There are two types of paint — water-based and solvent-based. Solvent-based paint uses a higher level of organic solvents and are responsible for the strong, noticeable odours in freshly painted homes and buildings. For this reason, A&S Homes only uses water-based paint when building your new home.
Water-based paint contains a limited amount of organic solvents; offers easy maintenance when removing scuffs and marks from your wall; and dries quicker than solvent-based paint. Most importantly, water-based paint is the healthier option, both for the environment and your well-being.
