One of the biggest dilemmas of people is choosing the most appropriate and best brand of house paint. Frustration and confusion are always present when you are standing in the paint aisle of your local supermarket, especially for amateur household painters.
Choosing from the many types and brands of house paint for your household project can be a mysterious and fun learning experience. Understanding the quality of paints and its proper uses is critical in a successful do-it-yourself household painting experience.
There are basically two kinds of paint: oil based and water based.
Water based paint has some advantages over oil based paints. One advantage of water based paint is it dries faster. Plus, it is effortless to clean off than oil based paint, and water based paint does not fill up the room with a strong smell.
However, if the surface you are planning to paint has been previously painted with oil based paint, then we advise that you should still use oil based paint in repainting the walls.
Here are some of the other common house paints:
Primer - is the basic coating place on materials before painting. A primer can be either oil based or water based. This product also strengthens and adds extra defence for the material being painted.
Enamel – an oil based paint used for outdoor coating surfaces. This paint is characterised as durable and hard. Windows and doors are the usual subject of this paint.
Acrylic – Acrylic Latex, Acrylic Enamel or Acrylic Latex Enamel are the different types of acrylic paint. This paint can become water resistant when dry and is the other term of water based house paint.
You can also find paints with interior and exterior labels on it. Experience household painters uses water based paint on the interior part of the home. On the other hand, every painting company will advise home owners to use oil based paints in painting the exterior parts of their houses.
There are more varieties of oil based and water based paints. Perth House Painters suggests home owners to carefully investigate the household to determine what type of paint is needed.
