A news article in an American newspaper recently claimed that some professional house painters there were in the habit of telling customers that "Paint is paint."The article claimed that these painters would choose a poor quality paint intentionally so they could repaint the customer's house sooner. If they used premium paint, the tradies complained, they might be retired before the house would need painting again.
We hope this isn't true. Using top quality paint gives you a load of benefits:
- Better looking results
- Longer lasting results
- Better performance
- Better energy savings (depending on the colour; light coloured paints with titanium dioxide lower energy use much more than cheap chalk-based paints, because they reflect more sunlight)
