If you are after a flat matt finish get a oil based external eggshell, its very tough, if you are after a very soft sheen the dulux weathershield external satin.

DO NOT USE EGGSHELL for a matt finish on exterior windows.You want FLAT OIL which will dry to a flat matt finish and offer far superior protection ( Flat oil is expensive so only buy the quantity you need 1 litre should be adequate.Regards John ps eggshell and satin are totally different finishes the satin giving a higher shine than eggshell but less opacity.
