Exterior painting is a relatively straightforward process, but so much of your painter’s performance determines how long the paint will last. In conjunction with using premium paints from Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams, we ensure a process that allows for thick, durable paint coats free from drips, sags, and streaks. Our painting service guarantees a uniform paint finish that strengthens weather resistance and will wow you.

The Best Exterior Paint Brands for Cary, NC

Most local exterior painters in Cary, NC, use Sherwin-Williams paint, but some lines of SW paint and finishes are better than others. We use Sherwin-Williams Latitude on most exterior siding and Sherwin-Williams Duration on the trim. While we are not married to those products, we do find the best value and results while using them. 

The best exterior paints often include satin and gloss finishes, offering added moisture protection and lasting a bit longer. When painting doors, windows, and exterior trim, house paints containing some level of sheen will always stay just a touch longer, limiting mold, mildew growth, and paint oxidation.

The Longest Lasting Exterior Painting Services

In our experience, homes are not painted frequently enough and often have low-end exterior paint. Once the indications of paint wear are present, your home is already overdue for repainting. Cracking, blistering, peeling, and chalking indicate that the protection offered by your existing paint finish is diminishing, offering little to no protection.

On average, exterior paint on homes in Cary, NC, holds up for at least 5-10 years, depending on paint quality and how many coats were initially applied. Using premium paint is also crucial in how long the finish will last.

Spraying House Paint vs. Brushing in Cary

There are several advantages to spraying vs. brushing. Spraying offers a uniform topcoat in satin finishes, which are usually more durable. Spraying also allows you to change colors while minimizing the coats required, reducing labor costs.

Exterior painters who provide hand brushing also provide an advantage. In certain situations, hand brushing helps to protect delaminating siding and seal heavily textured surfaces. However, hand brushing often shows unsightly lap marks and requires applying flat paint to prevent the marks when brush painting siding.

When asked which one is better, there’s no simple answer. We will provide feedback after viewing the areas, offering professional recommendations based on what is needed to achieve the best results while factoring your needs.

Conveniently Take Advantage of Our Additional Exterior Home Services
