Oil based paint or Water based paint?
What are the main reasons for choosing either oil based paint or water based paint?
Water based paints are durable, don't have much odour and can be easily cleaned up with water. They also resist yellowing and have a much better mildew resistance than oil based paints. Therefore it is advisable to use water based paints more in environments which are more prone to mildew, such as bathrooms.
Oil based paints are more durable in the long run, but have a stronger odour when applying it. They also require mineral turpentine to clean your brushes rather than water. Oil based paints tend to have a higher gloss finish than water based paints and take longer to dry.
The most important point of all, when wanting to paint your home or any part of your property, would be to obtain a quote from a professional painting company. You may pay as slightly extra in the short term, will pay itself back in the long term, by simply obtaining professional advice upfront."
