Dutch Boy paint has always had a good reputation as being a top-quality paint. Their no-mess formula and easy to apply mixtures make using the paint a real joy. Dutch Boy paints also provide a great value to consumers because their one-coat formulas are durable and withstand even the harshest cleaning. To top it off, all of their paints are reasonably priced too! At around $15-$22, consumers get a good paint that without breaking their piggy banks!
If this sounds like a good deal, here’s a guide to Dutch Boy paint products. It includes product information about their more popular products and it also lists some places that you can find Dutch Boy paints nationwide.
Dutch Boy might be best known for their wide range of interior paints. They come in thousands of colors and in different sheens. Semi-gloss interior Dutch Boy paint seems to be a real popular choice. However, Dutch Boy also sells interior paint in flat, egg-shell, satin and high-gloss paints. According to Dutch Boy’s online sheen guide, their flat paints work best on ceilings, formal spaces, dining spaces and adult bedrooms. For those who wish to add a little “sheen” to their space, Dutch Boy’s semi-gloss and high gloss paints are great choices. These paints are great to use on wide-open spaces that users want to stand out in their homes. Bathrooms. kitchens, living rooms and cabinets are some of the places that Dutch Boy semi-gloss and high-gloss paints can make more attractive in no time.
Egg-shell and satin paints are better for wide-open spaces when a subtle touch is wanted. They have just enough sheen to them to make the spaces sparkle a bit but not so much that it becomes overwhelming. Use these paints when you’re painting your bigger spaces (kitchen, bathrooms, living rooms and so on) when you want a subtle sheen to brighten up your spaces. You might be surprised with the results!
Dutch boy also sells interior paints for interior trim and floors too. They sell latex and oil-based paints that are good for different situations. The latex paints are good for sealing floors to make them waterproof or to update old paint jobs. The oil based paints are good for protecting concrete surfaces against water and sun damage. These specialty products can be found at good hardware stores that have a good selection of indoor and outdoor paint products.
I have used Dutch Boy’s exterior paints on my grandmother’s house’s trim and siding and I wouldn’t use anything else. They come in a wide variety of colors and are very easy to apply. They seem to stand up well to all sorts of weather and they do a great job against mold and mildew damage, too. These paints may seem to be a little more expensive but they pay for themselves in the long run with the protection they provide.
Their two most popular exterior paints, Dirt Fighter and Extreme Adhesion, are latex-based paints that have specially formulated ingredients to resist chipping, peeling and fading. They are good for weather-proofing outdoor trim, siding and doors. They come in a wide variety of colors and are easy to apply to clean surfaces. The Extreme Adhesion brand of exterior paint is only available at Wal-Mart stores. Dirt Fighter brands can be found at many good paint stores that specialize in outdoor paint products.
Dutch Boy also sells other brands of exterior paints. Dura Weather is sold only at Menards Stores. It is specially formulated for weatherproofing wood, siding, hardboard and brick. Its one-coat formula is easy to apply and it comes available in flat, satin and semi-gloss sheens. Dura Weather is sold in several different colors and can be tinted to make even more custom colors.
