Either way, welcome to Fluid Painting Solutions! Our team of experts is here to give you the best advice when it comes to choosing the right paint for your exterior.

In this blog post, we’ll be sharing the top tips on finding the best exterior paint for Canberra homes. Read on to find out more.

Prepare the surface

Before you even think about the right paint to use, you need to prepare the surface before painting. Make sure the surface is clean and free of any debris. Check for any cracks and chipping paint that needs to be dealt with.

Our team at Fluid Painting Solutions will give you the best advice on how to prepare your surfaces before painting. You don’t want your paint job to be compromised by underlying surface issues.

Choose the right type of paint

Choosing the right paint type is vital. Exterior paint is exposed to natural elements and can easily be damaged if not done properly. You have the option of water-based or oil-based paints, and you must choose the correct one that will adhere to your surface.

Our experts will help you make the right choice based on the type of surface you have, as well as the weather conditions in Canberra that can affect the paint.

Decide on colours that work well in Canberra

Canberra is a beautiful city with different vibes in terms of what you see in the city or the outskirts. Different colours work better in different parts of the town. Consider this before choosing a colour.

Neutral colours are a great option for Canberra homes, as they are not too harsh on the eye and blend well with the landscape. Our team has a vast knowledge of the best colours for exterior paint and can help you decide.

Choose a high-quality paint

Do not skimp on quality when it comes to choosing paint. High-quality paint means it lasts longer and has better coverage. High-quality paint will withstand weather elements, and it’s easier to clean. This avoids frequent repainting and saves you money in the long run.

Our team at Fluid Painting Solutions ensures that our clients get the best quality paint. Some of the most trusted painting brands we recommend but not limited to are Dulux, Taubsman, Wattyl, Haymes, Porter’s Paint, British Paints, Berger and more.
