Anyone that has seen a Queenslander property knows that this structure is very different from all modern and most older structures as well. These properties have stunning architectural elements, are built using timber and elaborate iron features and sport large verandas and porches. While these buildings look unique and have stood the test of time, they require a significant amount of maintenance and care.
Some useful tips
The expert painters at Attentive Painting & Decorating have put together pointers you can follow to maintain the beauty and integrity of your Queenslander property:
- If you notice that the paint is flaking, don’t defer getting this problem fixed. The delay will cause the paint to continue peeling even more and that will affect the appearance of the overall structure.
- When you are painting your Queenslander property, make it a point to remove the older coat of paint completely before applying the next one. A special paint thinner would have to be used to remove the older paint after which the surfaces would have to be sanded and painted carefully using a suitable paint.
- As part of the maintenance plan, check the walls and other wooden features for the presence of mould. This build-up can become health risk and will affect the timber features permanently.
