Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kat Best Experience Ever Thank you Frank!
A huge thank you to Frank in Paint for being so patience and helpful!! You are awesome!
Glidden has been the only paint to ever do on our house and being 2nd generation we weren't going to go with anything else.
Glidden coverage is terrific, cost is right on and the choices can't be beat!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by danipicasso ext flat is the worst product
after three coats of exterior flat (about 3 days apart) the last coat was still streaking on 3 exterior benches. After 4 days drying, I masked the contrasting joints with blue tape for painting another color. The masking tape was on for 4 hours and when I went to remove it, the three coats came off on the tape. Truly the worst product I have experienced in the last 30 years

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by disapointed worst paint in 40 years
Glidden used to be my favorite paint but this is the thinnest paint ever. I am doing white on white touch up and this won't begin to cover. This is thinner than wal mart color place cheap paint. Do not buy this or you will be painting everything 2-3 times. Got Valspar to replace it and WOW what a difference. I will no longer buy Glidden.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Paintingnut Runny and thin
This is a very thin product with not much pigment for coverage.save your money and get something better. Glidden says it is the same as wal mart color place and that is cheap paint.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MisterPainter Best Value on the market
As I,ve been painting for 40+ years I have used many brands of paint. This Glidden ext. satin is one of the best I have ever used, and that includes those super high priced paints. I covers very well (one coat in white base colors), it flows out very good in even very warm temperatures and clings to brush and roller well. I've just finished painting the back portions of my house which are the most sun and rained on areas and am extremely happy with this paint. After reading some of the other reviews I believe one must've used a Base 2 mixing base for white or didn't shake or stir it before using. This paint hides very well when properly applied. My experience with some dark or saturated bright colors is they wont hide well with any brand. (pigments are what hide and in the clear (deepest bases) earth based pigments (oxides) are critical for hide). Glidden hasn't changed this exterior formula in over 10 years and it performs just as it had when it had a #1 CR rating a few years back. There are other excellent paints out there also but you'll pay the price for a paint with only a little higher rating. I've talked to many fellow contractors who've used this paint and are very satisfied. Save some money and use this high quality paint. Remember some colors just wont hide well in any brand.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FLM1 Don't buy any other paint! This is the one!
I bought this paint based on my CR research. As the previous poster said "CR doesn't disappoint"!!!
I painted the exterior of my house several months ago and it looks great. The paint coverage was awesome and I particularly like the satin sheen. I've been compliments all around. I'm sold on Glidden paints!! And this year (2012) around Memorial day, HD was offering a $20.00 rebate on the 5 gal buckets which would be a net of $92! What a deal!! Don't buy any other exterior paint! This is the one! And CR just updated their paint reviews in the June 2012 issue and this paint continues to hold the "Best Buy" endorsement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bigdaddypopo Great paint for any project
I flip one or two homes every year and I always use Glidden paint for whatever project I am painting. It covers well and always looks great after drying. I have used both interior and exterior and have found they out perform all the other major brands. The Glidden Duo eggshell finish is great for interior walls, like the living room, bedrooms, and hallways. The Glidden Duo semi-gloss is great for the kitchens and bathrooms, The Gliddon premium works well as long as you use a primer first. The Gliddon exterior paint is great it covers well and holds up to extreme weather changes. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Beemus Difficult to work with
I bought this paint for paneled steel entry doors. I used a brush and found that it was very difficult to spread evenly without leaving brush and lap marks, no self leveling of the paint at all. It seemed to dry as I was applying it (I painted the doors indoors @ 70 degrees laid flat on sawhorses). After it completely dried, it looked more like flat paint rather than satin, not a hint of sheen at all. I wouldn't recommend this for doors or anything with any detail on it because it was just to hard to put the paint on evenly. The only thing I can say good about it is that it cleans up easily with soap and water.
