This week on the Three Brothers Painting blog, we thought we’d put together a list of the most popular blogs we’ve written since we started our blog. If you’re a newcomer, these are some of the most common questions and concerns we receive when coming to paint someone’s home for the first time. Here are some of the best of Three Brothers’ blog posts, in no particular order.
Low-VOC Paint Vs. Regular Paint – What’s the Difference? – The term VOC stands for volatile organic compounds. Defined, VOCs are unstable, carbon-containing compounds that readily vaporize into the air. As paint dries, these harmful VOCs are released into the air at high levels, causing air pollution and potential health issues. Enter low-VOC and no-VOC paints, which are now widely available and sold by most major paint manufacturers. In addition to healthier air indoors, low-VOC paints also release less gas into the atmosphere, decreasing their carbon footprint.
All About Paint: A Quick Guide to Finishes and Primer – “What kind of finish works best in this room?” is a question our painting contractors hear quite often. To help our customers in and around Roswell, GA figure out the best product for their rooms, here is a quick guide to the different kinds of finishes. There are four main types of paint finishes: Flat, Eggshell (also known as Satin), Semigloss and High-Gloss, all offering different benefits.
Good Fences (And Decks) Need Good Stain – Here in metro Atlanta, there are two types of wood that dominate outdoor wood construction: Pressure Treated Pine (P.T.P.) and Cedar. Both are rot and bug resistant. However, in order to maintain the appearance and durability of the wood, a stain is typically applied, especially for fences and decks made out of pressure-treated wood.
Turn Your Garage into a Showroom with Painted Floors– Spring is typically the time when homeowners get in the mood to clean out their garages and purge old stuff. For a number of men, their garage is their sanctuary, and they want to treat it as such. After cleaning out the junk, organizing the tools, and finding a place for everything, a stained, oily garage floor makes the area look unfinished. To finish off your garage, Three Brothers Painting recommends adding a colorful, shiny epoxy floor coating that will have you feeling like you’re driving into a showroom every time you pull into your driveway.
