Salt Lake City, Utah Lacquer Paint expertS

Lacquer is a liquid made of shellac dissolved in alcohol that dries to form a very hard, smooth, protective coating on surfaces like wood and metal. When applied correctly, the results can be spectacular. When not? It takes a lot to correct a lacquer paint job gone wrong. We’re Utah’s expert in lacquer paint application. Here’s why you might choose lacquer paint:

Wear resistance: Lacquer paint has a hard-shell consistency that resists wear and tear, making it an ideal choice for high-traffic areas in your home, such as entryways and hallways.

Moisture resistance: Bathrooms, laundry rooms and other humid spaces can also benefit from lacquer paint, thanks to its high moisture resistance.

Low maintenance: Lacquer paint is easy to wipe down. It resists dirt, dust and other contaminants, resulting in low-maintenance surfaces that are easy to clean.
