The fumes emitted from exterior paints and wood finishes contribute to poor environmental air quality in our cities and towns. Many people dont understand the implications of this, thinking that because it is outside it is not important to use a low VOC product. However the fumes, or VOC's, emitted from exterior paints and finishes will affect the health of the person applying them, plus contribute to environmental SMOG. Air pollution from SMOG is a major environmental problem. It is the reason VOC levels in paints and wood finishes are now subject to tighter and tighter regulation in Europe, America and Australia.
Greenstar buildings must use low VOC paints and wood finishes inside and out to qualify for Greenstar ratings. Most of the paints and finishes sold on this site qualify for Greenstar. Using these paints and finishes can result in a higher property valuation for the building.
