Almost 30yrs ago I was introduced to a somewhat unknown, and perhaps region
al, paint brand, BLP Mobile. I mentioned it to a painter who was a parishi
oner of mine and it was evident he did not like it. But his comment told m
e why, the major brands went on smoother and easier. However, the guy acro
ss the street from our house has been using it and had painted three walls
of his house a year apart. You could not tell the four yr old paint from t
he one year old. THAT is saying something here is the soggy and moldy Sou
We (I) forgot to specify when we built our house, back in 92 and the builde
r used Sherwin-Williams. It looked great, but started having serious milde
w problems a couple of years later. We washed it down several times and fi
nally had to have it repainted. I insisted the painter put on two coats of
Kilns and then two coats of BLP Mobile. That was about eight or nine year
s ago. While we still need to wash (not pressure wash) the porch a couple
of times a year, we do not have a mildew problem.
So, if you live in a high humidity area, you might give it a try.
I hadn't been entirely pleased with the Sears WeatherBeater (long ago) or the other later (don't recall) paint. Which one is the house paint you would recommend?
Well, this is worth knowing. It's been close to 20 years since
I painted my house, and it's due in a year or two. I painted
with Dulux, which is no longer available in the US (and the
brand changed owners anyway, and I didn't think the product
available after the change was as good before they stopped
selling in the US). So Benjamin Moore may be the new choice.
Depends what you are painting. I was very satisfied with Benjamin
Moore Regal Moore-glo on my aluminum siding. It is a" 100% Acrylic
fortified with advanced alkyd technology for superior adhesion,
especially to chalky substrates. Tinted on our proprietary Gennex
colorant system, these mildew-resistant, high solids coatings are
designed to deliver advanced protection and adhere beautifully to
hard-to-coat substrates creating a durable, robust finish.,"
according to the information on their web-page - Been about 10 years
and no sign of any deterioration or failure.
