Had to stir my Behr paint with something didn't I? You could use two back-to-back j-Beads.

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.
Well sorry about that..Sorry you're offended and took it so personally. You must really be into paint Bob. I didn't know there were paint diva's in this forum. I was just posting my experience...I just put Behr on my walls and it looks and seems to be holding up well. What is C2? Sorry I don't know and you can make a smart comment if you'd like. I could care less.

The best paint, imho, would have to be the Dow Corning stuff made for NASA....withstands re-entry. 'Course, we'd probably all have to sell our homes and pool our assets to buy a gallon of it

I kinda like the stuff the cavemen used. A lot of it is still there today. 10,000 year warranty.

The best architectural paint in the world is Fine Paints Of Europe. They use no fillers or extenders and the very best pigments.

Since my knowledge of paint quality pretty much ends at "Ooooooh, pretty colors!" I'm kind of glad to see this thread since I'm trying to learn more. Is Valspar a low quality interior paint? If I can afford it, would it be wiser to switch to Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore?

Kind of a ridiculous question- because nothing is defined. What might be the best for walls will not be the best for trim. And what if your painting watertowers? see... The painting world is very large.

And are you looking for quality to price- or just quality? What is the definition of "best"

Someone recently said that consumer reports rated Strohs beer as the best- and here in the Mpls Metro area I can easily name 5 local brewers that can blow that off the map. For example..

Very Opened question. Now if the OP asked what Paint would be best to use on say Cement siding or on new drywall I can give a few paints that I enjoy using.
From my own humble opinion. These companies make the best paint.
1 Sherwin Williams
2. Kelly-Moore
3. Parker Paints
4 Rodda Paints
5. Benjamin Moore
Those are the companies that I like that are brand name
Off lable paints I enjoy are
Pratt & Lambert "made by Sherwin Williams"
Do it best paint " made by Sherwin Williams"

Paints that are pure junk and are only called paint because it comes in a can ad has color. Glidien paint, Color time paints from Wal-mart Kilz paint. Any Paint and primer in one paint. Paints from a big box store like Bher paint.
