I think both are high, I like to use super paint or duration because their quality shows, and I want to take good care of my customers. Keep them happy keep the business happy, right?

Have been thinking of opening an account with BM because some clients prefer this product. Really don't know diddly squat about it. What's the deal?

Alright yeah that's exactly what I try to do most of the time, paint for me has been hit and miss. Sometimes it's tuff to estimate how much paint it's going to take, so I usually under estimate or would much rather have the home owner purchase it.

Always have the homeowners pick out the colors, sheens I usually have to explain to them. "We would like our bathroom to be in a nice flat" j/k

Thanks PT
PM200 = super spec
Super paint = regal select
Duration = aura

Obviously they don't match up 100% but that's how I view it. Price wise they're pretty close to each other too.

I think you're giving Sw too much credit there.
I'd say
Super paint - ultra spec ext both 25 year warranty
Duration / regal select high build. That's how my rep compared them
Emerald : Aura. They're both "our finest paint ever". Sw even copied bm's tag line for that one.

That's how I'd line them up as well, thanks Damon for saving me the typing.

Yeah, you're prolly right and I was gonna add at the bottom that the BM lines are a notch above the sw lines. Price wise they're pretty close with sw being a little cheaper and I completely forgot about Emerald.
