Frustrated with Valspar paint/primer all in one


I've heard some good things about the top end Valspar and Behr paints from some painters - i.e. they have improved their paints. Not to the quality of the top SW or BM paints, but still good enough.

If you are having that much of a problem, something else is probably wrong. What is the color and paint base and sheen you used? Going over what color and sheen? What is the exact Valspar paint? (Like all manufacturers, they make more than one line and saying "Sherwin Williams" makes about as much sense as saying "Chevrolet" because I have no idea if you're dealing with a Chevette or a Corvette, and then complaining your "Chevrolet" has no pick up.)

That paint & primers in one are usually only good for situations where you don't really need much of a primer to begin with.

Since this post was started last JUNE, whatever was wrong has most likely been addressed by now

I'm always a sucker for old resurrected threads - I never pay attention.
