Gates, Fence, Shed Painters in Portsmouth
The exterior of your house contributes to its kerb appeal. it is important to take care of other exterior aspects of the house so that there is a blend across the board. There is no point having a very lovely house exterior and worn looking gate. As we paint anything and everything, we can paint your gates, fence, and sheds.
We paint both metal and wood gates. We don’t paint for the aesthetics only but also to preserve the gates, so they last longer. For gates made of iron with railings, it is crucial to paint them to avoid rust and decay as they are consistently exposed to the weather elements. Good preparation of the surface is key, and all loose paint and rust must be taken off before you apply a fresh coat of paint. For wooden gates with wooden railings, painting it helps preserve the wood again from the elements. As the weather changes from one extreme to another wood will expand and contract. Painting covers the timber surfaces including the underside of the gates where the end-grain of the timber is susceptible to drawing up moisture from the ground.
If a fence is not painted, then it is susceptible to damage due to weather exposure which may result in rotting and mould. The weather also means the wood would contract and expand depending on the time of the season. The most effective way of protecting the wood in your fence is painting with a good quality paint. Painting creates a barrier and protects the wood from rot and fungus that damages the fence long term. Speak to our professional painters and they can advise you on the right paint to use and the colour to blend with your property.
Painting concrete fences can improve the aesthetics of your home as well. Good quality paint also serves as defence against fungus and prevents other colours on the fence from weather elements. We will fill any holes with an exterior filler and apply a first coat and second coat of paint. This should give a good finish and do the trick.
Sheds have become an essential asset for any home as we continue to seek more living space. If we work on your exterior walls, gates, or fence, we always recommend you paint the shed if you have one. Our team can guide you on what colours to use and the right finish for your home.
