Applied 4-coats - 1-full gallon - of Valspar's perfect white semi-gloss paint over a primed 8x10 kitchen wall using a Wooster pro 3/8 shed-resistant woven smooth finish roller head over a four day period. First coat looked like crap after drying - absolutely no uniformity - so I lightly sanded the entire wall and applied coat #2... Which also looked like crap after drying. And so on, and so on!
After a final re-sanding and 4-days of wasted time - not to mention my out of pocket expense for said crappy valspar paint - I then applied one coat of Behr's ultra scuff defense using same equipment and the wall now looks like I would have expected it to have looked after a single coat of valspar's so-called 'perfect white"... Never again. BTW the way, for your information, as an investor and broker in residential real estate, I've personally painted well over 200 properties over the past sixty years. I know how to prepare and paint a wall... Period! I now also know that I will never consider valspar's product line again, as well as, spread the word.
We decided to try Valspar after seeing an ad for it. Bought it at Lowe's and painted the bathroom in what was supposed to be one coat. One coat does not cover. The smell is horrible. It has been 7 days and even with the exhaust fan on and the door closed, the smell is still there and lingers into the other room if the fan is turned off. We purchased a gallon thinking we could do 2 of our bathrooms but not an option since there is not enough left, Thank God! We bought Benjamin Moore to do our son's room which is much bigger than the bathroom and it only used 3/4 of a gallon. One coat went on smooth unlike the Valspar. The fumes were nothing like Valspar and was gone in 2 days. So glad I did the guest bath first because the fumes would not be bearable in the morning in our master bathroom. I just hope the smell goes away soon. Do not buy this paint.

I have been a painter for over 40 years, and have used several brands. Recently purchased Valspar at Lowe's. Big mistake- Inferior product at best. Bought 1 gallon semi gloss @ 40 + dollars to paint a bathroom --2 walls @ 8x8. 4 coats and still not covering dark paint that was on the wall!! Gliddon or Sherwin Williams from now on! Never never never Valspar again!!!
I bought Valspar premium v700 interior from B&Q. The paint dries to a tacky finish, has already started to flake after 12 hours, and chips easily. The paint 100% is not wipeable. I have tried with a damp cloth and the paint comes straight off. I have good experience of surface preparation and painting; I've painted many different household surfaces/materials successfully with various other brands of paint. This is by far the worst brand of paint I have ever used.
I think that Valspar is one of my number one paint companies in the world. I like it because I don't have to put a lot of primer on my wall for me to get a great painting job. I think that it is really important and it covers a lot of spots that some other Brands won't cover.
Overall a good covering paint that does the same coverage as more expensive brands. Many coats are not needed to effectively cover....and most of the time one coat nails it. I always try to find this brand 1st!
The paint covers well. The colors are endless. The price isn’t that bad and check the mismatched paint, a real deal. If you're not satisfied then it’s refundable. It comes flat, semi satin glossy, eggshell, what could be better and it’s sold at all Lowe's.
Great color choices and coverage. Staff at Lowe's is very knowledgeable about brand, and can help you with choosing finish. You are able to mix a variety of colors to get the perfect color you are looking for. Recommend this brand for all your painting needs.
I've always used Valspar paints. They are a great paint as far as application. They are a true 1 coat paint. Bright colors are very radiant. Being a former Lowe's employee in the paint department I have a lot of experience with this brand of paint. I don't think that I ever received negative feed back from a customer.
I like the ease of a one-coat application covers very well and the great choice of colors and easy clean up better than other brands I have used before.
