5 Reasons You Don’t Want Cheaper Paint in Dayton, OH

In getting ready to paint your home, whether you are looking to paint the exterior or interior of your home you will ultimately need to have paint with which to make the project happen.

Of course, for people who find themselves with strict budgets, the temptation may come about to purchase paint that is cheaper – and as great as this temptation may well be, you have to push it aside because cheap paint will not be good for the painting project for a number of reasons.

When you go with cheaper paint, it’s entirely possible that you will be at least initially happy with the results that you get… but those results may well not be so great for long.

Let’s look at and consider five reasons you don’t want cheaper paint in Dayton OH

1. Worse Ingredients, Worse Paint

One thing that you’re going to suffer from when you’re making use of cheap paint is the fact that the very ingredients that go into the paint are significantly less good than the ingredients that you will find in even moderately priced paint.

The fact that the ingredients in the paint are that much worse than the ingredients in moderately priced paint will lead to worse paint results, as you will see and as will be explained shortly.

2. Harder To Use

Another factor that people may not take into account is the difficulty with which they will paint their home when they’re making use of cheaper paint.

Whether it is the way that it will be harder for you to apply to the surfaces that you are painting or even the way that the paint will not be the right consistency and require much stirring even to get it remotely close to what will be useful for painting your surfaces — and even then you may struggle with using it as paint.

3. May Not Be The Tint You Think

As much as you may well want the paint to look like the paint that is described on the side of the bucket, it’s entirely possible that when you purchase a cheaper paint that you will find that the paint doesn’t quite match that well.

Of course with any given paint you may find that it’s not a perfect match between what you think you’re getting and what you actually get but with the cheaper paints it may be even more the case.

4. It Will Fade More Quickly

It’s rather unfortunate as far as facts of a paint’s life go but when you get paint that is cheaper and therefore has the worse quality ingredients, there’s a very good chance that the paint will fade a lot faster than paint that costs even just a bit more.

If you can’t see the issue with this, think about it — when do we want to start thinking about painting or repainting a surface other than when we notice that the paint that we have previously used fading a bit?

So of course even though when we are putting down the money on the cheaper paint we think we are getting a better deal, yet when we see only a few years later fading paint and realize we need to paint again… it suddenly isn’t such a great deal anymore.

5. More Prone To Painting Problems

There are many problems that one can find going on with the surface that has been painted, far too many to be listed in an article such as this one.

It’s well worth mentioning, however, that when one makes use of cheaper paint, one is much more likely to find these problems — paint that starts peeling, paint that bubbles up, and even paint that just looks like the texture one can associate with an alligator.

Bottom Line

By making use of cheaper paint we do save money… but we pay more for the painting project over time and even right away when we start having issues.

Far better to put a little more money into paint and do not have these problems.
