    Preparing for winter with DIY painting

    A fresh coat of paint on a house can make all the difference to not only the appearance, but also the longevity of the building itself.

    Getting that new colour onto your home, or even revitalising an old one, can be expensive when hired help is brought in. That's why here at Kennards Hire, we're encouraging you to get outside and do some DIY painting yourself before the harsh winter months come. New paint will breathe life into the aesthetic of your house from the street and also keep out the elements that might damage your precious foundations.

    It's easier than you think

    While a complete overhaul of the front of your house might seem like a huge undertaking, it doesn't have to take weeks and weeks to complete. Kennards Hire has the tools to get it done quickly and cleanly. If you take some care, it'll be difficult to tell you haven't had it done professionally.

    All you need is an airless paint sprayer - high pressures allow for large volumes of paint to be atomised without the need for compressed air, while the delivery system allows only minimal over-spraying.

    Getting higher up onto your property will require a 2.4-metre aluminium trestle, which will give you sufficient space to manoeuvre and access the trickier parts of your home more efficiently and safely.

    But why paint?

    If your house paint is flaking or peeling away, it's definitely time to start again.

    Paint is what protects parts of your house or flat from being affected by the elements. While the paint is still sound in terms of the structure and coating, it will help to stop water and sun damage, while also preventing the build-up of mould and mildew. Once these problems get rooted into your home, they can really take away from the integrity of your home, and they don't exactly look appealing either.

    If your house paint is flaking or peeling away, it's definitely time to start again. If you fancy a colour change, it certainly can't hurt to get onto it as soon as you can - especially before the harsher winter weather sets in.

    According to Home Improvement Pages Australia, a professional painter could charge up to $20,000 to tackle the exterior of your house. If that seems like more than you're willing to pay, why not do the job yourself? Kennards Hire's equipment can make the whole process easy and efficient. The only thing you need to bring to the table is motivation.

    Get in touch with Kennards Hire today and get onto that fresh exterior coat before winter arrives.
