Default flashing or roller marks?

I painted with Behr flat enamel, does the enamel create a shine or did I do something wrong? little confussed on the difference of FLAT and FLAT ENAMEL. The owner hates it ! However at her request, it is only one coat, so could that be the problem?

Now adays their are so many names for paint at differnt shine levels you have to be careful. You have to find out what the homeowner wants. Duration home matt is another example its called matt so I would think its flat, imo it has a shine of a eggshell or satin. Behr has seven or six differnt interior shine levels. So if she wants a paint with no shine, enamel flat from behr probaly has to much shine.

The second coat will only get more shiney, you better switch to a true flat paint. I think the paint manufactures have really made it hard to understand the shiine levels with all the differnt names they give them, its your job to try to idenify the needs of the client and get the product best for the application, getting familiar with a good local paint store that has knowledgeable people behind the counter is a big plus, i try to stay away from HD and Lowes for advice, unless I already know the answere to the question. lol

A painter would be able to tell if it was the paint or something he'd done wrong. This place is for professional painter's discussions - You'll get better advice over at the DIY forum There's some real helpful and knowledgable people there who will be able to help you out

Good luck!

More than one pro would say what you did wrong was to use Behr.

But what do I know, I never used the stuff since the very early 90's - I listen to my brethren about their problems w/ it

I would switch to a true deadflat paint. Many paints that claim to be flat have a bit of a sheen.

Don't worry about what questions you ask here. There are many "seasoned pros" out there that have questions they want to ask but don't. I have asked some pretty basic questions on here that I probably should have known. I consider myself a pro with plenty of knowledge. However, this site is intended to help each other learn. No question is a dumb question in my opinion. Ask away my man!
