2 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, May 26, 2009 HOMELIVING Get it right Paint & decorate Tony Isgrove Painter, decorator, and president of the Master Painters Association When choosingpaints you will need to ensure that the paint is suitable (interior or exterior) -- as using interior paints outside is not recommended. It is also important to determine what paints have been previously used and whether they are oil- or water-based. This will make a big difference to the finish and you don't want to be disappointed with all your hard work. If the surfaces are new they will need to be treated in an appropriate manner and this will depend on the material you are painting, so be sure to get the right paint for the job athand. Be sure to prepare the work before painting to avoid disappointment. The internet has an abundance of information available at your fingertips. Alternatively, you can always consult with reputable paint stores as to which product is suitable for aparticular surface, the finish required and protective qualities necessary. In addition, you cantalk to a reputable paint store to gain all the advice you need on the best paint for the job. Remember, regardless of which paint you choose, you always get what you pay for. A low-quality paint can often be false economy, resulting in poor finishes and the need to repaint sooner rather than later.
