Sherwin Williams Duration and Mildew
Planning to paint exterior stucco with Sherwin Williams Duration and just heard that it mildews (black, nasty stuff that is difficult to remove) within two years. The stucco is on the shady side of house, so now afraid to use Duration. Anyone have any thots or recommendations? Ben Moore Aura a better choice?

Just have them add midicide additive to prevent this at the paint store.

Porter makes an exterior product PorterSept that I have used myself here in SW florida that has a 7 year mildew warrenty. I did a house on the water here that had a lot of shade and foilage around the house where on two sides of the home mildew was a huge problem. After talking to my sales rep he recommended this and after 5 years it has no sign of mildew. The owner is very pleased with it because he had tried everything and nothing lasted more than a couple of years....
