Re: Glidden Paint ?


Here in the UK the best (& most expensive) paint is I.C.I. Dulux. Glidden is the cheaper line from the same manufacturer and i would usually avoid it apart from perhaps mist coats(sealing new plaster). I have yet to find a better product than Dulux and that goes for their fillers and caulk too. Over here we also have a number of "designer" paints too that are REALLY expensive but you're paying for their "exclusive" colours because the paint itself is usually rubbish.

I was told it really didn't matter what brand/company to buy, just buy their best paint they offered. It will be good paint. Buying their mid to low end grades will be the short comings.

Re: Glidden Paint ?


Glidden is the bottom of the barrel. I still use it on occasions to spray ceilings,
but walls? I used it on a new construction my first year... and I'm still regretting it... (call backs). Anyone who paints regularly or for a living has to agree with me... I use Ben Moore for everything right now....but love California also.

We use Benjamin Moore mostly too.
I wouldn't say that ICI/Glidden is junk though,
they have some lines that are comparable to anybody else's.
They are not one of the biggest companies in the world (bigger than B.Moore)for selling junk.
Their Lifemaster product is good, comparable to Ecospec.
their top line here in Canada compares to anyone else's.
In my 20 years as a Paint Contractor,
I can't say there are too many top line paints I don't like (BEHR excluded).
I just like to leave the brand wars to the manufacturers.
The brand I care the most about is our own.

Re: Glidden Paint ?


I think Glidden lost a lot when ICI decide to put it in big box retailers and sell Dulux as there top product in the ICI store..

I agree every paint has a top and a bottom... I personally think BM is average at best and there price reflects a lot of name more then product... But when something is spec'd 80% of my time to BM I use it and deal with it.

Re: Glidden Paint ?


I use Glidden 90% of the time I like their products. I would put it up against any of the top paints I have used. I am not a fan of SW many are so it may just be me. The problem Glidden had is they left their name on the can when selling junk through the big box stores. Buy their best and enjoy.

Re: Glidden Paint ?


.. what's a "big box store". Sorry if this is obvious but it's not an expression we have here in England.

A big box store is a home depot or lowes.

Re: Glidden Paint ?


I get the general consensus is that you prime and then paint for desired result. I am having a tough time with BM distributor advocating no priming needed for BM Aura paint. Anyone run into this? I am told that the mfg is also recommending no priming. What gives?

Re: Glidden Paint ?


Benjamin Moore's Aura is a cutting edge specialty paint that has not been on the market long. BM advocates no primer as does our dealer here. I would still use a primer over new drywall and new texture. This product is a new coating chemistry that uses it's own tinting colors and has some real benefits such as true flat washability, without color bleed among others. In my experience, the one coat coverage claim is dubious. To paraphrase the Will Ferrell character, 80% of the time, it works everytime! All things considered, it's a good product. The drawback is cost.

Go to Behr.com and see some really cool stuff.

How did you convince Home Depot to give you a better discount?

Won't the D.I.Y. weekend warrior know nothing hacks get jealous?
