Specialised Exterior Paints

The finest exterior Paint must survive adverse conditions, including sunshine, temperature changes, and other factors. Because of this, certain formulae are explicitly created for use in some regions of your home. Therefore, your choice of exterior Paint will be influenced by the surfaces and parts of your property that will be painted.

The type of Paint you select will be based on your home's climate, the coatings used on your home (for example, brick or wood), and the colour and appearance you want to achieve. When choosing the colour of your Paint, think about what colours will look best with the rest of your house's interior and exterior decor. Some areas may need more than one coat of Paint to achieve the desired colour effect. Make sure you apply at least a second coat after the first coat has dried sufficiently.

Australian paint manufacturers offer a comprehensive range of high-quality paints for exterior applications. The most popular brands include Duluxm Wattyl, Zinsser, and Johnstone's. Choose an interior exterior with water-based or oil-based Paint. Outdoor structures such as sheds require exterior water-based paints on masonry or metal surfaces.

When painting your house, be sure to use a quality brush and primer. Applying primer to your walls ensures an even base for the top coat and prevents premature flaking. You can also use a primer to cover old paint jobs. For a more durable finish, use a top coat. Choose a paint rated "low VOC" to minimise exposure to harmful fumes.
