Paint coming off when washed


From a "Technical" standpoint, a Semi-gloss is best...because higher-sheens have a smoother/tighter resin film.
Thus, they clean much easier!!

The "appeal" of shinier films is pretty subjective!
Some of our customers LOVE Flats...some HATE the look of a Flat.

Up here, ACE's Royal & Royal-Finest (ACE's top paint series) are very good paints in the Mid-$20's/gal.
The Scotchguard-treated Royal-Finest (~$32/gal.) cleans SUPERBLY. If you went this route, you could use an Eggshell sheen.
If you wanted the "conventional" paint, use a Satin.

These are very popular paints here.

No matter what ya choose...apply 2 full coats, and let cure 3-4 WEEKS b4 washing.

Sounds like quite a party!

If stuff gets on the walls after your "newest" paint-job, wipe-off LIGHTLY for 3-4 weeks.
Curing-out/hardening CAN take 3-4 weeks, as I mentioned.
Depends some on each homes' humidity, airflow, etc.

I'm by no means married to Behr Paint, but I've never had any problems with it.

I've used Valspar quite often, and like it. I've used Glidden. Its higher-end lines are fine.

Sherwin Williams Paint is very very good. But my experience with our local store was that they are arrogant butt-holes. And frankly, a 5% discount on $55 per gallon paint isn't good enough. Hopefully your experience will be better.
You should also check out Scott Paint....they are florida's best paint and now have an online website and ship right to your door via UPS. They specialize in mildew resistant coatings. I used the all grip paint when I repaint....it sticks to old alkyd (oil based) paints without any priming or sanding... and covers great. They have a satin, a semigloss, and gloss.
