Summer is right around the corner; the weather is finally opening up the outdoors. Now is the time to consider a refresh of your home’s exterior with a fresh coat of paint. When considering exterior paint or stain for your home or deck, choosing the right high-quality finish will provide a long-lasting look and protection for your home.
When looking for high-quality exterior paints, there are a few factors to consider such as the durability, weather resistance, and color retention. Here are some of the top exterior paints that are known for their quality and performance:
- Sherwin Williams Latitude and Benjamin Moore Element Guard are two top choices. Both of these finishes utilize 100% acrylic resins, which are renowned for their resistance to moisture and humidity, as well as exhibiting great color and gloss retention. These finishes also help to combat mold and mildew growth, and are breathable, so they won’t trap damaging moisture.
- Benjamin Moore Ultra Spec Elastomeric Finish are great choices if you’re looking to protect masonry surfaces such as stucco,& elastomeric finishes. These are waterproof finishes that bridge hairline cracks, and seal the porosity of the surface. They are also designed to be breathable, and help keep the surface looking clean by reducing water penetration and resisting dirt pick-up.
- Sherwin Williams Woodscapes and Benjamin Moore Arborcoat are two top choices in the stain market for both siding and decks. With stains, there are many different formulations and levels of opacity from which to choose. It’s important that you discuss your needs with your Nolan Painting representative, who will help you make the best possible choice.
When choosing a high-quality exterior paint, it’s important to consider the specific needs of your project, such as the climate and conditions in the Greater Philadelphia area (think of snow, sleet, high humidity, and UV rays in the summer, etc.) as well as the color and finish you’re looking for.
