Do Certain Colors Of House Paint Resist Fading Longer Than Others

Q: Do certain colors of house paint resist fading longer than others?

A: Dark colors are the most likely to fade noticeably, but even bright colors can change over time due to the effects of UV radiation from the sun. Fading and bleaching happen very slowly. You might not even notice the color on your exterior walls has changed over the years until you try to repaint a chipped spot, and find the original color no longer matches. You can’t completely eliminate the effects of the sun’s rays on exterior paint, but paint technology is always changing, and many new paints have special sun-proof additives. Lessen the impact by choosing high-quality paints with UV inhibitors. Still, the UV radiation will eventually take its toll, and you’ll still need to repaint periodically to maintain a quality finish.
