Not resolved

I painted 2800 sq foot of home with Sherman Williams Emerald. Two coats, in 2 rooms, 3 were needed.

The previous colour is bleeding through in every room but the three coat room after 6 months. It cost me a fortune to do this home.

I really am at a loss at what to do at this point since I do not have the money to do another coat. To pay $6000 for a paint job and it be inferior is a crime.

Product or Service Mentioned: Sherwin Williams Paint.

If the color is bleeding through, then you need to prime first.


Bottom line: If you use Sherwin williams paint , your paying for the name, there is tons of products out there for half the cost that are in most cases a much better product. I have used their paint for 25 + years with my business at the recommendation of some of my clients and have been to *** and back with every imaginable problem you can think of.


It's not just the name people pay for. It's the 4000+ beautiful stores staffed with MBA's and marketing degrees (which doesn't mean they know *** about paint of course), and the multi-million dollar TV advertisements.

That's why they jack the prices way up and lower their quality (cheaper paint). This has been the way they've operated since the 80's.
