Repainting the house is a tricky business. Some people rely on painting companies to do the job for them. Hiring the house painting service is also costly. But in case you are planning to paint it by yourself, you might want to consider some basics;
We have various types of paints today, some giving different surface finishes and others are designed for a particular application. Choosing the correct one may appear confusing at first. Once you have projected which the theme you would like to paint your house and sorted out which job and what finishes you want the choices might be easy.
You have two bases of the house:
- Solvent – based (oil or alkyd)
- Water based (latex)
The oil-based paints dry slow usually they take up to 24 hours. The cleanup for an oil-based paint is turpentine or paint thinner. The Latex paints advantage is that it dries so fast, though it does not desirable in hot weather or direct sunshine. For the Latex paints requires just soap and water. So, if you are planning to paint the inside of the house, it is recommended to use the water-based paint. The solvent-based paints are suggested for painting the exterior of the house.
We have types of paints that either solvent based or water based that produces different finishes that is measured by its sheen factor. The word sheen is used to describe the degree of the light reflection the paint has. The lesser sheen for an interior or exterior paint means it has lesser stain resistance.
