    We used Ace paint 6 years ago.Our house hadn't been painted for 15 years before that. It still looks like I just painted it.

    Hubby and I always used Palm Paint on Nova Road in Ormond. We did this for a business and could always count on the quality of their paint. However, what ever paint you use, the prep work of washing off the house, removing any loose paint, and sealing it prior to painting is actually just as important if not more than the brand of paint you use.

    In my years I have used many brands of paint, Sherwin Williams used to be my choice, however I have to tell you that when we painted our stucco home 6 years ago we used the ACE Brand Delux Paint. It was excellent coverage, changed our house from Spanish yellow and brown to Mint green and deep green and single coverage in almost all areas. It shows no sign of chalking, cleans easily with the pressure washer, thus no complaints here at all. I would surely use it again.
    Currently the St. Augustine stores have a $5.00 gallon rebate, I would think that Flagler has that also.

    When asked to identify the best exterior house paint, building and painting contractors name Sherwin-Williams Duration more than any other paint. It's also mentioned as a better alternative when pros are asked about other…

    Money ruled out and we painted with Duramax from Lowes. 20 year warranty and I don't think Lowes is going anywhere. Seems like pretty good paint. Nice and thick and the house feels like it has a rubbery coating to it. It filled all the small crack and looks pretty good if I do say so myself.

    Next project is painting the pool deck!

    Glad to hear you got your project finished. I bet you feel great every time you pull in your driveway now.

    Yes, also I feel tired, lol. This past year we have replaced all of the doors and windows and painted. But, my electric bill has dropped about $100.00 a month!
