since you are a new poster i'll let you in on something. It's been pretty much determined on this forum that the main criteria used by the majority of members for determining which paint to use is simply paint store convenience. It has very little to do with quality,i.e. specs,coverage etc. Just how close the paint store is.

Don't forget price. Can we talk about price?

And although it would fulfill one's imagination that most painters buy at the big box stores, most of the convenient stores in my area, are those that sell BM, SW, KM, PPG, Devoe, etc.

BTW, eperot has several PT years of posting on you.

See this is why we can't get along. I asked point blank a couple of months ago what the biggest determining factor in what paint people used and the number one answer by far was store location. At least by the way you all jumped my 5hit that was what i thought we had determined. And how much lower of a price do you need to drive an extra 10 minutes? 30 minutes? An hour? If you are getting it that much cheaper is it an equivalent quality? And wouldn't a much cheaper paint cost you more in labor than what you saved per gallon?

Then why oh why do I have regular customers driving that extra hour EACH WAY several times a month? Because my paint is CHEAPER? Nope. The guys who only want cheap paint go to SW.

As a repaint specialist from Florida for over 20 years , I have used SWP superpaint , colorwheel Optima , BM moorgard , Porter Acrishield , Portersept satin , Glidden premium and the dreaded Russian mascot from The home depot . What I have experienced was that Colorwheel Optima , and SWP superpaint holds up the best overall in Our climate , with Porters Acrishield and portersept coming in next . The ones that faded the quickest where BM moorgard , Behr premium , and Glidden premium ! The paint that takes the longest to have mildew grow on the surface is Colorwheels Optima , and Portersept satin ! Because of availability , pricing and that Colorwheel is no longer in business ( SWP bought them out and priced Optima at to high of a price ) and Porter is 40 miles away I use Superpaint satin on most of my repaints ! Of course everyones experiance is going to be different because of location , prep , colors , and application methods !

I am partial to BM. I really liked California 2010 as well, but it did fade pretty bad in 7-8 years of exposure on exterior.

Aura is my favorite interior wall paint. It has great coverage with microfibers (I like 9/16ths).

Reasons for BM?
1. Available at many stores in my area.

2. Wide selection of products and good colors. Fewer custom matches to deal with, can usually get a customer to pick a BM color and they will have a suitable product in their line up. The fewer custom matches the better.

3. A BM store is 2,241 feet from my shop. And they have great service.

You know your climate better than I do. I live in Indiana. So this is not to debate your statement. Why would Super paint be better than Duration? and The same question with Porters Acrishield better than Permanizer?

We do have a do it Best store here in town that carries the California paints. With your knowledge,tell me this. What California exterior paint would I ask for that is comparable or better product than Porters Permanizer?
