Pittsburgh Grand Distinction Interior House Paint Review
Pittsburgh Grand Distinction interior paint is by FAR the best value out there in its price range. For this review we purchased this product for three separate challenging interior painting jobs. In all circumstances the paint performed above expectations for its price range. In fact, this interior paint outperforms its competitors in much higher price ranges!
Areas Of Excellent Performance
- Color Coverage – Coverage is certainly important in an interior paint. After all, most interior painting is completed simply to change a color. Color coverage is top notch with this wall paint. If you get enough paint on the wall then you’ll have your desired color. Obviously more difficult colors may require a second coat. Some colors also cover better depending on the colorants used. We covered a red with a grayish white with one coat!
- Coverage of Sheen – This is the point that most miss. Although your “Paint + Primer” product may cover the color in one coat the sheen or shininess will not look uniform until after a second coat. With Pittsburgh Grand Distinction our interior painters found that the sheen covered evenly in one single coat and even over a rough textured plaster!
- Low VOC – Pittsburgh Paints and Stains hit a mark with this one. With all interior paint and primer in one products the largest challenge under 50/g VOC per liter is the flow of the paint onto the wall. Grand Distinction Interior beat our expectations for flow in a low VOC paint and primer in one.
- Expense – Of course this is a high performance paint, so you’ll pay more. But how much more? Are you getting VALUE? In comparing performance with Valspar Signature($34) and Glidden Duo($25), Grand Distinction falls at $28. While all bases are a little different in pricing these prices reflect white/pastel eggshell bases in our current location, Indianapolis Indiana.
Final Review Of Grand Distinction Interior Paint.
We have not tried the semi gloss as a trim paint but only the eggshell as a wall paint. We were more than surprised at the overall performance and value of the interior paint on all three jobs that we used this product on. Wheather being a professional interior painter or homeowner doing your own wall painting, this is the paint you should be flocking to go get. You will find it spreading easier than Valspar Signature and covering better. Glidden Duo is a few dollars less, however, you will not find the same coverage durability and hiding that both Valspar Signature and Pittsburgh Grand Distinction have. Glidden Duo will cover almost as well as both products. However Glidden Duo lacks in durability as those were compromised in able to make a cheaper formulation still cover decently. However, are you saving money if you have to go buy another gallon or two? The Best VALUE is with Grand Distinction over any other high performance interior paint on the market today.
