It sounds like something any homeowner looking to paint their home would want to use: A lifetime warranty paint.
Use a brand of paint with that warranty and you'll never have to paint your home again, right?
Well, that's not always the case.
There are typically a few caveats to such a warranty, and you may have already thought of some of them:
Understanding the limitations of a lifetime paint warranty provides insight into what makes a paint job last, and to what type of paint the warranty applies.
Typically paint manufacturers provide lifetime warranties on higher-quality paints meant to be applied with a thick coat. A thicker coat of paint will typically last longer, but also requires more care and attention to apply.
Applying a high-end paint typically takes longer to apply and requires 15% more paint, but can last 25% to 30% longer.
Also, to ensure the warranty applies removing the old coat of paint and any potential surface problems, such as oil, smoke or water damage. If those careful prep steps are taken all paints will last longer, not just lifetime-warranty paints.
