Pittsburgh exterior paint Reviews
Every brand of paint has upper end lines and lower end (contractor grade) lines. I have no personal experience with Pittsburgh Paints, so I'm hoping one of the pro painters will chime in...however, there was a recent thread on the decorating forum in which Funcolors recommended the Pittsburgh Paint "Manor Hall" line. Speedhide sounds to me like a contractor line, but in the product line up, it appears that it may be middle-of-the-road?
Forget the Speed hide and go with the Manor Hall
That your painter chooses to use their lower tier (4th from best, second to worst) product on exterior is a red flag. 80+% of your cost is labor - his choice and yours will mean you need to pay someone else to do it again twice as fast compared to using Manor Hall Timeless (their best). Some painters will resort to using lower quality products only if they have been beaten down on price - others will refuse and walk away from the job before they settle for anything less. You need to decide which applies in your case.
Thank you so very much, christophern and paintguy. After looking at the Pittsburgh Paint Website, I thought the Speedhide was a very low end paint. I will not be having that line put on my house.
Contacted the contractor and he said that he could use any paint.
Do you think Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, or Pittsburg paint is the better paint.
Same is true for all those other brands too. Each company has several lines and therefore quality grades. Ask the painter for some guidance and don't restrict yourself too much. If the painter won't help you decide, find another painter.
