Ocean Grove is a popular coastal destination for everyone from young families right through to retirees.

It’s a great place to live. Wonderful beach, plenty of space and a relaxed atmosphere. What’s not to like? But living in this stunning location, with its coastal weather conditions, means you have to get it right when selecting exterior paint for your Ocean Grove home.

Homes in this seaside town bear the brunt of harsh sunshine, rain and driving wind as well as the corrosive kiss of salt and sand. You don’t just need a house paint, you need a product that will stand firm against the elements as a line of defence for your home’s protection.

At Geelong Colourworld, our experienced team has been helping homeowners select the best exterior house paint for coastal living for years. And when it comes to exterior finishes, we recommend you pick a high-quality paint for the job. It will deliver dividends in the long run, lasting longer and giving your home better protection against coastal conditions including harsh UV rays that take a toll on paint chemicals.

Geelong Colourworld stocks a great range of exterior finishes from leading names including Taubmans, Jotun, Wattyl and Sikkens. We love Resene paint too. It’s such a proven performer when it comes to exterior finishes.

There is a world of technology that goes into making paint nowadays and that’s why it’s well worth talking to us before making a final selection on your exterior finish. We can advise you on the best exterior house paint for Ocean Grove conditions, so you end up with a product that’s technically and aesthetically right for the job.

While your choice of paint type and colour are important decisions, it’s worth remembering that you still need to get the preparation right for the result to sing. The better the preparation, the longer the paint should last. The paint-job’s foundations – washing away dirt and salt film, scraping, sanding and priming –  are all key factors in how well your exterior finish adheres and lasts.

If you want to buy exterior house paint for your Ocean Grove home, but are bewildered by all the choices and finishes, come and have a chat with us. We’ve been involved in the paint industry for years and we’ll be able to help you find paint that suits your home and your coastal climate.
