Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is the best paint for exterior projects?
A. For over a century, professional painters have counted on several Benjamin Moore® exterior paints for both superior protection and beautiful results.
Premium quality Element Guard™ exterior paint stands up to wind-driven rain, excessive humidity and other harsh weather conditions. It resists cracking and peeling and provides amazing colour retention.
Q. What is the best paint for tropical weather?
A. If you live in a region with tropical weather, Element Guard™ exterior paint is an excellent choice to protect outdoor surfaces from harsh weather.
Formulated to withstand wind-driven rain and excessive humidity, Element Guard™ stands up to harsh weather thanks to its 100% acrylic resin proprietary formula. And while it powerfully protects exterior surfaces, its availability in 3,500+ Benjamin Moore® paint colours makes the outcome beautiful too.
Q. What is the best paint for wet locations?
A. Rainy, wet locations offer many challenges for homeowners and painters alike when it comes to painting exteriors.
Benjamin Moore®’s Element Guard™ is formulated to tackle high moisture, so exterior surfaces in wet, humid environments are protected. Its mildew-resistant coating offers extra protection that stands up to all types of moisture.
Application-wise, Element Guard™ provides early rain resistance, which means it can be applied at least 60 minutes before rainfall or dew.
Q. How much does it cost to paint the exterior of a house?
A. When it comes to the price of painting an exterior, there are several factors to consider including the size of your home and the area in which you live, making it difficult to provide a price range for exterior projects.
You should know that painting products typically account for approximately 10-15% of the cost for a home exterior painting project. Labour makes up the remaining cost.
Ask your locally owned Benjamin Moore® retailer to help you find a reliable exterior painting contractor. As always, get at least three quotes, and ask for referrals from trusted neighbours and friends.
Q. Can I use exterior paint inside?
A. Benjamin Moore® does not recommend using exterior paint inside of your home.
Exterior paints are formulated with different ingredients than those found in indoor paints. Element Guard™, for example, is formulated to withstand wind-driven rain, excessive humidity and other harsh weather conditions. If you have leftover exterior paint, you can store it for several years—just make sure that the paint is properly sealed and placed in a cool, dry place. Learn more about storing leftover paint.
Painting the inside of your home with a premium interior paint is a much smarter choice: Consider Ben® Interior, Regal® Select Interior or Aura® Interior, all of which are available in your choice of 3,500+ unmatchable colours.
Q. What is the best waterproof outdoor paint?
A. While no exterior paint is 100% waterproof, outdoor paints like Element Guard™ are formulated to withstand wind-driven rain, excessive humidity and other harsh weather conditions.
