Glidden Paint Introduces a New Formula

Glidden paint recently launched an improved formula that maintains a high quality but also keeps Glidden at a more affordable price point. A gallon of Glidden costs $16-$24 dollars and they feel it’s comparable to $50 gallon paint. They are so confident that they sent us a full press kit with everything we need to compare Glidden with other paints.
We’ll report back on our findings in a comparison test but we immediately liked the larger color chips that make it much easier to compare colors and visually gain a sense of how it will reflect light as well as feel to the touch. Their new lineup is a bit scaled back at 282 colors but that seems like a large enough palette for most people.

You can find Glidden paint at Home Depot and they have ready-to-go testers with built-in brushes for $2.97 which isn’t much of an investment to take home and try out for yourself.
They’ve also included a helpful fact-sheet of five-key characteristics of a quality interior paint.

    Looking for help with my “Generac 7550 exl” generator, bought at Home Depot (Dewitt / E. Syracuse) 09/06. It has 18 to 20 total hours of Run Time, and is only used for Power Outages to my home. The Fuel & Oil are Fresh.
    The problem is that after it’s last use, it will now only start and run 10 to 20 seconds shut off. I need to contact someone locally to solve this problem as soon as possible, can you please offer me some help?

    Thank You
    J. Prettyman

        I can’t thank you enough for your kind help, and I will be contacting some one close by. Now I don’t know why, when I contacted the store (Home Depot in Dewitt) Why they couldn’t give me this same info….But I am truly thankful to you & your service, in getting back to so quickly…..Thanks again.
