How can the cost of painting a Weatherboard house vary?

Weatherboard homes come in many shapes and sizes, so it is important to spend extra time preparing them. Weatherboard homeowners tend to neglect their homes for too long, often leaving them without any painting or maintenance. Depending on the condition of the timber, this can lead to a significant increase in the cost of the home. Many times, weatherboard homes will require timber repairs by carpenters in order to replace timber rot.

There are many factors that can affect the cost of repainting your home’s weatherboard.

  • How much preparation is necessary?
  • No matter if it’s one or two stories high,
  • What is the access? Do you need scaffolding?
  • Does it require timber rot/wood rot repairs?
  • What number of colours will you use? This can affect the price.
  • Are you able to add any of these extras? Front Fence, Garage, Carport, Pergola?

Is it more expensive depending on the colour?

Yes. Yes. However, using more colours can result in a higher price due to the extra time required to apply them and the additional paint cost. An extra coat might be necessary if you’re going over a dark colour with a lighter one.

Can I paint my Weatherboard home myself?

You can paint, but it is important to remember that paints may not last if they aren’t properly prepared. Do some research into the best practices for exterior preparation.

You should also ensure that you have the right safety equipment when working at heights. A scaffold, harness or other machinery may be required. You may not be able to use these tools unless you have been trained or licensed.
