When we did the exterior house painting of this Sanibel Island home, we used a brand of paint that is manufactured by APV Engineered Coatings. The product line is called NeverFade™ and is a low VOC exterior house paint that will not fade no matter what the exterior color is. APV Engineered Coatings has backed this up with a 15-year warranty, which includes replacement of product and labor related expenses. However this paint is more expensive than your traditional exterior paint coatings. I currently use a Sherwin Williams Duration in either a satin or gloss finish. By using the Duration and depending on the paint color the homeowner chooses, the average life expectancy of the paint jobs is 8-12 years.
