Make sure you use a high-quality exterior paint specifically designed for park homes.

Resitex, maker of thermoplastic paints and finishes and primers, makes paint specifically designed for park and holiday homes.

Resifine is a DIY product and the recommended application is by brush or roller. It’s a mixture of flexible resins and powders which makes up a coating that controls mould.

Resitex says that, even in exposed conditions, Resifine will cover cracks and fill minor holes. You can use it on timber and many park and holiday home textured surfaces. It’s available in various colours.

Other products on the market include Remmers Color Flex. This is a water-repellent paint developed for park homes. Centrecoat is a water-based paint that offers a semi-gloss finish and is available in a range of colours.

Prestige Developments has a range of textured exterior paints and coatings designed specifically for park homes. The company's Textured Exterior Paint has a resin formula that has anti-mould properties. It gives a matt, smooth finish and can be applied over cracks. You can buy Prestige Developments paints for DIY use, or Prestige Developments can paint your park home for you.

Park Home Doctors offers a refurbishing service that includes sealing and painting. The company says its refurbishing programme means that you will not need to repaint your park home for up to 15 years, rather than the usual period of around three to five years. The programme involves sealing any cracks that may allow water to enter the park home.

One of the biggest names in park homes manufacturing, Omar, has a division called Omar Refurbishment Services. Among the services offered is exterior finish refurbishments. The finish is highly weatherproof and comes in a variety of colours to complement your park home.

How much does it cost to paint a park home?

Clearly that depends firstly on the size of the park home and whether you are going it paint it yourself or call in one of the specialist companies that offer this service. It also depends on the condition of the existing paint and how much preparation work needs to be done. Our research shows costs of between £1,000 and £5,000.

How often should you paint a park home?

Standard advice is every three to five years, to ensure the best protection from the elements, as well as to keep your park home looking fresh!

Best paints for park homes
