Choose the right paints for your dream-home:

What makes a beautiful home? Is it the architecture? Or the landscaping? Or is it furnishing? Actually, it’s all of them. We often have seen that beautifully designed houses lose their charm if the finishing is done arbitrarily, or the paint on the exteriors is showing signs of damage due to rain or excessive heat. We all want our house to stay protected from all that damage. The right thing to do here, would be choosing the right interior and exterior paints. All it takes, is some planning and prioritizing on your part regarding what to spend on and how to spot the right products in the market to suit your requirements.

Let’s say, we start with the interiors first. What’s on your mind? Smooth finish, stain resistence, eco-friendliness… There are a huge variety of interior paints available in the market. For the all these, you can choose from Satin, Matt & Low Sheen.

Satin: Satin acrylic paints for the interiors of your home that is resistant to most stains such as coffee or wine, would go well with most people who like to have family gatherings and house parties at home. Easy to render, these products provide a highly washable and hard wearing finish, makes it extremely smooth, uniform cover.

Matt: Matt acrylic paints for the interiors of your home that hides surface imperfections with an elegant velvety feel would go well for people who like the more “subtle” look. These products render a smooth and durable finish which is both attractive and long lasting.

Low Sheen: Low Sheen acrylic paints for the interiors of your home that is washable, hides minor surface imperfections and have a soft elegant glow. They would go well with people who want their interiors to look as good as new with the durability and reliability of a low sheen finish.

As for the exteriors, they should be durable, protective, waterproof and must have heat reflective properties. As this coat is responsible for preventing the interiors from getting affected by harsh summers or extreme winters, special care should be taken to ensure that the paint is a good investment.

There are a huge variation of exterior paints available in the market ranging from waterproof, rustproof, dustproof, paving paints, heat reflecting top coats etc. Each of them have their own benefits and should be fully known and searched for, before investing.

Waterproof exterior paints essentially protect the outer layer and interiors from dampening from moisture and humidity. While water seepage can cause major damage to the structure of the building, and cause the interiors to look shabby and unkempt, waterproof paints have a protective outer coat that resists moisture or water from the rains from accumulating on the walls. This results in super-shiny interiors and sqeaky-clean exteriors.

Heat reflective exterior paints, significantly reduce absorbed heat in the wall by selective reflection of infrared light. They remain cool, even in dark colours, reduce thermal shock and in some climate zones negate the need for added insulation at all. Avoid the use of deep tone exteriors, (that are non-reflective) because, although they might be aesthetically appealing, add absorbed heat to the building envelope and are contrary to basic principals of energy efficiency.

All these things kept in mind, you’d never go wrong with your choice for your dream home. For your convenience, Astec Paints offers all these varieties to suit all your requirements. They offer paints and base coats to make the paint durable and attractive.
