I've been decorating my house over a period of months and have used many brands of paint but the latest colour I wanted to use was only available through homebase. I was a bit reluctant to use it as in the past I have found DIY stores own brand of an inferior quality. However having used some emulsion from Homebase's own range of colours I have been very suprised and impressed by the quality.
The coverage is excellent and the value for money exceptional particularly at the moment when they are offering a deal where you can buy two 2.5 litre tins for £15 instead of the usual £10.99 each.
Also if you discover you have bought too much as long as you return a tin unopenend they will gladly give you your money back.
Their range of colours is extremely good and they always seem to have a plentiful supply in my local store.
The paint dries quickly within two hours and gives an even flawless finish. I have found that two coats are necessary to give an even coverage, which is better than some 'named' brands which required three coats to get an even finish. I have only used the emulsion so far and will update when I get to the gloss!
I highly recommend this product - you won't be disappointed!
Summary: Definitely worth a try!
