Product Review

BM Advanced

Benjamin Moore “Advanced” – I decided to give my home a facelift with a fresh coat of trim paint. So I tried “Advanced”. In general I liked it, it was creamy and applied nicely. One thing to take into consideration when using this paint is the re-coat drying time is 16 hours, not 4 hours like other waterbased paints. For me this was not a problem, since I was just re-coating the same color trim and one coat is all I needed. Is it more durable then others? time will tell. One thing I did find odd was that I started with a quart and the consistency was great. I liked it so much I decided to buy a gallon, however the consistency was much thinner than the quart. I am not sure why. In the end all trim seemed to be the same.
