Does anybody have any comments on the following exterior house paints?

I live in the St. Louis, Missouri area, and was getting estimates for a house painting job.
Thanks

Do an archive search here on best house paints. And Consumer Reports, too. There are some pretty poor products out there and most painters don't care much beyond what goes on fast and looks good so they can get on to the next job. They warranty their labor, not the paint, so you should choose a long lived product based on more than hearsay. HTH

An acquaintance contracted with a painter, and she was to provide whatever paint she wanted. She wanted "the best", got Porter. After two coats to a small area, the painter pointed out that it needed a third coat. She went over to WalMart, got paint, and took the unopened cans back to Porter, and got a very satisfactory paint job. No endorsements expressed or implied, just telling the story.

ICI paints are pretty good. Very thick, heavy non-drip paints.
Just mho.
