Painted timber weatherboards – faded paint finish


Weathering, UV light exposure – darker colours are more prone to fading 


  • Wash the walls thoroughly with a soft brush and mild detergent to remove dirt and other contaminants. Rinse with clean water and leave to dry.

  • Do not use a waterblaster on weatherboard walls – it can lead to long-term damage if it forces water through gaps into the wall assembly.

  • Sand the existing surface, smooth rough edges and remove sharp corners from boards. Brush off all the dust after sanding to leave a clean surface.

  • Repaint with at least two coats of high-gloss or semi-gloss acrylic paint. When applying paint, follow the recommendations in our maintenance guide for painting.
