Brooke Street Exterior Repaint


Photography is more than just perfectly sharp, correctly framed compositions, meant to go viral and get tons of likes on your Facebook or Instagram accounts. Photography is about emotions, meaning, moments and people, real simple people, who feel, dream, worry and hope. Therefore, while we, as photographers (at least most of us) strive for perfection, and tent to remove and delete blurry photos, weird frames from the raw wedding gallery, that was just exported to your laptop - THOSE are the images that sometimes matter the most to our clients. You see, our clients care about these small and big reminders of how that day went, how they felt at a particular moment, who was there for them. If you haven't already, I urge you to embrace the blurriness, the imperfection, it's what life is all formed of.

Two units, one stunning colour scheme by Painting by Josh.

It doesn’t take much work to create a stunning contrast between brick, soffits and metal fixtures! I’m a huge fan of Dulux Weathershield tinted to Night Sky to complete a finish like this.

Prep: all steel scraped, sanded – rust areas (rust conversion applied initally). All bare timber coat of total prep and sand. Two coats of top coat (gutters using Weathershield).

Low sheen on walls, semi-gloss for nightsky and low sheen for soffits..

Achieving a great finish is all in the preparation. All substrates were thoroughly scraped and sanded – with all rust areas treated with premium products. Dulux Professional Total Prep primer was applied to all bare timber.

For the external cladding, Dulux Weathershield low sheen was applied, followed by semi-gloss tinted to Night Sky for gutters and railing. Finally, Weathershield low sheen was applied for the soffits.

Impressed with the final result? If you need a transformation – feel free to get in touch with Josh!
