These decks were suffering the harsh weather conditions as well as the vicinity of the salty water. The team at Perfetto Painting and Decorating was able to ‘rescue’ the timber before a major intervention was needed to restore the beauty of the wooden decks.

It is highly recommended that all clients check the conditions of their decks at least once every six months. Spotting the early signs of deterioration becomes critical so that a cheaper treatment including washing up and recoating is enough to maintain the timber alive.

The paint used in this project was Cabot Deck and Exterior Stain in a grey wash finish, as the client wanted to keep the beach feeling of the house.

Project year: 2015


From the very first call, Perfetto Painting was the answer to our renovation prayers. We live on the Northern Beaches, and houses up here face very particular challenges of rapid weathering from the salt air – paint fades fast, window frames, guttering and anything metal rusts and paint peel with lots of rain and harsh winds. When renovating our house, we were looking for paint solutions which could address all these issues. And with two small children, we also needed to be mindful of our budget. Antonio and his team really understood the challenges of the job and proposed fantastic paint and treatment solutions for us, which we knew would last. Most importantly, they were reasonably priced and fitted right in with our budget. The Perfetto Painting team arrived every day on time, and they were always professional, friendly and tidy. The paint finishes are simply perfect the inside and out and at every stage of the process, they kept me informed of how it was progressing. The job was finished on time and on budget. We just knew we were in safe and talented hands, every step of the way.
