guess i havn't had a problem with applying a flat white to ceilings before. But I try to get my customers to have white ceilings as opposed to tinted. Maybe i'm not as much of a perfectionist. Yeah, primer sheen could be an issue, depending. Anyway, muresco has been just fine for me, also i've used super hide, and had decent results. I dont think about using expensive lines on ceilings if its a flat. I've had good results and think its just a waste of money for ceiling flat. Just my opinion

The first time I used the WB I loved it. The second time it was a disaster and the ceiling was a complete redo, dried way too fast and left roller marks everywhere.

Default Best Paints

I have used Sherwin Williams Paints since the early 80's and have been pleased with their line of products. For the most they stand behind what they sell and there like bars theres one on every corner. But recently I had a problem with somthing they sold to me to get it off their shelves. I spent nearly $1400.00 on this product and it didn't work. They looked at the job and basicly told me so sad to bad. Maybe it's time for a change.

I am not loyal to any brand. I like certain paints for different applications from each manufacturer. Sometimes I think it might be easier to use one store and brand, but no one brand has everything I like.

I use a lot of interior and exterior Aura since it is the best paint on the market, or at least I sell it that way. It definitely is a great paint to work with once you are used to it and the coverage is awesome.

I use a lot of PPG/Porter Ceramic Matte since it is also an easy sell. It is really flat for a matte product and it is scrubbable. It also covers well, but is always a two coat product, it never seems seems to cover in one even when going over a similar color. Two gallons is still less than one gallon of Aura.

Ceiling paint is still up in the air for me. I like BM superhide, but it is expensive compared to Porter or SW, and I have not been able to see any difference in finish comparatively. I pay less than $10 for CHB and Porter ceiling white, so usually go with either of those even in higher end homes.

On trim I almost exclusively use PPG/Porter Glyptex Oil-based. It is so easy to work with and the coverage is really good (do need to add Penatrol).

We have been using quite a bit of SW on commercial work and have been really impressed with the coverage and finish of SuperPaint and Cashmere.

Ya! Getting housed by a supplier sucks. that's why I don't understand when painters don't fallow specs. If you don't you just created a loop hole.

But in reality, the new WB Ceiling Paint has issues going over "old builder's paint" (sometimes merely decades old primer), so it's a case by case thing

You are absolutely right about that, after the last fiasco I will never EVER use WB without priming first.
