How to Paint your Weatherboard House

While Weatherboard Houses may be popular with buyers, it's important to always make sure that the paint work is up to scratch.

Charlie Albone offers his top tips for presenting the best weatherboard house in the street!

  • While paint is a cost effective way of keeping your home looking good, the amount of paint you will need can be difficult to work out. Using the Taubman's Paint Planner will help this process.
  • You can paint your weatherboard any colour you like, but keep in mind your home's surroundings and remember that some colour combinations work better than others.
  • The colour you choose will depend on where you live. In the suburbs warm neutrals like this Taupe Stone matched with the dark trims work really well.
  • Painting weatherboards with a brush will offer better coverage. The key is not to over load your brush with too much paint to avoid running and dripping.
  • If your paint a weatherboard and brick property the trick to matching the paint is to take one of the tones of the brick for your main colour choice.

So if your property is looking a bit tired and old, think about giving it a good paint job - it's easy enough to do it yourself!
