SW Duration or Valspar Ultra Premium help


^ Someone in this thread said duration was king, someone else said superpaint, someone else said A-100. I searched and read this forum for hours and it seems that duration is the best.

The guy at sherman williams told me a-100 does not come with a lifetime warranty and requires primer. I did not want to do the primer bit as we are in october and 50 degrees as a high for the day. I need to get this done this week or next and I am doing it all 100% alone. Duration had a lifetime warranty, they gave it to me for $42 a gallon. I paid a little bit more yes.. but I do not want to repaint this house or fence.

SW Duration or Valspar Ultra Premium help


you have a point and might have saved a couple of dollars but talking to the pros primering then painting even with a less expensive paint might have given you a better job overall. I agree I'm in ct and have to get my windows painted and am waiting on some suggestions but the first question the pro asked me was how long am I staying in the house. If your there for the rest of your life lifetime warrenty is good if your the for 15-20yrs all you need is for the job to last you that long.

plus any paint need to be done over after time so with that said if you spend have and have to paint twice over said yrs. the job cost only alittle more but last alot longer.

any project should be looked at this way

good luck

I plan on being here 5-10 years but who knows.

I asked everyone in my family that has painted their house and they all said the longest paint has lasted them is 8 years then it peeled. Some of my family said it lasted them less than 5 years.

Man I hope this stuff is as good as everyone says and when I go to sell, I don't have to repaint it. I hate painting. I will gladly pay double for a paint that lasts twice as long to save myself the aggravation and labor. In the end.. I spent about 200 bucks more than if I would have got A-100..

The only way to really get any longer than 5-8 years out of a pint job is to start with bare wood, but getting the whole house down to bare wood is a LOT more work than just painting it every 5 years. The problem is the layers underneath. You can put the best paint in the world on your house, but when the layers underneath decide to let go of the wood, you are going to have peeling. Read your warranty as well. I am sure somewhere in there is something that will protect them from having to give out replacement paint when the bottom layer is peeling.

You got that right. There is not ANY paint that will last a lifetime, come on think about it, if that we true would any of us painters be here at all? I think not.As Matthew said the only way to get a long lasting( maybe 10 years at most) is to take it back to bare wood, apply slow dry oil primer and 2 100% acrylic top coats. Duration is OK but over hyped IMO and a lifetime warranty as you are thinking does not exist

I read diychatroom, paintalk, contractortalk.. I read them all.

Over and over again I see professional painters saying duration is the best thing out there.. if you can get the home owner to spring for it, buy it.

I read for 5+ hrs on these forums.. Then everyone says SW kills valspar.. I listened and went to SW. So I spent the little extra money and got duration. Then I have people telling me I wasted my money.

I did what people said and got SW.. then I did what the rest of the forums said and made my SW choice duration.

Confusing BS IMO.. who cares. It is sitting in my garage now. And even if I "wasted my money". I have wasted a hell of alot more by buying cheap stuff and getting bit.

If anyone has words to help me get it on the house and fence I would appreciate it. My house has a texture (fake cedar lap board) and getting the paint out of the striations is impossible. I am just taking the loose stuff off. A scraper sucks because it is for flat surfaces. Should I use a powerwasher then wait a couple days and paint? Looks like the next week it will be 50 during the day and 35 at night with chances of rain every other day.

Use what you got you already bought it, dont stress over it. I would probably use the powerwasher very carefully give some drying time, we're getting a couple of nice days and the worst you can do is panic or rush. do one side at a time and if it doesnt get finished there's always next spring.

I had a shed to paint before winter and rushed to get it done but all I got was primer on it. next spring I reprimered and painted with no problem

I went back to the posts to see what was said about duration and what I got was that if you can get the other person to pay for it they would use it but if I would have to pay for it i would use a-100 or the next one up.

I have used SW AND BM and Pitsburg ppg great paint and I have been cheap and done lowes and cheapo there is a big difference stay with the SW
