Yep. Our hallway ceiling was done with it. Didn't use it personally but our decorator said it was excellent!
Oh and the second bedroom ceiling too. We only have two bedrooms, we don't have a big house
Many thanks for the reply

If a tradesman thinks its good, thats better than 100 weekend DIYers that have only experience with DIY shed products

Yes, well observed and your point is what exactly that no tradesmen use this site ?
I value the opinion of a qualified professional who has used a multitude of products over someone who paints a wall once every 2 or three years with the cheapest **** they can buy
Armistead is the new name for Glidden which is Dulux's budget trade paint brand. It was very popular as the quality was excellent and for a much lower price. It changed name as it got to the point where Glidden was getting too popular at the expense of the much more expensive (and profitable) Dulux Trade brand.

I know, 1 post in 4 years but 1000 comments - to much time to waste in his/her sad little life

A bit of a late addition to this page but I figured as I stumbled across it someone else might.

Armstead is indeed excellent, I've done entire houses in it with no trouble. I would still prefer Dulux trade as a product. It covers (slightly) better and is more resilient to a late roll over.

If you're DIY then I'd definitely go with Armstead as it'll save you a bundle. But the saving advantage is lost if you're paying someone else to put on an extra coat because the first one didn't quite cover up.

Oh and Dulux in the DIY sheds is a very different product to the trade stuff which is massively better quality and harder wearing.

And to the troll... Yes I am a trader.
