Types of Exterior Paint Used at Green Painting Phoenix

Unlike interior painting, Phoenix exterior house painting is designed to maintain its color, to resist mildew and mold growth and to stand up to harsh weather. Exterior house paints are either latex-based or oil-based. Latex is a generic term used for all non-oil-based paints, most of which feature a water base.

Latex paints provide the longest lasting finish and have a high retention rate when applied with glossy sheens. Water-based paints for exterior painting in Phoenix tend to hold up longer than oil-based paints and can be applied in temperatures as cold as 35 degrees.

They are also cleaner for the environment and have low VOC emission levels. Oil-based paints work best for distressed surfaces such as weathered wood or rusty metal when doing Phoenix exterior house painting. However, oil-based paints tend to take on a yellowish hue over time and will become brittle and crack.

Oil paints feature a high level of adhesiveness and are extremely stain-resistant. While you can use oil paints for the main surface of your home, it is best to use it for trim, as it has a tendency to fade.

Exterior Painting Finishes

As with interior painting, Phoenix exterior house painting sheens will depend on what you’re trying to achieve.

Flat/matte

Flat/matte finishes soften the appearance of a surface and are excellent for hiding blemishes and other imperfections. These are great options for siding.

Satin/Eggshell

Satin and eggshell finishes feature a slight glossiness and offer similar benefits as a flat or matte finish. Satin finishing is easier to maintain than matte and is a good choice for trim, window frames, shutters and surfaces that require frequent cleanings.

Gloss

Glossy finishes are extremely durable and are also ideal for areas that require regular cleaning. However, because gloss finishes are somewhat reflective, they have a tendency to highlight imperfections on the surface being painted. We would recommend that you use a glossy finish on doors (garage and house), decorative metal surfaces (lamp posts, trim) or functional metal surfaces (gutters, downspouts, railings, gates).

High-gloss

High-gloss finishes are extremely durable and provide a rich, smooth luster. They will bring out any imperfections even more strongly than regular gloss finishes, so we would suggest using it only on near-perfect surfaces. This finish is a great option for areas that require frequent cleanings and high-traffic areas such as main entry doors. It’s also good for accent trim and other decorative fixtures.

A good paint job can only be done by someone who has invested time in perfecting this art. Careful preparation is required to ensure that everything is done right. Painting an entire home can take weeks to accomplish on your own and may even eat up your entire summer. The work does not stop there. A professional touch is required to apply that final top coat in a way that looks good. Sharp eyes are needed, along with steady hands and plenty of practice in climbing ladders and working from heights.
