Exterior paint suggestion

What' brand(s) do you like? I'm looking for good hiding power and long-lasting. Price isn't important.
Everything - siding, fascia, soffits - has been cleaned by a combination of powerwashing and scrubbing with Simple Green and bleach where necessary.
House is in N.J., which means that the yearly temperature range is about 10F to 95F. Maximum direct sun exposure of any side is less that five hours/day. Siding color will be in the sand/beige/taupe family. Decorative window shutters will be forest green. Fascia and soffits will be white.
Thanks.
Ray

Devoe and Martin-Senour are the best paints I've ever used. You'll need to find a hardware or paint specialty store that carries them. I don't recall ever seeing them at the big home improvement stores. The quality is fabulous.

After power washing(2 day dry) My place I added 1 packet per gal of mold/mildew resistor to Sherwin Williams satin ext Superpaint. I think SW said it was acrylic and would expand/contract with temp changes. Dean

I painted last year with California brand, because it was rated the highest by Consumer Reports, at least at that time. I used their oil based primer with their Freshcoat Velvet Flat for the clapboards, and their Satin Gloss for the trim. It's pnly been a year, but it looks fabulous. It was a dream to use, too. Best paint I've ever used. It was pricey, but worth it, if it lasts the 10 years CR says it should. I'm in upstate NY.

My opinion of Behr is the opposite: it is a poor paint. It does not cover well, and the colors are ugly. For the same price, I have found that Valspar from Lowe's performs and looks far better. And for exterior paint, I go with the real top-of-the-line brands, like Benjamin Moore or Muralo.

I had just the opposite experience - Valspar satin enamel was so difficult to work with that I changed to Behr. The Behr satin enamel spread very well, gets top ratings from Consumer Reports, and was well liked by the professional painter I hired to do some doors.
As far as colors go, pretty much any paint store can match any other brand's colors.

Benjamin Moore, Prat and Lambert and Sherwin Williams, Sherwin Willaims has the only paint I know that bonds to dirt and is recommended for aluminum siding, it used to be warranted for life but alot of people were painting the metal when hot and having issues.
