Sherwin Williams

Sherwin Williams is the largest paint company in the world and is the name behind nearly countless paint brands (many you would never have any idea about). 

They offer top quality products for homeowner, contractors, and commercial properties. 

One of my personal favorite things about Sherwin Williams is that they have most highly educated store managers, sales reps and even store employees in the industry. If you have a painting issue, they’ll help you solve it. 

Sherwin Williams paints are expensive, but they are known for having lots of sales and special pricing throughout the year. 

Benjamin Moore

Benjamin Moore is one of the most popular paint brands in the world. They have carved out a reputation of quality products and beautiful colors. 

Personally, I love their Advance paint, Stix, and Cabinet Coat. 

They’ve also got wonderful exterior and interior paints as well as a beautiful collection of colors to choose from. 

One down side to Benjamin Moore is that they are quite expensive. 

Behr Paint (Home Depot)

Behr is one of my personal favorite paint brands. They have great pricing with no gimmicks, offer great products, and have a great warranty that they actually stand behind. 

I often use Behr Premium Plus, Ultra, Deck Stain, and even their cabinet finishes. 

Below are a few posts and videos on different Behr products I’ve had the change to review (more coming soon!). 

Kilz, Rustoleum, & Zinsser

Kilz, Rustoleum, and Zinsser are all known for their specialty paints such as primers, countertop paints, and spray paints. Here, you’ll find my product reviews and recommendations on these brands.
