so it comes to painting the inside of

your home there are a lot of things to

consider in prices definitely a factor

where today we're gonna be testing 11

different types of paint some of them

costing four times more than the least

expensive paint and we're going to see

if price really makes a difference in

performance so let's get the testing

underway and see which brand is the best

all 11 paints that we'll be testing our

flat interior latex paints we'll see

which product does the best at painting

over stains will also see which is best

for painting wood paneling we're also

gonna see just how good these paints are

at stain resistance and cleanability and

the first test will be seeing which

paint has the best one coat coverage

we'll see which paint can do the best

job painting over these dark green

stripes to make a solid flat light

finish the least expensive paint we'll

be testing is this Valspar Pro Express

blocking technology advanced washability

and stain resistant my original tip was

to test flat white paint and

unfortunately I grabbed the wrong type

of paint with Nautica and I just decided

to try to roll with it to see how it

would work and it's definitely not going

to work for the purposes of this video

some of throwing all the testing results

testing is the sharon williams emerald

Beauty wash ability and application

ready to give these paints a couple

hours to cure and when we come back and

take a closer look at each one of them

it's been 24 hours since I applied these

paints so let's take a closer look at

each one of them Valspar Pro is the

least expensive paint and you can see a

lot of the dark color paint underneath

it did not do a very good job with a one

coat coverage the Walmart brand color

plates actually did quite a bit better

than Valspar Pro as you can see it did

have quite a few areas where it didn't

quite provide a good one coat coverage

but when you consider the price the

paint it actually did fairly well good

and premium actually did quite well for

a budget paint when you consider the

difference between Glidden premium and

counter plays you can see there's a lot

better coverage

pittsburg paint is a little bit more

expensive than Glidden premium and it

also seems to have done a little bit

better job you can still see a little

bit of a shadow underneath the paint but

it's not quite as bad as a Glidden

premium that's why did a respectable job

it doesn't seem to have done nearly as

well as Pittsburgh at covering up the

dark paint PPG time most definitely did

a better job than everything to the left

with that said there's still a little

bit of shadowing and the coverage isn't

quite as good as some of the brands were

about to look at Valspar signature

definitely had slightly better coverage

than PPG timeless and there's a little

bit less shadowing the HGTV home did not

seem to do quite as well as the Valspar

signature

coverage and you can see a little bit

more shadowing with pain the performance

between the Behr marquee and the Valspar

signature I would call it a tie

both of these paints did extremely well

the only thing I don't like about the

Behr marquee is it reminded me of Lucas

heavy-duty oil stabilizer this stuff is

extremely sticky and thick and it goes

on very heavy however it does provide an

incredible job as far as one coat

coverage this emerald paint really

surprised me at just how good it is what

surprised me the most is this paint

doesn't have a very high viscosity

compared to Bayer marquee but if you

look at the surface it seems to have

done a better job with one coat coverage

coming at first is emerald Valspar

signature and Behr marquee tied for

second PPG timeless forth and HGTV fifth

well it's not good practice to apply

paint to wood paneling that has not been

primed we're going to do so to test the

ability of these paints to deliver one

coat coverage while also preventing

yellow bleed through from the wood

paneling oftentimes the stains used in

this wood paneling will bleed through

the paint and leave the paint with a

very yellow appearance looking to see

how well these products did as far as

one coat coverage and we're also looking

for yellowing just like we saw before

Valspar Pro didn't seem to do a very

good job as far as one coat coverage

however there's not too much yellowing

compared to some of the other brands

color play seems to have done quite a

bit better than Valspar Pro as far as

the one coat coverage however there is a

little bit of yellowing that's taking

place color place and Glidden are very

evenly matched they both seem to be

about the same there does seem to be a

little bit more yellowing with color

place than ER does with the Glidden

Pittsburg definitely did a better job

with one coat coverage than Glidden

however there does appear to be more of

a yellow appearance to it than there

does with the Glidden for win code

coverage Pittsburgh scenes may be

slightly better than Dutch boy they both

did pretty good job but there's

definitely a little bit more yellowing

with Dutch boy than there is with

Pittsburgh PPG timeless did a great job

as far as one coat coverage but that

does seem to be quite a bit of yellowing

to this would bounce parks signature

seams have done a better job at one coat

coverage than PPG timeless and also

there just isn't that much yellow tint

to it Shirley Williams didn't do quite

as good as Valspar signature as far as

one coat coverage and there's a little

bit more of a yellow tint to the paint

Behr marquee did a great job as far as

one coat coverage as well

there is a little bit more yellowing

though than there is with the Valspar

signature

so I'd say Valspar signature seems

slightly better than the Behr marquee

emerald definitely did the best of all

the paints we've tested as far as one

coat coverage and there's definitely

less yellowing than any of the other

brands

once again emerald came in first Valspar

signature second Behr marquee third PPG

timeless fourth an HGTV fifth most of

these paints claim that they are

excellent at staying coverage we'll see

how well these products do at covering

up crayon stains let's see how well

these paints perform covering up a

permanent marker stain if you have kids

a HUD's are you gonna end up with a

little bit of ketchup and mustard on the

walls let's see how these paints do at

covering up a grease stain it's been

about five minutes since I applied these

stains let's see if we can get them off

