Growing up, I used to help my father, who was a custom painter for awhile. I picked up a lot of tricks along the way. Dad was always telling me, "You get what you pay for". He might have grabbed that line from my grandfather, but it was really true, a lot of the time. Dad had certain lines of paint he used on the job, regularly.
Pittsburgh's, "Manor Hall" line, has to be one of the best paints on the market today. Their eggshell finish, is the most durable eggshell finish ever made by anyone. It is very scrubbable.
Often consumers will want an eggshell finish in their kitchen area. It shines less than a semi-gloss. The problem is, most eggshells will not stand up in a kitchen setting, with all of grease and smoke, etc.
Manor Hall's eggshell finish is great to use, when a semi-gloss is not desired. The sheen is much lower with an eggshell, yet Manor Hall stands up for years, to abuse, without backing down.
The coverage is about 350, to 400 square feet per gallon. It costs more, yet the coverage and spread factor, more than makes up the cost difference, compared to other brands of cheaper paint.
The next time you need a good paint, try out Pittsburgh's line of coatings. They really are worth it.
Manor Hall, does not spatter and is very rich in all the colors you could ever want. A quick note: Tell them you are a contractor, they will usually give you a few bucks off the retail price, or tell them, "Dade sent me." This works every time.
