Okay, everybody needs paint the inside or the outside of their house at one point in time, and you might be confused as to what is the best paint to buy. Well, I am going to tell you, you would look at the paint can label because they hold a great amount of information that tells you which tells you which paint is the best.
Now, all paints are really colored blue. Look on the label. You are going to find words like acrylic, and vinyl or polymers, those are very key words—not best paint are the once that have 100% acrylic resins. Acrylic resins are really stretchable and they will yield to the expansion and contraction of wood and they stay on for a long time.
Another paint glue that is often used, but it is not really as good, are the vinyl acetates or the vinyl type glues. Now look for that on the labels. Maybe you could use that type of paint for something that is not as important to you or something that maybe is going to be repainted in three or four years.

Almost twice as thick as regular paints, and these things are guaranteed for the light of your home. I can tell you right now, that is the next glue and the next paint I am going to use on my own home.
