Best Exterior Paint for Midwest Homes

Painting the exterior of your house can be a large and daunting task, let alone knowing how to choose exterior paint is overwhelming. What can be even more annoying is living in an area where the climate is unpredictable—much like in the Midwest United States. Everyone has experienced the crazy weather, especially in Michigan. Monday can roll in at 80 degrees and sunny, with Tuesday expecting snow, followed by a heavy rain and humidity prediction on Wednesday. While the spontaneity might excite you, most paints don’t love it so much.

After years of experiencing this crazy Midwest climate, Motor City Paint has carefully formulated the best exterior paint for whatever weather is thrown your way. Whether it is a torrential downpour, 10 inches of snow, or a sun-baked June day, Motor City Paint’s exterior colors will never fade nor change due to the weather. We have a number of different shades and stains for the exterior of your house, durable enough to last until you change your mind again on your house’s color. 

Here are a few of our suggestions to help you know how to choose exterior paint and why each one works so well in the Midwest:

Stains

Woodward Exterior Stain

Much like the dual coat, solid max also contains a tried and true formula to provide adhesion and flexibility. More than that, this stain can withstand the hottest summer Midwest days as well as those in the heart of winter.

Ideal surfaces for this solid stain include properly prepared wood, engineered wood, and masonry. This stain also comes with a 100% acrylic finish so that no weather can wear down your fresh coat of Motor City Paint.

Dual Coat Exterior Coating Flat

This stain offers excellent adhesion, flexibility, and above all superior weather resistance. Made in Michigan and for Michigan, it has the chemical makeup to resist cracking, peeling, staining, as well as the growth of mildew. It is also self-priming. Additionally, this stain works even as winter is approaching. Use Dual Coat Exterior Coating Flat in temperatures as low as 35 degrees Fahrenheit and enjoy the same performance as if you were painting on a hot summer day.

Solid Max Solid Exterior Stain

Much like the dual coat, solid max also contains a tried and true formula to provide adhesion and flexibility. More than that, this stain can withstand the hottest summer Midwest days as well as those in the heart of winter.

Ideal surfaces for this solid stain include properly prepared wood, engineered wood, and masonry. This stain also comes with a 100% acrylic finish so that no weather can wear down your fresh coat of Motor City Paint.

Paints

POLARCOAT

Much like the stains, this paint is made for Michigan’s erratic and unpredictable weather. This 100% acrylic latex paint features excellent year-round application. It can be applied at temperatures as low as 20 degrees, extending Michigan’s exterior paint season. Polarcoat is a premium self-priming exterior paint that is resistant to both cracking and peeling. It retards tannin bleed when used over cedar or redwood surfaces.

Superior 100% Acrylic Exterior Paint

While it’s self-priming on most projects, this 100% Acrylic exterior is perfect for your next project. This paint features excellent adhesion, great flexibility, and superior weather resistance. It is self-priming on masonry, aluminum, fiber cement and vinyl siding. It is also backed by a 30-year warranty. Superior 100% Acrylic Exterior Paint can also be applied at the low temperature of 35 degrees, making it the perfect paint to withstand anything the Midwest weather throws its way.

Guardian Ceramic Exterior Paint

This high build 100% Acrylic formula uses our latest Advanced Ceramic Technology, making it the ultimate exterior coating system. Built to withstand ice cold winters and sun-baked summers, it has great flexibility and superior weather resistance. Our Advanced Ceramic Technology also resists cracking, peeling, staining, and the growth of mildew. This self-priming finish can be applied down to temperatures of 35 degrees.

When you’re unsure how to choose exterior paint, keep in mind that Guardian Ceramic Exterior Paint is self priming on aluminum, vinyl, painted metal, wood, fiber cement board, or masonry surfaces – all of which are popular here in the Midwest.
