    Default Olympic or Valspar?

    I've hired a painter to paint the exterior of my home, and he's recommended Valspar from Lowe's. Is it really that much better than Olympic?

    The color we've chosen is an Olympic color. I know Lowe's can match the color, but my experience has been that matches are never spot-on...

    Just wondering if any of you have expert advice concerning Valspar over Olympic or vice versa...

    Thanks -

    Steve

    I used to use Valspar extensively and never had a problem with it. IMHO, it's a good quality paint.

    Color matching has to do with the suppliers ability to mix, not the brand of the paint or its quality.
    I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
