But before we get to that aspect, let’s understand the different types of paints for the exteriors and interiors of your home.
Made of water, lime chalks and colouring pigments, this a higher-grade whitewashing material. It can be a good choice for a quick repainting of your storage room, garage, laundry room and other such spaces where you might not want emulsion paint. Distemper paint is durable, easily applicable, and comes in many appealing colours. Acrylic distempers can offer a smooth matte effect. However, distemper paint is less durable than emulsion. So, if you’re looking for both durability and fine texture, consider emulsion paint.
Emulsion paints are popular for various designer finishes and colour textures inside the home. They are a good choice for exterior walls as well. In most of these paints, water is the primary medium, along with pigment, additives and binders. They are durable and can give your walls a glamorous finish. For instance, Berger Silk Glamor is an interior house paint that has superior washability and can also provide unique metallic shimmer effects to the walls. It is a great option if you love to host dinner parties. It is also perfect for homes with kids and/or pets.
For your exterior surfaces, you will need something that can withstand the weather elements, apart from providing a fantastic finish. Berger WeatherCoat Long Life Flexo, for instance, has silicone additives to protect your exteriors against heavy rain. It also has dust-resistant and anti-microbial properties. Plus, it offers a superior sheen.
If you need oil paint for walls that form a hard shell and offer sturdy protection, enamel paint is your solution. This solvent-based paint dries up to form a vitreous or glass-like shell. You might be recommended this paint by experts for windows, grills, masonry surfaces, and appliance finish touch-ups. It can last for years and still retain their glossy finish. It also dries faster than latex-based paint.
Among the different types of wall paint that offer sturdiness and hardness, cement-based paints are very popular. They can be applied on brickwork or concrete, to prevent dirt accumulation and water penetration. They can be the best paint for exterior walls, although cement paints can be used on ceilings and bathrooms too. Cement paint might also be recommended for porous surfaces.
Acrylic paint is made of pigment particles in an acrylic polymer emulsion. Water is the vehicle for water-based acrylic paint, which is mixed with a binder that keeps the pigment in place when the paint dries. Acrylic paints are known for their high flexibility and adhesion to any type of surface. They work for different types of painting styles and techniques, from traditional to experimental applications.
Berger Bison Acrylic Emulsion offers a smooth matte finish and has excellent anti-fading properties. It is twice as durable as distemper and is available in 10,000 different types of colours.
You can create extraordinary effects on your exterior walls with texture paints. Give them a natural stone look or 3D effect to make your home stand out in the neighbourhood. Not only can you bring in an artistic touch to your exteriors, but you can also make them weatherproof and protect them against fungal growth with such paint.
