Decorating A Period Barn Conversion

Heritage decorators in essex

GSD Painting and Decorating decorated a period barn conversion in a conservation area in Bocking, Essex. Our customers had brought the property from a local builder three years ago and were looking for a high-quality finish that would both protect their home for maintenance issues and present it in the best possible light in the conservation area that it resides in.

With this period barn property being in a conservation area GS Decorating undertook careful consultation with the client to ensure the correct products and colours were used when decorating to ensure the property was in keeping with the area code.

The house was a mixture of weathered board, masonry and oak beams, all in average condition. We started by washing down all of the surfaces to remove all the grease, dirt, blown masonry and weathered wood.

We then proceeded to give full sand down, fill and prep of all cracks and joints to give a solid finish before painting and decorating the property.

To paint the exterior weatherboard we used Bedec Barn Paint which we find to be amazingly durable paint and is great to apply, giving our customers long-lasting results. We recommend you redecorate a period property of this nature every five years to ensure you never have any nasty surprises.

We then painted the masonry of the property in using the Dulux Weathershield range which again we find to be of the highest quality when decorating a property of this nature.

Finally, we used oil to decorate the eves and a Dulux satin and gloss on the windows and doors before leaving a happy customer with their newly painted and decorated barn.
