How you you choose the right type of paint for your project?

It’s easy to be intimidated by the towering shelves of paint cans at your local home improvement store. “Do I need primer? Why is that paint flat? Why are there fourteen different types of white?” may be some questions that come to mind.

The first step is choosing interior or exterior paint. That part, at least, is straight forward.

Interior paint is formulated to withstand scrubbing, be easy to touch up, and give really good coverage. The details matter most inside your house, so it’s important to choose high-quality interior paint that will last the longest amount of time. Exterior paint is made with ingredients that protect your home from UV rays, moisture, and mold.

Sherwin Williams has a great guide that matches types of paint to various surfaces. It’s definitely important to pay attention to surface type when choosing your paint.
