HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, July 15, 2008 7 .................................................. HOMELIVING A lick of green Environmentally advanced products are based on renewable resources Care for the environment by using environmentally sustainable and advanced paint and building materials, Rohm and Haas Paint Quality Institute manager Mike Beresford says. ''By choosing the right paint . . . you can improve the look and feel of the home while minimising the impact on the environment,'' he says. Although paint contributes just 4 per cent of total airborne emissions, quality paint manufacturers have been developing better products that have minimal impact on the environment. Today's 100 per cent acrylic, water-based interior and exterior paints have low or no volatile organic compounds -- the ingredients that contribute to air pollution and odour. These paints don't need harmful solvents in the clean-up. Brushes and rollers can simply be washed with soap and water. The exterior paints can protect the home from UV radiation, and resist mildew growth. Acrylic elastomeric and multi-layered texture coatings provide an excellent sealer for brick, stone and other masonry materials. Multiple layered texture systems also have the advantage of providing a thicker, stronger and more flexible layer that resists extreme elements for 10 years or more. Sealing the gaps around windows and doorways using a quality acrylic sealant contributes to the comfort of the home. Mr Beresford says these environmentally advanced products are based on renewable resources, protect air and water quality, and are able to be disposed of with little or no environmental impact. Details: www.paintquality.com.au Easy as PVC Make your eave or veranda lining a home feature with PVC panels. The tongue-and- groove Decoform panels come in a high- gloss, white finish to provide an alternative to traditional eave lining. They slot into each other for a tight, mould-free, practically invisible, join. The product is easily cut with a fine tooth saw. Glue or secret nail the lightweight panels to the timber frame and the entire job will be completed in no time. The waterproof Decoform lining never needs painting and comes with a 10-year guarantee. It is ideal for pergola, gazebo or carport ceilings.
