Until my latest project I was a fanboy of BEHR Premium Plus Interior Paint. Really. I have used it on every project I have done in the past few years. Probably close to 200 gallons of the stuff. The biggest reason to use it was its thickness which translated into 1 coat coverage. Since I roll and brush as opposed to spraying, the body and coverage saves me labor and produced a superior finish.
Not anymore. The latest batch I used was thinner and did not provide the coverage I am used to, and made much more work. Like two coats on cutting and rolling. After covering the off white walls with PVA Primer before painting. I used to run a cut line and roll a room and be done. I was using the Ultra White in semi gloss and Flat. Both were thin in 1 gal and 5 gallon sizes.
BEHR paint was a thick paint that once you got used to it, allowed you to lay on a single coat. Using a 1/2” nap roller allowed me to roll a lot of paint without dripping or running. I had to down size to a 3/8” roller and still had drips. And needed two coats. Major pain in the ass when you budget your time on one coat and done.
I will be using Valspar from Lowes for a while. I recently used it on an exterior project both enamel and masonry paint, with great results.
