I would love to hear what factors you consider while getting your house painted. When it comes to choosing what paint, the options narrow down to the big three in the Indian market: Asian Paints, Nerolac and Berger. All of them offer a comprehensive painting solution unlike before when you had to hire a independent contractor. The downside was the risk the work will ever get completed to your liking, and if it did within the time frame.
Thanks to the Surprise your Spouse home makeover event, I had an alright experience with Asian Paints. But, this time around, I decided to get a quote from all the three and finally decided on Asian. As you can see, the most responsive was Nerolac in giving a quote while it was a cat and mouse chase with Asian Paints.
