Mini Valspar v700 Emulsion Reviews

by Professional Decorators

Is Valspar paint really a trade brand?? We see so many conflicting reviews, so we thought we’d share what some professional decorators on Decorators Forum are saying about Valspar’s v700 (premium brand) emulsion.

Valspar paint, is there a reason people hate it? Other than the fact B&Q sell it? I’ve used it on loads of jobs recently and had no problems.  Last week’s customers had the trim in the satin, and I thought for a waterbased it was great.

is there a better durable emulsion than Valspar v700?  excellent coverage, no need to spot prime filler and touches up without flashing. only downside is the price

Sean Guild

Was impressed with Valspar to be fair, it’s better than some other brands both there.

Peter Whiter

Valspar v500 (cheaper than the v700 which is the premium stuff) first coat, not bad for p*ssy paint. I honestly don’t understand why some of you guys think it’s rubbish.

David Goldup

Valspar trade matt quite impressed one coat

John Gledhill

This is first coat of Valspar v700 artic fox over medium grey. I just can’t fault the stuff. No smell either.

Mia Watson

Customer got Valspar to cover over red. I thought “hear we go this will take few coats” but covered well with 1st coat. Think I could be converted if it’s all this good

Shaun Jamieson

***Calling all Valspar haters ***

One coat of Valspar in furrow LG equivalent over white. Great coverage and levels of brilliants. Rubbish paint they say 😉
