quality exterior house paint

Posted by justme48 (My Page) on

I'm looking for a quality exterior paint for white (wood) trim on my house.
I'm expecting to pay $40 - 60 a gallon.
Anyone have experience with these, or other brands?

We have used a few others .... but the best luck we've had is with Pratt & Lambert (it's their top line, starts with an "A") ... wood siding, still good after 12 years in Michigan.

We bought PPG Pittsburgh Paints Manor Hall® Timeless®
Got a good deal - $55/gallon on sale for $29.

RE: quality exterior house paint

I also are in the process of picking paint for the exterior. I love Pratt and Lambert. We live in So. Ca. so fading is an issue for me. The painters in our area use Dunn Edwards, like it or not. The painter assumes I'll use their stock color for my white trim which is Swiss Coffee. Is this the usual that they make your choice for you?
