Never Again


I was supplied paint on my last two jobs where I did trim and drywall work.

Told then I did'nt like that particular brand(big box,big name). But went ahead using it. Self priming is such a crock of sh And yes I did preprime all repairs.

Never,never,never again!

Re: Never Again


Many home owners can't make the quality distinction with paint. Durability, washability, and color permanence aren't as easy for them to measure as "easy to roll" and "inexpensive". And big box paint isn't really that inexpensive any more.

From now on I'm gonna keep it simple . I won't use a certain brand because :
IT DOESN'T STICK TO ANYTHING VERY WELL .

Re: Never Again


I also used another brand (on my from doors) touted by the big box . 1st coat seemed
ok , 2nd coat the next day and it never really cured , stayed slightly tacky for weeks .
Enough to stick to the weather strip . No sun exposure , left the doors open overnight ,
normal humidity etc. and it didn't cover worth a s**t ! The worst paint ever .

Re: Never Again


The self-priming bit has never worked well for me, whether it be Behr or Benjamin Moore.

The only sf paint that worked well over patches was permawhite. That's in my experience. Other big brands mean that it just cover better in low hiding tints
