Sherwin Williams duration vs. Benjamin Moore Aqua


Well gee whiz! I was a bit disappointed that I'm going to have to repaint my house soon. Benjamin Moore, painted last in 1982 (29yrs?). Yes it's beginning to fade and peel just a little where the rain hits a lot, but only in the last 5 years or so. Maybe because it has asbestos shingles? Not looking forward to what will have to be done.

With asbestoes shingles, probably not a lot. A good power wash and a light scraping and spot prime where it's peeling. Might be able to get most of the peeling with a power washer. Can't get to aggressive with asbestos anyway because you absolutely don't want any dust floating around. That pretty much leaves out any power tool use except maybe a heat gun.

What do you mean by delivery?

Said I would be pleased to apply either paint company line but with a leaning toward Benjamin Moore. I would not let something like BEHR near my home or that of a client.

One consideration about SW vs BM- or any other paint store- is they are not all represented the same everywhere. Here there are many SW stores, and a large 12+ store independent chain , plus a smaller 3 store chain, plus Ace hardwares all selling BM. It is easy to get, fully stocked and competitive.
Not true everywhere.
Plus those independents have some pretty good products of their own, and carry other quality brands.
I feel very fortunate to be in a paint rich area!
