Why is Some Paint More Expensive than Others?

It’s important not to cut corners when choosing paint for your home’s interior and make sure to always use quality paint products. For some jobs, you may even need top-of-the-line quality paint. So, what makes some paint more expensive than others? The answer lies in the mixture.

Paint is a mixture that contains a solvent, a binder, and pigments. The pigment and the binder and the “solids” in the mixture. The solids remain after the paint dries and the moisture evaporates, giving you the beautiful wall colors you desire. Paints with higher ratio of solids in their mixtures tend to be more expensive. Paint with a low amount of solids is considered a watered down paint product and may not give you the results you expect.

Paint Enamel

Paint enamel is a step up from regular wall paint if you’re looking for a more durable product that will be resistance to wear and tear. Enamels are great to use on trim and doors because these places are the most vulnerable to scuffs and marks and other kinds of wear and tear.

Exterior Painting for your Home

If you’re planning on getting an exterior painting job done for your home, the same rule of thumb applies. Whatever you do, don’t cut corners on the quality of your exterior paint. Your home’s exterior is constantly exposed to the sun’s rays and other elements such as rain, wind and humidity that affect the durability of your home’s exterior painting. If you cut corners on your exterior paint, you may find yourself needing to re-paint your home all over again in just a few years. Having to do the exterior painting all over again will be more expensive in the long run. So, it’s better to invest a little more on quality paint materials now and enjoy the finished work for years to come. It’s worth it!
