As for longevity, the paint is still on the walls 4 yrs later... A nice viscosity will tell you whether it's a winner

Seems to me these are conflicting statements? I am confused. You had no streaks yet you had to feather them out? And were the streaks---or no streaks you feathered out---in the primer part of the product or the paint part of the product?

Yeah, when putting the first coat on newly primed drywall you're bound to get a few streaks while cutting in, no matter how much you spend on paint. By going over the cut in with the flat side of your brush it's possible to erase those streaks by evening out the paint. Pretty amateur stuff so far.
Now, there probably were streaks with the primer, but it's being painted over, so that's irrelevant. Also, bare in mind the primer wasn't tinted, just left white.
As for chrisn, half of my previous post was a joke... I don't know if he doesn't believe that it only took one coat to cover or if he's just biased based on his past experiences. But, seems to me he needs to spend a little more time painting and not hanging paper, lool.
Paint I do have a problem with is Rona Collections, lool .
But like I said before, it mainly comes down to viscosity, as that is the main determinant factor to coverage.
Note, in no way am I advocating for Behr, I actually buy through Glidden.
Point is it covered with one coat. Will it do that everytime, I don't know. Maybe chrisn got a bad batch that needed two coats, who knows.

Glidden or Behr?


Hi guys. This is an old topic so I hope you don't mind that I bumped it. We are planning to paint our home's exterior. I see that many here advocate SW or BM over the big box store paint. I am not surprised that something more expensive is of a better quality but what I am confused about is the professional painters comments that it will cost them more in paint to use the cheaper stuff than to use the more expensive BM/SW paint. From my limited painting, it seems that the box store paints need two coats. Do the SW/BM paints need only one coat?

If you are using the same amount of paint, how or why is it cheaper to use SW/BM over cheaper box store paint? Ty.

Best to replace the rotten boards.

This topic seems to be coming up a lot as people look to finishing their exteriors. You can fill and sand different materials to repair facia. I used to use a lot of nice tinted expoxy to restore wood on sailboats. It ended up stronger than the original wood. I used it because I could not easily replicate the shapes and curves in places.

But if the cost of the material and labor to apply and sand it exceeds what new wood would cost? For facia boards. Why fuss with it. Replace it, prime it, paint it.

Right. Most facia is 1x6, or sometimes 1x8 pine. And if it's rotted where you can see it, it's almost certainly damaged underneath.

Replacement is generally fairly easy, and inexpensive.

I have used both, and I think that Behr is better.

Good Luck!

Quality paints cover more square footage BETTER........if that makes sense. A gallon of SW or BM will actually cover 300 to 400 sq. feet like the can says. On the other hand, cheaper paint covers about half as much and the coverage is poor. Many of the cheaper paints will require a 3rd or 4th coat for proper coverage.

So is this strictly because of the solids to solvent ratio or is there a quality of pigment issue too?

I think it is both. The cheaper paint use talc and other "fillers" which is why you hear someone say, "Man, that B*** paint is thick and heavy", which leads you to think the paint is better, but, in reality it's not so much the thickness and the heaviness of the paint that makes it work well.

Anyway, Kwikfishron, we really need Ric Knows Paint to explain the chemistry better...........

I would be interested to know more about this. If Ric has covered this before a link would suffice. My search came up with nothing.
