Opt for Some Green Paint This Holiday Season

Nov 30, 2012

These days, when folks hear the word “green”, most often they think of eco-friendly, and not literally green walls. (Although, we love green walls, too!) More and more families are choosing Low or Zero-VOC options for their interior and exterior paint colors for a variety of reasons, because VOC’s  can cause headaches and nausea, trigger allergies or damage the liver, kidneys and central nervous system. Thankfully, because of the known effects of VOCs, there are plenty of low-VOC and zero-VOC paints available.

Low-VOC Paint Options 

Duration by Sherwin-Williams is naturally resistant to mildew and is perfect for households with children, because any stains (think markers, crayon, finger paint) wipe clean with a mild soap and water. Duration is available in matte, satin, and semi-gloss finishes.

Zero-VOC Paint Options

If you’re looking for paint with zero-VOCs, a product we highly recommend is Porter Paints’ Pure Performance line, which is also naturally resistant to mildew and easy to clean, making it a perfect choice for bathrooms and kitchens. As far as color options, their entire Voice of Color system is at your disposal, so you can choose from over 1,800 options.

We also recommend the Harmony collection from Sherwin Williams, a product that is virtually odor-free, resists mildew, and has a durable finish that withstands frequent scrubbings. The Harmony collection is a perfect choice for nurseries or kids’ rooms, or anywhere in home that you need a washable, durable finish. It’s also available as both a primer and a topcoat in eggshell, flat, and semi-gloss finishes.

Of course, these are just a few options from a wide range of eco-friendly painting products. If there is a particular paint you would like to use in your home, just let us know when we come to your home for an estimate, and we can figure out what works best for you.
