Pittsburgh's Grand Distinction

sunnytopJuly 2, 2009

Is anyone familiar with Pittsburgh's Grand Distinction brand paint they make for Menards? I know Pittsburgh makes good paint because I've used it in the past. But, I am concerned about how much the quality will suffer of something they make for a home improvement store and sell for less.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

i've used it in 2 rooms - i like it okay. my only other paint experience is with behr premium plus and valspar (the top of the line one, forgot what it's called). i think out of all 3, i like pittsburg a bit better.

i have bought BM aura, SW duration (exterior) but haven't tried them yet so can't compare if the more expansive paint are better (the 3 mentioned above are comparable in prices).

my painting experience is also limited to 4 rooms, all in egg shell, all primed with zinssar 123 and one room is painting over wood paneling (behr).
