  • What paint for baseboards

    My wife wants me to put in some new baseboards this weekend. Any recommendations for what paint to use. Needs to be tough as I have four kids that play a lot of mini-sticks in the basement! Thanks.

    Get a top quality trim paint. Goto Benjamin moore and get the best they have. Personally I stay with latex paints but for durability you can't beat oil-based paint.

        I used Advance in the fifth wheel & it has survived feral grand kids very well.

          Two votes for Benjamin Moore Advance. Sounds like a plan.

            Behr does have a trim & Cabinet paint that seems to work very well. I used to use Benjamin Moore products all the time for my personal home but found the price tag had jumped to an excessive level. I tried the Behr line at Home Depot and have been using it ever since. They even have frequent rebate offers to help a bit.

                I am currently renovating my home and used Emerald Urethane Trim Enamel and I got to say I was impressed. I sprayed and brushed this paint in a semi-gloss and it laid down very smooth and void of any brush marks... where I used a brush I hope this helps!
