Enhanced UV protection is not true
My paint faded in a few years and we were forced to paint it again. We were told it wouldn’t fade,it’s guaranteed and “it’s a coating”. Well, the company that did the job now says they never told us that but then said the employee no longer works there. I would not recommend this product or anything from this brand.
    Faded within five years
    I had the house painted in 2016 and the pigment faded in a few years and now it’s seven years later and it looks like crap. So bad that I am getting letters from the HOA forcing me to paint it again.
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This product was used to repaint a couple of walls on my back patio. The coverage was good and was very easy to apply a nice even coat. This is a high quality paint and I would recommend for any outdoor project.

        Another great paint from PPG
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This exterior paint goes on smoothly with great coverage. The paint has a great consistency and mixed up well. You probably only need one coat, but we still did two. We used both a roller and a brush, we were pleased with the application from both of them.

          PPG Permanizer
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The PPG Permanizer is a pretty good paint. Amazingly thick, so a little goes a long way. Only one coat along the door frame was needed. I like that its mildew resistant and has UV protection. You can paint in colder temperatures (35 degrees), which is important for those of us in colder weather states. Dries fast. Overall great paint that really spruces up something old. 
            PPG Permanizer Covers Great
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Once again, PPG Paint worked beautifully! Coverage was amazing. I was able to get the area covered within just a couple of hours. Went on smooth. One coat really was all that we needed, but we applied 2 just to be sure everything was even. Highly recommend.

              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This paint was pretty amazing to work with. I really liked how easily this went on the walls. The color is really nice and bright too. Was easy to mix and pour. The coverage was nice. I put two coats on and it covered everything up and nothing showed through at all.

                Smooth cover
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As always another great product from PPG. The paint comes in a very secure container which keeps the product from spilling or go bad. The label contains plenty of instructions for use and safety warnings. The product it’s very smooth to apply and thick enough cover with just one application. I was able to use my airless sprayer and do my exterior doors, giving me an even coat and a semi-gloss shine. The paint barely has any odor.

                  Great coverage
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really like PPG paints and have used variarions for many different products around the house. This paint has been great for redoing our outdoor wood furniture. The thing to note about thia paint is that it is pretty thick. I like the texture because it seems like it doesnt take as much paint to get good coverage. You really only need 1 coat. It dries relatively quickly and makes old things look new again. Easy way to freshen up some of your outdoor items!

                    Good paint!
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is really good paint to use for outside projects. It covers well and is easy to roll or brush on. The paint is easy to pour, goes on with ease and looks good. It doesn’t have a strong smell, but if using outside, a scent won’t really matter.
