Default Sherwin williams prices increase

Wtf? Really another increase I am paying as much as 3.00 more a gallon no wonder most painters are giving just a labor bid and homeowner buys paint.

There's a reason all of the specialty paint stores are raising prices. Raws are still going up, titanium oxide costs kore everyday and if American companies don't buy it at whatever price is asked China will buy it up.

If your favorite stores prices aren't going up they're probably afraid to lose the business and eating the cost. I can relate.....

Yet AGAIN another price raise...this is like groundhog's day.

I noticed the price difference on the receipt, and I said to the new guy(thinking he has me mixed up with someone else's prices)---I've been paying less for this Resilience during this entire job------only to find out...........................

enough already!

Titanium dioxide is definitely continuing to rise. 5 years ago, approximately $2.00 per gallon (on a 'white' or 'pastel' base) was from TiO2. Now, it is nearly double that.

To those of you reading this thread, PaintChef has another thread titled "Questions, Questions, Questions", that he'd like some input on. I think it would be a good idea to read it thoroughly and give your professional views on it.

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
