Florida buildings withstand some of the most extreme weather in the country, including high humidity, hurricanes, and high temperatures. Mass-produced exterior paints designed for buildings across the country often can’t deliver the same lifespan in different climates. Even the toughest coatings may not have the formula necessary to provide vibrant color while also combatting:

  • Mildew
  • Algae
  • Precipitation
  • High winds

When you’re getting ready to renovate your property’s exterior, you want to choose a coating that will last for years, no matter what Florida’s climate throws at it, like UCI Paints, Fort Lauderdale’s hometown paint company.

What are the top paints for exteriors?

You’ll likely have the same options for exterior coating brands whether you DIY your painting project or hire a contractor.

National brands have paints that are formulated for buildings across the country, so they have to withstand cold, dry climates as well as hot, humid ones. The figure of speech ‘jack of all trades, master of none’ also applies to paint.

Mass-produced paints meet the needs of customers across the country but can’t deliver the same results or quality as a hometown paint brand designed for Florida.

What’s the advantage of paint formulated in the state?

When a manufacturer has lived and worked in a local climate for multiple generations, they bring singular expertise to their craft, creating a paint that is resistant to:

  • Dirt
  • UV damage
  • Mildew
  • Humidity

These are issues that are unique to Florida alone. A paint that delivers long-lasting color and performance in North Dakota just won’t be able to stand up to the climate in Florida.

Get better results by pairing the best exterior paint for Florida with skilled application.

No matter how great your paint brand is, you won’t get the best performance out of your exterior coating without proper preparation and application. Painting projects are some of the most popular to DIY, but there are substantial benefits to entrusting your property’s exterior to professionals.

  • Pros calculate the exact amount of paint needed. You won’t have to worry about having leftover paint or running out before the project is done.
  • You get skilled surface preparation. There’s more to a long-lasting paint job than just rolling on a color. Paint contractors will prepare the exterior of your property for optimal color adhesion.
  • Meet warranty requirements. When the pros repaint your exterior, they’ll meet the standards set by the warranty, so if the product fails to perform as expected, you can get it repaired or replaced.

At UCI Paints, we conduct consultations with every customer at their property. Backed by over three decades of experience, we’ll assess the exterior and create a unique Job Specification Report to pair you with the ideal contractor for your needs.

We’ll also ensure that the job runs smoothly and meets warranty requirements with regular site inspections. The best exterior paint for Florida is more than just a brand. It’s a total experience, including project management, that ensures the outside of your property looks great season after season, through rain and sun.
