Green products

Part of our quality commitment is to use paints and stains that are not only durable, but also reduce the impact on the environment.  There are a variety of green standards, and so new compliant products are constantly becoming available.  Most products are categorized by low or zero VOC (volatile organic compounds) measured in grams per liter. 

  Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Is there zero VOC, exterior stain availlable?
My home was previously stained with a low VOC water-based stain. Do you have a water-based exterior stain? I've been told that I can only use a water based transparent stain over this coating.
Are zero VOC paints and stains as durable as low VOC paints and stains?
Can I request a hand-brushed exterior finish?

  Answers

question Is there zero VOC, exterior stain availlable?

Yes.  There are many new products for various exterior surfaces that have zero VOCs and low odor.

question My home was previously stained with a low VOC water-based stain. Do you have a water-based exterior stain? I've been told that I can only use a water based transparent stain over this coating.

You will either have to re-stain with a water-based stain or strip off the old coating. We are experienced with water-based, exterior transparent stains, and have several durable products available.

question Are zero VOC paints and stains as durable as low VOC paints and stains?

For interior surfaces, yes.  They may require some additional application time, however.  For exterior surfaces, it depends on your individual project.  Contact us today for a free site assessment.

question Can I request a hand-brushed exterior finish??

In many cases we will normally recommend a hand-brushed finish.  Not only does this use fewer resources and reduce the impact on the surroundings, but we can achieve a more uniform finish at a very small increase in price.
