when choosing a quality paint jason you should be looking at what the paint needs to do ie if its durability you are after you should look at the film thickness ,how it has stood up in a scrub or scratch test, if exterior what the re cote cycle is, how it deals with sunlight and the elements ect . every substrate has its own set of things to take in to consideration,and there are many specialist paints out there for specific jobs,metal lime render ,concrete, ect so a good place to start is what dose this paint need to do
hope that makes sense.
