“Builder grade” is a term used to describe the lowest level, lowest quality, bare bones materials that builders often use to save money. Builder grade paint is designed with cost effectiveness in mind. It is the absolute lowest quality paint that is available for purchase. Builder grade paints are always a flat finish and often watered down so they spray on easier. New home builders tend to choose this application type for labor savings. Rollers and brushes take considerably longer to paint with than a spray gun and premium grade paints cost much more per gallon than builder grade paints.
Builder grade paint is known to not cover well. It will often rub off a wall when a homeowner tries to clean marks on the wall. It is known to be less durable. If you have ever purchased a home that has never been painted since it was built or even a new home, you likely know the issues with builder grade paint.
