Painting a colorbond fence
Can you paint colorbond fences?
We often get asked if Colorbond fence can be painted. The answer is, yes, you can paint a colorbond fence. At Fence Makeovers we specialise in Colorbond fence respraying.
How We Paint Colorbond Fences
The best way to do it, which gives an amazing, factory-like finish, is to spray paint over colorbond. There is a slight difference between painting new (less than 5 years 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 (colorbond fences up to 5 years old – older fences don’t require an undercoat, because the surface is weathered).
Lastly, we apply two coats of top of the range, exterior 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.
