High-Quality Paints We Recommend You Use

There are a lot options in the house paint market these days and if you already have a paint brand you prefer we can certainly accommodate those needs.  That said, we do have a few paint products we recommend.  These are high-quality paints that bring out the best of your home and have shown themselves to have an exceptional life-span above many other products we have tried.

Sherwin Williams (Emerald)



Although Sherwin Williams is not a Portland paint brand, their stores spread throughout all of Oregon, and they are a popular choice amongst Portland painting contractors. The Sherwin Williams Emerald paint is an exterior and interior acrylic latex paint renowned for its stain blocking technology. It’s considered best-in-class for performance in the stain blocking category. Sherwin Williams Emerald paint is especially useful on lighter walls or ones that tend to get a bit messier than the rest of your home. The stain blocking technology stops stains from penetrating, practically eliminating water streaking, scuff marks, spotting, and just about anything else. Emerald also has a reasonable coverage rate that can even go right over a darker color, how many paints can offer that?

Sherwin Williams (SuperPaint)



Sherwin Williams SuperPaint is one of our best recommendations when it comes to painting. One of the reasons we think you should paint your home with SuperPaint is it does an excellent job covering both dark and light surfaces. Another pro about SuperPaint is the paint does not quickly wear or fade in the sunlight. The third reason we think Sherwin Williams SuperPaint is the best paint for Portland homes is that we found removing a wide range of stains was easy compared to other paint brands. The last reason we think you should choose SuperPaint paint is low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound). VOCs are found in many building materials and are partially responsible for that “new paint smell.”

Miller Paint (Evolution)

Miller Paint


Miller Paint was founded in 1890 by Ernest Miller, who arrived in Portland from Germany in 1885. Miller started painting houses on the side and was unhappy with the paints that were available at the time—believing the quality did not stand up to the demands of the Pacific Northwest weather. Miller Paint has done an excellent job creating the Evolution. It is a perfect interior paint when it comes to color, intensity, and texture. The Evolution series boasts many unique and high-quality finishes in a wide variety of modern colors. During the process of choosing paint, the artist in you will adore all the rich textures and smooth coating’s that Miller Paint offers.

Rodda Paint (Horizon)

Rodda Paint


Rodda Horizon is one of the earliest Portland paint brands to genuinely perfect a ‘green’ or environmentally friend paint product. It boasts no VOC’s for its interior paint and extremely low VOC’s for its exterior paint. However, the real question is, how does it perform? Review after review (and our testing) have shown that this high-quality paint stands the test of time, goes on smooth and thick with a better than average coverage rate, and does it all with almost no odor whatsoever. If using quality paint that focuses on being environmentally friendly is important to you, look no further than Rodda Horizon.
