The Block 50 exterior paint colors are based on Dunn-Edwards paints (as reported in the June 2009 Block 50 newsletter). While you are not required to use Dunn-Edwards paints, you must use paints that match the colors.

  • STUCCO: Dunn-Edwards; SOW Ash White Acri-flat W704v
  • WOOD TRIM: Dunn-Edwards; SOW Weathered Brown Acri-flat W704v
The "SOW" portion of the name refers to Southwest Paintings - the original paint company. Dunn-Edwards has its own ash white color, but it is not the same.
