Exterior Paint Ranges

5 ranges to explore

When you begin designing your building, one of the big choices you will need to make is which colour, or colours, to choose for the exterior. Colour is a wonderful thing: it has the ability to either lift and elevate your building to a beautiful garden focal point, or it can help camouflage your building and make it blend in for a more understated look. 

Depending on the building design you choose, we have 5 main paint ranges for you to look through. Each building we produce is hand-sprayed in our Norfolk workshop to ensure a consistent, professional finish. 

If you would like to order a sample of any of these paint colours to help make your decision, please Contact Us or call 01760 444229.

Our Exterior paint colours are fully opaque; the 2 coat system is proven to be the best possible protection for exterior timber, meaning that it achieves a very low maintenance, durable finish. Choose a single colour for your building if you wish, or you can also paint the doors and windows a different colour for a truly distinctive look.
