Of course he did :whistling2:

Benjamin Moore and SW are two of the best for interior.

I get excellent results with dollar store paint.


Just kidding

The best is only available from Industrial Suppliers. But for home owners painting a wall I would say C2 is the best out there right now.

Actually, the best paints in the world are probably those used to paint commercial airplanes.

Those paints have to be VERY colourfast, they can't fade from exposure to UV light from the Sun, and above the clouds where most planes spend much of their time, there isn't a lot of shade.

They have to tolerate rapid changes in temperature, like on a flight from Washington, up to 30,000 feet where it's -35 deg. F, land in Honolulu where it's 90 deg. F and not crack or peel.

And, they have to adhere well to the substrate. I don't know of any house paint that would stay stuck to the walls inside a wind tunnel at 700 mph air speed.

Automotive spray paints will cost from $150 to $400 for a quart, and I expect the paints they use on airplanes are at least that much.

Now you know why they use different binders, pigments and additives in house paints to keep the price down to $35 per gallon.

It all depends on what you are looking for! That is a broad question.

There is none
The Best Paint depends on your application, financial, quality, availability, and idiosyncratic technique requirements and desires

If one paint met everyone's needs, soon (ie: by now) there would be no others

Behr
 
I've never had a problem with Behr. I used it in every room in my house with the exception of the kitchen. I actually like the Behr semi-gloss for trim better than the SW cashmere. Plus it's about 10-15 dollars cheaper. I think it's pretty decent paint regardless of what some contractors may think.

One and one person only. You must not understand what makes a quality paint. Do not post when you have no idea as to what you are talking about. This is one of the worst paints on the market.:furious:
Just to learn by trial by some C2 and make a comparison to your Behr. One coat. Scrub clean after drying to test durability. Then appreciate a real paint quality.
