How many shades of grey?

Weber UK

Super chic and totally modern, grey is the colour of the moment. Grey exteriors are now a staple in any discerning homeowner, self-builder or architect’s palette with the colour being a key element across numerous architectural looks and styles. 

Grey is an on-trend yet timeless colour for any facade, it can channel both edgy modern and charming classic. Grey can be used liberally as a statement colour — check out how webersil TF in Welsh Slate defines this modern self-build — but it's more commonly being used as a neutral base instead of the standard Cream or Ivory. Take a look at how this commercial refurbishment in Dublin has been improved using webertherm M1 in Pearl Grey with Stone Grey detailing.

Painting or rendering the exterior of a building is a big undertaking. If you're unsure, consider using it as a feature panel on an elevation which is contained and easy to repaint if you don't love it. You could even consider a band of weberwall brick in Sanded Slate, offering colour, texture and architectural detailing.

Each shade of grey is capable of creating a different look, feel and style in a building.

Different textures are also available – from a traditional tyrolean finish with a high texture compared to the scraped back finish of a modern monocouche render.

Take a look at this contemporary grand design below which uses weberpral M in Pearl Grey.
