The primary difference between the cost of interior paints ($10 to $70 per gallon) and exterior paints ($15 to $80 per gallon) is the resin. The resins used in exterior paints are softer, making them resistant to flaking, chipping, and sun damage. The interior paint uses a more rigid resin that resists marking and staining. Many exterior paints use a resin that causes outgassing, an emission of volatile organic compounds. Common to many manufactured products, it is what causes that “new car smell.” The outgassing from exterior paint resins continues for many years, even after the odor dissipates. It is a major reason professionals don't use or allow homeowners to use exterior paints indoors.
Yes, you can mix interior and exterior paints as long as they have the same base. You can even mix a flat and a semi-gloss paint as long as they are both either oil-based or water-based. Be sure to combine both paints in a clean container and thoroughly mix the paints.
You can, of course, choose bolder colors and make them work with older homes. But we advise choosing colors that play well with the age and vibe of the home and that bring out the home’s good bones.
As an example, walls are measured in square feet while interior trim is measured in linear feet.

We needed fascia painted on a large 2 story home. We have some decorative areas that protrude from the areas around the windows, making this jobs a bit more challenging. Alisa was very patient with our requests for added details with the quote. Alisa was always readily available, attentive to our needs, and brought the whole process together smoothly, timely and professionally with a very pleasant demeanor. We got a great deal on our job and are extremely pleased with the result. Two thumbs up!
The J Clarke Painting website uses a rather simple design with lots of texts and a few images. By using bulleted and paragraphed text, the designers conveyed a message in an organized way. The top of the homepage makes good use of a revolving set of images.
