Thumbs up What's Your GO-TO Interior AND Exterior Paint for 2018? (Ex. SuperPaint- Exteriors)

We are a relatively new painting company in the midwest and are expanding rapidly (operating in 2 states, WI & IL).

I am looking for your advice to figure out which interior and exterior paint to use for our projects going forward in 2018-19 and would love some feedback from the Pros here.

Currently we have a Sherwin Account and I use:
-Exteriors: Sherwin SuperPaint

-Interiors: Sherwin SuperPaint or Behr Premium plus (Hdepot). Proclassic for trim.

-Exterior Stain Semi-trans: Defy Extreme (anything other than oil-based which is a real pain in my @$$)

-Deck Stain Solid: ? (Honestly, just do whatever they used before) or sherwin
Porch & Floor Enamel

-Deck Stain Transparent: Dont do many of these but curious on suggestions


I am open to every and all suggestions & preferences (the only wrong answer is no answer).

Excited to hear what paint/stain you guys loved and hated this past 2018 season!

so you are expanding your business by doing the same thing and using the exact same products every already existing painter in that market uses. Brilliant. Why not just use Walmart?

Thumbs up

Our interior painters in Chicago always try to upgrade our interior paint product to Sherwin Williams Emerald.

Emerald might be a little pricier but literally covers surface areas in 1 coat about 80% of the time and typically we just need to touch up a few thin spots here and there (outside of crazy paint color changes). Overall a great interior house paint that looks amazing with before and after photos.
