How do I know what paint brand to choose to paint my house in San Antonio?
When it comes to time to paint your house in San Antonio, you should consider a few things first. We recommend choosing paint quality over price. In other words, don’t just go for the cheapest paint you can find. You will most definitely be disappointed since cheap paint will take more coats to apply and won’t cover as well as a higher quality paint will. We’ve seen clients have to apply as much as 4 coats when they choose an “affordable paint” as opposed to one or two coats with a premium paint. It may seem like you are spending more when purchasing a premium paint but you don’t have apply as many coats. You will probably be making more trips back to the paint store to buy more paint if you go with an a cheaper quality paint.
Here are 3 recommended exterior paint lines from Benjamin Moore:
1. Benjamin Moore Aura – This is the highest quality exterior Benjamin Moore paint and the most expensive. Aura provides a higher build, allowing for a more protective coating on the surface, and it is self-priming on many surfaces. This means significantly less time per job, allowing you to move on to new projects more quickly. Aura does set up (dry) within one hour of application, so it is best to be applied by a professional painter or someone who has experience.
3. Ben by Benjamin Moore – is Benjamin Moore’s most user friendly exterior paint For homeowners that don’t want to spend a lot of money on one of their more premium paint products, Ben is an excellent alternative that offers a huge bang for its buck. The Ben exterior paint is low-VOC and extremely user friendly for novic painters. It is affordable and a favorite for both our DIY paintiers and professional painters.
4. Benjamin Moore Ultra Spec Exterior Paint – The is considered the Benjamin Moore “workhorse” paint. This should be used by paint professionals who know how to work with it.
