My contractor thinks Dunn-Edwards, I thought the new Behr.
What about it?

I would say that Sherwin Williams Duration is an excellent exterior paint choice. House Painting

Can anyone tell me if it is better to go with acrylic paint or elastromeric paint for a STUCCO building, very close to the ocean?

What's your recommendation for painting a porch that's already had two coats on? I'd like to have one that's primer and paint all in one. [email protected]

I can say about 3 years ago I did a large test area on the side of my house with ace exterior paint. It still looks real good, I did not prime it. Recently I tested Behr premium ultra, one spot with 3 coats, one spot with a primer and two coats. My husband has has said the ace looks way better and I agree. Only had used 2 coats of the ace.

Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams is an excellent choice of paint and using the best paint is smart, Dunn-Edwards is a very old brand and they used to make the absolute best if they haven't been bought out. As a contractor 35 years I have not been happy with the longevity of the BEHR as the others on my finished homes.

I put a second story on our house and used hardi lap Siding for the exterior, what paint would you recommend for the first paint job ? it's pre primed , I've caulked all butt joints and window and corner joints, I also used an exterior nail hole filler on my trim pieces, were in Southern California so the weather is fairly mild .

I have used most brands that are available on the market and I couldn't find one better than Sherwin William's Duration. I operate my painting business in Florida where the UV rays are higher than most states and it rains extremely hard. The problem I had with other products was fading that would occur in less than 5 years. Remember just because a paint goes on thick doesn't mean it will retain its color or won't crack and chip. I wouldn't use any other product outside of Sherwin Williams, they have been the easiest to work with and they have last the longest. If you look at the market they are the one who are coming out with a lot of the break through technowlogies because they invest a lot of their money into research.

BTW Home Depot and Lowes products are the worst when it comes to fading.
