Default SW WHite

Have about 5 miles of trim to paint (OK...only about 3 miles). The current color is SW Superpaint Gloss white.

Not too familiar with SW products. Is this the best or should I switch to something better from SW?

Edit to add: This is exterior trim.....gutters and fascia

Super paint is a good all around paint, it's not as hard as PC but if you don't need that, it will be fine. PC has a learning curve,and SP does not.

How does the standard white cover? I mean it is white over white correct? If its in good shape, I'd stick with the same product, maybe you'll get it in one coat.

Depending on how many gallons you need and whats in the budget. Super Paint is good stuff. I been using it for years. But, its not quite SWs top of the line. That would be "Duration" and would give you better coverage.

Sp, Resilience, Duration or Aura. You can use any of them but I would stick with the Superpaint, the white will probably be a much closer match then the others. I know Duration Ext White is a bit gray in comparison to some other exterior paints.

Your head will hurt if you use the pro classic. A lot. There is a very strong ammonia odor and I always feel terrible after using it. Oh, and after you get crazy high laying it out you'll have to go back and sand out all the sages and drips and recoat your three miles of trim. It is especially susceptible in humid conditions; much more so than other paints. It does powder nicely tho. I second Low voc sologloss at $25 a gallon. It's interior/exterior!

You recommend Sologloss over Duration?

Where can I get Sologloss in Portland?

Thanks.

Sologloss is a Sherwin Williams product, we use it all the time, it is regional, but you should have it in Portland.

yesterday was the last straw for me and SW. I did a couple calls to compare pricing between sw and my bm dealer. sw won't do any better pricing o their 200 or proclassic. they both are about $5 bucks a gallon more than super spec / satin impervo wb, and $10 more than the gold line from pratt and L. Maybe its because I don't buy exclusive and so I don't have the volume. I don't care what the reason is. If my bm and p&l dealer want to help me save money, then they will get my business. The only time I'm going to do business with SW again is if I absolutely have to. Other than that, they are gone.
