The Best Exterior Paint for Commercial Projects

When looking for the best exterior paint for commercial projects, the right paint depends on the color and properties that you’re looking for. While all of the best exterior paints are designed to be weather resistant, some outperform others, especially for large buildings that are more exposed to the elements. The best exterior paint for your commercial project is likely to come from Benjamin Moore.

We prefer and recommend this brand for many of our projects because it is extremely durable and rated for commercial projects. We have confidence in the brand, just as we do with Sherwin Williams for a lot of our residential projects.

Benjamin Moore produces some of the best exterior paint for situations where the exterior surface has been heavily weathered over the years. Benjamin Moore Select Exterior High Build paint is one example where the paint can quickly fill in cracks and voids in the surface material for a more consistent coat.

Whether choosing Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, or other brands from our suppliers, we will always choose the best exterior paint for the unique project. We’ll consult on color, the specific esthetic you’re going for, and will provide options.


The Most Popular Exterior House Paint Colors

If you’re planning to paint your home, you can start thinking about the project and the most popular exterior house paint colors.

In our initial consultation, we’ll discuss exterior house paint colors and paint brands based on your type of home and the look and feel that you’re going for. Certain exterior house paint colors can evoke different moods and eras, but there’s no one-fits-all solution for every property.

As a starting point, explore some of the most common exterior house paint colors:

  • Deeper mustard yellows are trending for brighter and more lively homes that retain a hint of summer and spring during the colder months.
  • Rich greens work well for a natural and earthy esthetic that fits in superbly on Chicago’s North Shore.
  • Classic white will always be in style, and it can be complemented with darker accents on shutters, frames, and doors.
  • Ocean blues and greens are ideal for coastal homes that integrate naturally with the environment.
  • Blue-gray paint has been used extensively in recent years and works well with homes featuring light or dark gray brick and stonework.

There are no real rules when it comes to choosing exterior house paint colors (unless stated in HOA agreements) so you can get creative when exploring different paint brands.
