Painting Asbestos Fence

Hi there

Thanks for stopping by. At Fence Makeovers we specialise in fence respraying. We paint all types of fences and today we would like to answer some questions that we get asked daily.

QUESTION: CAN ASBESTOS FENCE BE PAINTED?

Asbestos fences are very common in WA. They are also one of the ugliest fences on the planet! Its default colour is grey – this fence catches dust and dirt easily. Plus, its fibres are deadly…

Everyone hates the colour of asbestos. But, can asbestos fence be painted? The answer is YES, yes it can. What’s more, painting asbestos fence has benefits!

WHY IT IS GOOD TO HAVE ASBESTOS FENCE PAINTED:

SAFETY REASONS: The layer of paint seals the asbestos fibres, stopping them from flying away. Painting asbestos fence makes it safer for your family!

AESTHETIC REASONS: Being able to paint over ghastly asbestos grey means you get to choose any colour you want!  Picking  a dark colour is a great choice –  the difference is simply incredible!

HOW DO WE DO IT?

At Fence Makeovers we specialise exclusively in fence respraying. We are experts in spray painting technique. Spray painting means the asbestos fence is not touched by a brush, it’s not scrubbed. The paint is gently sprayed on the surface of a fence, sealing asbestos in and making it safer.

We use two-coating system and our paint of choice is Dulux Weathershield. The whole project takes 1-2 days, depending on weather conditions.
