Running hot and cold - Samford Valley, Brisbane

Samford Valley, BrisbaneThe Samford Valley in Brisbane is well known for its diverse environmental conditions - from hot humid summers to frosty winter mornings - that play havoc with the average paint system. The builder of a new private residence on Samford Acreage well versed on this history sought products that would perform under these cyclically extreme conditions.

With expectations that specialist products would be required to complete the project, the builder was pleasantly surprised, both in terms of product and labour costs, to find that a two coat system of Resene Lumbersider satin acrylic would perform with ease under these conditions, protecting and beautifying this home for many summers and winters to come.

Builder: Watson Builders
Painting Contractor: Ian Mateer Painters & Decorators
Resene: Jason Osborn, Queensland Trade Sales Representative
