Anyone got any recommendations for a good exterior gloss paint? I
normally use Dulux, but it seems to need re-doing every two or three
years - and yes, I do rub it down well and use a good undercoat.
There used to be something called Ranch paint, for which the
manufacturers made some pretty good claims about longevity, etc. Is it -
or anything similar, still available?
Yep, I've used it in the past and found it very long lasting, it is
microporous which I think is one of the factors for longevity but works
best when used without undercoat.
Last time I looked it had become more difficult to get hold of and had
been replaced in the sheds by International 10 year Exterior Gloss which
is also microporous. The finish is far more glossy than the Ranch paint
which had a bit more of a soft sheen which I liked.
After viewing the International site I got the impression that Ranch
paint would be longer lasting than the 10 year gloss.
