Better paint--cleaner siding.

I swear the siding on my house acts like a giant dirt magnet. It doesn't help that I have a long gravel driveway that produces bucket loads of dust in the dry summer months. But Behr may have solved my problem with its new Marquee exterior paint. I recently watched a demonstration at a trade show where siding samples painted with Marquee and a couple other brands were covered with fine dirt. The dirt just fell off the siding that had the Behr paint. I was impressed--enough that I'm going to give it a try next time my house needs a fresh coat. It will be nice to have a clean-looking house more than twice a year. You can buy Behr Marquee at Home Depot for less than $50 a gallon. To watch a demonstration video, go to and search for "behr marquee paint."
