We used afew drums of Taubmans we were honestly applying 4-5 coats on some walls. Coverage and the body of the paint is terrible, I don't recommend to tradies or home owners We won't be using Taubmans again.
Purchased for A$800.00.
Happy not to be using 'other' leading brand.
After being in commercial and residential painting for years, it has been specified by architects to use DULUX. I don't know what kind of 'kickbacks' they must get but obviously worth having a 2nd rate paintjob must be worth it. Residential side has now been specifying endure and i hope it NEVER changes back to that washy looking gear. And also end up using a lot less paint
Love, Love, Love this paint
Just finished painting my whole house with this paint and I love it. Thick, no drips, and fantastic coverage. I can't believe the bad reviews, maybe competitors are panicking. Buy this paint, you won't be disappointed.
Purchased in May 2020 for A$200.00.
Super poor coverage
So we chose a dark blue/green for our feature wall
Size of the wall approx 2.8m x 7m long
The wall just needed some light patching, was off white in colour
Now I just can’t believe this
6 COATS to get coverage!!!!
Paint turns a different colour with age and sunlight.
After almost ten years of wear and tear on the family room walls, we decided to repaint. Upon removing the paintings, mirrors and wall hangings, we discovered that the paint ("Rubble") had gradually changed colour to a pink/yellow hue where the paint was not exposed to daylight. As a result, we are having to paint the entire home, three floors, as we want all painted surfaces to match. Now that we are aware of the colour change, it is apparent that it has changed to a lesser extent in darker areas but still no longer matches the original colour. Extremely disappointed in the product.
Stinks like gas and cat's pee.
WARNING: Don't use if going into social-isolation, in lockdown during pandemic, in children's rooms or ever really. This paint dries quickly but continues to reek for weeks ;it smells like a cross between gas and cat's pee. Worse when the room heats up. When I complained after at least 2 weeks of foul smell , Taubmans gave same response I've read on this site about 'ghost odour' (from 2018) and wanted details of 'all the steps you've followed in relation to pre-painting surface preparation and product application' and proof of purchase. I've ...successfully painted many houses over the years and never had this problem before. The paint went over a previously painted ceiling in a modern flat. Label has no warning of how long and how much it stinks - actually says its 'asthma and allergy friendly'. Bought it at Bunnings and there was no warning on shelves near it and no-one cautioned me about the possible smell. This same reeking stench lingering for weeks also happened when I used Taubmans (flat)pink to white ceiling paint because the Endure still stank. Painted in late February and still can't use either bedroom.
Taubmans endure stench
Bought taubmans endure 6litres on special at Bunnings. Thinking it would be a good product because of its reputation. As it started to dry there was a horrible smell which has been around for over a week and still as strong. Fans going, Doors open and still no change. My husband and I have developed sore throats from the smell. Can’t go in the room. Is this old stock Bunnings are selling and not warning customers?
Not the Best Paint I Have Used
Just painted the AC Cement walls in 3 bedrooms, kitchen lounge, bathroom and laundry with Endure. After 2 coats we still don’t have full cover. We had the colour matched, came up slightly darker which was fine but we are still trying to get full cover in some spots. Pretty ordinary given the price. Would not recommend. We also used the so called one coat ceiling paint - that’s a joke.
Purchased in January 2020 at Bunnings for A$80.00.
was very happy with result
I used Ranch house (mid brown tinted from
Accent base) on bedroom walls (2 coats) and low sheen white (wall variant not the ceiling type) on onsweet ceiling and cornice , both over tradex prep primer (2 coats) and couldn't be happier , i'm perfectly happy with the sheen level , not one roller track mark to be found , i found the humidity level seems to be the biggest factor on drying time (@60% rel humidity drying was slow enough to not have to rush but when the humidity got to 70% (painting in a closed room on a humid afternoon) it felt like ...
Purchased in February 2020 at Taubmans Professional Trade Centre.
The consistency of the paint was good. It went on easily and only dripped if I applied too much paint to my brush or roller.
