Re: Which Flat Paint From Sherwin Williams In A Million Dollar Home 3,300 Sq Ft


Is it true CHB stands for Chicago home builders? My rep was telling me a story about how it was specifically formulated for a massive HUD project and it sold so well, they kept selling it. Said it's sole purpose was to Hide, but not do much else.

It sure does the hiding part quite well.

Some of the stories reps tell you, you gotta have a hard time believing.

Yeah Yeah Yeah.... My son busts on me about the 2 1/2" all the time.

I have tried 3" & 4" brushes many times, and they are a bit faster, but I love how my 2 1/2 Wooster feels, and the control I have with it.

I love my 3" Straight Wooster for cutting. It gives you the same stroke pushing or pulling.

I would use SuperPaint or Emerald. Haven't used Cashmere.

Spray and back-roll. If it needs 2 coats, you can just back-roll the 2nd coat. It covers great. I'm sure Cashmere will be fine.

Now why do you let it dry?

I paint it while it's wet so it blends better and there's no flashing.

The unspoken rule of painting is to always try and keep a wet edge. If you let your edging dry, then, rolling over that area will put on 2 coats in areas where the roller goes onto the dried edging.

If you cut in a room or even one wall the cut in is already tacking up by the time you start rolling. That's the last thing you want and will look exceptionally bad. The unspoken rule applies while brushing or rolling keep a wet edge not between the rolling and cutting. I don't have issues with flashing between cutting and rolling the worst problems I've had with flashing is when the drywall hasn't been sealed.

Keeping a wet edge when rolling paint across walls isn't that hard. Edge the top and bottom 6' ahead of you. Maintaining a wet film has it's real advantages over letting the edging dry.

I think we've wandered off the OP's topic.

That's probably one of the dumbest methods I've ever heard suggested.

You do painting exclusively? Who are you speaking for? Remodlers like yourself and such, or, day in and day out painting contractors?

Can we make this last, or will it just be over?

Seriously this needs to be put to bed.

Cut ahead of yourself as far as you can, but don't let the cut-in dry before you come back and roll. it's that simple. Can you get away with letting it dry? sure. but this is the best practice.

Re: Which Flat Paint From Sherwin Williams In A Million Dollar Home 3,300 Sq Ft


I've been doing this for 43 years, full time painter for 25. I now do mostly remodeling. Casion we know you don't understand what remodeling is, you can't even spell it correctly.

You don't need to be a full time painter to know something about painting. If I saw anyone on my job cutting in 6ft, grabbing a roller, rolling 6ft over and over again you'd be fired.

And if you're asking for tact from me.....good luck.
