High Quality Paint: Worth the Investment

December 16, 2016 at 8:47 am | No comment | Category: Blog

A good paint job is only as good as its materials.  If you’re tempted to save a few dollars and buy the inexpensive paint, don’t give in!  High quality paint will cover better, save you time, give you the results you’re dreaming of, and ultimately will likely cost less than if you grab the low grade paint.  

Here is the scoop on why it’s important to only use top quality 100% acrylic latex paint in your home:

  • Adhesion – Superior binding agents in high quality paints help them to better adhere to any surface.
  • Camouflage – High quality paints can hide the previous coatings underneath, often covering in fewer coats – or even a single coat.  They also cover flaws in the drywall, dents, filled nail holes, etc. better and more evenly.
  • Spatter resistance – Good quality paint is formulated in a way that creates less spatter while it’s being applied.
  • Seamless application – High quality paint goes on evenly, and brush marks or roller marks tend to even out as you go.
  • Stain resistance – Top quality paints form a stronger barrier against soils and grime, preventing them from sinking in to the coating.
  • Scrubbability – High quality paint can stand up to scrubbing, should you need to apply some “elbow grease” to go after a stain or heavily soiled area.  Heavy scrubbing won’t damage the surface of a good quality paint.
  • Mildew / mold resistance – If you’re seeking to keep mildew and mold at bay, there are paints that are formulated to do so, and high quality versions of such paints will be able to provide superior protection against such stains.
  • Fade resistance – High quality paint is better at resisting fading, and here in Florida, that’s a big issue to consider!  You’ll probably deliberate at length when choosing the perfect color for your home, so be sure that color will stay true, even in the blazing sun.
  • Touch-ups – Top quality paint makes touch-ups less noticeable.
  • Cost – The best quality paint typically covers in a single coat.  When you’re calculating the cost of your project, it’s tempting to reach for the less expensive paint, but be warned that low quality paint will require multiple coats to achieve the same results as a single coat of high quality paint.  Save yourself money and invest in top quality paint.
  • Time – High quality paint that covers in a single coat will save you money and will save you time.  After painting a room in a low grade paint, you’ll need to go back to your starting point and repeat the process several times to get the right coverage.  If you use a high quality paint instead, you’ll likely only paint the room once!

The best – and possibly only – way to ensure you home is protected against the elements, looking beautiful inside and out, and didn’t cost you extra time or money is to invest in high quality paint and high quality materials, and have the paint applied by a highly-rated professional painting company with skilled artisan painters.  That’s where we come in!  The Painting Craftsmen is the best painting service Jacksonville FL homeowners trust for their painting projects.  We are known for our quality, and that includes quality of work and the knowledge that high quality materials produce the results our clients want.  Homes throughout Riverside Avondale, San Marco, downtown Jacksonville, and all along the beaches have received quality paint jobs from our skilled painting technicians.  Call on us to make your painting project dream a reality!