we allow this wall to dry out we'll come

back to this later in the video the

stain from the crayon shouldn't be too

challenging for these paints but the

permanent marker is definitely going to

put these paints to the test a permanent

marker and the crayon stains proved to

be a very challenging task for the

Valspar Pro it's pretty easy to see the

crayon stains as well as a permanent

marker from perfect but still Conner

place did a lot better job than Valspar

Pro at covering up the permanent marker

kind of place definitely a better job at

covering up the permanent marker than

glidden premium kind of place actually

did better than Pittsburgh at covering

up this permanent markers stain however

Pittsburgh definitely did better than

Glidden premium and fast bar Pro it's

very close between Pittsburgh and Dutch

boy but looks like Dutch boy may have

edged out Pittsburgh by a little bit on

this permanent marker stain however

color play seems to have done better

than both of these two brands PPG

timeless and the other premium paints

definitely outperformed all of the less

expensive paints with that said PPG

timeless did a great job of covering up

the permanent marker stain was still

visible it actually seems better than

color place and the rest of the less

expensive brands PPG timeless actually

looks a little bit better than Valspar

signature but again Valspar signature

did a pretty good job it's very close

between Valspar signature and show winds

but I think Valspar signature edged to

outshine Williams PPG timeless Valspar

signature and shin williams all seem to

have done slightly better than Behr

marquee at covering up this permanent

marker stain emerald definitely seems to

have won this showdown once again this

is a very good job of coming up this

permanent marker stain while there's

still a shadow there it definitely beat

all the other brands emerald came in

first

PPG timeless second Valspar signature

third HGTV fourth & Behr marquee fifth

the test for stain and brazing

resistance will apply each paint to a

properly primed piece of drywall

allow it to cure for several days and

we'll do some testing with it later in

the video we'll see just how scuff

resistant each of these paint brands are

I'm attached a shoe to this PVC pipe and

there's five pounds of way to test I'm

gonna drag to heal this shoe across each

one of the paints and we'll see how they

perform

[Music]

next up we'll test crayon permanent

marker have a little bit of mustard have

a towel wrapped around a five-pound

weight and the weight is connected to

this PVC pipe I'll be running this towel

across the shoe scuff to see how much of

it comes up off the paint and see how

much staining was left behind

[Music]

now Smart Pro seams have done slightly

better than Qatar place on the shoe

scuff test gluta and premium definitely

did better than color place but

Pittsburgh did a really good job in this

test in fact I would say this is one of

the top brands we've tested as far as

resisting shoe scuff that sport also did

very well but not quite as good as

Pittsburgh PPG time was actually did

fairly well but not quite as good as

Pittsburgh and I was really surprised

that Valspar signature didn't do a

little bit better in this test

definitely PPG timeless is better than

Valspar signature hgtv did about the

same as Valspar signature quite a bit of

scuffing look at Behr marquee very good

job in fact Behr marquee took the top

position as far as the shoe scuff

challenge emerald I would say is

probably second Behr marquee came in

first

emerald second Pittsburgh third PPG

timeless forth and Valspar signature v

apply an all-purpose cleaner each one of

the paint strips and then I'll use five

pounds on top of this towel to apply

very light pressure to see just how

easily these stains come out at first

glance the Valspar pro looks really good

but upon a closer look paint actually

washed away not just a marker stain

unfortunately color place did not do

very good quite a bit of mustard stain

left the marker did not go anywhere

still quite a bit of crayon stain and

the scuff Glidden premium definitely did

but it in color place as you could see a

little bit less mustard stain some of

the marker was started to come off

there's still quite a bit of crayon

staining and a little bit of scuff left

Pittsburgh did remarkably well most of

the mustard stain is gone and the scuff

mark is gone as well obviously quite a

bit of crayon left as well as permanent

marker that's why did a pretty good job

as well there is a little bit more

mustard staining compared to Pittsburgh

but the amount of crayon seems to be

fairly close maybe a little bit less

with Dutch boy and of course the

scuffing has been removed from PPG time

us all with the right all the paint's

seem to do a pretty good job

PPG timeless didn't do quite as well as

Valspar signature as far as the removal

of the crayon stain also the amount of

mustard staining seems to be about the

same between the two brands HEV v has a

little bit more mustard staining than

Valspar signature and the PPG timeless

bear mark he did a terrific job there

isn't any more scuffing and

most of the purple is gone even some of

the permanent marker stains been removed

there's still a little bit of mustard

staining but overall a very good job

sherwin-williams emerald seems to have

done the best most that purple is gone

no more scuffing the permanent marker

actually started to come off and there

just isn't that much mustard stain left

emeraude came in first Behr marquee

second Valspar signature third PPG

timeless fourth an HGTV fifth taking

into account the average score for all

five tests emerald won by quite a large

margin with Behr barely edging out

Valspar signature while HGTV did beat

out Pittsburgh Pittsburgh is also much

less per gallon than HDTV and performed

nearly as well

Pittsburgh also proved to be a better

paint than Dutch boy forever if you're

loaded with cash you got to go with the

sherwin-williams

emerald it is a really good paint I'm

really surprised at just how well it did

now if you're willing to pay a little

bit less than that and still looking for

a really high quality paint I highly

recommend both the bear as well as the

Valspar signature those are both really

really good paints now if you're looking

for something about half the price a

very good value paint and a pretty good

performer is the pittsburgh paint hey
