What is the best exterior house paint?
The best exterior house paint that we offer is the GCS Exterior, it offers the most amount of colours, it’s easy to apply and toughened with natural graphene, which helps reduce cracking and peeling.

I think the best exterior wall paint is the GCS Exterior, due to the great range of natural colours available, strength and ease of use.
What range of exterior paint colours?
We offer a fabulous range of exterior paint colours, which you can see in our colour chart. Please note that some of the deeper shades are not advised for exteriors due to some natural pigments suffering more from UV damage than others. This is noted on the colour chart to help you decide.

This would be the Graphenstone Grafclean Midshine, which is a super tough paint that when used with the primer provides excellent adhesion for wood and metals. It has a lovely semi matte finish, more of a satin at 10% sheen and perfect for so many applications for outside wood work.

What to do when you’ve accidentally used exterior paint indoors.
If you’ve used Graphenstone paints this is no problem at all, the exterior paints will work fine inside too! Exterior paints are just a different recipe as they have different needs, so although they will work fine inside of course, we would always recommend an interior paint for interior walls rather than an exterior!
How much to paint a house exterior UK?
This is simple to work out, you just need to measure the walls and go from there.
To work out how many square metres you have, you multiple the length by the height in metres of each wall, and this will give you the square metres. Do this for each wall, and take off a few square metres at the end for things like windows and doors! One you have all data, add it all together and this will give you the total square metres of wall space. You then divide that by the coverage of the paint ins question and work out the number of coats, so for instance if your two walls total 100 square metres, and the paint covers at 10sqm per litre, you then need 10L of paint per coat. Simple!
