I once read, in a magazine about paints...(since I was painting the outside of my house, for I hoped to be the last time), and it said that the more "additives" you have in a paint, the better it is in quality and performance...(like its going to get up and hot rod down the road, right?)..
Well, I did some searching, from Odd Lots, to Sears, to Sherwin Williams. All of them had basically the same ingredients! Sherwin Williams had a few "extra", (now, what that meant, I still dont know, because I am not a chemical expert, but, knew I needed the extras LOL!), so, I bought thiers at 25 bucks a can.
Now, I went the whole nine yards, scraping, and painting first with a primer and then the paint itself. (Supposed to last 25 years, and me with two pacemakers figured I would be dead by then, and not have to worry about painting again
Even painted with two coats and, I am dissapointed.
It did last a wee bit longer than cheaper brands, but, not the 25 years that they said it would... So, I shall paint again maybe next year, or the year after...
I guess the moral of the story is that you cant believe everything you read, even from a reputable magazine that you trust...
Just my two cents worth..
