Default PPG vs. Sherwin

As a new painter planning to start on horse stables and farm structures, what should I know about the differences between working with PPG and SW? What do painters think about the two stores and what is one good at more than the other? Appreciate all advice.

I think you will find they both carry a vast selection of products in their arsenal. If you get to know your store managers and sales reps you can get better quotes on the products you most use. Both are very big international companies. I think you will really find they both carry a vast selection of products in their arsenal.

PPG is a LOT less expensive, with good quality.

Can anyone tell me a paint that ppg wonder pro and wonder tones is comparable to? My local store doesn’t carry the entire ppg lineup, and it’s tough to rank the vast # of ppg paints. They push these two paints exclusively, but not manor hall or pure performance. I d love to hear some insight from some of you guys that work at paint stores.

Wondertone and Wonderpro are actually the old Devoe products now being sold under the Pittsburgh Paints brand name. They are supposed to be exclusive to independent dealers, so you may be talking about an independent PPG dealer and not a company owned store. The independent dealers do however have access to the entire PPG product line, but may not carry everything depending on the market and customers they serve. The PPG company owned stores will normally have a much bigger product selection. That may be why your store doesn't push the Manor Hall and Pure performance product lines.

for barn paint, whichever is closer to your house or the job. Convenience is the #1 factor in choosing a paint store.
