Can I paint in damper, cooler weather?

specialist paint suppliers

As of November 2019, all of our TECHNICAL DATA and MSDS SAFETY sheets have been updated. This has led to some products being re-coded and others being deleted as being non-compliant with current regulations. If in doubt, please contact our TECHNICAL TEAM. The full list of both is available on the Data Sheets page and also listed with individual products.

We are specialist paint manufacturers and suppliers. Please note we are not decorating contractors and do not provide a painting/application service.

Spring is soon upon us and what a great time for those external projects such as painting roofs, tennis courts, swimming pools, pool houses and ponds. Get planning & preparing before painting!

The prolonged cold and very wet Winter has left damage to surfaces that will need attention before painting. The freeze/thaw action has broken down asphalt and tarmac surfaces and blown many poorly protected concrete surfaces such as pools, pool surrounds and roofing areas in particular. Many will need cutting out and replacement sections put in place.

We offer a full, free advisory service to help you before you paint. Just email us with a broad outline of your project, ideally with photos to show the condition of the substrate. We will assess your situation and give you our recommendations along with a painting specification and timings to help achieve your end result. If the condition of the substrate is too damaged or outside of our product range, then we will advise you accordingly.

We offer a comprehensive range of paints and performance coatings for most situations and surfaces. Some popular types are in stock and others are made to order within a few working days. With new resources, we are now able to offer a faster turnaround on our most popular products.

We are pleased to receive enquiries of a technical nature. Call us on 01202 295 570 or email us with your enquiry. We have a vast range of mainstream and specialist products suitable for industrial, commercial, coastal, rural or city environments. We also have over 70 years of expertise to call upon so we rarely come across a requirement we haven’t seen before and we can supply both water based and solvent based systems for professional and trade use. If using paints in communal situations or areas of high use, remember water based coatings don’t smell as much as solvent types. We do however have a comprehensive range of both. We are stockists of Fertan Rust Treatment.

If you are suffering with “Solar Gain” (greenhouse effect) from a glass, asphalt or metal roof, see our Solar Reflective and Anti-glare water based or solvent based products. Now is a great time to give your ROOF some protection.

Once you have established the ideal end-result for your project, refer to our Substrate Index for product options and take a few invaluable moments to read our Painting Guides - see below.

"We would just like to say how delighted we are with your pool paint and your service. My husband says it's the best paint he's ever used and we have a very large pool, so it's a big job. Good stuff everyone, and many, many thanks."
