I am looking for a white paint that will match the color of the new
white vinyl windows. I have white paint but it is not the correct
shade. The vinyl windows look like a "pure white" and the paint I have
is off white.
Does anyone know brand of paint I can use for the trim to match the
white vinyl windows?
There are a hundred shades of white , so you think all windows have the
same color of white. Get a white chart, or bring your window to a real
paint store, or go to a real paint store like Sherwin Williams they will
Real paint store whatever. Just go anywhere that sells paint, and buy a
can of "white" paint. Not "off white" or "cream" or "eggshell" or any
of the hundreds of other shades of almost white paint. You will
doubtless find dozens of "white" choices too -- gloss, semi-gloss,
super white, pure white, etc -- pick whichever one you think matches
Just to clear things up I tried "Extra White" (Classic) paint from
Sherwin Williams. It was not "off white" (I used the wrong term in my
original post) but when the extra white paint is next to the vinyl
windows it looks like "off white". It has a darker tint.
I am going to try and take a sample to Benjamin Moore to see how the
"super white" matches or if they have something close to the white
I have used Benjamin Moore "super white " paint that seems to match
pretty good. They also have just plain "white". "Off white" is
totally different from regular white, that's why it does not match your
