Muralo paint advice
 
Hi
I just registered and looking for advice on Muralo ultra ceramic paint. I had asked my contractor to use Sherwin Williams Duration paint for my lower living level and he switched to Muralo Ultra Ceramic paint instead claiming it was better paint. While I agree that the colors seem to match, I know nothing about Muralo Ceramic paints and have had very good luck with Sherwin Williams, anyone know anything about these paints or was my contractor just saving himself extra money??????:wink:

I'm not familiar with Muralo, but it would probably be arguable that it's "better" than Duration
Probably more a personal preference than a fact
Duration is pretty darn good
(This from a Ben Moore guy)

It's also not cheap
I don't know how much Muralo costs, but off-hand I wouldn't be surprised if it was cheaper than Duration
That doesn't mean the contractor shouldn't use it if it's close to the same quality
(especially if they are more familiar with it)
A five or ten dollar difference per gallon is really not much, as most of the cost of a paint job is labor
Percentage-wise it's tiny

...from our perspective, that doesn't cover the cost of us driving down to the paint shop, waiting in line, and then for them to mix it...etc..

Maybe @ ten bucks a gallon cheaper and if you needed 5 or ten gallons
Then it might be worth it
