What Makes A Good Exterior Paint?


Latex-based exterior paints are generally the best choice for outdoor painting projects like a home’s walls and trim. Latex paints dry quickly, imperfections caught during the process are easy to clean, and latex paint expands and contracts well with seasonal temperature changes.


Oil-based paints used to be the go-to choice for exterior projects for many years, but the recent technological advancements made in water-based paints makes them the overall better choice. Acrylic paint is the most durable of all. It’s long-lasting, flexible, and able to withstand fading from the sun or damage from rain and other elements.
