Consider the Light

The appearance of a colour's hue (shade) or vibrancy (brightness) may alter at higher and lower light levels.
Be sure to view your test location both day and night, and in different variations of daylight — sunny, cloudy, and so on.
Even though paint technology has improved considerably, it is a scientific fact that colour selection has a strong influence on paint performance. 
The amount of ultraviolet (UV) light absorbed or reflected by the colour affects the longevity of your paint job.

Consider the direction your house faces. On the Gold Coast if your house faces south, the color will look cooler, while a northern exposure warms the color because of the higher amount of UV light.

Another consideration is how quickly the paint may fade due to your home's sun exposure.
Are there any trees that will grow to eventually shade parts of the dwelling?
While our painting techniques are designed to give you the longest-lasting colour possible, some colours simply fade more quickly than others.

Colours that Fade Quickly

  • Yellows
  • Reds
  • Blues
  • Greens


Notice the colours that fade quickest are in the RGB (Red Green Blue) category ie the purest of colours.

To lessen the effects of fading too quickly, choose earth-tone colors such as browns or tans.
