Default I did it...

So, I used bear premium plus ext flat today on some stuff.

It actually was pretty good

Was a super dark brown. Covered great and applied real easy. I used a proform 3in angle brush.

Believe me, I was upset, torn, ashamed, and felt like throwing my brush at the horses... But then I used it and I was mildly impressed.

Keyword is MILDLY.

Around Boston, Whitey Bolger is MILDY impressive

I think many of us would not be at the height of our profession if we only MILDY impressed our clients, or were deemed PRETTY GOOD - - although there are some . . . . .

I didn't have to buy it so there's that...

It actually looks good! She was happy today. Client satisfaction is worth a bit more to me than PT members

Customer satisfaction is the key.

When I used B**R here in my home strictly to discover what all the hoopla was about, I was mildly impressed it did not cause the earth to reverse rotation .

Over the years as it ages, I am understanding the level of disfavor it has earned from the pros.

I totally agree. It looks wonderful and applied eith ease. Its longterm durability is doubtful and is why I always avoid it.

Disfavor it has earned from the pros?

Please explain what to expect from interior behr paint at $24.00 per gallon (as in ages), as apposed to Sherwin Williams / Benjamin Moore $24.00 per gallon (as in ages)?

What signs of paint failure should I look for regarding behr interior painting aging, and how many years after its application? 3 years, 5 years, 10 years?

And specifically, which behr product did you use in your home? What surfaces did you paint: walls? ceilings? trim and doors? and which sheens?

Can you give me the TOP reasons why most HO's have interior painting done? Honestly, I find that most HO's repaint (interior), due to a desire for color change, not paint failure.

I would also like to add, that ALL interior paints lose their luster due to: cigarette smoke, candles, fireplace, hand oils, grime, kids, abuse, ie: leaning stuff against walls - boxes, broom handle and other household gagets.

I have found that 100% of my clients repaint due to the above home elements. Not paint aging poorly.

I put Bword Semigloss on some cabinets for a guy a few years back in a rental house. I went back a couple of years later to do some work between renters and the paint on the cabinets held up well. But I'm a paperhanger so what do I know.......

Sorry, I'm getting flashbacks of being deposed by a gang of lawyers.
