Is Dulux Weathershield the one?

I have the outside of the house to paint consisting of pebble dashed render and a very small amount of timber.

Having done some research I was looking and Dulux Weathershield or sandtex masonry/exteriror timber paint

Is either one better than the other and are there better products out there. Cost is not really a factor on this one, i just want the right product.

I am a big fan of Dulux trade products generally so have confidence in the brand but have never used their products externally.

Don't paint masonry onto wood.

I did a gate in masonry (sigh) as I had loads left over, within a year it's gone very thin, matt and will need repainting this year before winter.

I painted my dashing in Johnstone's masonry and it's covered well, I did paint it all sandtext white first (slightly watered down), as I got it cheap, and I didn't bother with stabiliser, two years down the road, it still looks good, no dirty patches.

I used their eggshell (water based) for outside doors, and they look like new.

Dulux I'm guessing will be the same.
Sorry i didnt mean paint the woodwork with the masonry paint. Not sure what i was thinking when i wrote that. Masonry for the pebledash and timber for the woodwork
