Painting of Matrix board
On stage 2 of our Saint Michaels project the exterior cladding was to be Matrix board cut into different shapes and sizes and painted one of 3 colours with black edging and gaps. While this was a very time consuming job the final finish of this exterior cladding looks great.
Each board had to be filled where the holes were drilled and to get a perfect flush finish. We had to use to filling compounds one stronger to fill the main hole and finish off with a super smooth gloss plaster for the top of the hole. Also all the edging and gap that surrounds each board had to be painted black which was also very time consuming. The boards then were paited with a very fine nap roller sleeve in one of the 3 colours. They were all colourbond colours consisting of Wallaby, surfmist and Evening haze.
Once the walls were done there were sunhoods fitted around the windows consisted of 3 boards which were each one of the 3 colours to give a uniform and very good looking finish.
