Sherwin Williams Duration is an acrylic exterior paint available in flat, satin and gloss finishes. It does not require a separate primer, applies smoothly and dries quickly. This paint also meets federal guidelines for volatile organic compound emissions.
Behr Premium Plus is another highly rated exterior paint. It comes in flat, satin and semi-gloss finishes. The flat finish is particularly popular for use on vinyl siding, wood, brick and masonry because it reduces the visibility of small imperfections.
