Painting Trim: BS Satin Impervo vs. SW ProClassic Oil Enamel
I know this has been rehashed a million times, and I've been reading through a ton of posts. Long story short: We are painting several built-ins and the trim in our house white.
We've had four estimates. Three painters insisted on oil-based enamel - either Ben Moore or the SW Pro-Classic. The fourth guy said that he really only works with the water-based Satin Impervo. The oil guys say it's the only way to go; the other guy says that the Impervo is an excellent product and what he uses. We really liked this guy.
I have the ProClassic in my kitchen and though the fumes nearly killed me, it's hard as a rock. Any of you Satin Impervo people have any thoughts to share? This would go on trim, built in china hutches and a fireplace mantle with books shelves. I've heard rumors of it being "sticky" . . .
Thanks in advance for any insight. I called the Ben Moore guy and he said old school guys insist on oil, but at some point these kinds of paints will be phased out.
