    Do you know how durable no and low VOC paint is? A few years ago, I read an article where several professional painters weren’t happy with the performance of no and low VOC paint because it had to be repainted every two years or so. I can’t find anything to confirm or deny this. Have you?

    I repainted my home with Pure Performance no VOC paint about four years ago, and it’s really held up well. I think paint quality is improving all the time; I have had no complaints with the paint I’ve used.

    I wanted to add something about lead paint. There is actually paint sold on the market now that contains lead. I discovered this when picking up a spray paint at Lowes, the brand Valspar. (I don’t know if everything in that product line has lead in it but it’s worth a cautionary note from me!) On the back of the paint was the classic “Lead” warning.
    I decided to go to the craft store and find a safer paint. So watch out and read the labels!

    Wow – thanks so much for the heads up! I’ll check it out, too.

    It should be pointed out that VOC levels alone don’t make a paint environmentally friendly. More info here: http://ecopainterbrighton.co.uk/blog/what-voc
