If you’re lucky enough to live in one of the very best cities in Australia, this article is for you. As experienced Brisbane house painters, we have a whole host of tips specific to the area’s climate and house styles.
So, if you’re embarking on a painting project in Brisbane or surrounds, take note. Here are a few of our top tips.
Check the weather
The climate in Brisbane and SEQ is, well, extreme. One minute it’s 35 degrees and sunny, the next it’s pouring with rain, even flooding!
Check out the articles linked above for some guidance. Research and preparation is an essential part of any home improvement project.
Keep it light and bright
Brisbane is home to many stunning, historic ‘Queenslander’ style properties. With balconies, unique details, and traditional trimmings, Queenslander homes tend to look best with a light, bright colour scheme.
What’s more, keeping things fresh and neutral will make your home feel bigger and cooler, giving you the airy feel you want throughout the long, warm summer season.

Protect your paint
As we mentioned above, Brisbane boasts a pretty extreme climate – for most of the year, 30 degrees or warmer is the norm. Tropical downpours are also common.
If your home is exposed to direct sunlight or corrosive weather conditions for extended periods of time, it’s important to take the proper precautions. We suggest using specially formulated, weather-resistant exterior paints. These will lock-in colour and give you a smooth, professional finish for years to come.
Make the most of your outdoor space
Our summers last six months plus – make the most of it by doing up your outdoor space.
Painting your deck is an effective way to transform your outdoor space. However, if you plan on doing this yourself, ensure you use all the right primers and painting techniques. Timber can be incredibly absorbent, and may soak up all the paint you apply. You’ll also need to repair and water and weather damage before painting.
