Some interior painting projects are pretty straightforward – changing the color of the walls in a well-maintained bedroom, for example. But they’re not all that way.
A friend recently re-painted his laundry room from top to bottom. In the process, he encountered metal, wood and vinyl doors, metal hinges, wallboard and wood trim, plus some minor water and rust stains. To simplify the project, and save some money too, he wisely used high quality paint made with 100% acrylic binder on all the surfaces, getting great results throughout the room. We can all learn from his example.
More so than any other coating, top quality paint made with 100% acrylic binder is the ideal product to use when a paint job involves multiple surfaces. That’s because these paints have superior adhesion, even to slick material like vinyl and metal. Good adhesion means that these paints are less likely to chip, peel or otherwise fail wherever they are applied. Bottom line: They produce a very durable, long-lasting paint job.
What’s also important is that a project done with top quality 100% acrylic paint will continue to look great for years to come, color-wise. The reason: These coatings have better color retention that other types of paint, and better stain resistance, too. So, if you’re a stickler about getting – and maintaining — just the right tint or shade when you paint, you’ll get some long-term color “insurance”, in effect, by using 100% acrylic paint.
And if, like my friend, you see that your walls and other surfaces have minor stains, you have still another reason to favor top quality 100% acrylic paints: Many of these coatings function as both primer and paint, affording more stain coverage than competing products. That can be a huge time- and money-saver, since you may to apply fewer coats and purchase only one, rather than two or more, separate products.
So, when you run up against a multi-faceted interior paint job that presents a variety of surfaces and other challenges, don’t be put off. Do what my friend did and simplify your paint project by turning to a high-end 100% acrylic paint. You’ll be glad you did.
