While painting your home may seem expensive when you see the cost of paint; it is actually one of the least expensive home renovations that you can do. When you paint your home, be it the interior or exterior, you aren’t going to want to do it again anytime soon. This means that you need to choose the right paint the first time. L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc is here to share some tips that will help you choose a high quality paint that you know will last you as long as possible before you are faced with painting your home again.
How to Choose from the Best High Quality Paints
It can seem difficult to choose the right color paint for your home, let alone a high quality one. There are several different ingredients found in paint that will determine if they are a paint that is high quality or not. These high quality ingredients usually cost more which is why you usually get what you pay for. If you are trying to get by with spending as little money as possible to paint your home, you will likely get results that will be less high quality. Here is what you should look for in a high quality paint:
- Paint Luster: Many people discount how important it is to choose the right luster for your painting project. The paint’s luster is going to depend on the mixture of pigment, resin and inert ingredients. Generally speaking, the glossier the paint is, the more cleanable it is going to be. However, when you have flat paint, it is usually better at hiding surface imperfections. This is why many people will choose something in the middle like satin or eggshell as the perfect luster for their home.
- One-Coat Hiding: A paint that has the ability to hide imperfections with only one coat is going to be a higher quality paint. The savings that you will see in time and labor will more than likely be worth the extra cost. You want to get good hiding, or coverage, from the paint that you choose for your home. One coat coverage is a good sign of a high quality paint.
- Scrubbable Ratings: You want to be able to clean your walls when they need it. This means that you need to pay attention to the scrubbable ratings of your paint. This can give you a good idea of the toughness of the paint you’re using. If the paint is too flat, it will more than likely come off whenever you try and wash the walls. You are going to want to look for a paint that has been deemed high performance.
