Years ago Glidden Endurance Exterior paint was rated number by a consumer group and by some contractors on the net. I tried to find it around my area but could not. I never dreamed it would be sold at Walmart. I am a professional painting contractor and would rate the white satin High Endurance Plus the best hiding exterior satin I ever used. There are other brands that hide pretty much as well but they cost over $50.00 and do not brush out as well. I have been waiting 4 or 5 years to try this paint. I can't believe a dept. store has this high quality paint. Believe me I won't laugh anymore when someone tells me they got their paint at Walmart.
I recently had a client demand to use this paint against my advice and it performed like most Glidden paints do - very poorly. I generally recommend Behr Ultra (which is priced in this range) which can almost cover any thing in one coat. With the Glidden the first coat barely stuck to the walls and looked more like painting with a primer and not a paint. The second coat covered better but again failed to cover properly. This paint took three heavy coats and nearly two gallons for a 12 x 10 bedroom (normal is about a gallon). I've run into Glidden before in the SpeedWall brand which is essentially buying a 5 gallon bucket of water. This 'best' brand is just about as poor. The attached photo shows the one and two coat coverage of this paint.
Do yourself a favor, purchase a higher quality paint than this unless you want to overspend and over work yourself.
My wife and are seasoned painters we have our system down and can cover a room in no time. We normally used the Behr Ultra from Home Depot that has primer. This paint is so unbelievably bad that we have spent 4x the time and 2x the cost. I had all the same problems as the other reviewers. This is horrible, run.....
I BOUGHT THIS THINKING IT WAS A PREMIUM PAINT PRODUCT BUT EVEN THOUGH IT'S SUPPOSED TO HAVE A PRIMER IN THE PAINT. I USED IT TO PAINT THE OUTSIDE OF MY HOUSE,CHANGING COLORS FROM AN ALMOND TO WHITE AND MAYBE THAT WAS THE PROBLEM,..I DON'T KNOW..BUT I'VE HAD TO USE 2 COATS OF PAINT AND IN SOME AREAS 3 WHICH WAS VERY EXPENSIVE. I WAS REALLY DISSAPOINTED IN THE NAME "GLIDDEN". THE SATIN FINISH WAS THE ONLY THING THAT LOOKED NICE
Living room, dining room and hall+ ceiling painted with this paint. This was preceded by the ext. siding and trim being done with SW Woodscapes Ext Stain. Works great , looks great.
Loved this product! I've tried other brands but this one seemed to go on so well. I only had to do one coat and nooooooo streaks like some other paints. Now that it has sat for a few days it wipes down my grand kids dirty fingerprints really good!
We are UPCYCLE OUTDOOR LIVING we recycle wood for furniture outdoors. Your product goes on with one coat and touch up is easy.This product is less cost to Behr and lasts just as well.
In October 2013, I painted my aluminum gutters, facia, and trim with Glidden High Endurance Plus – Satin - white; 2 coats - no primer. I like this paint very much - no drip and good coverage. I particularly appreciate the adherence to the gutters. It's getting close to 2 years and the paint job remains great.
I had read positive reviews about Behr paint, but the exterior paint I bought was too thick and dried too quickly. I decided to use Glidden and was well satisfied with the paint. It went on easily, covered well, and dried quickly--but not too quickly.
I had a weekend project of spray painting my wicker furniture. It was the first time using a paint sprayer and the Glidden Paint Plus Primer went on flawlessly. Instead of having to do 2 coats I only had to do one. The primer being in the paint was the reason I bought it. The paint did not clog up in the sprayer and the end result was fantastic!!!! I would recommend this paint highly and would use again on any project I have whether indoor or outdoor. For the cost and the results this is a great product.
I bought dapper tan. Went on smooth . Easy to paint with. Great color and a great price !
Our non-profit was preparing a volunteer day to paint the outside. We purchased Glidden Exterior Paint and sanded the aluminum siding down. When we FINALLY got to paint, I couldn't believe my eyes when this paint didn't even cover the most minor blemish! I originally thought they were joking!!!
Needless to say, we wasted valuable volunteer time and now I will be purchasing ANOTHER primer and painting myself.
DO NOT PURCHASE, IF YOU ACTUALLY WANT THE SURFACE COVERED!!!
I have wasted my time thinking 4 coats would cover not on your life, ,looks worse than white wash...now I need to spend more money and hope I can get better results
