澳洲Australia property Wooden panels | Sydney
在澳大利亚 Hi Guys, Ive found a property that has mentioned two payments coming up of $1400 to apparently top up the admin fund and 2 have just been paid. Im looking at a financial statement (basically a balance sheet) for the strata and its all a bit Hi all, I currently have a PPOR and 10K cash in the bank which I plan to use as a deposit for a IP early next year. Is it possible for me to place this into my PPOR loan and then redraw the 10K when Im ready for the IP and then claim the int
A house of mine has those old fashioned wooden panels on the walls... What's the best way to remove these panels or is it just a case of painting over these panels?
Looking to paint after the panels have been removed.
How old fashioned, 1920's or 1970's? It depends on how they are fixed to the wall and what the substrate is. Sometimes it is glued to the brick/plasterboard and the only option is to rip it off. If it is nailed to battens you can lift a corner and pull off with a hammer.
How bad is it anyway? Can you paint over it? Some times removal creates other damage or leaves residue difficult to remove and it could be easier to just surface prep and paint?
If you mean dado panels then you should consider keeping them as they are a period feature.
If however, as I suspect, you mean the 70's style timber veneer stuff used during renovations 30 odd years ago then it can be pulled off and the walls regyprocked (is that a word or did I invent it?).
My sister just painted over hers with enamel gloss paint and it came up nicely with the irregular vertical grooves adding to the effect in the room - definately the cheap option here.
Thanks Simon and Michael
Yes they are the 70s type wooden panels with the 'grooves'. I'm looking at doing a minor cosmetic reno and don't really want to strip them off if it means any gyrocking etc...
What type of preparation before painting is best for these panels... ?I am really looking at a matt type finish.
Try ESP (Easy Surface Preparation) as the panels are often vinyl clad and this will help any paint you use to stick.
My daughter had great fun ripping the random grooved panels from the wall, to find they had been contact adhesived to grey paint which was over deep purple paisley printed wall paper which was over about seven layers of brown wall preparation paper which was over a rendered concrete wall. Phew!
So we filled the garden pressurised sprayer with warm water & detergent and sprayed and scraped back to the rendered finish, filled the holes, primed and painted, and the wall looks a million bucks!
In my humble opinion, this stuff was mainly glued or tacked to walls. Look at the coving line. If the wall only comes out as far as the profile of the coving (cornice) then it will be fixed in a simple way to the original plasterboard wall.
If removing it damages the paper surface of the plasterboard, just skim coat the wall or, in extreme cases, repaper the wall with preparation paper. You can get this at wall paper suppliers such as Bristol.
leave the timber sheets in place, and use Rendertex across the whole wall to blur the groove pattern. You can then leave this as a stippled pattern, or trowell it smooth for a rendered look.
You can also fill the grooves/gaps before ESPing and painting to give the wall a flat surface.
If you are doing a minor reno then just paint over them...worst case is you waste half a tin of paint and end up ripping them out. Best case is you are happy with the finish
