Sun smart - Hervey Bay residential units

Durable and non fading Resene paints for residential seaside units  The seaside sunbathed residential units of Hervey Bay, Queensland are open to extreme weather conditions with even the gentlest sea breezes carrying salt laden air onto the exterior, let alone the piercing salt spray of a strong storm.

With fading proving to be a problem with the previous paint system, the owners needed a durable exterior colour system with two coat topcoat coverage. An exterior system of Resene Quick Dry Acrylic Primer Undercoat topped in Resene Lumbersider satin acrylic on walls and Resene Hi-Glo gloss acrylic on trims was selected to provide a durable, easy to maintain exterior. Hues fit the location with the clean blue hue of Resene Endeavour complemented by Resene Astral and Resene Spanish White bringing the hues of surf and sand onto the complex.

Surf and sand outside and seaside, residents have nothing left to do but sit back and enjoy the location.
