Gates, Fence, Shed Painters in Enfield
We are of the view that to get the best outcome for your property, it is important to take care of other exterior parts of the house so that there is a blend across the board. There is no point having a very lovely house exterior and the gate is looking worn. As part of our mantra of having the capacity to paint anything, we can paint your gates, fence, and sheds.
Whatever material the gate is made of we can paint it – either wood or metal. We don’t paint for the aesthetics only but also to preserve the gates, so they last for a long time. If your gate is made of iron and there are railings as well, then it is essential to paint them to avoid rusting and decay as they are exposed to the weather elements – sun and water. Good preparation of the surface is key, and all loose paint and rust must be removed before you apply a fresh coat of paint. If you have a wooden gate with wooden railings, painting it helps preserve the wood again from the elements. As the weather changes from cold to hot, these extremes mean the wood will expand and contract. Painting is not only easier and neater, but it is also a way of covering the timber surfaces including the underside of the gates where the end-grain of the timber is susceptible to drawing up moisture from the ground.
Most fences are made of wood. As highlighted above, if a fence is not painted then it is susceptible to damage because of its exposure to weather conditions. This may result in them rotting and being covered in mould. The weather also means the wood would contract and expand depending on the time of the season. The most effective way of protecting the wood in your fence is with a good quality paint as it will create a barrier and protect the wood from rot and fungus which damages the fence long term. Speak to our professional painters and they will advise you on the right paint to use and the colour to blend with your property.
If you have a concrete fence, then you can improve the aesthetics of your home by painting it as well. A good quality paint also serves as defence against fungus and prevents those other colours on the fence due to the weather elements. Our team will fill any holes with an exterior filler and apply a first coat and second coat of paint. This should give a good finish and do the trick.
As we acquire more stuff and our homes get smaller, a shed has become an essential for any home. Again, it is important that the colours of the interior and exterior of the home blend together. Our team can guide you on what colours to use and the right finish for your home.
