Re-invent your home with a fresh coat of paint
Your home is your castle. Not only that, it’s a serious long-term investment. Many people buy a house expecting to live in it for a good while. And over time, colours and finishes get tired and dated. Chipped, peeling paint smudged with stains and fingerprints can be a source of frustration.
A fresh paint job can breathe new life into tired interiors and exteriors, updating your home’s personality and enhancing its tidy presentation and pleasant, welcoming atmosphere. Painting interior walls can boost your home’s value and appeal to prospective buyers, showing them the house has been well cared for.

You won’t know we were there – apart from your immaculate paint job!
All of our workmanship, products and applications are guaranteed in conjunction with our paint and material suppliers. Dixon and Dixon commonly use Resene paints, which are proven over many years in tough NZ conditions.
How to tell if it’s time for an exterior repaint
If you don’t have your home repainted from time to time, eventually the sun, wind and rain will take its toll on the unprotected substrates underneath. Weathering and rot can be costly. Avoid serious damage to your home by ensuring the exterior is repainted every seven to ten years, depending on the environmental conditions. This ensures your home’s exterior remains sealed and protected from the elements. Of course, quality paint applied by professionals will last the longest so be sure to choose your house painters well!
A few signs that your home is due for an exterior repaint:
- Flaking, peeling or checking: Examine your exterior paint carefully. If you see peeling or flaking, the paint is no longer protecting your home. Checking – hairline cracks in the paint – is a sign the paint is close to failing.
- Fading colour: New Zealand’s brilliant sunshine is good for a lot of things but paint is not really one of them. Sun not only bleaches your exterior paint but deteriorates its integrity in the long term. It’s hard to tell if your paint is faded as the process is so gradual – try taking a photo of the house when the paint is fresh and compare it at regular intervals over the coming years.)
- Chalking: Run your hand over the surface of your exterior paint. If it feels rough and leaves a chalky residue on your hand, this is called ‘chalking’, another sign your paint job is deteriorating.
- Signs of rot: soft, soggy rotting spots on your timber home, even if they’re still painted, are definitely a sign the paint is not protecting your home as it should. Rotting areas will need to be replaced before a thorough repaint is commenced.
