Comparing SW to Benjamin Moore


I went to both stores today, but I noticed their lines are different. Duration is Sherwin Williams top line and Aura is Benjamins Moore's. What is a comparable paint to A100 and superpaint? Super paint and Duration run $45 and $50 per gallon respectively. A100 is only $30. Is it worth it to pay the large premium? Is A100 a decent paint?

It's an exterior paint as well.

Isn't aura the one that dries real fast....like 15 minutes? Good for a pro since you can recoat in one day allowing you to go toa different job the next day. I imagine BM Aura and Regal lines are very good paint along with SW's best. Probably cannot go wrong with either one.

Comparing SW to Benjamin Moore


Aura is a specialty paint (ultra low VOCs and waterborne tints) so at this time there is no SW comparison
Duration would be like BM's Regal line (interior) or BM's Mooreglo/Mooreguard line (exterior)
SuperPaint would be comparable (line-up wise) to BM's SuperSpec (interior)
Exterior SuperPaint has no counter in the BM line, BM doesn't do a "mid-line" exterior

I would have put Duration on it's own (better than Regal, and just plain different from Aura (no better or worse), and SuperPaint roughly equivalent to Regal.

Comparing SW to Benjamin Moore


...if I were to use actual application experiences and preferences to form the comparison, the comparison would look a little different

Strictly from a product line-up stand point:
SW top (non-specialty) interior or exterior line is Duration
Second tier is SP

BM's top interior is Regal, exterior is Moorglo/Moorguard
Second tier (interior) is SuperSpec
(there is no second tier exterior)
