Paint at Walmart?


Just to add to what brush said( since my BM dealer moved), I use PPG products now for the most partand have been very happy with them and they are less expensive.

You can get a $10 off coupon from their website.

Then again, not everyone has a paint store nearby - so it's not a bad question to ask about big box store offerings.

Just like when I discuss woodworking, I buy my hardwood directly from Amish mills. That's not particularly helpful advice for most people.

Sometimes, good enough is good enough (e.g. Versabond latex modified thinset from Home Depot is good enough, the Custom Blend right next to it is not good enough). The range of opinions concerning paint makes this question interesting.

I harp about supporting local stores but if you cannot and still want quality paint store paint? Have it shipped to you. Contrary to myth, many places have blanket deals with FedEx and UPS ground and offer free shipping, even on paint, for orders over like $50.

I just found out that the Ace Hardware store near me carries Benjamin Moore paint. I am beyond thrilled. The Glidden was better than the Behr, but the BM is so much nicer.

My favorite thing about Sherwin Williams is that their logo seems like something an evil empire from a comic book would have as their logo.

Thanks to the folks in this fine forum, I've been using Sherwin Williams for a while now and have not been disappointed. ProClassic for trim and Superpaint for everything else. SW caulk is better than the Alex/Dap stuff which shrinks/cracks. There is a difference in quality. I thought Behr was good until I bought a semi-gloss that was like glue that didn't cover well at all. Did a powder room in Behr eggshell looks like it's dripping of the wall. I have full cans of Behr that I didn't even use. In addtion, SW staff knows about paint. Good stuff.

I think it's ironic (is that the right word) that with this tread going that this week I got a house to do that the previous painter is being taken to court over Walmart paint. He painted the ladies house 4 years ago and the paint is failing, flaking off and faded pretty bad, so she calls him back and demands some thing for her 25 year warranty. So after a long argument he admits that after she gave him the money for good paint he went to Walmart bought cheap paint and pocketed the rest.

Hate hearing stories like this. I hope the woman is able to nail him, get her money back, and sting him a bit. Doubtful he has anything to collect though and certainly will not once others he did work for hear of his trick. They will no doubt be on him like flies to flypaper.

Unfortunately, it is not the first or last time for this to happen, especially with the economy the way it is. The Wal Mart paint 4 years ago was made by SW.

I have to say in all honesty some of the best paint I have used was SW, some of the worst paint I have used was SW. My grand daughter was going to school in Orlando and decided to paint her kitchen. Then when she finished school she had to change it back or pay. We went to the landlord and got the color and he told us that the local SW store had the formula. When we went all you could buy was a 5er. That was some of the worst paint ever still have 4 1/2 gal in garage.
