Why Choose Benjamin Moore Exterior Paint?

Benjamin Moore's exterior paints deliver remarkable hide and rich colors that are fade resistant. They are specially formulated to withstand the harshest weather conditions and provide excellent resistance to peeling, cracking, and fading.

Benjamin Moore + Color Lock Technology

ColorLock® Technology is Benjamin Moore's revolutionary paint technology. Unique in the paint industry, it offers you truly rich colors that withstand the test of time.

How does it work?

A significant drawback of the traditional paint manufacturing process is how the colors bind together. The particles of colorants (yellow in color) stick loosely to the dispersion molecules (blue in color). These particles are not uniformly distributed in the paint structure. This leads to undesirable color changes after repeated UV radiation exposure from the sun, or when the painted surface is washed repeatedly.

Benjamin Moore's Color-Lock® technology solves this problem. It microscopically bonds the right color pigments to the paint for outstanding results. These color pigments become locked-into the paint film, creating the specific color capsules.

What is the Effect? 

Color-Lock® makes colors richer, deeper, and more attractive. Paint can be applied more smoothly and evenly, resulting in fewer coats. It's also durable and washable in any color or sheen to give your home's exterior a freshly-painted look year after year.

Benjamin Moore External Paints FAQs

Is Benjamin Moore A good exterior paint?

Benjamin Moore is a great exterior paint with a pallet of over 3,500 paint colors to choose from that can perfectly match your home and property.

What is the best outdoor Benjamin Moore exterior house paint?

Some of the best-selling Benjamin Moore exterior paints are Aura Exterior and Regal Select Exterior Paint. Both these paints come with a 25-year limited warranty which covers peeling, blistering, and weathering.

What is the best weather for painting outside?

The ideal weather for painting would be 77°F with little or no humidity. Unfortunately, we often can't wait until summer comes around. As long as you plan to avoid the rain (which can ruin a fresh coat of paint) and temperatures below 40°F, the weather shouldn't be a problem.

Is it better to roll or spray exterior paint?

Most professional painters prefer to use a roller (and a paintbrush) to paint outdoors. That's because a roller applies a thicker coat of paint and you don't need to worry about things like overspray.

Where can I find samples of Benjamin Moore External Paints?

You can find two types of paint samples in our paint store. We have Benjamin Moore 16oz Paint Color Samples, and also Peel-and-Stick samples for you to choose from.
