I agree. Us old guys are slow. What I was thinking was how would a paint clerk answer, if the question was about using something like Behr on those exterior soffits and eaves and maybe even interior soffits and eaves.

Another thing us old slow guys would probably not think of if we were shlepping paint instead of applying paint would be to figure out that our store was not even in the same time and weather zones and tell the painter dude more about the waterboune Sikkens product so as to save the earth and the little children from the horrors of VOC's and the dreaded neck cramps from sloshing paint on soffits. Those neck braces are so, not stylish.

Now, had you done some raw eaves or soffits here in the PCW and stated so, the overall agreement about the Sikkens product would have more weight attached. Being slow, us old guys could be thinking that the customer might be influenced by the ads and hype rather than solid information.

Can I Use Sherwin-Williams SuperPaint Exterior Paint on my Indoor Walls?

My husband and I recently got a great deal on 10 gallons of paint for the exterior of the house. We only need 5-6 gallons for that job and it's the same cream color we wanted for the interior. I wanted to know the pros and cons of using it inside - I know you're not SUPPOSED to but I'd like to know the reasons why because we're on very limited budget so it's very hard to toss a bunch of paint without a good reason. :)

Who told you you aren't "supposed" to. Makes no difference where you use it. You shouldn't use INTERIOR outside, or it'll fail, but EXTERIOR can go anywhere!
