Exterior Painting Hints and Tips

Exterior Paint Systems | The importance of using the correct types of paint for property exteriors.


When it comes to enhancing the beauty and longevity of a property, attention to detail is critical. One often overlooked but crucial detail is the type of paint used for the exterior. The correct choice of durable paints can significantly impact the property’s aesthetics, durability, and overall value. C&M Painters & Decorators of Staffordshire delve into the importance of using the most suitable types of paint for the exterior of properties and explore its various benefits.

Protection Against the Elements

The exterior of a property is constantly exposed to harsh weather conditions such as rain, UV rays, wind, and temperature fluctuations. The correct types of paint, especially in the highly changeable British weather climate, explicitly formulated for exterior surfaces, provide a vital protective barrier. High-quality exterior colours offer far more durability whilst resisting fading, cracking, peeling, and blistering, ensuring the property maintains its visual appeal even in challenging climates.

Durability and Longevity

Investing in premium exterior paint can lead to significant cost savings in the long run. Quality paints are formulated and manufactured with advanced technologies and superior ingredients that enhance their durability and protect the fabric of your building. When applied correctly, these paints create a robust, long-lasting finish requiring fewer touch-ups and repaints, saving you money and reducing the inconvenience and disruption caused by frequent maintenance.

Enhanced Aesthetics

The exterior appearance of a property speaks volumes about its upkeep and value. Choosing the right type of paint allows you to achieve the desired aesthetic appeal. Whether you’re going for a traditional, contemporary, or rustic look, a wide range of exterior paints are available in various colours and finishes to suit your preferences. The correct paint can transform a property’s kerb appeal, making it infinitely more inviting and visually pleasing.

Improved Property Value

The exterior of a property plays a significant role in determining its market value. A well-maintained and aesthetically pleasing exterior can enhance the overall perceived value of the property. Prospective buyers or renters are more likely to be drawn to a property with a fresh and appealing exterior paint job. Conversely, a poorly maintained exterior with peeling or faded paint can negatively impact the property’s value and deter potential buyers.

Minimized Maintenance

Using the correct type of paint for the exterior reduces the need for frequent touch-ups and repainting. Quality exterior paints are resistant to fading, chalking, and other forms of deterioration, meaning that the property will maintain its vibrant appearance for a more extended period, reducing the time, effort, and cost required for ongoing maintenance.

Environmental Considerations

The choice of exterior paint can also have environmental implications. Opting for eco-friendly and low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) paints helps minimize the release of harmful chemicals into the environment and indoor air. These paints are safer for the environment and contribute to healthier living spaces for occupants.


With property maintenance and enhancements, the importance of using the correct types of paint for the exterior cannot be overstated. From protecting against the elements to enhancing aesthetics and improving property value, the right choice of paint offers many benefits. Property owners can enjoy a more durable, visually appealing, and valuable asset for years to come by investing in high-quality exterior paint and ensuring proper application.
