The Best Paints for New Zealand Conditions

New Zealand’s climate can be challenging for exterior paints due to its diverse weather conditions, ranging from harsh UV rays to heavy rainfall. Choosing the right paint is crucial to ensure longevity and durability. Here are some of the best paint options for New Zealand conditions:

  • Acrylic Paints: Acrylic paints are water-based and highly durable, making them an excellent choice for New Zealand’s climate. They offer excellent UV resistance, flexibility to withstand temperature changes, and are easy to clean.
  • Elastomeric Paints: These paints are designed to stretch and contract with the surface they are applied to, making them ideal for weatherproofing. They are perfect for surfaces that experience frequent temperature fluctuations and heavy rain.
  • Oil-Based Paints: While less common nowadays, oil-based paints are still used for their durability and smooth finish. They are particularly useful for high-traffic areas and surfaces that require a tougher coating.
  • Environmentally Friendly Paints: As an Eco Decorator, Richard Gedye Ltd prioritises environmentally friendly options. Low-VOC and zero-VOC paints are great for reducing environmental impact while still providing robust protection against the elements.

Our Exterior Painting Process

At Richard Gedye Ltd, we follow a meticulous and comprehensive process to ensure that every exterior painting project meets our high standards of quality and durability. Here’s a step-by-step look at our exterior painting process:

1. Initial Consultation

Our process begins with an initial consultation where we discuss your vision, requirements, and budget. We assess the condition of your exterior surfaces and provide expert recommendations on the best paint options and colours to suit your needs.

2. Surface Preparation

Proper surface preparation is crucial for achieving a long-lasting finish. Our team takes the time to thoroughly clean and prepare the surfaces, including:

  • Cleaning: We remove dirt, mould, mildew, and any loose paint using high-pressure washing and appropriate cleaning agents.
  • Repairing: Any cracks, holes, or damaged areas are repaired to create a smooth, even surface. This includes filling gaps, sanding rough spots, and priming repaired areas.
  • Masking and Protecting: We carefully mask and protect windows, doors, landscaping, and any other areas that should not be painted, ensuring a clean and precise application.

3. Priming

Priming is essential for ensuring proper adhesion of the paint and enhancing its durability. We apply a high-quality primer that is suitable for the specific surface and paint type, creating a strong foundation for the topcoat.

4. Painting

With the surface prepared and primed, we proceed with the painting process. Our team applies multiple coats of the selected paint, ensuring even coverage and a smooth finish. We use professional-grade tools and techniques to achieve the best results, whether we’re using brushes, rollers, or spray equipment.

5. Quality Control

Quality control is a critical part of our process. We conduct thorough inspections at every stage of the project to ensure that the paint is applied correctly and that the finish meets our high standards. Any necessary touch-ups are made to achieve a flawless result.

6. Final Inspection and Cleanup

Once the painting is complete, we conduct a final inspection with you to ensure your satisfaction. We also take care of all cleanup, removing any masking materials and ensuring your property is left clean and tidy.
