A few years ago when we painted our house (which was just two years
old at the time...) we decided to change the colors. We wanted a
white house, with a terra-cotta red trim to match the tinted concrete
on our new front patio. We looked at a bunch of paint swatches, and
choose the one that matched it best.

Two weeks later, we look at the final paint color, and it is bright
red! Seems the color we had picked was a SW color, but the paint the
contractor used was Frazee. When they did whatever color matching to
that chip, they really messed up. Our neighbors were furious! With
that clean white and bright red, we stood out in a neighborhood of
neutral beiges and grays. On the other hand, when we saw it, we
really, really liked it!
Blame it on your electronic color reader :-)

When we painted our house 14 years ago we tried green as trim for the
gable boards and stuff. Looked at it ... *YUCK* ... got rid of that real
quick.
Actually, after having this color for five years, the only thing I
would change would be to paint the eaves red as well!

The wrath of the whole neighborhood will come upon you if you do that :-)

They tried that last time! We don't actually have an HOA, but the
builder (and the community was still under construction then) did have
a sorta HOA written into the contracts. They sent him several
complaints, and because he was in the middle of a fight with the
planning commision at the time, he actually listened to him. However,
we supported him in his fight (and had some clout with the city that
made this useful) while the complaintants were all fighting him on
that front as well, so he supported us!


Ah, the good old political game. Just like it plays out over and over
here in Sacramento :-)

Of course, he never did get to build any more houses, even with the
updated plans. The market was just too bad then. I keep expecting
him to start back up any time now...


Yup. We now have the sequel, housing bubble #2 is coming up. It is now
rather clear that people in government neither understanding nor willing
to learn these things.

Hi Folks,

Time to paint the house again but the local brands have changed a lot.
Last time was around 14 years ago, and we used Kelly Moore back then.
First their Elastocote and then Latex paint. It held up good but now
some areas suddenly turned bright white, I guess from the intense sun.

Nowadays the locally available brands are Sherwin Williams and Benjamin
Moore from the local paint store, or Behr from Home Depot. Kelly Moore
would require a trip but that's ok if that paint is still the best. I
think the toughest enemy for paint on our house is the hot summer sun.
Not so much the rain because of the rather large roof overhang.

Any opinions? What say thee?

Joerg I'm late to this thread, and I don't live in a hot climate.
But I've been using stains, rather than paints on my wood structures,
and so far I'm very pleased. The barn soaked up many gallons of stain
10+ years ago, and still looks OK. The garage got stained. The house
is (mostly) covered in plastic. There's some pealing latex covered
woodwork here and there, and I'm thinking about staining it :^)
(I get my stain in 5 gal. buckets.)


Yeah, stain holds up a lot better than paint but often has the downside
of being quite flammable. Which is a concern in this area.

Also, once something is painted you cannot stain. I did sand down the
whole big deck here in order to get the dreaded paint of and be able to
stain it. Took me three weeks. I don't want to ever do that again in
this earthly life.

I used a Behr wood stain that I got at HD. Water clean-up which is a
plus.
So not flammable. If it didn't say stain on the can I would have had
a hard time telling it from a paint.

Grin, I guess I let 'things' get a bit seedier before painting, so
mother nature has done most of the 'scraping' for me.

Sherwin-Williams always works as advertized and it's
priced slightly less than Benjamin Moore. They always
sell it for less than the list price, will probably let
that $55/gal Duration go for $35. I've seen the Behr
self-priming in action and am less than impressed with
it, you will end up using twice as much and it still
looks bad. Actually wouldn't trust any claims of
self-priming and prime it anyway whichever paint you use,
depends on your standards.I'm pretty sure S-W is the
product of choice of the big contractors, they have every
imaginable application of paint covered.
We won't need to prime since there is already paint on the
house. It's not peeling or anything, just sun-bleached. Our
paint store doesn't give discounts but that's ok, I am
more concerned that it's good stuff so it lasts maybe a bit
longer than the 14 years the Kelly Moore lasted. Meantime,
the paints my wife found rated as good: Pittsburgh Manor
Hall Timeless Pittsburgh Sunproof Latex Exterior Benjamin
Moor Aura Waterborne Exterior But maybe S-W is the way to
go and some web links corroborate what you said:

The only thing I don't like is that it's a self-prime
thick paint. We don't need to prime. -- Regards, Joerg
http://www.analogconsultants.com/
The Pittsburgh products look good, but I never see them come
up in reviews.
I haven't either. Meantime I've scoped out S-W Duration a bit
and there seem to be some issues with it, mostly because of its
thickness and quick drying time:
http://jackpauhl.blogspot.com/2007/10/duration-exterior.html We
normally use a roller but this paint doesn't seem to like that
technique. Our siding has these typical vertical recesses that
must be painted by brush and then the other person rolls the
surfaces. Afraid that S-W Duration might be clumping a lot when
the roller meets the brush-painted areas. -- Regards, Joerg
http://www.analogconsultants.com/
I don't trust that review. I've used their interior Superpaint
which had the same complaints, it's not that thick and it's easy
to apply, but it does set up fast, so you don't want to go over
anything that's been in place for more than a few minutes, you
need to let it completely dry first. Your siding just means you
cut-in all the recessed grooves on the first day and hit the
flats on the second.




It's not the only review like that I saw. But for the Pittsburgh

Sunproof I can't find any such detailed reviews.



Doing the recesses one day and the rest the next day is fine, as
long as

the Duration exterior paint can be rolled.

LOL- those people are exaggerating about it being like mayonnaise.


Well, most are folks who professionally paint since decades. They must
know a thing or two.

Latex paint (all I suspect) is, by design, a non-Newtonian fluid. It's
intended to be "heavy" so it doesn't run off the wall onto the floor
(and off the brush onto your shoe). When you apply pressure from the
brush or roller the molecules "shear" causing it to go on smoothly.
The better the paint the more non-Newtonian.

One vote for Benjamin Moore. Duration, if you can afford it.

One thing I learned long ago is that when you paint, prepare the surface
first. Rough up or remove old paint. Use a primer if you're not sure.

My next door neighbor uses Glidden. He goes about 10 years per exterior
paint job in Rancho Cordova. So i tried it, about 3 years and it still
looks fresh.

Well wathcha painting? Wood, stucco, concrete, brick, synthetic
siding?




Oops, sorry, wood siding. But it wouldn't matter much because there
is

already the Elastocote and the old Kelly Moore paint underneath,
which

even with serious power-washing effort won't come off.



So in essence we'd be painting paint :-)

All that said, Caltrans prefers Dunn-Edwards (Would you like to talk with
one of their experts?). In all cases pressure wash (or have it done) your
walls first.

As long as it doesn't pop like the bolts on the Bay Bridge :-)

I guess Caltrans uses them also because they are local. Some people give
it mixed opinions though:

http://www.contractortalk.com/f8/ever-heard-dunn-edwards-paint-6835/

What I see over and over is that contractors favor Benjamin Moore. Much
more so than SW. And not so much Kelly Moore either for some reason
(that used to be the real favorite 15 years ago and it's what we bought
back then).

Oh, we'll definitely do that. Those are the days when I shower in the
evening instead of the morning :-)
