Weatherboard Repairs Solutions
Weatherboards are timber, and they can eventually fall victim to the usual problems that plague timber. Dry rot, wet rot, swelling, warping, paint flaking and more are all potential problems that your weatherboards may face. Even though weatherboards are primed and treated to ensure a long lasting lifespan, over time and with full exposure to Australian conditions the timber will still degrade.
The weatherboard services that we offer include:
By sanding back, treating and painting your weatherboards, you can make old weatherboards look new again. This service is relatively inexpensive and can completely change the appearance of your home.
Hole and Crack Patching and Repairs
If you’ve got holes and cracks caused by the removal of objects that were previously fixed to your weatherboards, we can repair and repaint these for you. Don’t leave it for too long, because the raw timber is an access point for moisture or fungal rot to set in, so you’ll want it filled quickly.
If the cracks are particularly long or bad, we can simply cut that section of weatherboard out, and replace it with a brand new one, fully sealed and treated on all edges (including the back and the cut edges) to ensure the best lifespan possible.
Weatherboard Rot Repairs
Do you have dry or wet rot that has set in to your weatherboards? We can remove sections of weatherboard and install new pieces. All cuts in the weatherboards will be properly treated, and gaps will be filled with a weatherboard exterior gap filler to protect you from future problems.

It really does depend on the cause of the damage to the timber, and how severe it is. If your cracks are caused by dry rot and there’s too much rot to salvage your timber, we don’t have much choice except to replace the boards. If it was an accidental one-off cause, then we may be able to patch and seal the damaged area, and repaint.
