Express Remodeling has been a painting contractor for Portland, Salem, and Lake Oswego since 1994. In that time we've inspected, prepared, primed, and painted the interior and exterior for hundreds of homes all over Oregon. Great painting takes more than a contractor and paint, it means choosing the right painting contractor and the best paint for your home.
When it comes to choosing paint you have a variety of sheens to choose from including oil or latex. The most common and preferred paint type is latex because it's long lasting durability and ease of clean up. It also tends to be more fade resistant and breathes better than oil, resulting in less blistering of the paint. We recommend using a latex paint for most of your walls and household uses.
Oil based paint is a great option for priming trim because it tends to seal stains and knots from the wood better than a latex paint. However, oil based paint does take longer to dry, so please take this into consideration when choosing your paint.
Just recently we started collecting before and after shots of projects we've worked on, and we'd love your project to be added to our growing gallery.
