Manor Hall Paint


Stopped into a PPG store last week, talked to the sales manager, told him I
was going to repaint my exterior of my house, ask him what he suggested.
He said Manor Hall egg shell, got a gal, went home and put some on part of
a wall. Wife didn't know if she liked that sheen, wanted to see what a flat looked like. Looked up on the internet some more about PPG paint. Went back
said I wanted to try a gal of Manor Hall Timeless in flat, he said they don't
stock it because they don't have a demand for it, said he could get it, he went into great detail how great Manor Hall was. So I left didn't know what to think, not sure why he didn't want to sell me their best paint, called another PPG dealer in my area, said they sell lot of Speedhide , ask him about
Manor Hall Timeless, said the same thing, don't stock it but can get it. Was
thinking Manor Hall paint was what I wanted to use but now I begining to have doubts. Any one have experience with PPG stores or Manor Hall paint

Not many PPG stores around. PPG has gone the route of selling to the Big Box stores under various names. Olympic is one name you see at Lowe's made by PPG.

Manor Hall is great paint.......just hard to find. Who wants to drive all over town or call stores all day to track it down. Try some Sherwin-Williams SuperPaint. Or go to a Benjamin Moore dealer and get some quality paint. Flat hides lots of imperfections but is usually not washable like an eggshell or a satin.

there is a supplier of ppg here in town. i've used all the different types of interior pittsburgh paints.
speedhide is ok paint for the price is its like their contractor grade.
pure performance is good quality paint for the price. i've used it in multiple rooms in my house.
manor hall is a decent paint no complaints.
the timeless is very good paint. its just as good if not better then alot high end paints and i wouldnt think twice about using it. not sure why they wouldnt carry timeless exterior.....
pittsburghs gold label ceiling paint is probably the best ceiling paint i've ever tried.

It's not that they don't carry it, they just don't stock flat( for obvious reasons)


The gold is the best ceiling paint on the market( IMO) for the price, and I have tried em all.

Thanks to ChrisN, I, too love the PPG ceiling paint. It is marketed for Menards big box stores as Ultra. Covers in one coat on ceilings and has that nice bright white look that I love. Chris, you did not steer me wrong!
