Which is the best paint for exterior rendered walls?

If you’re looking to spruce up the exterior of your property, the best paint for exterior rendered walls is a weatherproof exterior emulsion paint. All the major paint brands have weatherproof exterior paint products in a variety of colours to choose from.

When painting your exterior walls for the first time, we recommend applying 3 coats of your chosen paint to achieve the best results – new render can be thirsty and often soaks up more paint than a standard wall.

How do I prepare outdoor paint for rendered walls?

Before applying any paint to your rendered walls, it’s important to make sure that the entire area you want to paint is completely dry. You will also want to scrape the walls to remove any loose nibs of cement before you start painting.

It’s a good idea to apply a coat of stabilising solution to prime the render and stop uneven dry patches so that your walls are ready to be painted.

Which is the best paint for exterior pebble dash?

Similar to rendered walls, for exterior pebble dash you’ll want to use a good quality exterior masonry paint that’s both waterproof and breathable.

Just make sure you buy enough paint for at least two coats, so that you get full coverage of your pebble dash.
