There is nothing more expensive than cheap paint!
Long life paint will usually last 10-15 years. Paints from Holland, Eurolux waterborne paint, Hollandlac oil paint, and Eco - a hybrid an oil resin with water clean up - are head and shoulders above the most expensive domestic paint which can cost $51.00 per gallon, and are the world leaders in paint quality. These paints are scrubbable and retain their rich look because quality expectations are very high in Holland and Europe. Average residency in Europe is over 15 years, where average residency in the United States is less than 5 years and we repaint with each move. Paints from Holland are made with expensive resins and rich, finely ground pigments. These paints usually cost between $85 and $97.00 per gallon.
Ford and Chevy vehicles are painted with $300.00 per gallon paint. We wash our cars and don't repaint them every 5 years. We have put a man on the moon, developed super computers, performed organ transplants, yet there is a paint that is truly scrubbable and looks freshly painted after 4 years...Why aren't we investing in our properties with it? Since labor is usually 80% of the cost of a paint project, using Dutch paint will add 20% to the cost. A $2000.00 paint project will cost $2400.00, and a $5000.00 will cost $6000.00. To faux finish a room will cost more than 20% usually. Holland paints do not cut quality to cut cost.
Quality is consistent and reliable. Holland paints are a great alternative for clients that demand beautiful, scrubbable finishes. When using Dutch paint inside, priming walls might be necessary if the surface was previously painted with "construction paint". Though Dutch paint looks great on ceilings it's not necessary to use for those type of projects.

What People Say About Us
We had our first floor painted by Bill and he did a fantastic job, he was very knowledgeable and helped us make the right choices in our paint selections. Bill was a pleasure to work with and all his years in the painting industry sure showed at the end of our project.
Bill is awesome. I have used him for 30 plus years and have been happy with every project he has done. I have thrown some pretty challenging things at him and he has never disappointed me. He solved problems like continuous pealing of paint out side to removing a popcorn ceiling leaving a perfect looking ceiling. The only down side for me is he moved to Arkansas and now I have to wait for his return to visit his family to get my job done right. Bill does the job right the first time.
Excellent painter for our brick/exterior paint job! Will be re-hiring him for interior paint as well.
