Give your property a new makeover for spring with these outside painting tips

Is it possible to paint outdoors in the winter?

It’s well known that the British weather can be extremely unpredictable. To begin this type of work, we recommend that it be sunny and dry, with no danger of rain. As a result, the milder temperatures of spring and summer make this the ideal time to get things started.


Moving furniture

Painting the exterior of your home requires careful planning and preparation, and if you make a mistake, you could end up having to start over. If you’re unable to move any furniture, we recommend covering it up with sheets and cleaning the space first.

Getting the walls ready

Then it’s time to get to work on the walls. Use an anti-fungicidal wash after a power wash to eliminate any fungi or moss that may be present. After that, you’ll need to give the wall some time to dry completely.


Once the wall has dried, it can be treated. For flaky or powdery surfaces, start with an exterior masonry stabiliser primer. There are some situations when a stabilising solution isn’t necessary and we recommend two coats of exterior paint instead.


The final phase in the preparedness process is to ensure that you and your belongings are adequately protected. Tape around all windows and pipework is a good idea, in our opinion. Plastic sheets or old newspapers can also be used for this purpose.

Outside painting supplies

When it comes to roughcasting, we recommend utilising a heavy-duty pile roller sleeve with an adequate screw-in pole and a roller bracket, because you don’t want your roller to fall off the pole. Hamilton barrel brushes are ideal for cleaning your home’s outside windows. Finally, we suggest using purdy brushes to clean the remaining woodwork (fascias and soffits).

An experienced hand can make all the difference

Many people find painting the outside of their home to be a daunting process, and it should be approached with caution. We always encourage working with b to get the finest outcomes. Preparation, tools, and paint are all taken care of for you so that you can get on with your day and know that your home’s exterior will receive a professional and flawless finish with lasting results.
