Valspar - Didn't cover in one coat even though it said it does
by MuteGrasshopper #1586987
Last month I painted my laundry room with your "one coat guarantee" paint and it took 2 coats to cover a very light tan color. What should have taken me 2 gallons of paint (at $36.00+ a gallon) took me 4 gallons and a lot longer to complete the job.

3 weeks ago same thing with me. Received notification 3 days prior to not accepting . The Lowe’s center had everything and sent an unintelligible response about proof of purchase needed. Lowe’s rebates are a scam . I will no longer be a customer and the many many $$$ I...
Benjamin Moore - Failure of product durability and lasting sucess
by PissedConsumer1586442 #15864421.0
Stain my home with gray solid Arborcoat Solid latex stain and in a year it lifted itself along with the previous stain off in large areas, many cases whole white cedar shingles. The last photo was after I scraped it off and entire area. Back to bare wood but took a long time. Now I’m looking at doing the ENTIRE HOME! Will take me weeks!
Valspar - Unuseable
by ExaltedCod839 #15595821.0
This is absolutely the worst paint i have ever purchaed. We primed and then sprayed this paint from an airless sprayer onto a set we had built and it remained tacky all the way through a week long truck ride from Virginia to California.
We were forced to hire a painter on short notice at considerable cost to sand this product off and repaint the entire thing.
Utterly unnacceptable. Will not be purchasing from Valspar again, full stop.
Benjamin Moore - Arborcoat siding failure!
by UncomfortableShark502 #15853191.0
Three years ago I stained my home with white cedar shingled siding with solid Arborcoat. I applied two coats and a year later whole shingles were peeling off in pieces 5”x5”. I complained to the vendor, The Color house in Wakefield, RI. They told me the Benjamin Moore Representative would contact me and come look at my home. He did neither so I called him. He simply stated that my preparation was wrong.
He didn’t even come look. Paint guarantees are useless. Too hot, too cold, poor preparation, too humid, moisture from my home bleeding through. What am I supposed to do now! I have to scrape this crap off my house for weeks then stain again! Class action suit yes! My dad and I used Benjamin Moore for 60 years!

I purchased some paint from my local Benjamin Moore store near me on 06/06/19 and scheduled an appointment with my painter who is a licensed painter of 15 years. The painter put 2 coats of paint on the walls and it did nothing. It looked like primer instead of paint. In...

This paint is utter *** It gloops up as soon and you try to back brush. If you were able to water this paint down it might solve this issue, but Valspar cleverly made their product so you can't. I never recommend this crap to any of my customers. Only reason I'm using...
Behr - Years of disappointment
by AcousticDove729 #15567491.1
Used bear premium plus stain and paints. Bought all the recommended products for prep.
Cost was way to high. But did it anyway. It just doesn’t last.15 year stain on a deck. Doesn’t last 1 full year in Michigan.
Used bear paints for years. Always felt coverage sucked. But used it because we have a Home Depot close. Decided to drive the extra 30 miles for this recent project.
Switched to wherein Williams. Will never use bear again. Also used Pittsburg for part of the project and was very happy with it as well.
Better and more coverage for your money. Actually less cost.
