Choosing the Right Paint

Klappenberger & Son is more than just an interior Columbus painting contractor.  We also know the manufacturer’s products inside and out.  We have over 60 different interior paints that we analyze, compare, and pass the results on to you.  Here are a few samples of videos and blogs.  For a complete list, visit our blog page.

Unless expressly noted, each paint Klappenberger & Son review covers the following topics:

  • Coverage
  • Workability
  • Washability
  • Durability
  • Self-Priming
  • Self-Leveling 

Due to the harsh weather conditions in the Columbus Metro area, we can suggest paints such as Ben Moore with Gennex Color Technology that is fade-resistant.  

Is the most versatile eggshell on the market.

We Can Help Suggest the Right Paint

As a professional Columbus Ohio painting contractor, we know it is not a one-size-fits-all solution for which paint is the best for you.  Many painting contractors use the same paint for every job because they are comfortable — that’s understandable but not necessarily good for you, the customer.

Scenario #1 

If you are selling the home, an interior painting contractor should recommend a paint that:

  • Hides imperfections 
  • Covers well (reduce the number of coats applied)
  • Touches-up well
  • Is inexpensive


Scenario #2

The family just moved in, and they have young kids and a big dog.  For this family, I would suggest:

  • Good coverage
  • Washability
  • Durability
  • Touches -up
Most painting contractors in Katy TX do not do free color consulation . Klappenberger & Son does

Picking The Right Sheen

Some quick thoughts on sheen

Sheen is graded on a reflectivity scale of 1-100. 

A reflectivity of 1 would be a chalkboard, and 100 would be a mirror.

The highest reflectivity I have found is Fine Paints Of Europe Holland Lac Gloss Oil.  It has a reflectivity of 92!

Most high gloss paints have a reflective value in the mid-80s.  


From Flat to High Gloss

There are five common sheens, from flat to gloss.  I wrote a blog that quickly breaks down.  Here are the cliff notes. 

Flat and Matte sheen -has a reflective value from 1-5.   Flat paints hide imperfections and are best for ceilings and some walls.  Some flat paints have poor washability but not all.  Premium paints like Aura, Dynasty, Marquee, UltraLast and Emerald Urethane, and C2  all have excellent washability.  Where to use: ceilings and walls.  

Eggshell sheen -I have yet to find an eggshell paint that does not have excellent washability.  However, few eggshell paints touch up.  Meaning if for any reason, you have to touch up the wall, you will most likely have to paint the entire wall.  Where to use: closets, smooth walls, hallways, bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and pig pens bedroom.

Satin Sheen -if your kitchen cabinets still have the factory finish, it is likely a satin finish.  Satin is also commonly used for furniture.  Great washability, poor touch-up.  Where to use:  closets, shelving, kitchen cabinets, bookcases.

Semi-Gloss – standard on trim, not used on walls as much as it once was.  

Gloss – when you get something that you want people to see.  High Gloss catches your attention.  Even if it is put on a ceiling.
