What are the best paints for your Dunwoody home?
Types of exterior house paints
Exterior house paints are classified into very many categories. The two most common categories are based on;
a. Binding substance i.e. oil or water
The main difference between oil-based and water-based paints lies in the binding substance bonding the paint pigments. As the name suggests, oil based paints have oil as the binding substance while water based paints has water as the binding substance. Depending on personal tastes and preferences, a homeowner can opt for oil-based paints, water-based paints or both. Generally, oil-based paints are more durable but they take longer to dry and cleanup. On the other hand, water-based paints don’t last as long as oil based paints. They however dry faster and are easier to clean-up.
b. Gloss level
Exterior home paints are also commonly classified according to the gloss level i.e. the level at which the paint dries. There are 4 main gloss levels namely; flat finish, satin finish, semi-gloss or high-gloss. The gloss level lets you know how the exterior surface will look like after painting. The gloss level also provides useful hints on the ease of cleaning.
Flat paints offer a lusterless finish which hides wall imperfections because they reflect the least amount of light. Flat paints are however prone to stains. Satin paints are more stain resistance. Semi-gloss paints offer excellent stain resistance and a perfect shiny appearance. High-gloss paints offer the best stain resistance and easiest cleanup although they highlight wall imperfections more because they reflect plenty of light.
Other paint types
