Choosing the apt paint manufacturer out of the endless options available is not an easy task. This becomes even more difficult when you look at the options each manufacturer offers you. You can always compare the available options and make the right choice. Below mentioned are a few parameters which will come handy when you sit to choose amongst the paint companies.

Check for the green quotient: When getting your home walls painted your first priority would be the safety of your loved ones and the environment. Many paint manufacturers make use of toxic solvents in paints that make them severe health hazardous. Lead is an active ingredient used by a majority of paints providers in India and abroad in paints. Exposure to lead can cause irritation in the eyes, allergies and other serious health complications. This also is a threat to the environment, as a solution to this problem responsible paint manufacturers have started the concept of lead-free paints. These paints do not contain lead in any form. By making use of such paints you can be sure of giving your walls and the surroundings better protection. While looking out for paint companies do check if they produce lead-free paints.

Do a colour patch test on your home walls: Every paint company has its own shade card that will help you in choosing the colours you desire. However paint hues tend to differ when applied on different surfaces. For instance a light yellow shade would look different on paper when compared to on a wall. This is the reason it is best you get your selected sample paints applied over the walls that need to be painted in the form of a patch. Even the type of paint and its finish matters, a gloss effect is far away from a matt finish. One can understand this difference clearly with the help of such tests you can then settle for the paint that is apt for your walls.

Painting services: Often paint companies provide extra services along with their products. There are brands that will help you in finalizing the colour schemes for each of your home room that requires painting. While some will have painting experts that will get your home painting job done in the best way. This way instead of hunting for locally available contractors you can actually rely on your paint provider for such services. This would cost you slightly more but the guarantee and reliability factor that comes along with them is something an unknown contractor may not be able to offer.

Wall paints if not selected smartly can turn out to be a major problem for you, as a lot of time and efforts are involved in this job it would be tough to go back and start the job all over again. Therefore make smart paint choices.
