If I did, I'd raise the price to compensate for the difficulty

Although I can recommend some SW products, IMO BM Regal is a much better int. product
Say it's not so slickshift. Regal over Superpaint!

Sherwin-Williams line suggestion?


I just used Aura (I was made to because of color match) along with the Home Duration satin on my last job. The Duration is so washable. The aura ripped upped trying to do a second coat. Overall I really believe the Duration was a better coating. The Aura was good though. BUT NOT FOR $20 GALLON MORE!! I will not lie folks. Sherwin Williams is the best thing that ever happened to my business. The 7 years with Ben Moore I started my career were a nightmare. Yes i am an avid SW man and proud of it. I tell my customers that Ben Moore Co. could give me free paint for the inside and outside of my home and I would say "no thank you". BM is a great color company. SW are the professional coatings experts.

I did find my niche.

Update.

Just use pro-mar 200. I had a heck of a time with textured walls using behr and valspar. Had no choice at the time.

Current job is int. texture and I got PM200, eggshell @18.xx/gal. That's much less than the HD and Lowes premium paints.

The HD/Lowes paint was really thick but still left lots of holidays on texture/knockdown. It also did NOT spread anything like PM200. The 200 goes much further.

The 200 is going on like the walls are smooth, costs much less, easier to work with and covers really, really well.

There are lots of better paints, but if we're comparing cost vs. quality, nothing beats PM200.
