Will going green cost more?

When a homeowner decides on going green the real value is an improved healthier atmosphere for one’s family and helping protect our environment. This is worth more and hard to calculate its value with any amount of money. The initial cost may be more but it’s a better value in the long run.


Going green is a smart choice for any homeowner because it can:

  • Help create a healthier home environment improving the air quality
  • Help reduce asthmatic and/or allergic reactions
  • Reduce the need for artificial light thus saving energy
  • Reduce the need to repaint less which helps minimize environmental impact

The following are some steps J&S Painting Company recommends homeowners to consider when going green:

  • Use low VOC (volatile organic compounds) or zero VOC paint
  • Use water based or latex paints
  • Use low VOC, water based wood finishes

J&S Painting Company realizes that going green isn’t and all or nothing proposition. Whether you decide to paint green one room at a time or your entire house all at once, it’s a step in the right direction. Together we can take eco-friendly steps toward a smarter and healthier environment.

Will paint get rid of cigarette smoke odor?

Cigarette smoke clings to every surface in your home, including floors, furniture and walls. While the process to eliminate smoke odor includes taking measures like, removing carpets, window treatments, changing air filters, etc., a thorough painting from top to bottom with the proper primer as well as top quality odor eliminating paint, will effectively assist in the process.

What type of paint should we use?

This really depends on the space. Here are some quick references:


Interior Paint

  • Flat is better in low traffic areas and helps de-emphasize imperfections on a surface
  • Satin, eggshell and semigloss work better in high traffice areas; resist stains better and are easier to clean
  • Highgloss is perfect to bring attention to an area or architectural feature; the glossier the paint the more noticeable the imperfections of the surface
  • Low VOC or zero VOC paint helps reduce energy costs, improves air quality, is durable and helps our planet

Exterior Paint

  • Latex or water based paint is better resistant to peeling and blistering
  • Paint seals into the wood helps retard the penetration of moisture
  • Varnishes accent and enhance the grain and color of wood; requires frequent maintenance
  • Penetrating finishes should contain water repellents and preservatives that control the growth of mildew
