Smooth, gloss and anti-slip paints to treat concrete and metal surfaces along with pools, changing and shower areas.

Come on! It's time to start getting your pool ready for the cold Winter months. Properly preparing your pool water, plant and equipment will save time and money when you re-open your pool in the Spring. As Autumn turns to Winter, so the use of outside, uncovered pools wanes. If you're lucky enough to have a covered or indoor pool for Winter use, do take the time to maintain paintwork in and around the pool and pool room areas. Now is still an excellent time to put right and paint pools, their surrounds and the plant room. Providing application temperatures remain above 10C and it remains dry, then it’s fine to clean and re-paint.
Swimming pool Winter painting maintenance - iIf the temperature drops below 10C when you wish to paint, then please consult our guide "Painting In Cooler Weather" and also see the relevant Technical Data Sheet. If you are lucky enough to have a pool housing and undertake painting and maintenance, then it’s still good practice to open the doors and windows to allow the paint to dry naturally. As the seasons change, it is important that you are aware of the optimum weather and temperature conditions for maximising your painting opportunities. On this page, we will update our content to deliver timely and weather-appropriate Hints and Tips to help get you through your next project. Links to Advice, Preparation and our "How To" Guides will remain available from here and elsewhere on our site.
All to quickly Autumn slips into Winter which is a mixed bag for painting; Usually cold and damp, which will not readily nor easily dry out. But there are very often some mild days which may offer a small painting window for solvent-based coatings to be applied and more importantly, to dry and cure! Our A109 range, A1040 Multi Purpose Paint and our Chlorinated Rubber Coatings (R10, RP10, R34, R35) are all suitable for these conditions and are certainly worth having available within your "portfolio" of Autumnal and Winter paints. Of course painting internally is the most obvious thing to address, especially with Christmas closures (Schools etc.). Many of our products are temperature sensitive and have an optimum temperature application range to ensure their best performance. We recommend that you check your local weather conditions prior to starting your project.
Visit the BBC Weather Site for your area.
For other projects, now is also the perfect time to plan external maintenance that require more major repairs and attention ahead of any investment of time in painting. Concrete repairs, wood and metal replacement, gutters, downpipes and roofing etc., will all take time to properly prepare ahead of painting. Our Technical Team have experienced the complete range of variables throughout the seasons in over 70 years of trading! Please draw on this knowledge by contacting us on 01202 295570 or email us HERE. See our useful guide ‘PAINTING IN COOLER WEATHER’, below.
