Default Hello from So Cal

Hi everyone, I own 8 mobile home parks throughout Southern California. We have several hundred travel trailers, mobile homes, and several parks with houses within them. People are always moving in / out / or destroying something keeping us busy running a crew of guys to make sure everything looks to be in tip top shape, thus seemingly painting non stop. Glad to have found the forum and thanks for the great resource that paint talk is.

Welcome! I assume you have a go to paint that touches up well and is a stock color if you're painting any type of rental that often. What is it? I use Masterhide and Impressions myself. Masterhide covers better and Impressions touches up better. Both are not ideal to roll.

I'm sure you have some awesome stories too!

Have you noticed Masterhide being kinda thin lately?

You mean compared to itself? Like the formula has changed? I'm not dipping a brush in it often its mostly spray so I have not noticed. As long as it keeps touching up over itself and doesn't get too expensive I'm happy.

Yeah I meant compared to itself. SW told me a couple months back they changed the formula and since then it seems thinner.

I don't spray it often, mostly brush and roll on ceilings.

Gibberish, yes, over the last several years we have been buying from Vista Paints and Dunn Edwards. Mostly, we have used Vista Coverall for interior work, and Vista Carefree for exterior; or Sparta wall and Sparta shield in Dunn. Most of our exteriors are painted to last as there isn't much abuse there. However, the interiors can be a war zone. About a month ago I opened an account with SW and have used there Sonoran, Property Solutions, and Pro Mar 200 on nicer units. Still up in the air as to which one of the bunch I like the best, but SW service has been like a red carpet roll out, but I think it might be because the one I'm using is brand new and still slow on work.

As far as having trailer stories..... it never ends!

Barron, if you haven't tried Vista's acriglo line already, try it. Its a good production product at a decent price. I have been disappointed in coverall performance as far as coverage. Acriglo may be slightly more (depending on your pricing) but the extra cost washes away through coverage.

Welcome to the forum.

Ewing, I have used acriglo many times but switched to coverall due to price and because we often are painting over the same color, and are just brightening up the rental unit. Acriglo is a nice product for the money. Been a big fan of vista, but have been using SW for the last month. Debatable which I like better / haven't used SW Sonoran and pro-mar 200 long enough to say its held up any better. Time / and destructive folks will soon tell! Now i just need to choose between the two brands for a larger 2000 sq ft rental unit coming up (interior and ext).
