Top 4 Reasons to Use High Quality Paint

Posted By

Repainting your home is one of the most popular home improvement projects. A fresh coat of paint can improve the mood of your home and its aesthetic appeal, transforming it into the jewel of the neighborhood. However, not all paints are not created equal.

Low-quality paints have substandard resins and do not adhere properly to the surface. They are harder to apply on walls and may come off sooner than expected. You may save in the short run by opting for low-quality paint, but will spend more in the long run.

Instead, look for high-quality paints as they have primer pigments that provide better coverage and have a higher percentage of binders than low-quality paints. This higher percentage of binders improves the paint’s ability to resist cracking and peeling and ensures better adherence to properly prepared surfaces.

Here are some benefits of high-quality paints and why most residential painters in Sonoma recommend them.

Longer Lasting

Though high-quality paints may cost more than lower quality ones, they can save you money in the long run on repair and refinishing. High quality exterior paints can often last twice as long as low-quality paints. Their binders are more resistant to scuffing, chalking, blistering, cracking, and bubbling.

Low-quality paints utilize cheap binders with large molecules that do not bind to walls effectively. With high-quality paint, you won’t need as many coats, which means you will need fewer coats of paint than you would have if you opted for low-quality paint.

Easier to Apply

High-quality paint flows out evenly and is a lot easier to apply than low-quality paint. It doesn’t splatter as much during application which simplifies cleanup. High-quality paint needs less retouching. Brush and roller marks tend to flow out and are unnoticeable in higher quality paints.

Colors are More Beautiful and Longer Lasting

Colorants are added to paints to impart color. The colorants in high quality paint blend effectively with it for a smooth and even tone and last longer than the ones used in low-quality paints. Lower quality colorants tend to break down or fade away with time. With high-quality paint, you will get a consistent final look that will last for years.

Easier to Maintain

High quality paints are stain resistant. As a result, they do not get dirty easily and any scuff marks can be easily removed with a sponge. With high-quality paint, you will spend more time appreciating the beauty of your walls and less time maintaining them.

How to Spot High Quality Paint

When choosing paint for your project, consider the volume of solids. High-quality paints have 35-50% solids. In contrast, low-quality paints have just 20-30% solids by volume.
