here is the answer for you
Every paint manufacture has multiple product lines to customers’ needs
It is like buying a car, every brand has compact cars, sedans and SUVs
let’s take Benjamin Moore for example.
full color selection, zero voc, odor disappears in one or two days. no primer inside, washable only in low sheen and eggshell finish, for people on budget
full color selection, zero voc, low to no odor, primer inside, washable in all finish, mildew resistance, for people that smell is concern
full color selection, zero voc, low odor, high percentage primer inside, washable in all finish, mildew resistance, good for deep and vivid color such accent wall
Now, I hope you get some idea of the difference between them.
The other difference I did not mention is the pricing. They do cost differently from $40, $63 and $74 per gallon respectively.
If you consider DIY or upgrade your paint, do you really need $74 Aura for the project?
In my opinion, it is not necessary for interior painting unless you are doing dramatic color change such as black to white or you want to paint vivid color like bright red and yellow or you want to paint very deep color accent wall.
In this case, you can take advantage of high percentage of primer inside Aura to reduce labor cost.
Pro tips: any Benjamin Moore color that ends with “-30” and below requires primer as base coat to achieve color accurately, For instance 2111-30, 2111-20 and 2111-10
However, if you are doing exterior painting, Aura is best bet for your project. It is because the high percentage of primer inside Aura promotes adhesion to surface and gives you a long lasting result
Pro tips: Use latex extender with Aura when painting to avoid roller lines as it dries too fast
As profession painter and toronto condo painters, I would recommend, instead of spending money on $74 dollar paint, it is better to invest a $20 brush and $7-$10 paint rollers such as Purdy brush and rollers.
The reason is the brush holds more paint than cheap dollar store brush so that you can get the job faster. Also, the shape of the brush gives you a straight cutting lines.
the $7-$10 dollar rollers hold more paint than cheap dollar store paint rollers so that you spend more time on rolling rather than spending more time to get the paint from roller tray. Plus, those expensive paint rollers never shed and gives you a smooth finish.
At the end, if you are on budget, go with Benjamin Moore Ultraspec, Sherwin Williams Quali Koat and Dulux Xpert.
If you want to upgrade, go with Benjamin Moore Regal, Sherwin Williams Super Paint / Opulence and Dulux Lifemaster.
If you want to deep color accent wall, go with Benjamin Moore Aura, Sherwin Williams Duration and Dulux Diamond.
