I have to say, it's a bit difficult to place confidence in your assertions when they are stated with such an arrogant tone.





I'm looking into a quality scrubbable flat. I hear it hides imperfections better and a quality brand should last (I also hear that some have a 'no fade' guarantee)

Ben Moore matte is a good choice
eggshell finish on a texture? not so good

The plan is: Benjamin Moore store - First Coat Primer, then primer, top coat, top coat. Of course, I will be soliciting BenMoore guidance also.

Also, I don't really have any 'gaps' to fill in (the corner zoom shot is hairline).

Just for clarification, I don't condition everything on my C.F.'s opinion. I place a lot of trust in what he says based on years of knowing him and recognizing his expertise and integrity. My earlier objections were based on that poster's bafflingly adamant assertions based on a few photos vs the opinion of a justifiably trusted CF who is on the job, running a hand down the seams, seeing it from different angles.

but the particular primer is no where near top quality ( in my lowly painters opinion)
So...given that the mud/tape issue is resolved to my satisfaction, what painting process would you suggest for the job? And are you saying that there is a different brand of a FCP product that you would consider acceptable?

(thx!)

Well, since you asked, I would put a coat of BM's Fresh Start and 2 coats of Aura on it. Expensive? yes, but it is VERY nice paint. Or you could go down a notch and just use Regal

I'll definitely look into that. Budget is starting to groan. so I've already surmised that Regal is the choice.

I'll post back after the job with the results.

Thanks!
