Weatherproof Your Home for the Cooler Months

Now that the weather is cooling down, Northern Beaches’ homeowners are starting to think about how to protect their homes against the elements. According to the Bureau of Meteorology, the month of June is when we receive the highest average rainfall.

We are so lucky to live in this beautiful area, surrounded by natural wonders, such as conserved bushland and stunning beaches. Although, living on this magnificent coastline does take its toll on our homes. Deterioration of the exterior façade takes place more rapidly due to the prevailing winds, with salt, moisture and even sand in the air.

Our Top Tips to Protect Your Home

  • Painting the exterior of your home will help to protect your biggest financial asset against the weather. In addition to selecting the desired colour scheme, it is important to choose the right paint or coating for the job. Exterior paints have UV resistance and anti-mould ingredients.
  • If you want to go one step better for that extra protection, then an exterior waterproofing membrane is an excellent choice. This type of coating, used in the construction industry, also delivers a high-build barrier which is extremely tough and flexible as well as weather resistant.
  • Acrylmeric WeatherTuff is a decorative long-life coating which is manufactured here on the Northern Beaches and is available in 22 COLORBOND® colours through Colormaker Industries.
