Why Use Non-Voc Paints? By House Painter in Old Saybrook Ct

It used to be years ago that the homeowner had no choice when it came to what was in their house paint except for finishes, color and if it’s oil or latex base.  But with time there have been great strides in offering healthier choices!

Paints and finishes release low level toxic emissions for many years after the paint dries!  This comes from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s)  which were put into the paint to ensure good quality paint.  We have created this blog “Why Use Non-Voc Paints? By House Painter in Old Saybrook Ct ” to give you a little information about this so you can make an informed decision next time you buy paints.

What are Volatile Organic Compounds?  They are in the house paints that house painters use unless you ask for NON-VOC PAINT OR O-VOC PAINTS They are a large group of carbon based chemicals that easily evaporate at room temperature.  VOC’s are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids from an array of chemicals, some of which can cause short term or long term health effects. They are not only found in house paint but in everything from cleaning products to hobby products.    Some symptoms are nose and throat irritation, headache, dizziness, fatigue.. and many more symptoms which you can experience one or more of.

Most large painting companies now offer low or no VOC paint, we recommend No VOC paint.  Our favorite is Benjamin Moore’s Natura.  These paints are very high quality, and they last a long time.  The cost is not much more if at all then regular paint.

So next time you are painting or you hire a professional house painter to paint, be sure to ask about and insist on a NO VOC paint!

If You Are Buying Or Selling Your Home You Should Paint It Branford Ct

It’s so important to make sure your home is at its best if you are thinking of selling it!  That’s why we created this article If You Are Buying Or Selling Your Home You Should Paint It Branford Ct .

If you are selling your home, you want it to look its best and get the most money you can when you sell!  Painting is a great way to do this!  It’s one of the best investments!  Think about it, if you were buying a car and you went to the lot and saw all these cars, and there was one that was dirty and dingy, would you consider getting inside of it and going for a test ride?  You probably would not!  Why would you want to?  If the exterior looks bad, that shows that proper maintenance was not done, and if  they didn’t maintain the outside, why would that make you think they properly maintained the inside??

If you are a buyer, and you find the perfect home but you want to change some colors inside or perhaps it needs freshening up, the perfect time to do it is before you move in!  When a painting contractor paints the inside of your home with all your valuable posessions in it, it takes more time to cover things up and carefully work around your stuff, so, it can take longer and involve more work, which means it costs the painter more money.  If a painter has an empty home to paint, he doesn’t have to cover up your furniture and can work quicker, which allows for a better price to you! It’s a win/win for both of you!

If you have any questions or need some painting advice, please feel free to call us! Even if you are not hiring us, we are happy to provide you with professional advice!

I hope this article is helpful to you!

How To Paint A Garage Floor Guilford Ct

Garage floors take a beating, but they don’t have to look like they do! If your garage floor is stained with grease, dirt and rust, painting it can give the floor and the garage a new fresh look! You can choose from a wide range of colors, but if you work inside your garage alot, you might want to consider a lighter toned color that would reflect light.  You can also add colorful specs to the floor!

A latex base paint is good, or you can use a one step or two step epoxy paint system for garage floors.  Sherwin Williams and Rings End both carry great products for garage floors as well as other main paint stores.

When you do choose the brand, be sure to pay close attention to the instructions and in particular the temperature range the floor must be.  The floor temperature and temperature in the air is not the same thing, usually when the paint fails it’s because it was to humid or cold.

Check the floor surface, if there are cracks or holes be sure to fill the cracks and holes with concrete patch.  If your garage floor gets wet alot, treat with  a concrete water proofer before painting, do not use a waterproofer if you are using epoxy on the floor.

Next you need to clean the floor, if there is grease stains use a de-greaser and brush and thoroughly clean the floor, you can cut down on elbow grease by renting a floor maintainer machine.  Make sure the floor is clean of any grease or sealers of any kind.

Next you are ready to apply the expoxy kit or paint.  Be sure to read the instructions carefully.  With the epoxy kit, you have about two hours to apply, so map out beforehand how you want to go about it.  Make sure the weather outside is not wet or humid.  You will need a two to three day drying time and then another two to three days before you put your car in the garage!

I hope this article How To Paint A Garage Floor Guilford Ct helped!

If you need any other help or advice please feel free to call us or set up an appointment for a free professional evaluation and estimate.
