Details

Area Preparation: 

Surfaces to be coated must be clean and dry. Remove all loose, peeling paint, dirt, mildew, grease, oil, chalk, rust, and any other surface contaminants. Repair all moisture problems. Blistering and peeling issues are commonly caused by moisture behind the paint film. Putty all nail holes and caulk all cracks and open seams. Sand all glossy, rough and patched surfaces. Stucco, concrete and masonry surfaces must be completely dry, free of efflorescence and allowed to cure for 30 days prior to painting. The appropriate primer is recommended for all uncoated surfaces and special substrates such as tannin staining wood, preprimed and unprimed hardboard, new or chalky masonry, and bare metal. WARNING! If you scrape, sand, or remove old paint, you may release lead dust or fumes. LEAD IS TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO LEAD DUST OR FUMES CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ILLNESS, SUCH AS BRAIN DAMAGE, ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN. PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD ALSO AVOID EXPOSURE. Wear a properly fitted NOISH-approved respirator and prevent skin contact to control lead exposure. Clean up carefully with a HEPA vacuum and a wet mop. Before you start, find out how to protect yourself and your family by contacting the USEPA National Lead Information Hotline at 1-800-424-LEAD or log on to www.epa.gov/lead. Follow these instructions to control exposure to other hazardous substances that may be released during surface preparation.

Application: 

Stir thoroughly. Apply with a high quality brush, roller, paint pad, or by spray equipment. When using more than one container of the same color, intermix to ensure color uniformity. Do not thin.

Do not apply late in the date when dew and condensation are likely to form or if rain or snow is expected.

Drying Time:

Dry time at 77°F and 50% relative humidity, To Touch: 30 minutes   To Recoat: 4 hours Drying times listed may vary depending on temperature, humidity, color, film build, and air movement.

Questions and Answers
Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST paint! I have never used a paint that works so well! I am so happy with this brand, and the color we picked! It is seriously the PERFECT color for our house! I don't know how they make the colors so vibrant and nice, but they do! I love the fact that it's a paint and primer all in one, so you don't have to mix anything together. The paint came in a huge tub as well, which came in handy! I didn't have to keep opening a new can. You just stir the paint that is in the container, and you are good to go. You can use paint brushes for your project, but I recommend a paint sprayer. It makes life so much easier! Just fill the pain and spray. I think it makes it look more even too, without brush strokes! The BEST thing about this paint is that you really only need ONE COAT! You can do more of course but with one coat, it actually covers your house. This paint also dries pretty quickly. That is very important to me because we get a lot of rain and I don't want it washing off! I honestly recommend getting a couple more cans than you think you are going to need though just in case. That way, if your measurements are off, you still have enough and can avoid going back to get more. I seriously love this paint and how great it works and how awesome it looks! I highly recommend getting this brand and kind of paint the next time you do a house painting project! It's worth it, and you will not regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was great paint! I received my paint about a month ago and it's finally nice enough to try it. I wasn't disappointed. I have a mini farm with lots of small buildings and I wasn't sure how it would work on untreated wood that had been exposed to the elements. It fully covered the wood with only one coat. The paint is thick and easy to apply. I had no problems with drips. It also had very little odor. The paint dried quickly on a breezy day and wasn't tacky. I was very happy with the paint and highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heavy Paint I received this item as a "PPG Insider," meaning they sent to me a free sample to review. I appreciate the opportunity. This paint is noticeably thicker than other paints, presumably to account for the paint and primer in one action. I think the color is true and nice. I really do worry about the longevity of the paint not being painted with multiple coats - maybe one coat is better. I honestly have no clue but historical painting techniques stick in my mind. Also, one coat is not guaranteed. For example, I used on an exterior surface that needed some repair and it needed more than one coat. That's fine, understandable. Paint is good, not greatest, but if you do the right preparation, it should work for your project. If the price is right, go for it. If it's cheaper to get a separate primer and paint, I'd go that route and paint two coats. More time spent, presumably better result long term.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth application! My husband and I had been planning to repaint our current porch and the extension we built onto the original. We used the Glidden One Coat Exterior Paint +Primer to try to save steps of multiple coats and priming. This paint is amazing! I was pretty hesitant as I’ve always had to apply primer, plus multiple coats when painting. The paint goes on smooth, no bubbles and dries quickly. Just a small amount of paint goes very far as well. We used the color Diversion and it looks great as I’m driving up to the house. It’s neutral yet original looking. I have enough paint left so I can paint my chicken coop next! Best exterior paint I’ve ever used!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Coat, Many Colors The exterior of our house needed to be painted. I wasn't pleased with the estimated cost to hire "professionals", and decided that we could do it ourselves. Glidden One Coat exterior paint in satin finish was my choice. I was pleased with the many color options on the website and my choice, although difficult, I was very pleased with the result, and I chose Gray Glimpse, a very light gray. This paint is truly exceptional. It covers evenly and, yes, in one coat. It dried quickly and looked gorgeous. Since it covers so well, I used less paint and the painting task was completed in less time. I noticed that when I got some on my hands and nails, that it took a bit of scrubbing to remove. That impressed me, as it made me realize that it's great quality. I also was not bombarded by heavy paint fumes. The project wall took very little time to complete. because this paint does such a good job, it was a fun task. I've never been excited by paint before, but I highly recommend this paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great exterior paint Used this paint on the outside of my French doors to the basement. It applied easy, and without a lot of drips. I brushed it on and it went on quick and easy. Looks terrific after it dried and set for a day. Easy to wipe off dirt after the rain

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the finish! We just had our house sided and I wanted to paint the shutters and wood trim and posts on the porch. I originally wanted an eggshell finish, but it wasn't avaiable, so I used satin finish instead. It was perfect. It went on easily, though I did use 2 coats. The only reason was I used a light colored primer and black paint, and due to the wood grain-like surface of the shutters, I went with the 2nd coat. It dried quickly and evenly. I'm really pleased with the results, and I'm looking for other projects to use the remaining paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This. Paint. Is. Great. Glidden One Coat is just that! While I am an avid DIYer, I had a friend that is a professional painter help with painting. He was sceptical that the five gallons was going to cover my entire home. He was pleasantly surprised to find that the paint covered extremely well. I found the paint covered at the 350 square feet as advertised. I'm so excited about how beautiful my home looks!
