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 -

Re: Olympic or Valspar?

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.
