Sometimes the cheapest option is not always the best one. Choosing the paint that will cover your walls for the next several years is no exception to this rule. Trying to cut corners on cheaper, inferior paints can give you an appearance that is less than desirable and can cost you more money in the end.
Here are some of the reasons why a high-quality paint is worth the investment:
Benefit 1: Better Coverage
The best paints have a much better ratio of pigment to liquid. The pigment is what actually gives your walls the colour. High-quality paints will use more prime pigments which will allow the paint to go on better and keep its colour longer. Since more pigments are used in high-quality paint compared to liquids, the coats you apply will look thicker and fuller and eliminate the need for several coats to get your desired look. This will save you a ton of time as well as cutting the cost for extra gallons of cheaper paint.
Benefit 2: Durability
Peeling and cracking can be a big problem when using low-quality paint. Premium paints contain binders that will help your paint stick to your walls more effectively. These binders will not only keep your paint looking fresh, they also help with stains, film integrity and reduce the amount of cracking and peeling you find in other paints.
Benefit 3: Extras
A good, high-quality paint will typically have additives that will really give it an edge over its competition. You can look for paints that contain dispersing agents to help spread the paint evenly, preservatives that prevent spoilage and reduce mildew in moist rooms such as bathrooms.
