What's your choice for exterior windows, oil, wb, hybrid?

I like Superdec and I've used Allcoat but I seem to bounce around a bit.

Love Allcoat but only use it on fascia's, soffits, concrete sills and occasionally doors. Superdec is good gear but the lengthy recoat time compared to Allcoat is a bind. Windows, I stick with oil and use Johnstone's stormshield flexible uc and gloss.

Jotun Demidekk Ultimate. Nothing comes near it IMHO. It eats brushes though.

Because of the extended drying time of oil-based (people have to close doors and windows before going to bed :lol: ), I use water-based.

Weathershield Trade Quick-Drying is my paint of choice and not had any problems with it. I first used it on my own exterior woodwork - fascias and soffits, and the rear door to my garage - five years ago and the paint still looks good with no bubbling or cracking. One of the fascias had a lot of flaking paint on it so I scraped that off and used some Dulux Trade Primer / Undercoat that I had in the back of the van to prime it.

The thing I like about Superdec is how flexible it is. You can paint a rubber glove with it and twist it about without cracking, I like that.
