4 Tips to pick correct color for external wall paints

Picking home colours can be a long and complicated job. There are many house painting colour combinations that you might want to try- especially in the external walls of your house, as it is what attracts the eyes of the viewers. You want the most perfect and the best colour for your house so as to make it stand out and distinctive. And so, the right preparations are needed to avoid regrets and mistakes. 

If you want to choose the most-fitting exterior paint for your house, here are some tips that you should definitely consider!

 

  • Exterior Paint should protect your house as much as it should decor it.

 

Homeowners want not just the best colour, but also a quality exterior paint that works as an added layer of protection from weather damage, insects, and dust. The exterior paint should also be able to protect your dream house from extreme weather elements such as hot sunshine, UV rays, and rains so that the exterior paint remains for a longer period of time. 

Berger Paints’ Weather coat Longlife is a luxury category exterior emulsion that uses PU & Silicon Technology. The product is designed for heavy rainfall areas and provides excellent protection against extreme rain and exterior walls issues. PU gives robust film strength and unmatched sheen to the paint film. Moreover, it comes with a 10-years performance warranty so as to protect your home for a longer period of time.

 

  • Dark colors are not a good idea for your exterior walls.

 

Dark colours maybe your favorite but choosing it as the wall paint of your exterior walls is a very bad idea as dark colors absorb more heat and dust will be very much visible on it. Do check whether the paint is formulated with resins and tinted with the right colorants which ensure colours that remain vibrant for years to come.

 

  • Visualize the colours

 

With so many varied options to choose from, it is often difficult to decide which colour to go ahead with and so you may get your colours wrong- especially if your inspiration doesn’t fit your home layout. To avoid such regrets, Berger Paints’ Mobile application “Berger Color App” has a colour visualizer tool to help you pick the right colours and their respective paints. It also allows you to upload your house photo, compare different colour schemes and decide which colour best suits your house and vibe.

 

  • Waterproof advantages for your exterior wall paint

 

Exterior surfaces should be given one additional coat for better protection as these areas are prone to water accumulation. Using waterproofing products is one of the best options for it. Any water that does hit your home will simply run off-preventing water penetration and reduce dirt and staining of the walls. The paint to be used must possess waterproofing ability, high strength, high flexibility, and great resistance to weather conditions.
