Pittsburgh Paints any good?

Annie DeighnaughJune 20, 2013

I usually use Ben Moore paints, but I found the perfect color for my room, after much search, and it's a Pittsburgh paint color. I want to get an exact match. Should I go with PPG? Or should I risk a near match at the Ben Moore place due to paint quality?

If it is an actual PPG store and not some mega mart , then you will be fine with their Manor Hall . Get the best they have.

Yeah, I just recently learned that PPG product is at Menard's or Hirschfield's - maybe both. But it's not the same stuff you get from a pro PPG store.

On advice of this forum I tried PPG Manor Hall in my kitchen recently. I did not do the painting myself, but I am very pleased with the results as was the painter. The crew had used PPG before, but not the Manor Hall line recommended here.

This is Montego Bay (not as green IRL) and the powder room is the next lightest on that card. These are new walls, PPG primer and 2 top coats. Trim is not PPG and it shows. Ceiling is the lightest color on the same card.
