Beautiful Finish!
This is wonderful quality paint! I’ve used them all and see no reason to pay two or three times more for a gallon of paint! The thickness is just right and behold- no drips or God forbid dreaded wrinkles! It took four coats but when you cover a deep lavender with yellow that’s just what it takes. It looks gorgeous. Why 4 stars instead of 5? Because shockingly the paint was orangier than it should have been because whoever mixed it at the factory (I had it shipped) did not match it correctly! THIS SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN BUT MAYBE IT WAS A FLUKE! Luckily I love the result even if is a bit brighter than I expected. The paint itself is fabulous!

    Glidden Exterior Spatter
    I've been using Glidden and PPG paints for year on various homes. Recently I bought the Purchased exterior premium and applied it to eaves with a 9" roller. While painting I felt like I was under a light shower - spatter was everywhere. The reason I always liked Glidden was that it did.not at all spatter. Maybe the manufacturer is trying to increase their profit margins by changing the chemical mix - Not a good idea at all!!!

      Good coverage, minimal coats
      I bought it to paint the trim on my house which was white. After one coat it looked great. I went ahead and used it on some nasty shutters and it coated again, mostly one coat coverage. It was a darker color so two needed done to give complete coverage but I'm very happy with the end result. Really freshened up the front of my house!

        Horrible paint
        Bought this to paint a newly installed steel door. Paint went on very bad. Left streaks when applied with a brush. When rolled on looked like spider web. Would leave no stars if that was an option.

            The best paint out of all the brands
            Have used this paint on hundreds of jobs. Best brand on the market. Covers extremely well. I have had no complaints. Also, The gripper primer is unsurpassed especially for jobs where a lot of scraping is involved.

              Great coverage
              I painted an exterior fiberglass composite door. Primed it first because I wasn't sure how well paint would stick to the fiberglass despite the manufacturer saying no primer needed. This paint went on great and had really good coverage with just first coat. Put two coats on with roller and brush, been about 3 months and it looks great.

                    I bought this product and applied it to my exterior wooden table . it went on real good coverage was excellent and it looked really nice., especially after 3 good coats. Unfortunately after only 3 months, I have to reapply because it didn't stand up well at all to the sun and it has faded noticeably.... Kind of dissapointed !!!

                          No pigment of my imagination
                          I repainted some of the interior of my house using several different colors of Glidden Premium paint. The Dove white covered great even over darker colors with a light coat and then a second coat. The charcoal gray went over a previously colored wall and made a great, one coat coverage, accent wall. The lighter shade of gray also provided even and excellent one coat coverage. Now it seems that beige, white, brown and grays all did the job but I bought three gallons of Burgandy and it was hands down the worst painting experience I've ever had. The paint went on the wall with brush or roller completely uneven. Streaky would be an understatement . It seems as if the pigment in the paint and the paint itself were fighting to separate. . I would have been more then happy to cut and roll three times if needed but after several attempts to get even coverage, the pain, in that pigment' was worse then anything I ever painted with before. No latex, enamel, acrylic, epoxy or lacquer ever presented as uneven a finish as this. I'm not certain any amount of coats would even out the color. So my advice is, if it's colors you want, avoid GLIDDEN.

                          Hi John, We're so glad to hear you love our white, brown and gray paint, however sorry that the burgundy color didn't work out too well for you. Different paints have different consistencies, so more than one coat may be needed to get the job done. Also be sure to stir your paint before and during your project for a more even and uniform look. We're here to help, so please call us at 1-800-GLIDDEN.
                            Love This Paint
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have a very large living room space. It was currently painted brownish color and with this paint I decided to go back to white. First thing that I wanted to say about this paint is that I have used other semi-gloss latex paints and this one did not have the usual lingering smell as the others. The wife and I made the comment almost at the same time. With having the brown paint, we did have to do 2 coats but I think it was only because we had the dial set wrong on our Wagner power roller. The new walls look AMAZING!

