Chances are, you’ve heard the saying: “You get what you pay for”. This saying is applicable in all situations- but especially when it comes to commercial painting. By choosing to spend a little extra on high-quality paints for your commercial property, you are more likely to be 100% satisfied with your choice.
At TD Painting & Wallcovering, we only use high-quality materials: Benjamin Moore Paints, Sherwin Williams, and PPG Paints. When you hire us, you can be sure the job will be done right the first time with paint that will last.
We do understand that high-quality paint is more expensive- but in the long run, it is worth it to spend the extra. If you’re ready to paint your commercial property and are trying to weigh the advantages and disadvantage of using high-quality paint versus a budget option, you need to be aware that the quality of the paint does affect the outcome of the project.
Below are some of the reasons you should choose a high-quality, expensive paint over a cheaper, lower quality option.
3 Reasons to Choose High-Quality Materials
Below are 3 reasons you need to choose high-quality materials for your commercial painting project:
Easy to Apply
High-quality paint is usually much easier to apply than cheaper alternatives. You will have fewer splatters, which means cleanup is faster. You don’t have to worry about paint freckles on your skin and clothes like you do with cheap paint.
Plus, with high-quality paint, you get more uniform coverage, and the paint works with you instead of against you. The paint will hide any imperfections and the coverage will be even and consistent during the application process.
You should think of high-quality paint as an investment. When you spend more on paint upfront, you save money in the long run. After all, high-quality paint will last longer, so you don’t have to re-paint as often.
Plus, you don’t need as many coats when you use high-quality paint instead of cheaper options. This means you don’t have to pay for as many cans, which is great.
One of the reasons you paint your walls is to improve the aesthetics of a room. However, walls also have a purpose- to protect you and your business from the outside elements.
By using high-quality paint, your walls will be protected against everyday scuffs/scratches. Low-quality paint doesn’t do that. Instead, scuffs/scratches show up easily when you use low-quality paint and can make your walls look dirty or in need of a fresh coat of paint.
High-quality paints resist dirt, grime, and wear/tear. Plus, if something does happen, you can easily clean your walls when you use high-quality paint.
What to Look for When Choosing High-Quality Paint
All paint cans look similar to the naked eye, so it can be hard to separate high-quality paint from low-quality paint by looking at the can. There are 2 things you need to look for on the label:
- Volume of solids
- Titanium dioxide
In a high-quality paint, the volume of solids, such as pigments and binders needs to be high. The higher the volume of solids, the higher quality the paint is.
Titanium dioxide should be between 20% to 25%, which means you can even cover the surface with fewer coats.
If your commercial building is in need of painting, it’s important to use high-quality materials, such as paints from Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, and PPG. At TD Painting & Wallcovering, we use only high-quality paints and take the time to ensure that your project is done right the first time and will last for a long time.
