Two of the best exterior latex paints are Pratt & Lambert's Accolade
and Pittsburgh's Manor Hall. Get an eggshell or satin
finish. Never use flat paint outdoors. Expect to pay
about $25-$30/gallon for quality paint. And always apply
two coats. One coat simply isn't thick enough to
last very long. Paint is designed to wear off with time.
Two coats cost just a little more in time/effort but can
nearly double the life of the paint job.
