Comment:
10 years ago, I put this paint on my house (located in the wet pacific northwest) over the preexisting oil based stain. It went on well and fully covered the house.<br /><br />At the 9 year mark, I felt the paint was looking a little dingy, and figured it was time to paint again.<br /><br />I pressure washed it, and, to my great surprise and pleasure, the paint looked brand new all over again. I figure, based on the look of the paint, I have at least another 5 years, or even more before I have to paint again. I suspect I will get tired of the color long before the paint wears out.

Comment:
I have used another brand of paint for decades and just switched to Behr. I really enjoyed how easily the paint went on the house, how well it looked when finished and the easy clean up. I really have nothing negative to say about the experience. I tested 11 colors on the house before we picked a color and all of them were a delaight to use.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
