Most exterior painters’ quotes consist of Sherwin-Williams Super Paint. But why is this particular paint favored by so many paint contractors? Simple! Super Paint is a price point product. This type of product makes the bottom line look low on each estimate. Super paint is not a bad exterior paint, but a better product in most cases will be more rewarding for the long haul.
Here is how Sherwin-Williams Resilience prevails! It can be applied by brush or sprayed. We have found this product to dry evenly and not show lap marks. Most exterior paints show exactly where you have started and stopped while spraying. Resilience minimizes these unsightly marks. This product also has exceptional resistance to moisture. A heavy rain could ruin the cosmetics and sheen of most paints. Particularly, if rain accrues directly after application. In most cases, an additive call glycol takes a while to make its way out of the paint coating. If moisture in excess amounts comes into contact with the paint film before additives have fully dissipated, it could potentially cause water marks. Resilience is design to not show the additives leaching even if there were an evening shower. In turn, it allows for an extremely uniform topcoat, especially in satin finishes.
The questions of paint quality are among the top questions that painting contractors are asked. Exterior painters always have their own opinion and preferred brand. The market for innovative paint and applications is steadily growing. There are products that are released nationally and just simple for specific regions. So, naturally not each exterior house painter is going to have identical answers. In conclusion, the better question is why your contractor is pushing a particular product?
