Exterior Paint: Duration, Superpaint, Manor Hall, or Timeless?

Posted by mwe_writer (My Page) on

The exterior of our house desperately needs repainting, so we've gotten bids from a few contractors. Each one gave us an estimate for a couple of different paints of his choosing. Now, we're trying to figure out which of the paints would be best.

We live in a mostly dry desert climate that does get rain and snow in the winter. Temps range from about 5 degrees (winter) to 115 degrees (July). Sun/fading is an issue.

We'd like to keep the cost down, of course, but want to get a paint that actually lasts (unlike the stuff that's on our house now, which started peeling after just a year).

We're leaning toward one of two contractors who recommend Sherwin-Williams Superpaint or Duration, or Pittsburgh Manor Hall or Timeless. I've read quite a bit on this forum about Superpaint and Duration (most seem to like those) but not much about Manor Hall or Timeless.

Which of these paints do you recommend and why? Is the Duration or Timeless worth the extra cost over the Superpaint or Manor Hall?

(I tried posting this question before, but it apparently wasn't added to the forum. If a duplicate shows up, I apologize!)

I love using Manor hall timeless, Sherwin Williams has gone to making not so good products with higher price tags, ten years ago they were excellent, PPG Timeless actually does what duration claims to do. I usually disreguard the price and go for the better product. Muralo's Endure is close to Timeless also and is $5.00 cheaper to, but its your home and why not take some pride in it.
California makes a great product also, there 2010 line is very good for harsh climents (New England) mainly but still is another quality brand.
Good luck

Thanks for the advice! We're leaning toward using Timeless.
