There is a Green revolution going on. People are demanding less toxins and pollutants in their products. We are always on the lookout for the best quality paints with the least harmful chemicals.
No matter which colors and finishes you decide on, water-based Latex paints are far better for the environment and our health than oil-based paints or primer. Primer may be necessary when painting over a dark color or when the surface is new. We usually use Latex paints that dry between 1-6 hours with low fumes and less cracking than high-odor oil-based paints which may take 24 hours or more to dry. For those allergic to latex, Latex paints do not actually contain any latex, strange as this may sound.
Some people may be sensitive to chemicals present in most paints. VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) are the main culprit, producing the strongest fumes. Fortunately, most contemporary Latex paints are low-VOC and for those with chemical concerns, no-VOC paints may also be used. High-quality paint, when applied correctly, lasts much longer. We take care to properly prepare surfaces so that you will be able to enjoy your fresh, new walls for years to come.
