Do your paints come with a guarantee?

Yes! Our range of Aalto Ultra Premium paints are backed by a 15 year guarantee as a mark of quality.

Do I need to use a primer?

Usually not. Our paints are self-priming with great opacity (coverage), however there are some instances where we do recommend the use of a primer – painting new surfaces; if you’re painting over old, solvent based enamels; if you are painting over a dark or bright colour; if your walls are stained or smoke-damaged.

If you're unsure, check the product data sheets for full application recommendations.

What is the paint selector tool?

We know it can be a bit overwhelming knowing what paint, and how much, to use where.

So we've created the Aalto Paint Selector, which after asking a few simple questions will tell you exactly what paint you need.

How do I maintain my interior paint finish?

Maintain your interior paint finish by cleaning with a damp cloth and neutral detergent (such as diluted sugar soap). Sprat type cleaners that contain solvents may affect the surface appearance and the paints longevity.

  • Always test the cleaning method in an inconspicuous area to ensure it does not damage the paint finish
  • Do not vigorously scrub the surface, or use an abrasive cleaning product or tool - a micro fibre cloth works well

How do I maintain my exterior paint finish?

Maintain your exterior paint finish by washing every 12 months (after each winter is a great time) with a suitable exterior cleaner to remove dirt deposits. Dirt deposits left on the paint surface will encourage the growth of mould and affect the paints performance.

  • While cleaning, attend to any areas of flaking paint, rotten timber, moss, mould and lichen
  • Most exterior house cleaners and detergent have negative effects on marine life, so avoid run off into storm water drains
