Why is High-Quality Paint Important?
When it comes to painting your home, there are many things to consider such as color, brand, application, finishes, and everyone’s least favorite part, cost. Some may think that painting isn’t that expensive, and going cheap can save you money in the long run, but that is far from the truth. Spending a little extra upfront can take you a long way, such as giving you a longer-lasting product, a more appealing and cleaner paint job, and more durability.
While it’s nice to save money here and there, you must keep in mind that when you go with a cheaper product, you’re generally always compromising quality. Price over quality is a big factor when making the decision to paint your home. It’s your house, and you want your paint to not only look beautiful, but stand the test of time. When it comes to paint, you usually get what you pay for; the higher the cost, the better the quality of color and application. When you choose a higher-quality paint, you get:
Better coverage: Better coverage means that fewer coats of paint will take you farther!
Application: While applying your paint to the wall, a higher-quality paint can better cover old paint or trouble areas, and goes on more evenly, leaving little to no brush stroke lines.
Touch-ups: With premium paint, you won’t need to perform as many touch-ups as you’d need to with low-quality paint. More expensive paints are more durable, meaning they can be cleaned and scrubbed again and again without having to be touched-up.
Stain-resistant: Top-quality paints are better at resisting grime, mildew, dirt, and moisture build-up, making it easier to clean.
Fade-resistant: Higher-quality paints are extremely long-lasting, with a rich color that will not fade as quickly over time.
If you choose a low-quality paint, you’re going to be putting on many more coats than you should have to, as well as touching it up time after time. When you choose to spend just a little extra money now and put some extra work into your paint job, you’ll find that you actually end up paying less when you account for all the touch-ups and coats a lower quality paint will require. Paint is a quick and affordable way to completely transform your home, but if not done carefully, can also be a home’s downfall. When you choose quality over quantity, you’ll get a return on your investment with longer-lasting coats, superb coverage, more uniformity, and brighter colors!