This paint was used in the master bedroom of my house.
The colour came out really well over the white undercoat. I covered a dark purple wall with the whispering peach colour in 1/4 strength. I applied two coats, with a drying time around 2.5 hours and the finish is very good. I applied both coats fairly liberally. I would use this paint again.
It's low sheen and not matt. It's thin and doesn't cover. I'm covering a pale blue and wanting it to be white so I've done two coats of primer and two coats of Endure and you can still see the blue through it. Waste of time and money.
Purchased in December 2019 for A$85.00.
Bought this from bunnings. Recommend from sales clerk. Absolutely horrible finish. Roller lines everywhere. 3 coats still lines! Waste of time and money, don't waste your time and get another brand!
Taubmans Endure : never used it before, never again
I don't usually use this paint professionally but the client wanted us to give it a go.
I was painting a hallway with a darker colour. Wall prep was per normal, painting over 10yr old paint in good condition.
I found the paint dried very fast, too fast at 18-20 degrees 30% humidity. about twice as fast as Haymes expressions or Taubmans Easy Coat or living silk. Made it very hard to get a good finish with a roller. Possibly with the trend of Low or No VOCCs paints now, neither which flow and dry rapidly.
I'm having real difficulties getting a clean no lines finish from a roller.
Purchased in November 2019 for A$89.00.
drying too quickly even in cool weather.
Taubmans Endure seems to dry too quickly.
Originally used a 250 taubmans sample pot, but i couldn't keep going back over it with my brush as it started to lift off with repeated brush strokes. Wall had another brand (Dulux) applied from their sample pot no issues could insure nice coverage with repeated brush strokes but alas not the case with Taubmans. I was painting a strip between ceiling and wood work hence brush use.
It was suggested the area might have been to warm due to heater having been on before i started to paint!
So left heater off...
Only 3 years on and it looks like it’s been there for 30 years!
We owner built our home and I personally hand painted both interior and exterior with taubmans endure.... wanted a quality finish but got a very poor result.
Weathertex is pre primed but I did a coat of undercoat and two top coats... the paint is streaky, markets easily, chips off with hose washing, and now it has rusty looking stains in the grooves. High pressure hosing did not remove. So I have to repaint the whole house again. Not happy jan! Waste of time, energy and lots of money. Internal walls also mark way too easily for my liking. No idea why I listened to the sales pitch.
Very Disappointing coverage
I bought a 10 litre tin of Taubmans ceiling white and the coverage is rubbish. With the paint being so thin it's really hard to get a smooth finish. It takes so much time to get rid of the roller line between each run so it doesn't dry before you get to the next run, yes you can get it smooth but you need to be so perfect on the roller each run across the ceiling and 3 coats to even get close to ok coverage on the ceiling with my fluffy wool roller, don't even try using this paint with a cheapie foam roller!! I should have just stayed with Dulux!!
Used Taubmans Endure to cover Taubmans Living Silk - so far I have put on 3 coats and still do not have a good coverage. Can see stark lines between consecutive roller applications. Really disappointed.
Purchased in April 2019 for A$92.00.
Painted in November and was covered in mildew during wet weather in January,even under cover from the rain.Would not recommend this paint for tropical areas.The base had two coats of undercoat and two coats of Endure finish.
Purchased in November 2018.
Have painted a lot of walls in my life. Was talked into buying this paint at Bunnings. Terrible coverage, have painted the bedroom walls with 2 coats & still needs another coat. Walls were sanded & washed before applying. Very shiny for a low sheen paint. Thinking of starting again now with Dulux, which is extremely annoying as I have a whole house to paint. Absolute waste of time & money. Would NOT recommend this paint to anyone.
It is matt and can still wipe clean, unlike a flat finish. Very happy with the way the paint went on the wall. Made job easy and finish is perfect.
Questions & Answers
I have used taubmans endure throughout the house, I was wondering if it is suitable for bathroom. I do have some mould issues, and was wondering how to best prep the walls before painting.
