I have had nothing but trouble with Valspar's Interior Signature Paint.

The paint is not covering in one coat like it's suppose to going from
yellow to a tan & a light brown color.

With a lot of other interior paint's I've not had this much trouble.

I have to put an extra heavy coat on & cannot seem to get the paint
to blend in when I go a little dry with the roller.

The sheen like semi-gloss or satin is not the best & there's areas
on the wall where the sheen is not all uniform & when I try and
touch up the sheen is much better & noticeable than the rest of
the wall, I've had to re-paint three wall's already.

Is there a reasonable priced interior paint besides the $40 a gallon
paint like Sherwin-Williams that would not be so troublesome to work
with that would be better I'm painting a church.

I usually do two coats on my painting projects. Rarely would one coat work with a color change, especially one with a sheen. IMO. :thumbsup:

I agree with Sir, the only time i will do 1 coat is if it's the exact same color and sheen, always look at 2 coats. As far as the price of paint, you get what you pay for. I've recently switched from BM to SW simply for economics, I now use the Opulence line from SW and my price in Canada ( which I assume is higher then my USA brothers) is $36 a gallon before taxes. It covers well, looks good when it's on the wall and is very easy to apply.

Yellow is the hardest color to do in one coat IMO.

I have gone from baby blue to beige in one coat last year, with SW's most expensive paint at the time. It covered amazingly (rolling), can't tell it's not 2 coats.
