It’s nice to do projects on a budget, but there are certain things you shouldn’t skimp on the quality. Paint brushes are one of those. While cheap paint brushes will get the job done, they certainly won’t give your project a professional-looking paint job. Here are three reasons you should always use high quality premium paint brushes.
Cheap brushes lose bristles.
Cheap paint brushes tend to lose bristles, and those bristles can end up in the paint on your project. Once you try to get the bristles out of the paint, you mess up the paint job and may possibly have to do that area over again. You’ll waste time and money.
Cheap brushes can fall apart.
Cheap paint brushes are cheap for a reason. They aren’t manufactured as well as high quality paint brushes. These brushes can literally fall apart rendering them useless. In the end, you’d end up buying so many cheap brushes that you could have just gotten a high quality one to begin with.
Cheap brushes don’t last.
Cheap brushes may be good for one or two uses but you can get a lot more uses from high-quality brushes. In the end, they pay for themselves.
If you’re only planning to use your paint brushes once for a simple home project, then maybe you can get away with cheap ones if you don’t mind an unprofessional-looking paint job. However, if you wan’t a paint job that looks good or you’re planning to use the brushes often, do yourself a favor and choose high quality brushes the first time around.
