Coorparoo, Brisbane: 2010 Queenslander Restoration Works
McAuliffe Painting has been restoring and repainting heritage homes for many years. Our reputation as a specialist painter of Queenslander homes means that many of the most stunning Queenslander colour palettes you see throughout the city of Brisbane are our own work. For the Coorparoo contract, the owner asked us to restore the original casement or sash windows. We were more than happy to oblige; these types of residence are Brisbane landmarks and the more we can keep them looking as they were when they were first constructed, the happier we are. This is just one of the reasons why you can put your trust in McAuliffe Painting when restoring your home to its former glory.
Before being able to commence with painting, our professional paint removal service in Brisbane had a lot of work to do. We first needed to completely remove the cracking, peeling and flaking coating. Old paintwork was removed by sanding, so before this we made sure the working area was closed off using tarpaulins and extra thickness plastic sheeting. We used other decorating dust-minimisation techniques too, which was much appreciated by the residents, especially when they took and collected the kids to and from school on the opposite side of the street.
This extremely rewarding job involved the following tasks:
- Containment of dust fallout and debris using tarps and enclosures and dustless sanding equipment
- Full removal (sanding) of failing paint from the front and two sides of the home
- Complete repaint of sanded sections of home
- Restoration of casement windows which had been removed by the owner and were re-installed at a later date
