    This video just proved that the best paint wasn’t even on the same level as these inferior paints, let alone in this test.
    The BEST paint hands down is

    I have experience with diamond Vogel products and sherwin Williams products. So I was excited to hear that paramount was a good value! However it’s actually $40 per gallon normal price right now, only 4 months after the video posted. Just as an FYI.

      Great review and testing, I brag to friends about your channel. Another testing idea is cabinet paint. I've used the Valspar Cabinet paint for one project but would like to see other brands tested. Keep up the great work!

        @Project Farm Thanks for the reply. I may try the Sherwin Williams product next and will post back results.

      Great review. Was wondering if this should have included Kilz primer?

      Additionally, heads will roll if shoe scuffs, crayons, “and God forbid” MARKERS end up on my wall!

      Pretty sure if you look on the can the majority of paints are made by PPG. Thanks for another great vid!!!!

      Would you do a similar exterior paint competition for those of us who live in houses that require painting or staining every four to five years?

      Outstanding series sir.

      Zinsser primer and Sherwin Williams is the best combo out there. Benjamin Moore is good but Sherwin Williams has way better accessibility in my area. Almost as common as Starbucks stores.

      Pittsburgh Paramount is $36 at my Menards store, where are you seeing it at $21.97? I think you may have the wrong price shown and it really belongs in the “mid range” of the prices.

      Before I knew anything about paints (and I still don’t know much) I bought the cheapest paint I could at one of the box stores thinking it was a better value and I ended up applying four coats to get walls that still ended up with uneven coverage and they looked pretty shitty. I bought a gallon of some good stuff at about 4x the cost and it out performed 5 gallons of the cheap stuff and was way less work. I wish this video was around then. Coulda saved me hours of work and despair. I appreciate your channel

        One request, my handyman and I are HOOKED watching your channel. Love your technique, charts, etc. Could you add a one time donation option to your patreon site ? I think many of us would love to make a donation but not on a recurring basis.

        Why no testing of Benjamin Moore ? This is most preferred by professionals and I would love to see it compared to Sherwin Williams

        I used Emerald Exterior on my home in the tropics. Outstanding paint, but you definitely pay for it. I assume the price shown here for the Interior Emerald is after some promotion, because it retails for $75-$80 per gallon. The Behr looks very attractive if retail pricing alone is considered. Keep in mind that Behr also has promotions, and it can be purchased in large format pails, unlike SW Emerald which is only sold in Gallons.

        You should perform a follow up video using the same brands, but with a different sheen. Flat paint is best for covering imperfections, but higher sheens like satin and semigloss, offer better "scrubbability" and stain resistance.

          You get what you pay for. I've always used Behr or Sherwin Williams. It holds up great and goes on nicely. Now if I was painting a shop or rental house, that's a different story.

          This was awesome. Though probably a ton of effort consider testing exterior paints. Fading and discoloration are big concerns.

            Behr marque is meant to be ran as a colored paint, the paint gets thinned out when pigment is added

            Benjamin Moore is only paint i use, painting with sherwin Williams or any other brands feels like torture after you try Benjamin. also flat is good for ceiling only for walls you have to go to eggshell or at least low sheen

            The pigment is a key ingredient, it's called Titanium dioxide. The more you in the can the better the paint will cover. It will be listed on the side of the can. Valspar is now owned by Sherwin Williams
