is there a smoother exterior paint than SW Duration
I just painted a porch using SW Duration semi-gloss. Having read here the importance of applying thickly, I did so. The good news was that it covered well. The bad news was because it's so thick, it left very obvious brush marks, even on smooth wood. I also had to clean my brush a couple of times while applying because it got so goopy. I expect a certain amount of brush marks and don't mind them, but these seem more obvious and the paint takes a while to apply.
I have heard good things about Benjamin Moore and California for exterior (sounds like everyone has a preference but these are all in the top). Does anyone know if these apply a smoother coat, with less brush marks?
