Home Living : June 16th 2009
2 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, June 16, 2009 HOMELIVING It pays to splash out on paint Paint & decorate Tony Isgrove Painter, decorator, and president of the Master Painters Association Why is paint quality important? Many of us tend to take quality for granted when buyingpaint. We canbe so bowled over by a colour we like and simply buy it -- never mind whattypeof surface it is going to have to cover. We also use our experience of aparticular product, or we simply trust in a certain brand. We also like to save money where we can. When we think we have two similar products, we often opt for the cheaper product, feelinggood about having saved money. This type of mind-set is certainly understandable, but it can often leadto disappointment. We buy the wrong type of paint for our kitchen and find it is not easy to apply, or the coverageispoor. The fact is, more than ever in the paint market, quality counts. The market is changing fast with many exciting new products on offer. Paints are becoming more sophisticated, containing new innovative technology. Knowing which paint is right for your job is critical. Even understandingalittle about what goes into agood paint will help.Asa rule of thumb, a high-quality paint invariably offers the best value. For interiors, quality paints resist stains, are washable and easy to keep clean, they go on smoothly and evenly, tend to cover better and are more durable. For exteriors, they go on smoothly and evenly, tend to cover better, resist crackingand flaking, deter dirt pick-up and resist mould growth. They keep colour for longer, adhere better to the surface and are more durable. In addition, many high-quality paints are made with state-of-the-art, water-borne, solvent-free acrylic polymers. They give off little odour and dry more quickly, so you can get your room back in use sooner rather thanlater. Details: www.masterpainters.com.au 4A/5 Wenban Pl.
