Factors to consider before repainting your Queenslander house

Paying attention to intricate details

Every section of your Queenslander home took thought and careful attention to detail when it was constructed. Why give it anything less now that you’ve decided to repaint & restore it to its former glory? Queenslander restoration is not the same as maintaining other homes, because these houses are older, feature more intricate detailing, and require an understanding of their historical characteristics and associated regulations.

To revive the character of a Queenslander home, you need a team of professional painters that understand high-quality workmanship. Exterior home painting requires a certain level of experience, because regular painting skills aren’t equivalent to professional Queenslander painting. These homes deserve the best restoration you can offer, which not only maintains their value, but also their splendour. Queenslander painting is available if you’re ready to perform a full restoration of your Queenslander home. Prime Building Painters is here to advise you on the best way to repair, restore, and repaint a Queenslander home the correct way.  Depending on your area, your property may be subject to government regulations to restore Queenslander homes, so only choose a team that understands this process thoroughly.

Opting for professional Queenslander painting and restoration Brisbane

Choose a team that’s meticulous about detail

There are many factors to consider when working on a Queenslander home, which is why Prime Building Painters has taken every step to cover them all. Not only do we understand the Brisbane City Council restrictions on Queenslander painting Brisbane, but we’ve got years of experience carrying them out. 

With countless Queenslander home restorations under our belt, Prime Building Painters is your best option for restoring the character of any heritage building. We’re intricately familiar with Queenslander timber repairs, roof trellis refurbishment, and high-quality plastering. Before painting can begin, a full restoration survey needs to be conducted. We’re here to help you every step of the way. 

Queenslander restoration is a process that requires meticulous attention to detail. Sanding down rough edges, washing off dirt & grime, and repairing damaged plaster are just some of the details we attend to during the restoration project. We’re also adept at repairing weatherboards, fences, pillars, and other timber-based components that tend to experience wear and tear over decades of climate exposure. 

Also remember that most Queenslanders are tall buildings, requiring the right equipment for hard-to-reach heights. Prime Building Painters comes fully equipped to ensure that every area of your home is repaired and protected from the harsh Brisbane elements. Not only that, but our skills and experience allow us to navigate and address common issues facing the restoration of heritage and character buildings.

Many of these homes have also been painted a long time ago, meaning they contain lead paint. Lead paint removal is a complicated process, one we’ve accomplished hundreds of times in the past. Fully ensured and properly equipped to remove lead paint, Prime Building Painters is highly competent at giving your Queenslander home a clean slate, ready for a new paint finish and a fresh start for you and your family. With every Queenslander restoration we complete, Prime Building Painters also offers you a free colour consultation. After all, your Queenslander will be needing a fresh coat of paint. Not only do we offer a premium base undercoat as part of a new home interior painting job, but we’ll advise you on the best colours to opt for too.

  • How do you remove lead paint safely?

    Safety is the top priority at Prime Building Painters when it comes to removing lead-based paints from residential and commercial properties. We understand the potential health hazards associated with lead exposure, which is why we have implemented stringent protocols and specialized techniques to ensure a safe and responsible lead abatement process.

    Our team of experienced professionals will undertake an assessment of the lead paint at your property and associated risks to determine the most appropriate removal method, which may include paint stripping, wet sanding or HEPA vacuuming. Regardless of the chosen method, our team adheres to strict safety protocols including the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), the implementation of containment measures to prevent the spread of lead particles, and environmentally-responsible lead disposal practices.

  • Do I need to prepare my home for the painters?

    You can greatly assist our painting team by undertaking a few steps to prepare your house for painting. These include:

    • Removing objects such as pictures, mirrors, curtains and wall hangings from the walls
    • Moving large items and pieces of furniture to the middle of the room
    • Informing us if you have any pets on the property. This will assist us with keeping both your pets protected and contained, as well as plan for the safety of our team.

    Please inform our team who will be happy to assist with preparation if you require. However, please note that extra charges may apply if this exceeds the initially stated preparation time.

We take immense pride in the quality of our work and the expertise of our Prime Building Painters team.  As a testament to our commitment to excellence, we offer a 5-Year Workmanship Guarantee, providing you with unparalleled peace of mind and confidence in our services.

    This Guarantee ensures that the coating system applied by our skilled painters will not blister, flake, or peel as a result of faulty surface preparation or application for a minimum of five years.

  • How long does it take to paint a house interior?

    We usually allow around one week for our professional painters to prepare, paint and finish an interior paint job for a 3 bedroom home. This timeframe may be shorter or longer depending on the number and size of rooms being painted, the condition of the walls and other paint surfaces requiring preparation, the level of complexity, ease of access, and the type of paint and finishes chosen, among other factors. 

  • How long does it take to paint a Queenslander house?

    Painting a traditional Queenslander home can take longer than a standard brick home due to its intricate architecture and the additional attention, preparation, and expertise required. 

    As a general guide, our experienced painters can usually complete a Queenslander painting and restoration project within around 2-4 weeks. However, this timeframe will naturally depend upon the size, condition, and complexity of the property. Larger Queenslander houses or those that require more extensive restoration and preparation can potentially range from 4 to 8 weeks’ duration.
    Please don’t hesitate to get in contact with our friendly team who will be happy to assess your Queenslander and provide a timeframe estimate for the paint job based on your property’s requirements.

  • How long does it take to paint the exterior of a house?

    The time taken to complete an exterior house painting project can vary considerably based on the condition and requirements of your individual property. 

    For a typical Brisbane brick or weatherboard home, our experienced team can complete the exterior painting within a timeframe of 1 to 2 weeks, provided minimal preparation is required. However, if your home requires more extensive preparation work, such as addressing any surface imperfections or repairing damaged areas, the timeline may extend slightly.

    Larger, more intricate homes, such as the iconic Queenslander-style properties, typically require a more substantial investment of time. In these cases, our team may need 2 to 4 weeks to ensure a thorough and meticulous process, from preparation to the final coats of paint.

    During our initial consultation and on-site assessment, our experts will carefully evaluate your home’s unique characteristics, including its size, architectural style, and the condition of the existing surfaces which will enable us to provide you with a more accurate time estimate as part of the quotation process. We aim to balance the need for efficiency with our commitment to delivering exceptional results so you can plan accordingly.

  • How much does it cost to paint the interior of a house or unit in Brisbane?

    The cost for interior painting of a house or unit will vary based on factors such as the type of home, number of rooms being painted, the type of paint and finishes selected, the condition of the walls and other surfaces, accessibility, and any additional preparation work required. 

    The prices below are offered as a general guide. It’s always best to consult with Prime Building Painters to obtain an accurate and free quote based on your specific project requirements.

    • An average low-set Brisbane home might range from around $4000 – $8000, depending on the number and size of the rooms being painted
    • Painting the interior of a unit will typically cost around $2500 – $7000, again depending upon the number of bedrooms
    • For timber homes, you can expect to pay higher for interior painting due to the greater level of complexity and detail involved in painting walls, frames, windows and skirtings etc. Costs can average around $10,000, but may be lower or higher depending on size and other factors listed above.
