I'm in the process of renovating my first property in Arlington, Tx and it's getting to the time for me to paint the exterior. I'm wondering what type of paint you would recommend that will withstand the Texas weather without being over the top expensive. I'm using Sherwin Williams Super paint for the interior. I was planning to use Sherwin Williams for the exterior as well. One contractor that I've gotten a quote from says that they use the A-100 paint for investors. Which makes me worried that this is his code for "the cheap paint". Can anyone recomend a good paint type to use in Texas weather and possibly chime in on how good the A-100 exterior paint is?
I'd love to hear what you guys use and prefer, as well as what paint is worth the price and what is simply more expensive than it's worth.
Thanks for the input!
Just talk to your Sherwin Williams rep. Their paint is clearly marked for exterior/interior for the same reasons you're looking.
Alex, I am a painting contractor in NY. We have been using Sherwin-Williams Duration exterior on all of our exterior work for the past 15 years. Its a great product, a bit more expensive but worth it. I use it on my painting jobs as well as my flips.
