal


    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  with regular maintenance will enjoy its paintwork looking fresh for many, many years.

    This team was professional and responsive throughout the week of painting. The tall timber fence posed problems being right beside the footpath and a bus stop but the job was done beautifully, creating a good first impression of the property.. The back deck area was in a bad state of repair, and this was taken right back to the original wood weatherboards to prepare for painting. The old French doors were also in a bad way, and these were sanded , puttied, and brought back to their best. With a 100 year old place no detail was spared bringing this elevated deck area back to its former glory.

    From the first day of quote we had a 'gut feeling' that we had chosen the right company to paint our house. The time and effort put into the preparation was amazing. Workmanship was certainly Gold Medal standard. We were surprised how our 30 year old tired looking house was transformed into a house you can look at in awe. Thank you once again Angela, Chris and Tyson.

    I can’t rate Chris, Angela, Gary and Tyson highly enough. They are so professional, polite, accommodating and the quality of work is absolutely amazing – we were so impressed with their attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble and the result is stunning. We have renovated our house from top to bottom and used lots of different tradies over the last three years but The Painters really stood out to us. I can’t recommend them enough. We are so pleased with the end result – they have transformed a tired 70’s house into something that looks a bit more modern of which we are so grateful and appreciative.

    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 25 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 Chris Miller. The owner of the house painters. From the quote to the completed project Chris will be involved in every stage. Chris brings to you over 25 years of painting experience, and his number 1 priority is to deliver exceptional customer experience.
