While the *aesthetic* (Beauty) of a building Project is usually foremost when it comes to painting, juxtaposing it with the *function*(use) of each space within and outside the Building would help in deciding which type of Paint and what colour would best serve.
So when do one use an emulsion, textured, satin or the other kinds of paints?
Emulsion Paints: this kind of paints are the commonest. They usually give Matt of flat finish. In other words, they do not have glossy reflection. Emulsion can be used for both screeded and unscreeded walls. They can also be applied both internally and externally.
Some of the benefits of using Emulsion for your walls include:
– Protects your wall from the elements of weather.
-The imperfections on an unscreeded or poorly screeded wall might not be too cospicous
– Reduces the possibility of rodents and lizards climbing your external walls if the the plastering was smooth.
– Can be easily repainted or maintained.
– Does not scratch your skin like the textured paints
Emulsion painted walls can not be scrub with sponge and water when stained.
NB: A good emulsion painted wall would neither fade nor wash-off over time.
