Denise of Durham, Other on April 22, 2017Satisfaction RatingI’ve been corresponding with Valspar over an issue with smelly walls. An odour that was being omitted smelt like cat wee. My poor cat nearly got rehomed. It took weeks to realise it wasn’t her to blame. Valspar were not sympathetic to all the distress I’ve been going through and still are. When I found out through my own research about this so called ‘Wall Odour Phenomenon’ I contacted Valspar, it was only because I’d publically published the email I sent to them on their Facebook UK page that they responded.They asked how I’d prepared my walls beforehand (I have 4 years training in CITY & Guilds Painting and Decorating). They were happy I’d followed the right procedure. They asked what the wall substrate was. They couldn’t blame this as I’ve been emulsioning my walls for over 25 years. They proceeded to blame the Dulux paint that was present underneath. There was no need to prime the walls as the Valspar paint used was paint and primer in one. I’m so angry that if this ‘phenomena’ has been known to the paint manufacturing business for years then why isn’t there a warning on the paint cans? Or at least in their brochures? Something should be put in place on how to prepare walls to stop this from happening and what measures should be taken to safeguard the walls from this so called bacteria in the future.There is very little if no information out there about this issue, unless you are experiencing it for yourself you would never know the so called ‘Phenomenon’ existed. Both the supplier B&Q and Valspar were really unhelpful. They just regurgitated the word for word report from the PRA (Paint Research Association). My gut instinct is that this isn’t a wall bacteria but something that is either present within the paint or the shelf life of the paint has been dramatically reduced due to the removal of solvents to cut emissions. I’m still waiting on a response from B&Q over the matter and Valspar have sent me a voucher to cover the cost of a new tin of paint. I will however have to use a Sealer to seal in the smell but this is very expensive and it’s going to cost over £200 to put right so sorry Valspar. One tin of paint doesn’t cut it!Helpful?YesNo

jo of Tiffin, OH on Aug. 1, 2016Satisfaction RatingWe bought Valspar signature semi-gloss. This says it has primer in it, it’s one coat. After three coats rolled on, it still has some blue showing through. After 36 hours when we tried to take the edge tape off, the paint peeled like a bad plastic wrap. It even peeled the old paint and paper off the drywall. The valspar rep refunded us and bought us different paint (signature high-hiding paint and primer.) He also told us the walls had been wiped down with 409, that’s why we had a problem. We bought this house from my brother and his wife and they never bought 409 or wiped down the walls! We are still working on getting this bad paint off and we may need to have drywall torn out and reinstalled. I’m not sure how to proceed with this new valspar, but if it gives us problems we may have to go after valspar in court.Helpful?YesNo
