Finally found exterior color, weatherbeater brand?

elschOctober 13, 2010

Hi there everyone. I have searched long and hard for a gray blue color to paint the exterior of my house. driving today I saw a house color I liked which spouse actually also liked. Fortunately the owner was outside and remembered the name of the paint and even gave me an empty can.

My question is, it is OSH Weatherbeater brand, so I am wondering if it is a good quality. I'd rather not get it color matched because I want it to be exactly this color. Is this an ok quality paint? Ir looked fine on the house I saw, so is it a bad idea to use it?

Find a retailer, like OSH (a Sears subsidiary).

Some Sears locations are phasing-out paint. Check around on the ol' 'Net.

The paint itself is fine, assuming you buy the top grade of it.
PREP is king however!! Make sure your home is cleaned, DRY, repaired, primed....and using TWO coats of paint.

Thanks Faron, I ended up having it color matched at Kelly Moore.
