Default sherwin williams explanation pls

Well here in Vancouver BC Canada, the biggest names are General Paint, ICI, and Benjamin Moore.

Personally, I only use General Paint unless I have to use BM... but there is a Sherwin Williams store nearby. I have only ever had one customer ask for them in all my experience, and having never even been there, I wonder a lot about their products.

Could someone please tell me which are the top of the line products for each application, should I ever want to use it: (just latex stuff)

interior walls:
interior trim:
exterior stucco:
exterior shingles or wood siding:
primer for bare wood:
primer for metal and other:
interior primer for drywall:

thanks

I've had decent results with the woodscapes/deckscapes line for semi-stains on decks. It would be alright for shakes as well. But I would use either Ben moore or Diamond vogel now. I won't do business with them anymore, unless it meant bothering a very valued customer.

SW is a large corporation. There is a possibility that one or more of the paints you have used in the past were made by a company owned by SW.

Some of the paints, coating and other products retain the original names because of brand Identification.

Two examples:

Purdy
Krylon

One of the contributors here may stain his shingles, to my knowledge there is no total cure.
