Selecting the best paint for your home’s interior and exterior walls is critical in enhancing the beauty and value of the property. Many companies manufacture paint products of different qualities— ranging from average to premium paints. What you need is a manufacturer that provides high quality paints with a thickness of at least 4 mils.
Below is my expert opinion on various paint brands. Based on my experience, the two best paint companies right now are Dunn Edwards and Sherwin Williams. Their paint is thick (and thus durable), has good hide (covers well), and has a warranty. Both manufacturers also have knowledgeable staff when it comes to paint tech related questions, and are fantastic at matching color from a paint chip or even another manufacturer’s color.
Dunn Edwards Paints
Dunn Edwards ranks among the top paint producers in the US. Since 1925, the company has been manufacturing different types of high-quality paints. Its collection comprises premium interior and exterior paints and primers. Dunn Edwards also offers primer shields and industrial-level paints to satisfy San Diego consumers’ painting needs.
The Sherwin Williams paint company was founded in 1866 and has been rolling out a wide range of interior and exterior paints, stains, and primers for various painting jobs, ranging from DIY and commercial projects. There are also Sherwin Williams paints for the architectural integrity of newly designed houses and contractor jobs.
Another bigwig in the paint-manufacturing industry, Benjamin Moore, delivers premium paints and coatings for your property. Established in 1883, the company offers stand-alone, high-performance products that combine in-house resins and BM’s proprietary Gennex colorants. Their paints also feature authentic colors that give your walls note-worthy beauty that lasts for years.
Albeit a relatively newer paint company, BEHR is another leading paint manufacturer in America. Opened in 1947, the company produces top-tier primers, stains, decorative finishes, and surface preparation products. Among the things that distinguish BEHR are their consistency in quality and determination to meet the varied needs of their clients.
