ALL! paint companies make cheap shit (painter maintenance) and good stuff. ANY companies company bottom line is gonna be crappy, and this is a universal characteristic.

Paint seems to always be changing. About 5-6 years ago I went with Sherwin Williams Superpaint. I wanted to avoid the box store paint. I honestly hated it. It never coated well and wasn’t a super bargain (although I did always get 30% off having an account and asking). Their white trim paint always needed more than one coat and usually 3, over primed doors/trim. Wall colors also always needed 2 coats (no matter what color I covered). I honestly switched up to cheap Home Depot Behr paint (would have to look at the exact product) and it covered the same for half the price.

I have some Ben Moore paint I will be painting my master bathroom with today or tomorrow. It did well in the kitchen, however that was a tiny amount of wall area.

When I said we went with SW I recall it being their duration line and we did one wall in an odd color (plum) using emerald that the shop gave us to try when it was a new product. Had very good coverage but being so dark required two coats. We stayed with Duration for everything else.

^^^This, just buy the top of the line paint, figure 2 coats, and a top quality cutting in brush with a steady hand for the edges and corners.

I had a painting company for a few years. You pay for what you get. I just painted a room for my MIL last year I used PPG diamond. Room was used as storage/spare bedroom, and not been painted for a number of years. She wanted to make it an office so it was s surprise.

Lol. I live in what may be the exact opposite of a HOA. I live on what used to be the family dairy farm. It's pretty redneckville here.

I hired a paint contractor several years back. They used SW 200. The paint job looked great, but the paint damaged fairly easily in the couple places where I bumped the walls when moving furniture.

Yeah, as I mentioned in my original post, there’s no Benjamin Moore near me, so I won’t be going with them.

That’s good to know. Thank you.

Agree. I have repainted my entire house....more than once. I tried Sherwin Williams (from SW store), Benjamin Moore and Behr. Hands down the Behr Marquee One Coat has been the best paint I have used. I ended up painting a bathroom 4 times with Benjamin Moore to get it to cover over a darker color, Sherwin Williams was better. If you can find the color you want in the Behr Marquee One Coat and you you only want to paint it once it worked for me.

**Disclaimer** Each paint mfg makes different grades of paint and some grades are not available in certain colors. I do not know what SW's or BM's equal to Behr Marqee One Coat is or if I used their best when I had such disastrous results. Typically when painting I ask for the best because my time is more valuable than saving a couple of bucks on paint and I HATE painting.


That makes two of us that hates painting. Lol. I had a bad experience with Behr paint back in the mid-90s, but for all I know (too long ago to remember) it might’ve been their low end paint I was using at the time. A few other folks I know had issues with Behr paint back then as well. But we’re talking 25 yrs ago. Was just talking with my brother who lives in Florida and he’s painting the exterior of his house with Behr paint. He has nothing but good things to say about Behr and so do a couple of his buddies down there.

FWIW - Consumer Reports tests paints all the time. Behr (their premium) has come out on top for the last few years in nearly all categories.

I would recommend it and I will use it again. It flows nice and I work fast. I’ve used every type of paint you can think of. From stuff at the re-use store that’s $15 for 5 gallons (it’s a grey color) to commercial outdoor stuff that’s $1450 for 5 gallons.

SW ProMar 200. Behr is better than Valspar but they are both crap IMO, they don’t cover or lay-off nearly as well as the SW.

Another vote for sw promar200. After owning a painting company for ten years I learned there is no such thing as 1 coat coverage no matter what ur putting it over or what paint your using.

We are using Sherwin Williams Cashmere Low Lustre (Eggshell) for our new house. We primed and sanded the walls and ceilings with 2 coats of First Coat and the paint job has turned out amazing. Set up a commercial account and save near 50% off retail.

Any of the bigger suppliers will work, including Ben Moore....pay the extra $20 a gallon and get the better grade of paint....
