sheen for BM exterior paint - satin vs low lustre??

6 years ago

Painter says he always uses satin for exterior painting. I was thinking of going with Benjamin Moore's Low lustre. The home is brick but there is wood siding on a "peak" over the garage doors which faces west. This area was beat up due to a hail storm (tennis ball) so its not exactly a perfect surface.

Will there be a shine when that afternoon sun shines on the satin? Also concerned about the imperfections showing up more with the satin paint. Oh yes, it is white paint. Painter says the satin will were longer.......is that so? So the question is satin vs low lustre for an area that faces bright afternoon sun.
