Exterior painting


Is Rodda paint for exteriors better than or equal to Sherwin Williams--particularly in the Northwest

I have never heard of it. I prefer oil based paint on an exterior.

Rodda has a good reputation. Many of their products are approved by MPI.

I don't know what time zone you're in but, down here it's still winter. Even the best exterior paint can produce poor results in poor conditions.Best wait for longer days and shorter (Dryer) nights.

Oil paints are all but extinct. A quality latex lasts longer than any of the current oil formulations. Still like a good oil for some trim work where an extremely HIGH GLOSS is needed but that's about it.
