Common myths in painting industry

Common myth in house painting industry #1: primer is unnecessary for all painting projects


Primer helps paint adhere better to surfaces, improves coverage, and can prevent stains or bleed-through, especially on bare surfaces or when covering dark colours.






Common myth in house painting industry #2: you only need one coat of paint for full coverage

Most painting projects require at least two coats of paint for a professional finish, especially when transitioning between colours or covering imperfections.


Common myth in house painting industry #3: anyone can paint a house, so hiring a professional is a waste of money

Professional painters have the expertise, tools, and experience to deliver high-quality results efficiently and effectively, saving time and potential costly mistakes.


Common myth in house painting industry #4: you can paint over mold or mildew without addressing the underlying issue

Painting over mold or mildew without proper treatment can lead to recurring problems and damage to the paint job. It's crucial to address and remediate the source of moisture before painting.


Common myth in house painting industry #5: paint colour will look the same on the wall as it does on the swatch

Paint colors can appear different based on lighting, surrounding colors, and surface texture. It's essential to test paint samples on the actual surface before committing to a color.


Common myth in house painting industry #6: Exterior painting can only be done in warm weather

While warmer temperatures can help paint dry faster, modern paint formulations allow for exterior painting in a wider range of temperatures, including cooler weather, as long as certain precautions are taken.


Common myth in house painting industry #7: DIY painting is always cheaper than hiring a professional

DIY painting requires purchasing supplies, tools, and often results in trial and error. In some cases, hiring a professional can be more cost-effective, especially for larger or more complex projects.


Understanding these myths can help you, as a homeowner, to make informed decisions when it comes to painting your property and ensure you achieve the best results possible.
