Default I need your help to prove my dad wrong.

I've been getting paint Promar 400 from SW for about 75 bucks a 5.


He claims that you can get a 5 that DR Horton uses from SW for less than 40 dollars.


He's been painting for 20 years and used to work for DR Horton but I seriously don't believe him.


I'm going to ask SW tomorrow but if I could get an answer right now, it would be great.

I live in Texas.


Is it true?

That is not a very high quality paint, so it could be a correct price. One gallon I buy of Aura cost about $45 or so.

DR Horton homes probably buys more paint then all of us combined. Am sure they get the DEEP deal.

PM 400 comes in flat, eggshell, low-sheen eggshell, semi-gloss. which sheen are you talking about

5 gallons of flat can be had for way less than 75.00, it all depends on how much you use
