BM vs. Glidden
I'm a big BM Regal fan. For one thing, its smell/fumes have never bothered me, where others have. I asked a painter to bid on the ceiling, and when I told him I like BM he said that's too expensive. I assumed he would want to use SW, like most all the other painters I've encountered (because of the contractor price break) and he said even that is too expensive. He said he'd use Glidden ceiling paint. When I balked at this he said it being on a ceiling it's not that important, and that he could get a five-gallon can of it for something like $50. Yes, $50 for five gallons!!!
That compares with BM ceiling paint at about $35/GALLON (or $175/five-gallon).
There has got to be some big difference between these two paints for a price difference like that. I see Glidden is sold at Walmart and HD.
I said just give me your labor cost and we'll decide on which paint.
Should I let someone paint my ceiling with Glidden? I'm wanting it to match my crown moulding and other trim. Or a possible second choice, just be a basic "ceiling white." I feel like whatever makes Glidden cheaper will make it stick out like a sore thumb next to my BM Regal flat.
