Many customers come through our door asking us about paint quality vs. price and what’s really the best value for their money.

That’s why it’s important to us to sell only the best paint in Dallas, at the best paint store in Dallas.
Here’s everything you should know about paint quality vs. price from Pinnacle Coatings Group.
Don’t Let the Price Tag Fool You Into Making a Poor Purchase
When you walk the aisles at a national retailer for any type of product, from spray paint to aluminum foil, remember you get what you pay for. In the case of paints, this doesn’t just apply to the quality of the product, but in some cases the quantity as well. A lot of paint products are discounted by removing solids (coverage) which leads to a user having to apply multiple coats to get proper coverage, which also shortens the life cycle and durability of the finishes. The manufacturers use price as the bait, assuming consumers will not figure out the game being played.
What’s In the Can?
Take for example your typical spray paint: while the traditional inexpensive spray paint you can pick up at Walmart for $1.39/can may seem like an attractive purchase, when you take a look inside the can, we see a different picture. Sometimes, the actual quantity of paint in that can is equal to what a nail polish bottle can hold, and the rest is solvent. Solvents aid paint in the drying process, but when they’re used as a filler or extender to make up for the lack of solids (pigment) of the actual product, it leads a user to having to apply multiple coats to get proper coverage.
These cheaper products also don’t tend to come with as much or any rust protectant in the product, so you’ve got to buy more cans to complete your project in the first place, and then it will rust in no time. At the end of the day, you’re losing money and time and sacrificing quality when you choose the cheaper product. Take the time to compare and shop, and you’ll be delighted with how your projects turn out.
