Call on Colourworld for advice and product

Selecting the right exterior paint for your Torquay home, holiday house or business is vital if you want to achieve a great new look for the property.

Paint is a truly wonderful product. It takes buildings from faded to fresh and from out-dated and drab to contemporary in an instant.

One of the hottest current trends is the industrial cement look, with home owners, architects and builders selecting paint suitable for exterior cementitious/porous surfaces such as render, stucco, concrete blocks and bricks to provide instant appeal.

While techniques of render and bagging are not new, they’ve certainly been re-embraced. Teamed with sophisticated paint and coating technology, they are transforming older houses and fences and dressing them in a modern style. The right exterior paint also serves to make real architectural features out of new builds too.

At Geelong Colourworld, we’ve got the right products and advice to help you achieve this trendy look at your Torquay home.

But the devil is, as always, in the detail. We know that preparation is a key to getting the most out of your exterior paint result on cementitious/porous surfaces. Our experienced team can advise you on the correct preparation for your project. Is the surface clean? Should you apply a moss and mould killer first? Have you removed all dirt or oils from the painting surface? And how will the day’s temperature impact on the paint or textured coating you select?

We can also guide you through the paint or textured coating selection process, making sure that the product you choose is the best one for the job. We stock a wide range of quality paint brands for superior exterior applications including Resene. From the front door to the roof top, we’ve got you covered.

Resene Hi-Glo Coolcolour exterior paint for your house and roof is a great choice for painting cementitious surfaces while also delivering the goods on galvanised steel roofs and primed timber. Other popular choices include Resene Hi-Glo waterborne gloss/MIOX and Resene AquaShield mineral effect, waterborne. These are just a sample of the many painting and textured coating options available from us.

Our team has years of experience in supplying and advising people including professional painters on product selection and application. So if you’re after exterior paint in Torquay for your latest project, please contact us at Geelong Colourworld.
