Best for Trim: Behr Semi-Gloss Enamel Interior/Exterior Cabinet, Door & Trim Paint
Why should you get it: It creates a coating that resists dirt, grime and mildew. It also comes in two finishes as well as liter and gallon sizes, so you can get the amount that’s best for your paint job.
Keep in mind: You must first prime the surface, then sand it before painting.
Trim isn’t as large a paint surface as siding or even your front door, but it’s an attractive upgrade to your home’s exterior. You can keep it protected and look great with a few coats of Behr Semi-Gloss Enamel Interior/Exterior Cabinet, Door, and Trim Paint.
Exterior paint can be used both indoors and outdoors. It dries quickly, making it the perfect choice for trim and other high-touch areas like cabinets, doors, windows and shutters. It can also be used on masonry, drywall, metal and vinyl if the surfaces have been properly primed, making this product useful for multiple applications.
It’s a bit of a process to apply, as you’ll need to apply a coat of primer first, which the manufacturer recommends sanding down before adding two coats of paint. Remember that the paint will be dry in one hour, but you will have to wait two hours before the second coat. If you’ve used darker colors or are painting in cool or humid weather, you’ll have to wait even longer. However, the paint covers well, giving a strong and durable finish in all weathers.
