Even if you’re an historically conscious homeowner, you’re not required to grind pigments in a paint milor boil linseed oil in a copper cauldron.
The marketplace now has many hues that replicate popular colors from the eighteenth, nineteenth, and early twentieth century. That means old house owners can pay due regard to the historic character of their homes while using convenient water-based paints that offer easy clean-up and shorter drying times. Many of these products are also more environmentally friendly, as low- or no-VOC paints emit fewer volatile organic compounds.
The availability of appropriate paint options can only bode well for everyone passionate about conserving architectural heritage. At the very least, it can make the jobs of Waterloo and Kitchener painting companies and property restorers like CertaPro less intimidating—though not any less important.
