Sprucing up the front porch with Zinsser

by Mars

Last summer, we did some major maintenance work on our garden room, which culminated in us painting the outside wood in a high-quality, weather resilient paint: Zinsser All Coat Exterior Satin.

We had the paint matched up to Farrow & Ball’s Green Blue by Decorating Centre Online (excellent service and turnaround time), and this paint has turned out to be an amazing purchase. We are now loyal Zinsser customers, and they will be our go-to paint going forward. The garden room took a hammering this winter and the paint has stood strong, and looks as good as the day we painted it. It really is great quality stuff.

The previous owners had painted the front porch using an indoor paint and only applied a single coat – that was their style. So Kirsten decided to restore and spruce up it up this week. And what a difference it’s made. Not only has it livened up the area, but we’ve weatherproofed it too. The before and after pictures speak for themselves.

Thanks Lesley. It’s as close a match that we could get to the chartwell green PVC windows.

Looks great! Following your article I also chose Zinsser paint for our front porch which is south facing. It applied really well and so far it’s also looking good. The real test for us will be how it looks by September.

Thanks Nigel. It really is good quality paint, and we’re super pleased with it. I’m sure yours will weather fine this year. The test will be how many years pass before we need to reapply it.
