Keep it cooler

24 Feb 2016

Resene Lumbersider CoolColour has a nifty purpose... it combines Resene's gorgeous dark colours with a special formula to keep the coating cooler even during peak summer.

This means you can specify dark colours for your exterior while reducing the effect of heat adding extra stress to weatherboards, roofing and deck substrates.

Above, homeowners Fraser and Sandy gave their 1980s bungalow a makeover in Resene Lumbersider CoolColour in Resene Bokara Grey. This allows for stylish steps for Dobby, their Italian greyhound, to run up and down without burning his paws. See the rest of the house here

Resene CoolColour can be used on all sorts of materials, from wood to concrete to windowsills, and can also be added to the Resene Waterborne Woodsman range of penetrating oil stains.

The product is available from your local Resene ColorShop and selected resellers. Visit
