Here’s how to find the right paint for your home exterior.
Concrete Sealers — Concrete is a popular choice for many outdoor areas, including driveways, patios, and walkways. Over time, concrete can become stained, cracked, or weathered due to exposure to the elements. Concrete sealers are specialty paints designed to protect and enhance the appearance of concrete surfaces. They form a protective layer on the concrete, preventing water absorption, which can lead to cracking and damage.
Concrete sealers can also provide a glossy finish, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the surface. By sealing the concrete, these paints also make it easier to clean and maintain.
Low Sheen Exterior Paints — The sheen level of paint refers to its shine or glossiness. Low-sheen paints strike a balance between matte and glossy finishes. They have a slight shine, which can help reflect some of the sun’s rays, reducing the heat absorption of the walls.
Low-sheen paints are ideal for exterior walls as they hide imperfections better than high-gloss paints and are easier to clean than matte finishes. They provide a smooth and elegant finish, making them a popular choice for many homeowners.

FAQs about exterior paints
Yes! Our Wattyl Solagard Low-Sheen exterior house paint is self-priming.
Self-priming exterior paints combine the properties of primers and regular paints, offering both adhesion and colour in one product. They contain binding agents for strong adherence to surfaces, fill minor imperfections for a smooth finish, and seal stains to prevent them from showing through the final coat.
These paints are time-saving, eliminating the need to apply and wait for a separate primer to dry. They can also be cost-effective, as you’re purchasing and using one product instead of two.
While they simplify the painting process, especially for DIY enthusiasts, there are situations where a dedicated primer might be more suitable, such as painting over significantly contrasting colours or heavily stained surfaces.
The UV resistance of exterior paints varies based on the quality of the paint, the ingredients used, the environment, and the surface’s exposure to direct sunlight. Generally, higher-quality paints with premium ingredients offer better UV resistance than their cheaper counterparts.
It’s essential to note that while many paints offer UV resistance, no paint is entirely UV-proof. Over time, all paints will eventually show signs of wear due to UV exposure. When choosing exterior paint, it’s a good idea to consult with paint professionals or read product specifications to understand the expected longevity of its UV resistance.
