Have you ever seen a house where your immediate thought was, “It would’ve looked better in another color”?
Or maybe it’s your own home that needs repainting and you’re excited to go paint shopping, but can’t quite choose because there are just so many options.
Don’t worry. We’ve done the hard bit when it comes to figuring out the best paint brand. Here, we’ll discuss the top 3 paint brands to help you narrow down your choices and pick the best one for your needs.
Best for Budget-Conscious Consumers: Glidden Premium
We pick Glidden Premium as the best paint brand if you’re sticking to a budget. Plus, it’s environmentally friendly, as it has zero VOCs (volatile organic compounds).
Another good thing about this paint brand is that it’s easily available at Home Depot. It also doesn’t fade easily and offers good stain resistance. Dry time is fast and it’s resistant to molds and mildew, as well, making it a quality product at a fair price.
Best Paint Brand If You Don’t Mind the Cost: Benjamin Moore Aura
The one con with Glidden Premium paints is fair coverage. That means you’ll need more paint if you want maximum hiding property. Hiding, by the way, is the ability of the paint to hide dark colors with just one coat.
With Benjamin Moore Aura, that’s not going to be an issue. If you want a paint that applies smoothly, has superior coverage and offers a beautiful finish, this is it.
But be prepared to pay for quality. Benjamin Moore Aura paints can easily drain your painting budget if you use it for large-scale projects.
If you’re okay with mixing and matching, use Glidden Premium for other areas of the home and Benjamin Moore Aura for special and small areas, such as the master bedroom.
Best Contractor-Grade Paint at a Decent Price: ProMar 200
In a previous post, we listed the things you should look for when hiring a painting contractor in Calgary. We mentioned that your initial step should be to find at least three painting contractors so you can compare rates.
During this process, you can also ask your candidates which paint brands they use. Most likely, some of them will mention Valspar Professional. That’s because it’s a professional product geared towards contractors and those who paint for a living.
Since it’s a thinner product, you’ll need a steady hand to apply it (not a problem if you’re a pro, of course). But if you’re a homeowner and you’re keen on trying this paint brand, it’s best to hire a contractor to get the job done right.
