PPG is generally a good brand of paint.

As a professional, you'll find that you will be much better off if you decide to work with one or two brands of quality paints and a few products within those brands rather than having the customer dictate what you'll be using. You'll have a much better idea of the type of performance you can expect which will allow you to give more accurate bids and, correspondingly, achieve higher profits.

The only time I use the customer's paint is if it's a rescue job where they've started and need someone to bail them out. And I rarely do any of those any more - they are too much of a PITA.

With PPG, that is no longer true; both Evolution and Timeless are true, self priming paints. The world of paint is really advancing! Most "Paint & Primer" paints are still a lie! PPG is moving that needle.
The question is, when will we know that needle has arrived? Can’t really take the paint company’s word for it and in order to determine first hand that it has become a true primer-less product would take us a long time of checking the finished jobs to evaluate how they are performing and holding up over time.
