Breathable vs Traditional Paint.

Breathable paints are a type of paint that allows moisture to pass through the paint film, rather than trapping it inside the wall. This can be especially important in areas with high humidity or in homes with older, more porous construction materials.

Traditionally, paints have been made with non-breathable film-forming agents, which can trap moisture inside the wall and contribute to the growth of mold and mildew. This can be a serious problem, as mould and mildew can not only damage the integrity of your home, but also pose a health risk to those living inside.

Breathable paints, on the other hand, are designed to allow moisture to pass through the paint film and evaporate into the air, rather than being trapped inside the wall. This can help prevent the growth of mould and mildew and improve the overall health and safety of your home, it’s a Healthy Home Paint.

Types of Breathable Paint.

There are several types of breathable paints available, including lime-based paints, silicate-based paints, and mineral-based paints. These paints are made with natural, breathable ingredients that allow moisture to pass through the paint film and evaporate into the air. Earthborn Paints make a Clay based paint which is breathable, Farrow & Ball Estate Emulsion is also a breathable paint .

help prevent the growth of mould and mildew

In addition to preventing the growth of mould and mildew, breathable paints have a number of other benefits. They are often more durable and long-lasting than traditional paints, and they can also help improve the energy efficiency of your home by reducing the amount of moisture trapped inside the walls.

If you’re considering painting your home and want to choose a more breathable option, choose a product that is specifically designed for this purpose. Breathable paints can be a great choice for those looking to improve the health and safety of their home while also getting the benefits of a long-lasting, high-quality paint job.

Our hall and kitchen needed a serious makeover and Chris done a magnificent job and his work looks fabulous. Our tired hall was stripped of its old painted anaglypta and the walls sanded, lined and wallpapered. The wallpaper we choose looks brilliant and has transformed the hallway into a welcoming entrance. The kitchen looks like we have had a new one fitted. The cupboards were all painted and the walls and ceiling redecorated. It was great value for money. With an excellent result. We highly recommend Chris and you will not be disappointed.
We have been renovating our period property for some time now. Being new to the area we didn't have any contacts but took a leap of faith with Chris. We needed someone with the skill and experience to use traditional decorating methods such as lining walls and ceilings prior to decoration and papering. Stripping back the wood to original features etc. Chris has now completed the whole of the interior and exterior of our property. He has done a great job, he is reliable ,skilled and hardworking. I would recommend him without hesitation.
