Valspar Paint Brands Earn Top Paint Rankings

Published on 2015-05-22. Author : SpecialChem

CHICAGO -- Two Valspar paint brands received top scores from a leading consumer publication.

Valspar Reserve® was the highest scoring zero-VOC paint and was followed by the Valspar Signature® formulation. Moreover, it's the third consecutive year that Signature has, as a result of the publication's testing, earned a coveted consumer recommendation.

The rigorous testing, according to the magazine, included scrubbing the finishes with harsh abrasives to measure resistance to wear, and each paint also was evaluated on performance levels based on hide, surface smoothness, resistance to staining, gloss change, sticking, mildew and fading.

The category review was conducted as part of an editorial focus on how to boost a home's value with easy upgrades, such as painting. Although the testing was limited to interior paints, in suggesting ways to spruce up a home's curb appeal, the editors also called out Valspar DuraMax Semi-Gloss as a top-performing exterior paint.

"Everyone at Valspar diligently works to produce the highest quality paint product possible. So, when our paints pass such critical testing with flying colors like this, it's a moment we all take pride in. It's the best validation possible that we're delivering on our commitment," said Heidi Petz, Valspar vice president of marketing.
