Exterior walls need just as much protection as interior walls. They make a good first impression of your home when you have visitors, and a homeowner like you won’t see them as an eyesore when they are well-maintained.

You probably don’t want your house to look like this….

Whether you just got a new house or you’re trying to give your current one a makeover, you should always remember to invest in your wall paints. After all, you’ll be living there for a long time!

Did you know, though, that you’re not supposed to use any kind of paints for your exterior walls? Before you get too excited and start shopping for your tools, find out what kind of paints you should avoid using before you give your home a makeover:

#1 Interior paint

Aren’t all paints the same?

No! The main difference between interior and exterior paint is the chemicals used in them. Exterior paint is specially formulated to be able to handle harsh weather and is UV resistant, so your house walls will be protected from rain, sun and dirt—which is why you should always opt for good quality exterior paint.

#2 Not using a sealer

A ‘sealer’ is the first layer that needs to be applied to the surface you’re planning to paint on. It ensures proper adhesion of paint film and delivers long-lasting colours. If you don’t use a sealer, you’ll end up having to do more maintenance work in the future.

#3 Using paint that’s straight out of the tin

We know you’ve been looking forward to painting your walls, but wait up! You’ll find it hard to get a significant amount of paint you need on your painting tool, and you could transfer impurities and lumps in the paint onto your walls.

And if you’re using a dirty brush, you might contaminate an entire tin of paint. Shake it and stir before you start painting!

#4 Low-quality paint

Painting over your exterior walls should be a worth-while investment. Don’t skimp by using cheap, low-quality paint. In the long run, there are hidden costs you’ll end up paying for.

Low-quality paint are also not as durable as high-quality ones too, especially when you consider Malaysia’s harsh rainy and hot seasons. In a few years, you’ll see your cheap paint deteriorate—it will start to peel or fade. You shouldn’t let that happen to your lovely home!        

So, make the right choice when it comes to painting your exterior walls!
