Why Use Premium Paint

The Importance of Paint Quality

When it comes to coverage, cleanup, and durability, paint quality determines the paint job. Knowing the qualities of each will help you determine which paint to use and how much you should spend.

Regardless of the type of paint you will be using, one of the most important factors in the ultimate success of any paint job is the quality of paint used. On this subject, experts agree: You should use the highest quality paint to get the best paint performance.

How do you identify top quality paint?

Unless you are a paint chemist, you should simply purchase the best paint within your favorite manufacturer's line of products. More costly paints typically contain a higher percentage of better quality ingredients that are critical to superior paint performance. Top quality paints outperform ordinary grades of paint in many ways:

  • They are more durable and long-lasting.

  • They often have better hiding characteristics, which is especially important when you are painting over a darker color.

  • They are easier to apply.

  • They have more uniform color and sheen, and they maintain their original color and sheen better over time, so your paint job will continue to look good for a longer period.

  • They frequently contain higher levels of additives—for example, more mildewcide to help keep unsightly mildew in check.

Top-quality paints are easier to apply and maintain.

Painting with a top-quality paint can add years to the life of a paint job and save hundreds or even thousands of dollars (US) in the form of lower home maintenance costs. This is especially true with exterior paints. With proper surface preparation, top quality exterior paint can last 10 years or more, compared to about 4 years with ordinary exterior paint. The best way to appreciate this "investment value" of top-quality paint is to compare the life-cycle cost or "cost per year of service" for high quality and ordinary paints. The fact remains, when it comes to paint, it pays to invest in the best. And that is true whether you are doing exterior or interior painting.
