Get heads turning by boosting your curb appeal

Freshening up the exterior paintwork of your home can significantly boost your curb appeal, helping your property stand out from the rest of the properties on the street. A well-maintained and visually appealing exterior not only creates a positive first impression but can also add value to your home.

Weatherproof your home exterior

One popular reasons to refresh your home’s exterior paint is to provide protection from the unpredictable British weather. Rain, wind and temperature fluctuations can take a toll on your home’s exterior surfaces. A fresh coat of paint acts as a barrier, preventing moisture from seeping into the walls and causing potential mould damage.

Save time and effort with quality service

Investing in the restoration of exterior paintwork can save you valuable time and money in the long run. High-quality paint, when applied properly, can last for years without showing signs of wear and tear. This means you won’t have to worry about repainting as frequently, which can be costly, saving you time and money to spend elsewhere.

Enhanced safety and premium results

Safety is paramount when dealing with home exterior painting projects, especially when it comes to reaching heights. Our fully trained staff are experienced in working at heights safely. We have the necessary equipment and techniques to ensure the job is done without risking any accidents or injuries. Give yourself peace of mind by hiring professional exterior painters and decorators with safety training to achieve a fresh, updated look for your home.

I came across Marshels website looking for a decorator. They took over wallpapering from another decorator whom I felt was struggling with the job. Marshels contract Manager allocated the job to a very skilled, conscientious, meticulous and considerate staff. A real craftsman. He had to be as the plaster work in my house is not particularly good. The job was done within the timeframe and with great care and consideration for me and my house. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

We recently used Marshels to repaint and decorate the front of our shop. From start to finish the experience has been exceptional! Steve initially came out and quoted within a couple of days of my enquiry. The work was carried out within a couple of weeks of proceed. They worked around our closed hours, meaning it didn't affect our working day. The work carried out was to exceptional standard. Steve stayed in touch throughout the project, finishing with a visit to sign the job off. I can not recommend Marshels enough and I shall be using them in the future for home projects. Thanks again to all

We were very pleased with the work which Marshels did in renovating the exterior of our rendered house, and the highly professional approach which was adopted. Shane and Drew diligently cleared up every day ensuring that there was no mess and kept us informed as to progress. They went the extra mile in addressing other small issues which arose. Adam provided managerial oversight of the work and checked that we were happy with the final result. We would unhesitatingly recommend them and will use them again.

We employed Marshels to help us carry out a complete refurbishment of a rental property we had purchased in Guildford. We knew that there was a lot of work necessary but Jamie and his team proved to be thorough and professional throughout, providing a very detailed quotation, coordinating the various trades necessary (electricians, plumbers, plasterers etc), and finishing the flat to a very good standard. Whenever there were decisions to be made, Marshels were in touch and responded promptly; we really felt we could trust them to do a good job for us throughout. We will certainly be using Marshels for any future works of this nature and I warmly recommend their services.

Marshels have been fantastic! We have had a painter in to paint all our downstairs doors and two more guys in to fix a crack in the front porch. They have all been so friendly and hard working. Steve was great getting a team out quickly for us and Marshels have such a good standard of quality finish, everything looks perfect. Couldn’t recommend more!

What is the best time to paint your house exterior?

The best time to paint your house exterior is typically during spring, summer, or early autumn, depending on your local climate. These seasons generally offer milder temperatures and lower humidity, allowing for sufficient paint drying and curing. When scheduling in your project, we will take into account the weather forecast for your specific area and aim to avoid extreme conditions like heavy rain, high humidity, or scorching heat.

Can you paint over old paint?

Yes, you can paint over old paint on your house exterior. You should ensure your surface is clean, scrape loose any peeling paint, and use a compatible paint type. We always recommend primer when undergoing colour changes or painting over an old or poor paint finish.

If you are unsure of what is required for your property, consult with one of our professional house painters and they will able be provide any relevant guidance.

What do you need to do before painting your house exterior?

We’d recommend starting by repairing, cleaning, and meticulously priming the surface of your exterior walls. Fortunately, this isn’t a burden you need to shoulder alone, as it is an integral part of our comprehensive service package. We can’t stress enough the significance of this preparatory phase, as adequate preparation ensures a clean canvas for the painting process, setting the stage for a flawless and enduring finish.

How often should the exterior of your house be painted?

The frequency can vary largely based on the climate and paint quality. Typically, our specialists recommend a fresh coat of paint every 5 to 10 years, but harsh climates may require repainting every 3 to 5 years. Regular inspections are essential to identify signs of peeling or fading paint, signalling the need for maintenance.

This range can vary depending on the materials that have been used. With Stucco we recommend every 5-6 years, wood sliding every 3-7 years and brick every 15 – 20 years.
