Making a Home Your Own with a Range of Unique Colours
Regardless of whose home we visit, there will be a time when we can see their characteristics echoed within the décor and design of the property. Many are keen to emulate this within their own home but are unsure how to do it.
The colour scheme of the home can make all the difference. And a great colour scheme can really mirror the personality of the family. Although this is easy to do on the inside, others may find implementing the same strategy outside to be troublesome. There are those who may have used some paints in the past, only to find that the exterior of the property is peeling within a matter of months.
Fortunately, advancements have been made that means embedding your persona into the aesthetics of the home itself is now easier than it’s ever been. It’s simply about choosing the right product and colour.
The Benefits of Wall Coating
When redesigning the exterior of a home, it’s vital to use the right products. Wall coating is available in a range of different colours and can offer several benefits to homeowners.
It can add value to a property. It helps safeguard against damp and mould, two common problems that householders endure.
Exterior wall coating can also help improve the aesthetic as a whole if the building is historic.
Poor external condition of a property can significantly devalue your home. So, putting safeguarding measures in place is always a benefit.
There are also the longevity benefits to consider. Paint not designed for the task is likely to last around a year at best. But, as wall coating is designed exclusively for the outside of the property, it will last for several years without showing signs of wear-and-tear.
Using conventional paint on the exterior of the property can yield some benefit in the short-term. But the maintenance of the property could become problematic.
For example, those in remote locations will find that a lack of shielding by other property means there is more weather beating to the property.
In most instances planning permission won’t be needed. But it can be worthwhile checking if you live in a conservation area or listed building.
What are RAL Colours?
The RAL is an acronym for the German ‘Reichs-Ausschuss für Lieferbedingungen’ which translates to ‘State Council for Terms and Delivery.’
The use of RAL colours ensures that there is plenty of information available when it comes to producing colours for wall coating, varnish and paint among other things.
Although not the only colour standard used it is one of the most commonly used and offers enough choices for homeowners to truly put their stamp on the family home. The picture below shows the huge range of colours.
How Much Does Wall Coating Cost?
The cost of wall coating can depend on the design and size of the property. In the short-term, purchasing DIY paint from a local store can seem like a more cost-effective alternative. But it’s likely you’ll need to repaint it the next year.
Just because wall coating may be more expensive doesn’t mean it’s not a good investment. In fact, investing in wall coating could save you more money in the long-term when compared to conventional DIY paint.
The use of wall coating is ideal for those looking to make their property stand out while ensuring that the investment is going to be beneficial in the long-term.
It’s not only the product that has to be of high quality. But also the professional carrying out the wall coating.
When using any professional, it’s of the utmost importance that homeowners confirm that they are licensed and insured.
Although a cheaper service can seem attractive in the interim, an unprofessional could be more expensive in the long run?
And while you shouldn’t concentrate on the price alone, you shouldn’t need to spend a small fortune in relation to wall coating.
