Valspar Duramax Exterior Paint Complaint - The Paint Just Does Not Do What It Says!

Review by moparfan638 on 2011-07-15
I just painted my house with Valspar Duramax paint. What should have taken 5 gallons, ended up being 12 gallons! This product is highly misrepresented. The customer service was no help at all.

So buyer beware.

painting porous surfaces depends on many factors. mostly how old the surface is, and what type of paint you are covering.

was a primer used?

About a year ago now I bought this paint, this Duramax. It went on like crap, dripped like crazy, required 4 coats to cover red with a darker red and each time I painted it on it seem to move the bottom coat of paint around. My daughter said take it back, but really after spending hours painting all the exterior doors the only fix would be to paint them again. I could get my money back but not my time. I decided to live with it and start over again next year. Well it's next year and now I have discovered that it is very easy to remove. All you need is water. Gives new meaning to exterior grade.
