Trying my hand at a painting project. Wanting to know what is the best exterior paint to use for outside doors and trims. Looking for something UV and mould resistant. Ultimately want to tint the base colour. This is a little sample I tried.
I typically suggest Dulux Weathershield as it is a premium self-priming exterior paint that is UV and mould resistant. It also has a wonderful warranty which covers you for the time you spend in that home. You also have thousands of colour choices which it can be tinted to.
If the surface you're painting is sound and not deteriorated, you just need to give it a wash down before painting over it. Check out this helpful guide: How to paint your exteriors.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
I was able to have a chat to Dulux, and they recommended the Dulux Aquastain in a semi gloss which is mould resistant, to wash it down with sugar soap and to use a Dulux undercoat and primer.
Is this ok?
The steps suggested by Dulux are also possible. However, using the Dulux Weathershield is a more cost-effective option as you will not need to buy a separate can of primer. Please make sure to read the recommended guide - How to paint your exteriors so that you'll be prepared before you start painting.

Awesome. Sounds good. I'll have a read and go from there!
