Saw Valspar polyurethane on sale for $17.99 a gallon. Seems like I've always ended up paying more like $30+ for a quality polyurethane like Mautz or Varathane, because I once tried some really inexpensive no-name brand thinking "polyurethane is polyurethane", and regretted it. Took forever to dry, didn't brush out well, strange cast to the gloss, etc.
But Valspar is a known big brand, right? Any Valspar devottees out there?
Application will be as floor and trim finish.
