Trim and door paint
 
Hokay.....now to pick trim paint.

Would like a water based and will be going with a basic white. No kids in the house but I have a couple of Blue Heelers that in their rush to get outside sometimes try to go head first through a closed door so will need something tough if there is such a thing. They don't scratch - just are not the most graceful dawgs.

I have read good things about SW Solo but apparently the local SW does not stock it down here because it "does not do well in the humid south" ProClassic is what is used down here.

I have also read about the BM Satin Impervo as well but not sure I can get that down here either and I have no idea what it costs per gallon. Can someone give me a guesstimate? The BM online store is down and has never worked for me to even get a rough idea.

I have 16 doors, bout a 1000' of crown and the same for base base trim that is all basically NC that needs to be primed and painted. Will be priming prior to finish coat. Assuming primer plus 2 coats?

BTW does anyone know how to exact match keyword search....if you search trim paint you get 9 million matches that have the words trim and paint in them....kind of annoying.

Thanks

Robyn

The pro classic is a great trim paint.It takes some getting used to it will sag if you put it on too thick.2 light coats are better than one thick coat.Yes prime new trim and 2 coats of paint.Even after priming the first coat of paint will still soak in quite a bit.

Search Google for
trim paint
and you get 65 million results. Search Google for
"trim paint"
and you get 350 thousand results.

Thanks Jeff. I guess I should have clarified I was talking about exact match search on here. Not sure what BB software is running this site but I know they each have code strings to limit the search and the usual ones I know didn't work.

Not really any paints out there that are impervious to the scratching claws of pets. Some of the old, hard, oil-based gloss paints held up well only showing small scratch marks. Proclassic is pretty good stuff and will hold up fairly well, but, you will have touch-ups from time to time.

Oh. Yeah, search usually sucks on fora like this. Kind of ironic, since the answer to every third post is "use the search function" :)

Pro classic is a pretty hard paint if your dawgs aren't scratchers I really don't see any problems. But as mentioned there is a bit of a learning curve. If you decide to go this route come back and we can help.

Yep SW proclassic ALL THE WAY.
