Home Depot is one of the most popular stores for purchasing home improvement supplies, including many different types of paint.
However, you may be wondering – is Sherwin Williams ones of the paint brands that Home Depot carries?
Does Home Depot carry Sherwin-Williams paint, and what should you know before buying paint at Home Depot?
In this article, we’ll cover everything that you need to know.
Is Sherwin Williams Paint Sold At Home Depot?
No. Home Depot does not carry any Sherwin-Williams paint, due to a deal that Sherwin-Williams has made with Lowe’s. This partnership was extended in 2018, and still remains now in 2023.
Because of this exclusive deal, no Sherwin-Williams paint is available at Home Depot.
This means that if you want to buy Sherwin-Williams paint, you will need to do it at one of the other stores that carry it (such as Lowe’s, or a Sherwin-Williams store.)
However, it should be noted that Home Depot does carry many other brands of paint.
In fact, paint is one of the most popular types of items to purchase at Home Depot, so they’ve gone to great lengths to ensure they have a reasonable selection.
What Paint Brands Does Home Depot Carry?
Home Depot carries a wide variety of paint brands, including but not limited to:
- Behr (Dynasty, Marquee, Ultra, Premium Plus)
- Diamond Brite Paint
- Harris Titanium
- Gildden (Diamond, Premium, Essentials)
Home Depot carries many different types of paint, including both interior and exterior paints, primers, spray paint, and finishes.
It should be noted that Home Depot also carries lines of paints of all different qualities – to top-of-the-line premium offerings, to budget-friendly options.
What Stores Carry Sherwin-Williams Paint?
Let’s say that despite all of the brands carried by Home Depot, you are set on purchasing Sherwin-Williams paint. Where can you buy it?
The best option would be to buy it at one of Sherwin-Williams’ retail stores. Sherwin-Williams currently has over 4,400 stores, and if you visit one of their stores you’re likely to find the largest and most diverse offering of their products.
Sherwin-Williams also has a partnership with Lowe’s, so you’ll be able to find Sherwin-Williams paints at one of Lowe’s 1,700+ stores as well.
Finally, Sherwin-Williams is also available online through Sherwin-Williams’ website, as well as Lowe’s’ website.
Paint can be ordered to be picked up at the store, saving contractors plenty of time and allowing them to simply pick up their paint on the way to the job site.
How Good Is Home Depot Paint Matching?
Paint matching is incredibly important to ensure that the right paint is selected for your job. But how accurate is the paint matching service offered by Home Depot?
Thankfully, things have come a long way in this regard, and you should be able to get matches that are extremely close.
Paint matching is no longer done by eyeballing it – instead, it is all done digitally, using machines and computers that shine light on the sample to match the paint as closely as possible.
Therefore, as long as you have a good sample to bring in, you can be confident that the paint matching will be near-perfect.
That being said, sheen can be a problem. For best results, try to use the same brand / sheen as the original paint, or be prepared to repaint the entire wall. Painting just a few spots can still stand out quite easily, even if the color is matched exactly the same.
It should be noted that Home Depot can also match any Sherwin-Williams paint samples that you bring into the store, despite not carrying Sherwin-Williams paint themselves.
What Is Home Depot’s Paint Return Policy?
Home Depot allows returns on paint up to 30 days after purchase, if you don’t like the color of the paint that you received.
Usually, Home Depot will try to work with you to find a more suitable color for your project.
However, if you’ve used a lot of the paint already or you don’t have a receipt, they are unlikely to accept your return.
Still, this policy is very generous, so if you want to try out an alternative brand of paint you can do so without a lot of risk.
Unfortunately, Home Depot does not carry Sherwin-Williams paint. Instead, you can buy Sherwin-Williams paint at one of their retail stores, or at your local Lowe’s.
That being said, Home Depot does carry several other paint brands that you may wish to try out.
