Everyone enjoys the look of a freshly painted room, but the time and effort it takes to achieve the final result are less enjoyable. New Yorkers appreciate convenience and efficiency; an all-in-one paint checks both boxes. Let’s discuss the best options if you’re considering using an all-in-one paint in NYC.

Comparing All-in-One Paint with Standard Formulas

All paint has the same end goal – adding color to a surface. Primer and standard paint come together to give exceptional, durable coverage, but you cannot use one without the other. If you apply regular paint to a surface without primer, it will start to crack and peel within a few months. The all-in-one formula bridges the gap between traditional paint and primer. They adhere better and provide more coverage than standard paint alone but may not deliver the results you get with a separate paint and primer.

The Benefits of Benjamin Moore ADVANCE® in NYC

An all-in-one formula may not be the best choice when working with raw surfaces like new drywall or unfinished wood. A surface that has never been painted is porous and will absorb paint, meaning you must apply several coats for even coverage. Using a primer first will conceal minor imperfections to give the paint a smooth finish. Benjamin Moore ADVANCE® Interior Paint cures to a hard, furniture-quality finish and is an excellent choice for doors, trim, and cabinetry. Doors and trim often stand out from the rest of a room, so they must have a flawless paint job.
