Valspar - 3 coats and counting
I currently have applied three coats of a light Valspar paint and Primer on top of a grey tinted primer. It looks like I’ve done one coat. I’m so disappointed. Should have just bought the cheapest paint on the market.

Resolved: 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.

I have put 3 coats of valspar signature island orange and it still doesn't come close to covering up the patches. It states that since it is primer and paint that it will be ok to use as a primer if using another coat. Ha! What a load of ***. I sanded some spots...Read more
