The same is true of Moore. All you morons babbling on about Behr vs.
Moore - there is no such thing as Benjamin Moore paint. There is Regal,
Muresco, Colorscapes, Eco Spec, Moorcraft, etc., but no Benjamin Moore.
Some is good, some is cheap. Same with Sherwin Williams or any other
company. They make Style Perfect, which is cheap, and they make SuperPaint,
which is not. Just check it out yourself - they even claim Style Perfect
doesn't cover well.
So everyone knock it off.
Bzzzzzztttttttttt wrong. Consumers reports is geared toward the average
homeowner, not the professional. Here's something taken directly from their
site which shows their reports _are_ supplemented by surveys taken directly
from subscribers of Consumers Reports.
"To supplement laboratory testing, the survey research department gathers
the experiences that hundreds of thousands of our subscribers have had with
products and services through an annual questionnaire. Those results are the
basis of our well-known auto Frequency-of-Repair index and other
Next time at least look into the subject before inserting foot in mouth.
You clearly don't know anything at all about Consumer Reports. The surveys
are to gather repair records and to help decide what to test in the future.
The surveys do not ask readers to judge the quality of paint, vacuum
cleaners or anything else except perhaps to ask whether you would buy the
same car again.

As others have said, the painter seems to have quoted you one product
and switched to another before painting. If he figured the quote using
Benny Moore, he should either use the Moore paint or give you a rebate.
I've had all sorts of pros tell me what kind of paint I should want,
they've told me what they would use on a job and they all get the same
answer from me; we're using Benny Moore paint. Once that arguement is
over, I've had every one of the pros tell me they prefer Benny Moore.
I've tried a lot of products recommended by CR and have yet to be
satisfied. I think their advice is actually pretty lousy, but maybe
that's just me.
