Top 10 reasons to choose Dunn-Edwards
01 Paints proven to look better and last longer.

We spend a lot of time testing paints — both ours and our competitors’. Our paints are formulated to offer superior performance, and we have the tests results to prove it. If you need superior adhesion and hide, look no further than our EVEREST® and EVERSHIELD® lines of ultra premium paints. EVEREST®, the best paint we have ever made, is a low odor, Zero VOC interior paint that applies easily and provides exceptional stain resistance and washability. EVERSHIELD® offers ultra low VOC, while providing maximum exterior protection. What does this mean for you? These products offer high-performing, durable finishes that help ensure your project turns out beautifully.

02 The perfect color every time.

Dunn-Edwards knows color is critical. That’s why Perfect Palette ® — our proprietary color system that is preferred by paint and design professionals — offers you 2,006 colors to bring your vision to life. Perfect Palette ® features user-friendly color selection tools, making it easy to pick the right colors. And, just to be absolutely sure, you can test your colors with our 8-oz. Perfect Palette ® Sampler paint samples. Need to match a fabric, flooring or window treatment? We can match it, as we have the best tinters in the business. And, we use unique Zero VOC colorants, so our paints provide better hide, richer colors and lasting durability — with minimal environmental impact.

03 The #1 choice of professionals.

Ask any professional painter, and they’ll tell you. Dunn-Edwards has always had an excellent reputation among experts who really know their paint. In an independent survey, licensed painting contractors were asked which paint they would use on their homes. The overwhelming choice? Dunn-Edwards. In fact, more pros chose Dunn-Edwards than all other brands combined.* The reason? Superior quality. Those who know paint best know Dunn-Edwards outperforms and outlasts all other brands — putting us in a class by ourselves.

In another independent study, we asked nearly 500 interior design professionals which color system they specified most. The pro’s choice — by far — was Dunn-Edwards,** and designers love our Perfect Palette ® color system.

* Based on an August 2009 survey of licensed painting contractors in the Los Angeles, San Diego and Phoenix areas, conducted by Options Market Research.
** Based on a May 2012 survey of interior design professionals in the Southern California, Northern California and Arizona areas.

04 Formulated to stand up beautifully in any climate.

We have been successful by specifically formulating our paints to stand up to the diverse environments of the Southwest. Nowhere else in the world will you find such a range of challenging climates — from the harsh heat of the Mojave Desert, to the cold temperatures of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, to the salty air of the California coast. If a paint outperforms here, it will outperform anywhere! Unlike paint companies headquartered in the Midwest, East Coast or even overseas, our research and development are performed here — where we test our paints year-round. We know what ingredients work best in these conditions and formulate our paints for lasting performance and beauty.
