TOP TIPS FOR... preparing to decorate your home's exterior

YOUR home's exterior requires regular maintenance to keep it in good condition, so give it some TLC now to get it looking its best for summer. The perfect conditions for decorating outside are dry, warm and overcast weather, as high temperatures can cause paint to blister. Like any decorating task, preparation usually takes much longer than the painting itself, but is essential for a good finish and to prolong the life of the redecoration.

It's important not to cut corners with the quality of your tools and materials. You'll need a range of different-sized brushes, preferably no-bristle-loss ones, as well as a long-pile exterior roller. Or, if the walls are very rough, a 15cm-wide brush (you can get brushes designed for masonry paint).

You'll need masonry paint or exterior emulsion for the walls -- opt out for products that are hard-wearing and quick-drying, have added ingredients such as fungicide to inhibit mould growth, and come with a guarantee.

New rendering and masonry with a chalky feel should be sealed with a stabilising solution first. Before painting, fill any cracks and holes with exterior filler, clean off any mould and use a wire brush on any rust and flaking paint.

Choose a quick-drying satinwood or gloss for the exterior metal and woodwork because you'll get the job done in a fraction of the time it takes with oil-based paints.
