While it’s nice to save money, there are a few things for which quality should not be compromised for a lower price. Paint is one of those items where you get what you pay for.
Here are 10 Reasons why high-quality paint is worth the money:
- Easier application. High quality paints level better and tend to go on more evenly. Brush and roller marks flow out and become unnoticeable.
- Spatter resistance. High quality paints are not as likely to spatter during application.
- Concealing capability. High quality paints can usually hide the original wall color and imperfections in less coats, saving time (Labor) and money (Labor and Materials) from needing to apply additional coats of paint.
- Touch-up capability. Touch-ups can be done easily and are unnoticeable with high-quality paints.
- Stain resistance. Top-quality paints tend to have better grime and dirt resistance and keep dirt from sinking in, making for easier cleaning. You can wipe the walls, ceilings and trim without harming the finish.
- Scrub resistance. These paints are tougher and usually can withstand scrubbing without the surface being damaged or effecting the finish.
- Imprint resistance. Shelves, windowsills and other face-up surfaces can gather prints when objects are placed on them. This problem is significantly minimized with high quality paints (especially eggshell finishes).
- Stick resistance. The smooth finish produced with high quality paints allows the paint to be less susceptible to sticking.
- Mildew resistance. Mildew resistant agents are much better in high-quality paints. If you don’t want mildew, don’t compromise on paint quality. Think kitchen, bathroom, laundry room and in some cases garages and basements.
- Fade resistance. To ensure your paint color stays just as you want it, use a high quality 100% acrylic latex paint. These paints maintain their fresh appearance for years.
