Many Perth painters do not have the knowledge or expertise to carry out exterior house painting in Perth’s extreme environment. With 26 years of painting experience throughout Western Australia, Barker-Whittle is the obvious choice to repaint the exterior of your property.

Our in-house colour consultant can help to select the best colours to achieve the look you have in mind, and our experts will advise on the best paint products, including primers and sealers, for your situation.

Being Dulux accredited painters, we are up-to-date with the latest products available whether they be water based enamels, metallics or enviro paints, which are characterised by low VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) and low odour for allergy sufferers.


Written Warranties Backed by Dulux

We provide a written 5-year warranty on our workmanship and a written 7 or 10-year product warranty. As accredited Dulux painters, using only premium quality Dulux paints, our warranties are backed by Dulux themselves.


Difficult-To-Access Properties

Barker-Whittle is often called upon to repaint properties that are difficult to access. We have access to scaffolding and specialised machinery such as cherry pickers and boom lifts required for exterior house painting work. All our trades-people have a Safety Awareness Card and must comply with our Company Policy and Procedures to ensure the work can be carried out safely, without danger to people or property.

Environmental Concerns

Many areas of Western Australia have high levels of UV radiation and wind-borne salt in the air. Surprisingly, both of these concerns are often as true in inland areas as they are in areas close to the coast. To say that these conditions are cruel to painted surfaces is an understatement. In such harsh environmental conditions, it is critical to use the correct paints, primers and sealers so that the finish will last as long as possible. Having Dulux accreditation gives Barker-Whittle access to a wide range of exterior paints, including:

  • Zinc-rich, anti-corrosive metal primers;
  • 2-pack epoxies;
  • Membrane paints, or;
  • The tried and tested Dulux Weathershield X10.

Experience & Expertise Make The Difference

Barker-Whittle’s exterior house painting professionals are experts in applying all of these products, and we can advise you on the optimum products to suit your particular situation. Exposed surfaces in offshore, coastal, riverside and estuarine environments, as well as adjacent to inland salt lakes — we’ve dealt with them all over the years! Testament to our expertise in dealing with harsh environmental situations is our recent appointment to paint the accommodation units at Varanus Island, off the northwest coast of Australia. You can read more about this on commercial projects page.

You can be confident in knowing that, if Barker-Whittle undertakes your exterior house painting job you will be in the best possible hands for a paint job that will last for many years, whatever the conditions.
