However, over the past couple of years we have randomly painted a number of rooms using Ralph Lauren paints (Flat paint) to add some color to the house. With the RL paints, I have noticed the coverage is not perfect ‚Äì I see faint roller marks when I look down the wall/side view. Even though I am fairly particular (some say anal), the marks and lack of coverage are very subtle and not something I lose sleep over.
I‚Äôm mainly just wondering if I am doing something wrong, and if it is my limited painting knowledge vs. RL paint quality, that is causing the lack of coverage. I have been applying ample amounts of paint, evenly distributed, but the marks are still there. Do I need to apply 2 or even 3 coats? That would be painful. Please let me know if I am missing something. If I can prevent this from occurring in future painting endeavors, all the better.
Lastly, many people have told me that despite the fact RL makes a decent paint, I would be better off using a more experienced painting manufacturer such as a Kelly Moore, Sherwin Williams, etc. Any comments or thoughts?
