The market is flooded with cost-effective and premium paint products – not to mention several other models sprinkled in between. This makes buying paint for your project challenging, especially since every manufacturer claims to have the best quality. So, how do you tell which product is the real deal?

At Bay Valley Painting, we consider critical factors like color quality and longevity to determine which paints produce better results. Although premium-priced paints often have the best results, this doesn’t mean you can’t get the desired outcome with a less expensive product. Other vital factors to consider before choosing paint include project type and amount of labor.

Premium Paints and Applying Coats

Basic or less expensive paints are usually thinner than premium products, so you need several coats to achieve the desired look. This might be more expensive since you’ll require more paint to complete the coating. Premium paints, however, are manufactured to provide a thick, aesthetically pleasing, and durable coat. In addition, high quality offers a more evenly-coated surface which offsets the extra costs and time wasted using cheaper paints. If you are looking for intense colors for your coating, we can help you choose premium coats guaranteed to exceed your expectations without breaking the bank.

Choosing Paint Based on Project Type

As mentioned, premium paint products produce more enhanced colors and retain long-lasting quality. Depending on your project’s specifications and needs, you may need additional cash for quality paint. An excellent example is when painting the building’s exterior, a business room, or a frequently visited room. We can ensure everything looks spectacular and use paint in your exterior spaces that can withstand changing weather conditions. Premium paints last twice as long as other paint products and resist cracking, chipping, or fading.

What About Primer?

Another crucial factor impacting your decision is whether to buy a primer. Primers are designed to create an unblemished, even surface by preventing the wall from absorbing the paint after application. Typically, the less expensive the paint, the more primer is needed. If you find a way to achieve desired results with a cost-effective paint product, use a primer to save several coats and reduce the overall painting costs. Like paint products, consulting a professional can help you decide which is the best primer.

Primer and Mid-Priced Paint

If you are still deciding whether to invest in high-quality paint, consult a painting contractor for guidance. High-quality paint produces satisfactory and lasting results, saving you time and money in the long haul. However, if the cost of premium paint ridiculously exceeds your budget, it may not be worth it.

You can leverage our extensive experience to find mid-range paints that produce quality results without taking a sizeable chunk of your income. Several paint combos are cost-effective and don’t compromise the quality or aesthetics of your surfaces.
