If you are looking for a modern anthracite grey or similar anything is possible. We would suggest taking a look at RAL 7035 as a popular lighter tone.

Zinsser Allcoat Exterior is a high quality, versatile product designed for application to all external surfaces, and offering up to 8 years of protection from weathering and water damage. On top of this, Zinsser Allcoat Exterior contains a biocide to protect the dried coating against fungal degradation, and being self priming there is no need to purchase a separate primer.
