Does your living room, bedroom, kitchen, or bathroom need a facelift? You don’t need to spend tens of thousands of dollars on expensive remodeling. All you need is a fresh coat of paint. But before you head to your local, Frederick home improvement store, take a step back, take a deep breath, and consider the following:
- Consider hiring a professional painting contractor. This ensures, among other things, professional work. After all, if you want professional results, you have to hire a professional.
- Consider going green. Traditional painting materials and processes can have harmful effects on the environment. Green painting is the wave of the future, reducing environmental impact while still achieving exceptional aesthetics. That’s what we like to call a win-win!
What is Green Painting?
No, we aren’t talking about green the color. Instead, we are talking about green the concept. Green painting involves the use of eco-friendly paints that have very little impact on the environment. These paints do not contain the harmful chemicals found in traditional paint, chemicals that release low level toxic emissions into the air. Additional benefits of eco-friendly paints include:
Now for the big question; “Will I pay more for eco-friendly paint?” The answer: no! It’s a common misconception that “Going Green” is a costly endeavor. Because of the increasing prominence of green initiatives, the once lopsided price difference between traditional paints and eco-friendly paints is no more. So why would you settle for anything but a green painting contractor?
