For the commercial paint contractor, the old adage is true, “Time is Money.” Imagine going into a paint supply store, spending an hour waiting for the employee in charge of the front desk to find their manager and ask where the supplies you desperately need to finish out the job are. Imagine at the end of that hour the anxiety that comes when they don’t have everything that you need or they’ve managed to mess up your order. When time is your money when what you make in an hour is entirely dependent on how well and how quickly you can finish a job, time matters.
There comes a time in every home owner’s life when you need to update your exterior. Finding the right paint finish is very important and can help to completely determine what the end product looks like. What we’ve noticed from industry standard exterior acrylic finishes is that they’re difficult to apply, they smell bad, and they’re not made to be low VOC and easily cleaned up. That’s because the big paint companies don’t mind if their consumers have to buy a few extra gallons and start over on the project because their paints aren’t user-friendly. The other thing that we noticed was that the durability from a lot of the big box guys wasn’t the greatest. You might get a few years out of the product before it began to fade or peel away altogether.
