Should I use latex or oil paint in my exterior painting Newark project?

Latex is more environment-friendly than the regular oil based paints. It is usually water based and does not emit any foul odor. On the other hand, oil-based paints emit fumes upon application. Also, latex finishes on an exterior painting project typically stay elastic for many years, while oil based paint would become brittle. If the surface of your exterior expands or contracts through the years, latex will just move with the surface, whereas oil paints will tend to crack. One of the advantages though of using oil paint is that it has finer and smoother finish. It will not show brush marks, unlike latex.

How long will my exterior painting Newark last?

The longevity of your exterior painting will depend on the wall substrate or siding that you use. Stucco, for example, will last longer as compared to wood that is prone to contraction and expansions. Generally, the exterior painting could last for up to 5 to 10 years.

How long before paint dries after application in Newark?

It depends. Latex normally dries faster than oil paint. You will just have to wait for a couple of hours for latex to dry. Oil paint, on the other hand, will need plenty of time to dry.
