Interior Paint Selection
Interior paint selections are as important as the applications itself. Using the best paint for each surface will not only be easier, it will last longer too. Here is a comparison of a few product lines that will dramatically increase your interior painting results. For residents in the Indianapolis Metro, contact Grants Painting for your Interior Painter.
- PPG Speedhide PVA – Like most PVA’s, it seals the surface great. Speedhide PVA also has phenomenal coverage even on raw drywall. PVA’s do dry with a slight shean so they dont help with dark colors.
- Seal Grip Acrylic Universal Primer – This is the best primer for most problems except marker and makeup. It’s a must if your topcoats are rich colors or a satin, semi-gloss, or full gloss paints.
Best Interior Wall Paints
- PPG High Hide – High Hide does exactly that, it covers small dings and minor imperfections. Very good mid-option paint.
- Benjamin Moore Aura- This is by far the most durable wall paint. In fact, the semi-gloss and gloss make a great trim and door paint.
Interior Ceiling Paints
- PPG Porter Ceiling Paint – This is the best ceiling paint for all situations unless there are extreme stains.
- Zinser 2-in1 Ceiling Paint – Although very expensive, this paint will cover stains that many other ceiling paints wont cover.
Interior Trim Paints
- PPG Silkin Touch – Silkin Touch makes a great trim paint that is very easy to work with.
- PPG Advantage 900 – Adv. 900 is more difficult to brush and roll but sprays out with ease and leaves a durable and beautiful interior trim.
- PPG Breakthrough – PPG Breakthrough is almost impossible to brush and roll. It is even a bit difficult to spray. However nothing will bond and form a more durable surface better than the Breakthrough.
