When you trust a company to paint your home it is important to know what products the painter will use. The quality of the paint and materials used can have a significant impact on the appearance and longevity of the finished product. At J&J Painting, we partner with different paint companies to deliver excellence. This article will share a review of the Sherwin Williams products we use and why we use them.
Sherwin Williams Emerald Rain Refresh: $121 / Gallon
We like to use Sherwin-Williams Emerald Rain Refresh. This high-quality exterior paint is designed to provide long-lasting protection against harsh weather conditions. The Emerald Rain Refresh paint features a self-cleaning formula that helps prevent dirt and grime from accumulating on the surface, making it easier to maintain its appearance. With a simple power wash, families can keep the exterior of their home looking new. It also resists fading, cracking, and peeling, even in extreme temperatures.
Sherwin Williams Emerald Exterior Price: $98 / Gallon
Next up is Sherwin Williams Emerald Exterior Paint. This paint is self-priming and resists blistering, peeling, fading and mildew. The Emerald Exterior holds its sheen very well and is ideal for restoring a house that has been severely damaged or faded.
Sherwin Williams Duration Price: $93 / Gallon
Another top pick for us is, Sherwin Williams Duration Exterior Paint. It works well at concealing flaws, especially if the home is badly weathered. The Duration collection contains antimicrobial agents that inhibit the growth of mold and mildew on paint surfaces, enhancing moisture resistance. This paint line has the PermaLast® technology that helps the paint to last longer than typical paints.
Sherwin Williams Resilience Price: $84 / Gallon
The Resilience Exterior Paint is another one of our favorites. It is ideal for unpredictable weather. Sherwin Williams Resilience can be used to paint surfaces in temperatures as low 35 degrees. Resilience is a high-quality exterior paint that holds color very well and resistant to mold and mildew, and it dries pretty quickly.
Sherwin Williams SuperPaint Exterior Price: $73 / Gallon
Sherwin Williams SuperPaint is what we use when a budget-friendly option is needed. This paint provides good coverage, but it is not long-lasting. We recommend this paint for rental properties, or if your Homeowners Association requires a repaint often. The SuperPaint lasts about 4-5 years.
Quality Paint Can Save Money Over Time
Think about this…
If you prefer value and like to save money in the long run consider investing in more quality paint for your home.
If ordinary paint costs $25 per gallon and you need 20 gallons to paint ($500) and the labor is $2500, the total cost is $3000 to paint your home. If this budget-friendly paint only lasts four years the cost per year would be $750.
If you decide to use quality acrylic paint at, let’s say, $50 per gallon, it would cost $1000 when you purchase the same 20 gallons needed. With the labor still being $2500, the total cost would be $3500. The cost per year for this paint would drop to $350 per year since the paint can last 10 years or more. The figures above are examples only.
At the end of the day, the most important decision you will make when deciding on a paint or painting contractor is to ensure that your home is protected from premature deterioration. We hope this post has helped to build a meaningful dialogue in that direction. To get a customized quote for your next home improvement project, contact J&J Painting.
