The SW line....


So what's the difference between Superpaint, Cashmere and Duration?

Sherwin Williams Interior Paints

I think the most common usage is Superpaint on most of the interior walls. Duration for high traffic areas, kitchen and bathrooms (for it's scrub ability - but it does have a sheen) and pro classic on trim and doors. No experience with cashmere

I read that already... however to my novice eye, they all look the same to me... high hiding, durable finish, latex, etc. Beyond the basics, what is there to know?

ooops sorry Bubba, looks like I was adding to my post when you posted. Sherwin-Williams is having a preferred customer sale this weekend - 30% off on most paints, I think it is 20% on duration

Sign up on their web site for their preferred customer program and they email you when they are having a sale. Here is a screen shot, all you have to do is mention the sale to the sales associate

I think Cashmere is supposed to have a very smooth finish, with superior leveling compared to the other SWP paints. Whether or not the reduction of roller stipple is a good thing depends on how smooth and even the surface is. Also, I don't think it is as durable as Duration.

Tell us a little about your project and we can help you out.

Duration is overkill for certain projects, Cashmere won't do anything great for you if your project is a repaint and you already have roller texture on the wall.

Superpaint is their core product, so probably the best, but share a little more and we can help you better. It isn't their most durable though, so if you're doing a hallway or something like a dining room or kitchen which may be susceptible to spills you may want to go up to Duration.

The decision was made for me. The color we were after is a pretty deep red and they only made the base in Duration... so Duration it is. But for the rest of the house, your info will come in very handy. This is painting an addition to the house, so I am thinking SuperPaint for the rest will be fine and ProClassic for trim.
