Can You Paint Colorbond Fences?

Yes, you can paint a colorbond fence. The best way to do it, which gives an amazing, factory-like finish, is to spray paint over colorbond.

At Fence Makeovers, we specialise in colorbond fence respraying.

How We Paint Colorbond Fences

There is a slight difference between painting new (less than 1 year old) and older colorbond fences.

We make sure the surface is clean and dust free (for new and older fences) and wait for it to dry completely. We treat rust and mould and ensure the fence is ready for painting (older colorbond fences). We also vacuum dirt from the bottom lip of the fence.

We then cover all outdoor plants and furniture to protect from paint. We thoroughly mask the edges of the fence to prevent over-spraying.

For best results and a streak free finish, use an low-pressure, industrial spray gun.

We apply an undercoat (new colorbond fences – older fences don’t require an undercoat, because the surface is weathered).

Lastly, we apply two coats of top of the range, exterior acrylic paint.

What Colour To Choose For Your Colorbond Fence?

Colorbond steel comes in a variety of colours. If you are stuck picking the right colour for your space, read our blog, “Choosing the Right Colour for Your Fence”  here.

Choosing the Right Contractor

When choosing a fence painting expert, always make sure they are experienced and know what they are doing. Fence respraying takes a great skill, you don’t want to end up with your house (or your neighbour’s) sprayed with paint!

Always do your research, read other clients reviews, before you hire a fence spray painter.

What our customers are saying 

I used Fence Makeovers to spray my backyard fence and garage door a “Basalt” colorbond colour. The fence and garage door were originally a creamy colour. This has been one of the best investments I’ve made in my home. My backyard and fence now looks fantastic, modern and like brand new!

Thank you to Bart for your prompt replies over email during the quoting and booking phase, for being clean and prompt with your service on the day of painting and most importantly delivering a finish my wife and I are VERY HAPPY with! We can highly recommend Bart and Fence Makeovers.

David Barrett

Bart was great to deal with and did an awesome job on our horrible beige fence. Has made the garden look completely different and just so much better.

Price was reasonable (he actually did a little more work than originally quoted and didn’t charge extra) and was super reliable – replied to messages quickly and turned up exactly when he said he would, which is not a given when dealing with tradies (in my experience anyway). Thanks so much Bart.
