My guess like was mentioned was a cheap flat paint was used and perhaps over thinned, or an incompatible tint was used perhaps on site, ot different paints were boxed together.

A guy I used to work for would buy mistint paints for super cheap from Kwall and adjust the color himself to close to whatever if the homeowner was good with close to the existing color and really never had any issues.
But one house at the entry street to a neighborhood we did a lot of work in started fading on the 2nd year and 5 years later they had another company repaint it when our jobs usually lasted great for 8 to 10 years.

We never knew why we had the color failure but it bothered us everytime we drove by the house cause we were the best in the area.

Bottom line is that a repaint is going to have to happen. Use the most fade resistant paint available, Benjamin Moore's Aura - it's designed to be colorfast in the deep base colors. It costs more, but you won't have unhappy customers in 3 years.

I've seen SuperPaint fade drastically within 3 years on a darker green, but that brown . . . wow. In all fairness, there's a reason why paint is tested using S Florida exposure. It's one of the worst environments. Too bad none of the manufacturers warrant against fade. Just peeling & blistering. And for those that, on a special occasion, do provide a fade warranty, it's so loose (like 1-2 delta is acceptable) that it wouldn't matter anyway. Just a worthless piece of paper really.

Use a high quality Ben Moore product. I have a Cardinal Red that hasn't noticeably shifted in several years and had a recent firehouse repaint (red) that had to be redone due to Timeless fading as well.

Benmoore and Cali are the only companies not using glycol based colorants
