Weather Shield Paints

Does your next plan to give your home a facelift include a painting project? Well, consider it. Whether or not you really need to repaint your home’s exterior actually becomes apparent during the Raining season, which happens to be already upon us. During this season, the facade of your house is more likely to get tarnished and stained owing to near-constant rains. So, why not apply a weather shield to it beforehand, and before the exterior of your house actually starts pinching your eyes?


Fast fact: As the name signifies, weather shield paint provides resistance and durability against harsh weather, fungus, dirt, algae and alkali.

Weather shield paints are usually acrylic-based and become water-resistant upon drying. They also have a unique characteristic of repelling ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun, which is why these paints do not fade out easily. It is powered with Smart Release Technology which gives advanced protection against algae and fungus that is caused by the sun and rain.



Though the rates of weather shield paints vary from one brand to another, as a rough idea and Dulux Paint as an example, 1 liter of Dulux Trade Vinyl Matt (Extra Deep Base) paint is likely to cost you around ==N 7,137 and a drum containing almost 20 liters of paint may cost around =N=42,468. The rates, of course, may vary from one brand to another and these are just well-educated guesses and close estimates. The Brand Quality worth the Price.


Paint required

One litre of paint can cover a surface area of 155 ft2 per coat. However, the amount of the weather shield paint required for coating the exterior of your house largely depends on the following factors:

Quality of paint – A high-quality paint may appear costlier, but it may save you some dime as less of it will be required to get a standard finish.

Grey Structure – The grey structure of your house is likely to require more of the weather shield paint as compared to an already painted surface.    

Number of coats – Increasing the number of coats will obviously increase the consumption of paint.


Application Description

Apply 3-4 coats of Dulux Weathershield with 2-3 hrs of interval in between coats. The thinning ratio must be followed as per the application procedure.
