Paint, and all of the products used when painting, are at the very core of Albany.

At every Albany store you will find all of the leading brands of paint at competitive prices… but, more importantly, you will find staff who know about paint – how it is made, how to use it, what primers are required, where to use different finishes. At Albany you will be given advice on how to deal with problems and help with making decisions on choice of colours.

As the leading paint specialists in Ireland we have our very own range of high quality paints. Albany paint provides a comprehensive range of finishes and preparations for every trade and home application.

Painting is one of the home decorating tasks most commonly undertaken by the home owner. It is relatively easy to achieve very satisfactory and pleasing results – provided proper care is given to preparation and to the use of the proper tools and materials. However, for the beginner terms like primers, matt, soft sheen, eggshell, etc., can sound confusing and intimidating. The information on this website should explain the skill of painting different surfaces in uncomplicated language. There are examples  and descriptions for easy identification of the tasks you may be undertaking. If you need further help, your local Albany store will be pleased to advise and, if necessary or appropriate, source technical support.
