Paint Picker: products for all your exterior paint projects

Plan for paintwork perfection with our cheat-sheet to the best protection and colour


 

Paint by project
 

Stepping into your local DIY store to pick out the right paint for the outside of your house can be daunting. Follow our simple guide to the products in the Weathershield range so you can start with everything you need for your project and avoid making multiple trips that’ll slow down your efforts.

 

Key considerations

 

Before embarking on your exterior paintwork project, here are a few things to consider to help you get it right first time.

 

Expert Know-How

 

 

 

  • If your colour choice is much darker or lighter than the original, applying a primer will make your new paint colour adhere better to the surface.

 

  • Remember to clean the entire surface of your exterior to avoid ruining your paintwork with dust or mould. A rented pressure-washer is a cost- and time-efficient way of doing this.

 

  • For a smooth and seamless finish, fill any cracks and holes with Polycell Polyfilla before painting.

Exterior Essentials
 

Painting the outside of your house can take time, so give yourself the best start with the right tools and prep for a smooth-sailing project.

Extendable ladder
 

It’s important you can reach all areas of your outer walls safely, so make sure the steps you use are in good condition and tall enough for the job.

 

Dust sheets
 

Protect any garden paving and grass by covering them with a good-quality dust sheet below the area you are painting.

 

Rollers and extension pole
 

Painting large surface areas and hard-to-reach places is made easier by attaching a roller to the end of one of these.

 

Masking tape
 

This is a must for a clean line between trim and masonry, plus it’s great for masking off details like metal door knobs that you want to avoid getting paint on.

 

Paint brushes
 

Natural paint brushes are best for oil-based paints while synthetic brushes are best for water-based paints.

 

Masonry
 

Using the right paint for the right surface makes a difference in the quality of the finish. Whether you’re searching for mould-protected paint film or a flexible fix for hairline cracks, pick masonry paint tailored to your needs for the best results in exterior protection.  Our All Weather Protection formula is so reliable, we’re making a unique promise to you. If your walls peel, flake or there is mould growth in the paint film while you live in your home, we’ll return the value of a replacement product to you.
