When you take a walk down any Auckland street, have you ever noticed that some of the houses feature paint jobs that have barely aged at all over the years, whereas others seem to peel and fade rapidly as time goes on?
A house that has a badly degrading paint job doesn't necessarily mean that it's a case of terrible workmanship (though you shouldn't rule that out). More likely, it's apparent the exterior either wasn't prepared properly before painting commenced, or the products themselves simply weren't of the necessary quality to hold up over time.
Paint versus the world
Of course, the Auckland climate (beating rain over the winter, powerful sunshine in the summer) means that paint has a lot to contend with once it's been applied to the exterior of your home. Interior painting, too, has to cope with plenty – sunshine through the windows, shoe scuffs and stains to name a few.
The quality of the paint used is very important with regards to how it will look in the months and years ahead.
The truth is, the quality of the paint used is very important with regards to how it will look in the months and years ahead. Therefore, it makes perfect sense to use that best paint possible, so you'll be pleased to hear that we at Kowhai Painting Company (Auckland Master Painters) largely use the finest out there – Resene. This well-regarded paint has an unrivalled reputation the world over, and there are over 6,000 colour swatches for you to choose from, meaning that the hue of your home will be unique to you. Let's take a look at just why using top-quality paint is worth it.
Quality above all else
Resene products are made to deliver the best-looking, longest-lasting finish – that reputation for quality didn't come from nowhere! The appearance of good paint will be smoother to look at, and more uniform than cheaper paints, with no mix of shades or fading. Additionally, high-quality paints are likely to last up to twice as long as those of a lesser standard, with no peeling or fading common with budget efforts.
Thus, though it might seem as though cheaper paints are the most financially viable option, this is in no way the case. With high-quality paints, you won't have to repaint for years to come, whereas poorer paints will see you getting your brush out within months – and forking out for yet more paint.
Did you know that good paint can be administered more quickly, with less effort, as the quality allows it to flow out more evenly? There will be less need to retouch, and fewer coats will be required. As an added bonus, great paint will not spatter as much as a low-cost equivalent – and it offers a great protective barrier to your Auckland home from natural elements.
