SAM's Painting stands for craftsmanship that lasts.
We don’t cut corners on the prep work needed for an outstanding interior or exterior painting job. And we don’t cut corners on paint quality. We are proud to use and recommend premium paints, including Sherwin-Williams.
In the glaring Florida sun, a quality exterior paint job can last seven years or more. A budget job will usually go chalky or fade within a couple of years. Exteriors should always be cleaned and prepped before painting. Primer and two coats of premium paint are recommended for color changes.
On the interior, the failure to prep surfaces properly will result in peeling paint and uneven coverage. It won’t be noticeable while the paint is wet, but you will see the difference a few weeks after it dries. Tiny pinholes and blotchy areas are the hallmarks of any inferior paint job.
How budget painters cut costs
Walls repairs are one way budget painters cut corners on costs. No painter can be expected to do major structural repairs. But a craftsman will fill nail holes, smooth rough areas, tape and fill damaged corners, and block stains with a special primer.
Budget painters will use one coat of paint or, worse, spray on paint. This is fast and easy, but it just doesn’t last. Two coats of paint can cost up to 60% more than one coat of the same brand. Detail work can also add to the cost; cutting in trim and woodwork is a skill best left to a practiced hand. But the results are sharp-looking and crisp.
Paint quality is another area where budget painters save money. A premium paint will have more pigment and more resin that a hardware store brand. This means better coverage and longer lasting color. Painters are not above pouring an inferior brand into a premium brand five-gallon bucket. Some painters go so far as to water down paint, which will result in premature cracking and flaking.
