Well, you weren't to know at the time, but now, thank to this bb, you can read the hundreds of opinions on Behr paints. I am not suggesting that's the problem and I'm not using them as a scapegoat - but performance weaknesses are what dozens of pros have complained about.

I mean it's not the brush or a roller cover or the painting technique that gets the bad press, nor do you live in a place where painting is impossible. So what else is there? Sure, dirty walls, too thin a coat, blah, blah, blah.

But no other paint company draws that much fire unless they market an inferior product. So, you have to conclude there's something to it...so why be the guinea pig trying it out on your dime? Just use good stuff and be done with it...that's my credo - and I do this for money.

But always using Benjamin Moore has steered me well over 5 years now, no complaints either so I don't see how a guy like you, in normal conditions has a problem when there are guys out there who paint every day who crap on Behr...as I said I can't afford to return to a paying customer for a recall. I work for insurance companies too and if I can't afford a recall, they sure can't.

That's why they employ me...I don't mess around saving $20 on a gallon of Behr; I haven't the volume to compare paint types - I rely on the pros here to guide me a bit - but that's where we all agree.

Thanks. I have used BM in the past and started using it again and am very happy with it. I actually used the Aura line a few years ago and was very happy with that, but it was a little expensive.
