New Here and Got a Question about Sherwin Williams Paints


Hi Everyone....I have a question about SW Paints if anyone can help me. We recently purchased a new home a few weeks ago and I am wanting to repaint over all this builder grade flat paint in my home. It was a foreclosed home and the walls needed a good cleaning before we moved in, but so far all it has done is take the paint off when we have tried to wipe them. I recently fell in love with my local SW store after they were able to mix me up some exterior paint to bring my vinyl shutters back to life and they were an almost perfect match to the original color! Now I would like to use them for interior paint but I have a few questions. I have 5 boys so I want a paint that will wipe clean easily and hold up to them. I also like a little sheen on my walls, but not glossy, lol! I was set to go with the Duration line, but someone recommend the Cashmere line too? How do those 2 compare as far as looks, durability, coverage, and ease of application? Is there another one I need to look into at the SW store? BM is out of the question since they closed our local one down and I have tried both Valspar and Behr, but wasn't that impressed with them. Any suggestions would be great and something that won't break the bank would be even greater!

Hmmm, interesting. Theoretically, Cashmere could be a good choice because it lays flatter (and nooks and crannies - either microscopic or visible - are what hold dirt). I have never tried it as a more scrubbable finish though.

Satin is too much sheen IMO.

I'd use Duration Matte (which they advertise as a scrubbable flat, but of course isn't - it's between flat and eggshell), or ProMar 200, which comes in "low sheen" or eggshell. If you're going to put on 2 coats, the cheaper ProMar 400 is usually fine except for big color changes.

Hi Mom25, I recently did my living area after advice from those here and at SW, and went with the cashmere. What sold me on that was how well it spreads and evens out for people like me who isn't a perfect painter. There were zero brush or roller marks and Ive only used a roller a few times in my life. I used a flat but the Cashmere also comes in a low luster which is more scrubbable. My living room looks beautiful.

My SW salesperson said they will be running a bunch of sales this year and the next one is supposed to be 25% off paint sometime in January so you can get a good price sometime soon
