Is oil based exterior paint going the way of the dinosaur?

Berichtdoor gabrielantonio » Ma Jun 11, 2018 4:35 pm


I have been told by 3 fairly credible sources that production of oil based exterior paint was discontinued at the beginning of this year. Yet when we talked to our local Benjamin Moore dealer, we got two different answers. One salesman said maybe but he felt that it would still be available in some form because there was a demand for it. Another said it wasn't being discontinued.
Does anyone know the real deal? We really need the correct answer because we are half-way through painting the trim on our old house. The weather was very rainy last summer and the painter was very thorough but very slow. We bought a number of gallons of paint to stock up and have been promised more primer when it comes in but I am getting nervous. I did several internet searchs to see if I could find the answer but without luck but I am not that great at the internet. If it is being discontinued, will that include porch and floor enamel too? What is the general opinion of latex paint? Especially over oil paint?

Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

For outside Alkyd paint is used nowadays with less dangerous solvents.
