Question

What preparation do I need to do to paint an old colorbond fence?

Answer

For a high quality finish, the first thing to do is to make sure all the rust, dirt and grime is cleaned off your fence. Check with your local paint store for the right paint and whether the paint requires a primer.

If it is only a small area that needs painting, 'colorbond' spray cans may be bought at most paint shops, colour-matched to your fence.

If it is a large area, sand the area lightly for a good bond. Apply one coat of appropriate primer, and finish it with a High Gloss Enamel.

Spraying is the only recommended method of application.
