Both the folks you talked to do not know their subject matter. The SW #4 (as well as the Olympic #5) both have the UV protection (less sure about mildewcide, but I’ll bet they can add it if needed) and both will dry with a varnish like appearance. If you want to test see if you can buy a quart can of the SW (I don’t think Lowes carries quarts of the Olympic) and try it out, then talk it back to SW and show them. You could also get the #4 at other paint stores like Benjamin Moore or whatever is around your area. I think I warned about the reactions earlier….stepping outside the box is never easy. As I mentioned I personally used the Olympic product and can vouch for it’s usefulness.
