If you embrace DIY during home improvement, you must have thought of buying a paint sprayer. If you have ever bought a paint sprayer, you will agree with me that it is a daunting task. There are many stores selling paint equipment, but to get the best results, you should invest time and money during the purchase. If you thought that you would walk in a store and pick the biggest and colorful sprayer, you are mistaken. There is more to it.
The buying process of a sprayer should happen in two stages, the elimination and selection. During the elimination stage, you should be looking for reasons not to buy particular sprayers. By the end of the process, you should have a list of brands you want to choose from after which selection stage kicks in. During selection, you should look at the features of each sprayer and come up with reasons why you should buy it. You should walk home with the product with the most desirable features.
Below are factors to consider in the selection of a paint sprayer. Read on.
What is your budget? How much are you willing to spend on the paint sprayer? I advise people to double the amount they are willing to pay, to set the upper limit. If a product costs more than the doubled figure, eliminate it from your list. Note that, it is essential to stick to your budget and get value for your money during any purchase.
Some people believe that products manufactured in specific regions are of better quality. Most of the time, products made overseas are of better quality and cheaper. However, if you cannot break the trust, you have for products made in the USA, and you are ready to pay for the extra cost, eliminate overseas brands from your list.
Customers will always give positive reviews for quality products. If a product has a few positive reviews and negative ratings, eliminate them from your list. Also, scan the reviews to ensure that they are authentic. Some companies hire people to write positive reviews about their products and the information there can be misleading. PaintedZone.com is among the best reviewed websites online.
If you are aware of the material you are going to spray, eliminate brands that are not compatible. If for instance, you want to spray latex paint, remove from your list sprayers which do not work with latex. This information can be found on the manual or still you can talk to the salesperson.
