Default If you only had one interior paint

If you could only use one interior paint for best cost and best product, what would that interior paint be? (I'm talking wall paint here.) You have to use this paint only for the next five years. what would it be?

Ben. Most bang for the buck, and also low VOC for customers wanting that. Probably fit the widest customer base.

Ben is a decent product. I don't think its worth more than promar 200 though.

200 and super spec are close to the same imo. super spec has a thicker viscosity in most cases. But super spec reds suck azz for coverage. Super spec is cheaper in price.

I decided on super spec. I can get that in more places. sw can be out of the way at times.

I hate super spec. Only time I would use is if I could spray and not have to backroll it. It rolls on tough and slows production.

I used to love Old Quaker Isogloss when I was in California. Now I'd pick Sherwin Williams Southwest Builders.

I add a fair amount of water to it to make it work decent. I've been working with it for years. Back when it was just called moorecraft. I like 200 hundred lo sheen eggshell. especially when you are going over crap drywall or crap primer.

I don't like to add water to my paint, especially for interiors.
