Are you kidding? The two can't be compared. Behr = poor. SW = Top Quality

Yea, Behr gets good reviews by consumer groups for some reason but its not good paint. On the other hand it depends on what level of Sherwin Williams your talking about?

Duration and Super Paint are both good brands.

Put it this way... if I was painting my house I would use Sherwin Williams Duration. It costs more but the stuff is good.

Behr is so tremendously poor it boggles the mind

I've not ever used worse stains and paints...ever

I won't use them again

The best thing I can say about them is, if that is what the average homeowner thinks painting is like, then Behr has definitely got me jobs from DIYers that Behr has scared off (Thanx B.)
