Regularly changing exterior paints to meet the weather conditions and demands of a particular season isn’t advisable. However, by doing your research, you can choose the right paints to suit your property’s needs throughout the year. Here at Paintmaster, we can help you to find the perfect summer paints for your needs.  Certain paints and treatments can deliver a range of advantages through the summer period, while still providing a reliable service throughout the year.

As one of the UK’s leading providers of paints and treatments, Paintmaster can provide summer paints with long-term benefits. This year, we’ve been lucky (or unlucky, depending on your point of view) enough to experience scorching temperatures. Already named as one of the 10 warmest summers on record, this year more and more properties have started to realise how unprepared they are for the heat. Thankfully, Paintmaster offers a wide range of weather-resistant summer paints for all kinds of surfaces. 

Why Are Summer Paints So Important?

Most people, if asked, would consider summer the least dangerous season for your property’s appearance. The increased rainfall in winter, autumn and spring are major causes of cosmetic damage for all kinds of properties. However, in direct sunlight (and the heat that comes with it), all kinds of painted surfaces can crack.

It is extremely important that you protect your exterior surfaces with effective treatments. This can prevent the paint from cracking and flaking away from the wall. There are also paints which are more resilient to damage than others, reducing the risk of cosmetic injury throughout the summer months.

In addition to damage-resistant summer paints for masonry surfaces, there are also models available for a range of other features. For example, metal roofs and walls can become incredibly hot when left in direct sunlight. Certain paints can be used to reflect the sunlight from these surfaces. It is also possible for a hot environment to contribute to the moisture within a property. This can then lead to a range of structural concerns.

What are the Risks of Unprotected Surfaces in Summer?

Any exterior surface without weather-resistant paints and treatments can suffer serious damage. The damage they suffer can sometimes be limited to cosmetic, whereas they can also lead to structural issues. It is also possible for exterior surfaces to contribute to interior damage, often resulting in paint and drywall damage. These conditions can be extremely costly to repair. If left untreated, however, they can spread and cause even more serious conditions.

All kinds of exterior, and even some interior surfaces, can suffer serious damages. These can include:

  • Driveways – Driveways, particularly those made from asphalt, are exposed to the sun’s heat all day long. They can absorb and retain heat throughout the day, which can lead to serious damages across the surface. The heat can often cause these surfaces to break down, resulting in serious cracks. If placed under a great deal of stress, hot driveways are also more susceptible to damage. Asphalt and other materials are often weaker and can become soft when they’re hot. As such, tools and weights can dig in and seriously damage the surface.
  • Metallic Walls, Roofs and Features – In the sunlight, metallic walls, roofs and features can quickly become extremely hot. These surfaces will absorb and retain a great deal of heat. This can not only make them extremely uncomfortable to the touch, it can also cause long-term damage. For example, they could start to warp or change in size. Although this will only be minor, over time it can cause serious problems across your home or business.
  • Masonry Surfaces – In the heat, masonry surfaces can crack and become more vulnerable to all kinds of damage. Exposed cement will become softer and can be chipped away fairly easily, even by minor impacts. This damage can also cause bricks and stones to become vulnerable.
  • Painted Surfaces – Any kind of painted surface, whether wood, masonry or plastic, can suffer damage if left in direct sunlight. Sometimes, this can be limited to the discolouration of the paint itself. However, it is also possible for the paint itself to crack and flake away from the wall. This kind of cosmetic damage will result in an unpleasant appearance and can increase your surface’s vulnerability.
