How to choose the right surface finish

Choose the right product

Your location and site conditions determine the performance requirements of your surface finish. Assess your project’s needs, particularly if you’re in a coastal area.

Find the right colour

We offer a comprehensive range of 35 popular colours so there’s something to suit your home. You can also ask your manufacturer about colour options not in the popular range.

Chat to your local manufacturer

Consult with your local First manufacturer for further advice and to request a colour swatch. A word to the wise: when you are making your final colour selection, assess an aluminium colour swatch in natural light.
