How do I paint my ModularWalls?

First, a bit of housekeeping. To ensure your paint goes the distance, ensure you’re choosing an exterior grade paint, such as Dulux Weathershield. Exterior paints are specifically formulated to withstand the elements, which is key to your paint job performing its best while protecting your modular fence beneath.

That being said, also be sure to paint ModularWalls within 30 days of installation, as per our warranty. Why? Our fences come in a ‘primed’ state, ready for your wall finish of choice. However, if left exposed to the elements for more than 30 days, this ‘primed’ state is compromised, affecting your painting success and, possibly, the integrity of your fence materials.
