Concern with Exterior Paint Fading


I am making plans to side my house with Hardieplank. The advice I am seeing on the forums is to buy the Hardieplank primed and then paint it after installation. I want the paint to last as long as possible and, therefore, want to minimize fading. What is your experience with fading based on color or based on paint brand?

Concern with Exterior Paint Fading


Stick with medium to light colors. Go with either Ben Moore Aura or Sherwin Williams Duration. Here is Portland Oregon we have Miller Paint, they have a line called Evolution, it is also really good, but I would specify that they use 896 colorant to tint the paint, this will significantly reduce fading.
