Hi I am wondering what brand of paint is a good paint
Hi I am trying to decide on what brand of paint for exterior paint would be good of the brands I have locally here is a good brand of paint to go with. I can get Sherwin-Williams, Valspar, Olympic, pittsburg paint, Benjamin Moore paint, dutch boy
I use to paint with Colony paint but that was sometime ago and I can not find there brand any more so now I am stuck with finding what brand I want to use now
any of the above, unsure about dutch but have used the rest, all fine. you totally missed the 40% off SW sale this weekend though. that would have been prime time.
my crystal ball says the other members will weigh on SW or BM
my suggestion...don't buy paint from a bog box store. such as Behr or Valspar. It's all crap. Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams is great paint and worth the extra $10-$15 a gallon.
My father owned and operated a painting business for some time. Benjamin Moore Regal paint is what we 90% of the time.
I recently purchased a house in the last year and had to repaint every room. I needed to buy paint ceiling paint one sunday and since BM is only available at certain stores, none of which near me are open on sundays, i decided to get behr ceiling paint.
big mistake. all the ceilings were previously painted with a light tan color. After 3 coats of the behr ceiling paint, I could still see the tan under the white. Monday came and I bought benjamin moore ceiling paint. I fixed the first ceiling with 1 coat. and the rest of the ceilings only required 2.
If you spend thousands of dollars on a remodel, why be cheap with your paint. If you want a professional result, use what they use. You'll never see a professional painting crew using behr or valspar. NEVER.
also, buy a quality brush like Purdy. Yeah it's a $10-$15 paint brush and may sound ridiculous. You'll see better results and if you clean it regularly and correctly, it'll last years.
i did laugh about your ceiling paint comment though, both valspar and behr have some of the worst ceiling paint the world has ever seen.
