The Valspar Paint Brand Explained

Exterior Paints

We are big fans of Valspar paints, and their exterior paints are some of the best on the market, helping to provide cutting edge protection from the elements. After all, they come equipped with FlexShield365™ Technology. This tech helps to provide year-round protection from cracking and peeling. Oh, and it doesn't stop there. Doubled with Complete color defense™, Valspar paints block harmful UV rays, which can work to fade your paintwork. UV rays are not just bad for the skin, but your paintwork too!

Valspar paints are also resistant to mold, mildew, and algae. With its low temp application, you can paint all year round, even on the chilliest days. These amazing paints can be applied in temperatures as low as 35 degrees Fahrenheit while still giving a sleek finish.

They also work on all kinds of surfaces – and not just your regular ones. For example, the Valspar Season Plus exterior paint can be used on either wood, cement, or brick. It applies perfectly well on stucco (concrete), metal, hardboard, aluminum, and vinyl.

With tons of Valspar exterior paint colors to choose from, you are sure to find a shade for the most popular areas around your home, including:

  • Brickwork
  • Porches, Floors & Steps
  • Barns & Fences
  • Sidings & Roofs

Interior Paints

Valspar interior paints are equipped with NANOGUARD® Technology. It sounds futuristic, and it is! Nanoguard works by forming a layer that is resistant to mildew and moisture. Like Valspar exterior paints, its interior line can be used on a host of surfaces. For one, the Perfect White Interior can be used on metal, cement, plaster, brick, wood, and drywall.

The company takes pride in its GREENGUARD® Gold Certification. Its paints don't have volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can worsen indoor air quality – and your health.

Valspar interior paints are also incredibly easy to clean, making them particularly suited for indoor use. In fact, cleaning them is a breeze! With its washable finish, all you need is warm, soapy water to remove any stubborn marks and stains let behind my a naughty child!

  • Walls

  • Floor

Before starting, spend a bit of time preparing your room to ensure the job goes smoothly.

While exterior paint works well on porches and floors, you can't beat a product designed for a particular use. Say hello to the Valspar 1533 range, one of the most popular choices for homeowners around the country. The enamel in this pot is tough, meaning this paint can keep surfaces safe from wear and tear due to its hard-wearing properties.

But wait, there's more. A versatile product, Valspar 1533 is not only for porches and floors. It can be used on patios and breezeways as well. While it is best for concrete, wood, and metal, we would generally not advise using on garage floors or parking areas. Instead, you may want to check out our review of the Valspar 24-137G Blue range below.

1533 paints boast anti-glare and low-sheen properties, making it particularly suited for outdoor use under the beating sun.

With its hard finish, the Valspar 1533 can take some time to dry, so be patient. Although some people complain, the long drying time affords the paintwork its added protective features.

Give it time, and you're good to go!

Just like the rest of your home, your barns and fences need some TLC too. When it comes to repainting these outdoor features, set your sights on the Valspar 3125-70.

With its sturdy yet durable finish, it can help to keep surfaces immune to the effect of weathering. Fade-resistant, this Valspar paint can maintain its hue for many years to come. In the long run, this saves you from having to do periodic paint jobs.

One feature we love about the 3125-70 range is that, compared to other Valspar products, you only need to do 1 coat of this product. It is usually dry to the touch after just an hour. Looking for that extra protection? Apply a second layer 4 hours after the first for unbeatable durability.

Despite its easy application, it's better to spend a bit of time prepping your surface before applying the first coat. To get the best look possible, make sure to strip the surface of peeling paint, mildew, dirt, and dust.

Have an outbuilding or garage complete with a metal roof and sides? I bet they could do with some sprucing. Well, if that's the case, you need the Valspar Metal Siding and Roof finish paint. Quite literally, it does exactly what it says on the tin.

With its acrylic formula, it can help to keep surfaces protected from rust and corrosion. As if things can't get any better, this durable paint is chalk and fade-resistant as well. Chalking happens when a paints pigmentation starts to breakdown, leaving a chalky, dusty like appearance on the surface of the paint.

One of the most significant advantages is that it has one of the fastest drying times in the market. With proper surface prep, it can be dry to the touch in as short as 30 minutes.

Painting ceilings can be, quite literally, a pain in the neck. If you are tired of missing spots and grasping for those hard-to-reach areas, you need to rethink your routine. With this Valspar ceiling paint, you can quickly identify where you have, but more importantly, haven't already painted.

When applied, the paint's light purple color helps you to clearly identify areas already covered, allowing you to quickly spot the areas left to do. Fear not, since it dries to a beautiful shade of white, your guests will never know the difference. Your secret is safe with us!

Spatter-resistant, the paint's flat sheen helps to reduce surface imperfection. As such, it can help make your ceilings smooth - even if they are full of irregularities.

Keeping true with some of the other Valspar paints, this product is best applied in 2 coats. But with the first coat drying in as little as 30 minutes, you shouldn't need more than half a day to revitalize your dull and dreary ceiling.

Soccer coach, caretaker, or teacher? Chances are you're more than familiar with high-visibility white paint. Guess what, Valspar has you covered too, with the high-quality 44-655P range. As a fast-drying latex paint, it can be used on concrete, clay, turf, or natural grass fields. It can also be made thinner with equal parts of water, so you can use this to stripe equipment as well.

Developed for commercial use, it is best for residential and industrial jobs. Apart from covering a wide area, its 30-minute drying time can help speed up the painting process.

What's great about this Valspar white paint is that it doesn't fade easily. This paint is made to last, even when it's used in areas with high daily traffic.


Valspar Vs Other Paint Brands


Still not convinced about Valspar paints? Well then, here's a head-to-head comparison to help you out:

Valspar vs. Behr

Behr paints tend to have a thicker consistency compared to Valspar. Valspar paints are mixed with primer, making them easier to apply on a wide array of surfaces. While both products have their merits, we think Valspar come out on top in this match-up.


Valspar vs. Dulux

Some Dulux users report their paints can get a little drippy. As such, it can be hard to achieve a smooth surface and a satisfying finish. Valspar's thin yet easy-to-apply lacquer makes it our hands-down favorite.


Valspar vs. Benjamin Moore

If there's one complaint, we often hear about Benjamin Moore paints, it's their poor coverage performance. Quite simply, users find they have to use more paint to achieve their desired effect. The reason? Likely inferior quality ingredients, which mean you end up needing more cans making it more expensive in the long run. In our opinion, Valspar is far superior.


Valspar vs. Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

Annie Sloan chalk paints are a great option at a premium price. Not only are Valspar chalk paints a cheaper choice, but they also come in more color options. Valspar is also easily accessible, in that Annie Sloan paints mostly retail in boutique stores.


Valspar vs. Rustoleum

Although we haven't spoken about spray-paints in our review, Valspar also offers an excellent range. While both brands are perfectly suited for their intended use, because Rustoleum is oil-based, we found the drying time to be a little longer than Valspar, which is water-based.



Where Can I Buy Valspar Paint?

Decided to buy, but not sure where? Valspar is exclusively sold through 2 stores: Amazon and your neighborhood Lowe's Home Improvement.

Buying from Lowe's can be a good option if you happen to have a branch near you. But stores are usually few and far between. Buying in-store also has the added frustration of turning up only to find your desired paint out of stock.

If you want a cheap and convenient way to get hold of your next Valspar paint, you really can't go wrong with Amazon. Most color choices are available for very affordable prices. Because of Amazon Prime and low-cost shipping, you can even get your hands on your paint the same day. For that reason, we recommend saving yourself the time and ordering from Amazon.
