Comment:
This is the first CR Top Pick that has ever left me disappointed. I used Behr a few years ago and swore I would never use it again after being a loyal Glidden user for 20+ years. After reading that it rivaled Sherwin Williams at half the price, I gave it a shot-what a mistake. It was SO watery that I can't imagine trying to use it in an airless sprayer (my usual exterior tool of choice). <br /><br />Sherwin Williams is great, just too pricy for the difference. I get equally good flow, great spray results and great coverage from Glidden, so I'm going back to what I know works.

Comment:
3/5 years ago paint was lots easier to use, the epa changed all that.<br />paint was fun and easy to use, great stuff. there was lots of very good paints.<br /><br />i have some rental properties that i maintain, i use about 25 gallons of paint a year. doesn't make me an expert, however i do know what i like and find easy to use.<br /><br />i do not think there is any paint that will cover in 1 coat anymore, at least not to my standards.<br /><br />i try the new paint formulations as they come out from brands available to me, i live in a small town, we have a lowes, benjamin moore shop, ace and sherwin williams dealer here in town, i drive about 40 miles, one way, to a home depot to get behr, not because i like to drive, but because i absolutly hate to use inferior paint.<br /><br />beher certainly isn't as good as it used to be, but for me it is worth the time and expense to go get
