Valspar - What the @$!#% ?
In 20 something years, I have "never" seen black spots (sheet rock screws) bleed through paint. Right through a skim coat of plaster, 2 coats of bullseye primer, and 2 coats of valspar semigloss finish. NUFF SAID ?
Valspar - One coat guarantee should say 4!
I recently used Valspar reserve and also their primer. 4 coats later and it still needs touch ups. A one day job turned into 3. Lowes gave us more paint for free to finish the project but Valspar did nothing else for the inconvenience or to make up for their false advertising.
Valspar Duramax Paint is garbage!
I purchased Valspar Duramax Paint to paint the exterior of my home. I was promised a lifetime guarantee against fading, chalking and mildew against the Florida climate. Within 2 years, paint is fading, chalking and covered with mildew. Valspar told me in email that they would replace paint, but later on went back on their promise.

Recently, I bought the color 'mad about you', a bright, deep blue-ish red, from Ace Hardare. I tell the kid helping me that I was painting over light yellow. He tells me that I'll only need one coat, at best one gallon...I buy two just in case, because I don't believe...Read more
I just bought the Valspar Reserve 1 coat paint/Primer system and it sucks! I have coated my walls twice now and we still have a few spots where the old light (flat gray) is still showing though. This paint is horrible. We just did the other side of the room with...Read more
I have used Valspar paint since Lowe's came to Shawnee, Oklahoma, many years ago. Last week, I bought two gallons of their paint and primer to paint my living room. It is the consistency of skim milk. There is more paint on me and the floor than on the wall. It's not...Read more
