How to Pick the Right Paint

ECOS 10/18/2014

Floor paint, wall paint, trim paint, eggshell, satin, semi-gloss – with so many different types of paints and so many different finishes, how do you know what to choose? Every project you tackle will have unique requirements, but we found a great article on Houzz that covers the basic issues you should understand. Here's how to pick the right paint:

Once you know what type of finish and sheen you need, choose ECOS! With ECOS, you’ll get the best paints and finishes possible — and the best service. Here's a little bit about what you can expect from ECOS that you won't find anywhere else:

  • Superior Coverage - ECOS Paints cover up to 1.5 times more surface area than traditional paints because our products aren’t diluted with cheap solvents and fillers — they’re naturally thicker, mask better and cover your walls with ease. With ECOS, you spend less time painting and less money per square foot.
  • Unparalleled Color - No one creates colors like us. Why? Because it takes highly trained professionals to mix them. We produce everything in-house using the most advanced, environmentally-friendly pigments - a tinting process too complex and delicate for untrained retail staff. Our rich, deep pigments are imported from Europe and we can mix them into any shade you can imagine.
  • Extraordinary Durability - Want something that lasts? Of course you do. Our paints are so durable we use them on the floor of our factory where we drive fork lifts on them every day. Indoors or out, when you use ECOS, you’ll enjoy much more time before needing to repaint.
  • Incomparable Safety - Surprisingly, many paints labelled ‘eco-friendly’ or ‘zero-VOC’ still contain toxic chemicals and give off fumes linked to asthma, allergies and cancer. Our paints are truly zero VOC*.
