We primarily use latex paint. Today’s modern latex paints are the best choice for typical homeowner applications. Latex paints offer quick dry times, a wider range of colors, better mildew resistance, better fade resistance, and are environmentally responsible. The problem with solvent oil based paints is pollution. A gallon of solvent-based paint contains about 2 quarts of mineral spirits. These solvents evaporate into the air as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as the paint dries. Not only does it smell bad but it is unhealthy for you and bad for the environment. The bottom line is this: the technology has shifted so dramatically that your best choice in most situations will be latex paint. Eventually, latex may become your only choice.
