The Sonoran Desert is a beautiful place to live with paradise-like weather—until the summer rolls back around, that is. Trust us: your home’s exterior paint feels the same way. Under a constant bombardment of UV radiation mixed with dust storms, torrential monsoon rain, and more, your stucco home can take a beating throughout the year.
To stand up to this environment, you need the best-possible exterior paint. At Crash of Rhinos, we’re proud to use Dunn-Edwards. Their exterior paint is specially formulated for the desert Southwest and all the sun, wind, rain, and heat that comes with it. By pairing Dunn-Edwards’ formula with our proven prep and painting methods, your exterior paint will last longer and look better.
In this article, we’ll review just a few of the reasons that Dunn-Edwards is perfect for stucco homes here in the Valley.
Why Dunn-Edwards is the best Arizona exterior paint
1. Formulated to withstand Arizona sunshine
One of the biggest causes of paint deterioration on your Arizona home is the sun. Temperatures in the months of June through September consistently exceed 100 degrees, which causes exterior paint to deteriorate faster. In addition, the near-constant bombardment of solar radiation through the long daytime hours can cause fading in most paints.
However, one of the reasons that Dunn-Edwards is the best Arizona exterior paint is because it was specifically designed and formulated for the climate here in Arizona. It’ll stand up to the summer sun.
2. It resists peeling, cracking, and mildew
Along with sustained high temperatures, dust and heavy rains can also wreak havoc on your home’s exterior. Using a paint with superior adhesion and bonding helps protect your home against mildew which can cause paint to peel and crack. That’s what Dunn-Edwards—paired with our excellent prep process—offers.
3. It’s fade-resistant
Dunn-Edwards paint is made using a special UV-blocking formula that keeps color from fading in the ever-changing Arizona climate. This 100% acrylic exterior paint stays looking good for 10-15 years, and it is available in a host of vibrant colors.
4. It’s eco-friendly
The company prides itself on a green manufacturing philosophy. Their paint is both customer and environmentally friendly. Eco-friendly features of their products include:
- No VOC (volatile organic compound) colorants
- No Ethylene Glycol
- RAVOC (reactivity-adjusted VOC content) rating labels on every can
- The U.S. Green Building Council made them the world’s first LEED Gold-certified paint manufacturing facility.
6. It’s locally manufactured
A bonus feature of Dunn-Edwards paint is that it is made right here in Phoenix. Who better to understand your exterior paint needs than a manufacturer located right in your own backyard?
