Queenslander properties are known for their classic, unique architecture. These impressive houses are a remnant of the colonial ages and now carry a heritage structure status- this means you can’t make any structural changes to the structure and any repair work will also have to be conducted only after written permission from the local council.
Queenslander maintenance- useful tips
These buildings are a combination of wood and iron and in most instances; the wooden surfaces are painted rather than polished. This lends the structure a very quaint and classic look. The large porches and verandas add to its appeal as well. But maintaining these properties can be a herculean task and there are certain things that have to be kept in view while doing so: The experts at Attentive Painting & Decorating have put together these tips to help maintain your Queenslander property appropriately:
- If you see signs of flaking paint, do not delay in fixing the problem as that will only cause more peeling which will affect the appearance of the structure.
- While painting your Queenslander property, make sure that the older coat of paint is completely removed before the new application. This will ensure the paint adheres well to the surface and doesn’t peel off quickly.
- The surface will have to be sanded and primed well before the paint is applied.
- Inspect the walls and other wooden features for the incidence of mould as this can impact the timber permanently. Mould spores in the air also spread across the indoor spaces and can pose a health risk.
