Use the 'search' bar on this site. There are many many threads about this subject and as many opinions about what is best. Time to start reading.

Exterior Paint


Any 100% acrylic latex from a paint store and not a box store. Sherwin Williams or Ben Moore.

The BEST?!

FPE hands down.

Do you want to pay for it?!??!? Probably not.

Your prep-work though is maybe more important than the actual paint.

The best all around exterior paint, as far as performance and price, with a lifetime warranty (and you're not paying over a hundred dollars per gallon) is Pratt and Lamberts Accolade line. Check it out, it's got many great reviews, but remember, the key to any good paint lasting is an excellent prep job!

My personal favorite is Sherwin-Williams SuperPaint. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles, but, for the money it's dependable, long-lasting, & it just plain does the job. I especially like their Satin finish for exteriors. On a budget, I don't mind using Valspar paints from Lowe's.

Super Paint is one of my favorites too. We have used it for years and use it on most of our exteriors. Covers well, hides, easy to apply, durable and last. I've used it on 100s of exteriors and have never had a problem.
