Armstead Trade Paint is one of the most well-known and respected brands within trades circles across the country and is famous for its reliable quality and durability.

With various ranges and finishes available such as; contract matt, textured and smooth masonry paints, sheens, silks, undercoats as well as high gloss to name a few, you can see why Armstead are so often the go-to paint of professional decorators.

Here, we summarise our top five benefits to using the brand and certain products that stand out to us.

1. Affordability of Armstead Contract Matt for Big Projects

This option is a great one for commercial jobs rather than domestic ones. Firstly, it comes in generous 15 litre tubs and secondly, it is priced super competitively. Armstead advertise this product as ideal for high traffic areas such as offices or schools. This is understandable as the product is quick drying so doesn’t disrupt the surrounding environment for too long, and it’s also wipeable so stays looking fresh for longer. On that next job you’re quoting, keep this one in mind, it’s a gem.

2. Durability and Coverage of Armstead Vinyl Silk

This product is fantastic for making a space appear larger than it is with its light reflecting properties. Save the stress of buying a different paint for walls and ceilings and instead buy this to do both jobs! With the usual tough wearing finish that Armstead offer on all of their products this option is wipeable and resists the scuffs of daily life whilst keeping its opacity and coverage intact.

3. Ease of Application of the Armstead Quick Drying Gloss

Glossing is a time consuming, often painful job that no one wants to be doing too regularly, so choose a quality product first time to ensure the finish lasts. This little pot is magic as it’s not a sticky formula and doesn’t yellow whatsoever, unlike many of its competitors. As the name suggests, it is also quick dry so minimises the risk of those annoying tacky stains that impatient customers sometimes encounter. Another typical multipurpose product, this one can be used internally or externally on both wood and metal services so is a great pot to have in stock.

4. Quality of the Armstead Undercoat

You might see a common theme appearing with all of our favourite picks, they are all staples that don’t compromise on quality but can be used in many different scenarios. This undercoat, for example, is a great first step in interior and exterior wood and metal as well as on masonry that has the relevant primer. You can buy this in three different sizes too, giving you flexibility depending on the size of the project, so no need to unnecessarily tie up cash in unused product.

5. Next Day Delivery or Click and Collect Options
