More paint please!

That is what our house painter had to tell us today. You see, we did not take his advice about where to buy the paint and not all paints are created equal. His recommendation was Home Depot (Behr Paint) which is guaranteed to cover with one coat. The stuff we bought was not covering with two coats and was not going to be enough. So, off we went to get another five gallons of paint. What's another $200 to spend? It is a nice yellow shade.

I remember mom going through that when she painted her house @JamesHxstatic she started out with a cheaper brand and ended up buying a more expensive brand that worked much better, I have no idea what those brands were but I recall her telling us that even though the better brand was more expensive it still didn't cost as much all things considered ..... her house was green and she wanted it white.

I learned my lesson years ago with regards to paint quality. I used to work in a young single homeless project (16-18 year olds) and there were 14 flats to paint and a set budget. I got the cheapest paint as I thought paint is paint...how wrong was I Sometimes you do get what you pay for and paint is one of those things it is advisable not to skimp on as it costs you more in the long term.
