Northwest Chicago Suburbs Painting Companies

Paint is one of the most cost-effective ways to transform a house, inside and out. When you look for painting contractors in Chicago to do interior or exterior painting, look to Northwest Chicago Best Pick Reports, which evaluates and documents the performance of painting contractors in your area. A company cannot pay for a good rating. All of our research data is unbiased and continuously updated to ensure you have the most recent and relevant information. The only way for a painting contractor to become one of our Best Pick companies is through interviews with Chicago residents who have had positive first-hand experiences with them. Using Best Pick Reports to find a local Northwest Chicago or Bartlett painter will ensure that you find a quality contractor. When you know which company to contact for your painting project, the only things left to decide are paint type and color.

Your home is ready to paint: the room is cleared out, the painting area is clean, and the walls are in good condition. Now is the time for your perfect primer and paint to go up, but what is the best paint for you? The paint aisle at your local home improvement store is most likely one of the more visually striking spots in the building, but it can also be stressful when searching for the ideal paint. Should you choose a matte latex or high gloss oil? Does the finish matter? Something else to consider is the amount of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) in the paint. The government has determined VOCs to have negative health effects, so consider using paints low in VOCs. Consult with your chosen Northwest Chicago painter with concerns about VOC paints in your home. VOC levels aside, there are two types of paint generally used in the home for you to choose from: water and oil-based.

Acrylics and other paints that are water-based are known as “latex” in the store. Water-based paints are generally easier to apply and clean up than oil-based paints. They come in a variety of finishes, ranging from gloss and semi-gloss to flat or matte. Latex paints are the most common paint choices used in homes. Water-based paint generally has a low VOC rating, and some advertise as “VOC free.” Be sure to check with a professional about the labels on these items, as they can sometimes be misleading. Oil-based paint is resilient and glossy and normally used on trim and woodwork rather than walls. This paint type takes some know-how to apply and more time to dry than its water-based counterpart. Oil-based paint is also harder to clean up, and it requires tough scrubbing and mineral spirits when you do clean it. Walls with an unusual finish or with significant damage that’s been repaired may require oil-based paint to appear evenly covered. However, it is typically suited for smaller surfaces like railings, cabinets, and bannisters. If you are unclear whether to use water- or oil-based paints for your project, a Best Pick painter will help navigate you through this and other tough decisions.

There are also products on the market sold as enamel paints; they are typically durable and high gloss, but there is not a specific chemical or ingredient in the paint called “enamel.”  Enamel paints can be easily cleaned and have a high-shine finish. Enamel paints are water-based and are best for kitchens, bathrooms, or areas with a lot of traffic. Depending on the size on your home improvement project, you may need to use multiple types of paint. A Best Pick Northwest Chicago area or Barrington painter will help you with your large or small painting project.
