Exterior Painting in progress - might need to change sheen
Hey paint experts - we finally decided on SW Duration in satin for our wood siding. The first coat went on yesterday and boy is it much shinier than we imagined. The imperfections in our siding are pretty obvious. We are have two options:
1. Have the painters finish the project with the satin paint since it's already purchased
2. Buy new paint in flat so there isn't a glare and our imperfections don't stand out as much.
I can live with the shine of the satin *if* it will lessen over time. A couple of my friends used a satin on their brick exteriors and their paint really does look flat now. But, will that happen with wood siding???
All of my research, including the question I posed here, seems to point to using satin over flat. Now my question is -- will the shine lessen over time?
THANKS A TON!