                                Shed is looking great! Loving the new color!
                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Due to the extreme weather - Heat and storms, we're running behind on our outside projects. We started with our little shed that was given to us! It was an old ugly brown and we chose a new Glidden Premium Candy Apple red paint! We are loving it and can't wait to start on the bigger garage/barn we need to repaint. On first opening the paint , it was a strange salmon color but I've painted enough to know that it goes on and dries much differently. At first the old brown was coming through the red paint. We had no idea what had been used on it previously. We did a sample board of the siding that will be used on the bigger project and it went on PERFECTLY!! So we gave the shed 3 coats of the Candy Apple red and we are very happy with it!! It has some depth and character to it! All of our neighbors have commented how well they like it now!! It sits up near the road, so it is very visible! We now have galvanized metal roofing to put on it and it is going to look so wonderful! I am so thrilled with my little shed! It is just so cute - would love to share a pic after the roof goes on!

Primer is included with the paint and saves so much time. I only used two coats on my walls. The color that I received was a good choice. There are so many colors to choose from. I would recommend this paint for your interior painting.

                                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Got this paint a few weeks ago for my garage overhead door. Rain showers every other day I couldn't get to it right away. Finally two days without rain. Temps in the upper 70's. Old door was lighter in color, faded, cracked and peeling paint. Scraped off peeling paint and primed with auto spray paint. Used my trusty 20+ year old paint brush to cut around the door frame and get all the grooves in the steel door. Then used a small low nap roller for the field. Paint went on real well and great coverage. I knew it needed a second coat. So let the first coat dry for about an hour. Then applied the second coat. It went on smoother and again great coverage. What I really like is the second coat went on lighter but dried darker. This allowed me to see where I may have missed areas to go over them. Love the look and color. Did not paint the frame for contrast. Used about 2/3 of a gallon of paint. Next project is to paint the garage entry door.

                                      Glidden Premium Exterior Paint in Tan
                                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I live in North Florida so I need a paint that will be easy to apply and will dry in a few hours because it rains most afternoons during the summer. Luckily we have 3 days of no rain so I decided to do my painting now. I choose the Tan color because we have to use desert colors on our homes in this subdivision and it looked just right to me kind of like a dark Sand color. I cleaned the exterior the day before and started early in the morning to apply the paint on the front. This paint is thick. The pictures shows are after one coat. The coverage is wonderful as it covered the uneven hardiboard exterior without any problems for me. Clean up was easy just soap and water.

                                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Our house was a bland 1970's off white. We wanted to make a statement so we chose a bold dark color for the exterior walls: Wild Truffle. I am extremely happy with the Glidden paint's excellent coverage. It has a nice thick consistency. We used rollers for the majority and brushes for cutting in the edges. We were able to get great coverage with one coat. A few areas needs a second coat. I think it is a vast improvement. When we tackle the interior walls I think we will be looking at Gladden to do that job too!

                                            Bought this paid to paint a primed garage door. The sheen is semigloss and color is white. I painted a design in the door and got some red paint in the white area. I tried to touch up the white and it would not coat after 6 separate attempts. The rest of the door is not brilliant white either. It mostly looks like primer. Possibly got a bad batch, but very dissatisfied with this paint.

                                              Poor hiding, poor adhesion to PVC trim
                                              I used two colors from this line for my front entry: Heron Gray Satin to match Andersen's "Sandtone" storm door for trim, and California Claret Semi-Gloss (gorgeous red) for the front door (brand new, pre-primed fiberglass door w/ PVC trim around the lite). I noticed when painting the trim (wood, with PVC brick-mould) that the paint didn't really want to "grab" on the PVC. The second coat covered. The Heron Gray color did a decent hiding job, requiring only 2 coats. The door was another story. The paint again did not like the PVC lite trim, and even had initial adhesion issues with the pre-primed fiberglass (I did lightly sand it and clean it). The biggest problem was hiding. I had to put down 5 coats before I got a decent finish that wasn't showing white through--and then had to do a 6th coat on some of the detail work. Adding in dry time, this was a beast of a project. And 2 days later, the paint is still fairly soft. I have no idea how long it will take to fully cure where I can remove my protection from the weatherstripping and be confident that opening the door won't tear the paint. Next time, I'll try something else. To be fair, the weather was hot, so I applied it in a shaded garage at 90F ambient. That is right at the top-end of the stated application temp range. I'm not really impressed with how the paint flows out, adheres, and hides. Perhaps I should have sprayed, or perhaps I should have done a couple layers of flat sheen first to enhance the hiding.
