Upgrade Your Exterior Paint Project with Sherwin Williams Emerald Rain Refresh

Are you looking to upgrade your exterior paint project with a high quality paint that keeps your home looking fresh and clean for years? If you’re tired of your exterior looking dirty and worn due to dirt pick up, pollen, pollution, etc, look no further than Sherwin Williams Emerald Rain Refresh! In this blog post, we’re diving into what makes Emerald Rain Refresh a great paint product, why we recommend it, and how it differs from other exterior products on the market. 


What is Emerald Rain Refresh?

Sherwin Williams Emerald Rain Refresh is a high quality, top of the line acrylic latex paint that is specially formulated to stand up to the challenges brought on by rain, UV rays, and other harsh weather elements. It is created with an advanced self-cleaning paint technology that both protects your home’s exterior (the surface and integrity of your home’s construction), and enhances the charm, appeal, and aesthetic of your home, giving it a vibrant, long-lasting finish. 

No matter what the weather conditions are, Emerald Rain Refresh is guaranteed to leave your exterior paint looking fresh and clean if applied correctly. No more worrying about streaks, pesky watermarks, or faded colors. 

Emerald Rain Refresh has quickly become one of our favorite exterior paint upgrades available on the market today and one we use frequently in our paint projects at Oak City Coatings. It is innovative in nature and created by one of the most trusted paint companies, Sherwin Williams.  


Is Sherwin Williams Rain Refresh Self-Priming? 

Emerald Rain Refresh is self-priming, but only on previously painted surfaces. Therefore, if your surface already has a coat or more of paint, it can be applied directly to the surface. The caveat here is that the surface must be properly prepared in order to best allow the paint and priming element to adhere to the surface. 

If your surface has NOT been previously painted, you’ll need to apply a high quality primer, specifically on bare surfaces such as wood, metal, concrete, PVC, etc.

If you hire a professional painter who values proper prep, they’ll be able to help you achieve the best adhesion and finish, whether your surface has been previously painted or not.  


What Sets Emerald Rain Refresh Apart From Other Exterior Paints?

Emerald Rain Refresh sets itself apart from other exterior paints in a variety of important ways. 


Superior Weather Resistance

Unlike many common exterior paints, Emerald Rain Refresh is specifically engineered to protect your home from moisture, mold, mildew, fading, and other issues that arise due to rain, humidity, UV exposure, and other weather elements. 


Advanced Color Protection

Emerald Rain Refresh’s paint formula prevents your exterior’s color from fading, ensuring that your home looks vibrant, rich, and new for years to come, no matter what the environment throws at it. Plus, it can be tinted in specific paint colors from the Sherwin Williams VinylSafe line, which allows homeowners to select from a number of darker colors created to resist warping or buckling. 


Exceptional Durability

When you choose Emerald Rain Refresh, you choose a paint product with exceptional adhesion, flexibility, and durability. It can stand up to heavy rain, extreme temperature swings, harsh UV rays, and structural movements that occur over time without cracking, peeling, or fading. This ensures you have long-lasting paint performance on the exterior of your home. 


Easy to Clean

Sherwin Williams Emerald Rain Refresh is conveniently easy to clean, which makes it easy for dirt to wash away when it rains. No more worrying about a dull finish when it rains. Emerald Rain Refresh actually makes your home shine brighter and stay fresher longer with the rain. 


Time and Money Savings

Due to the self-priming technology and excellent cost per gallon, Emerald Rain Refresh can save you both time and money when painting your home’s exterior. It is also easy to apply and has great adhesion ratings, which requires less time and effort for painters to apply. 


How is it Different from Emerald?

You may be wondering, how is Sherwin Williams Emerald Rain Refresh different from the original Emerald paint product? Both are premium exterior paint products that we highly recommend and use often in our paint jobs. However, Emerald Rain Refresh offers enhanced water resistance and durability, which makes it the preferred choice for homes in regions with high rainfall or moisture levels. 

Does Emerald Rain Refresh Really Work?

Emerald Rain Refresh is used and trusted by countless homeowners and professional paint companies that have seen firsthand the transformative effects and benefits of using Emerald Rain Refresh on their home’s exterior. Sherwin Williams is a trusted company and this product, with its advanced technology, delivers on its promises. The protection and stunning aesthetic it provides is unmatched and will last for years.


When to Use Emerald Rain Refresh Exterior Acrylic Latex Paint?

Emerald Rain Refresh can be used on a wide variety of exterior surfaces, including wood, stucco, brick, and fiber cement. Whether you’re painting your full exterior, siding, trim, or outdoor furniture, Emerald Rain Refresh is the perfect choice for any project where durability and weather resistance matters the most. 

If you’re ready to upgrade your exterior paint and give your home a fresh, crisp look with Sherwin Williams Emerald Rain Refresh, we’d be thrilled to help you bring your project to completion.
