Exerior Masonry

This oatmeal shade with an underlying grey is inspired by the nurturing porridge favoured over many centuries in Ireland. A lighter version of sandy Jitney. 

For brick, render and concrete, Exterior Masonry brings super matt, long-lasting colour to exterior walls. Its water-resistant formula protects walls, while also offering the highest level of water vapour permeability to allow them to breathe. Applied in line with our Product Advice Sheets, it resists flaking, peeling, and fading for up to 15 years.

Key features

Very matte

Very matte

Exterior Masonry is our super-matte, long-lasting finish for exterior walls with a 2% sheen. 

Our deeper, richer colours are available in a range of finishes with different sheen levels. Sheen always affects how colour appears: the same shade in gloss can look very different in matte. That’s why we specifically adjust the formula for every finish to make sure the balance is exactly right and you get the colour you were expecting. Our colours and finishes are formulated together, so you simply can’t have one without the other

100% water based

100% water based

We’re proud to have been the first in the industry to transition to a completely water based range back in 2010. As a result, all of our finishes, including our tough trim and floor paints, are made with a low-odour, low-VOC water base that scores A+ for indoor air quality. 
 
Plus, our water based paint doesn’t discolour over time like solvent based paints can. So your spaces stay beautiful for longer.

Toy safe

Toy safe

This finish is independently tested and certified toy-safe in accordance with Safety of Toys Part 3: Migration of certain elements (EN 71-3:2019+A1:2021). That means you can and a splash of colour to toys, cribs and other surfaces little ones come into contact with. Our paints also have hardly any odour and don’t need any solvents to clean up, so you can breathe easy during application and beyond.
