Itâ€™s a common frustration that we hear about time and time again. Reinforced by misconceptions and confused by the volume of information available â€“ What is the difference between WATER BASED and OIL BASED exterior coatings?
First things first – and most common question â€“ Which lasts longer? Now, you might have heard from an uncle or from your mate who knows a builder that OIL BASED lasts longer. This is the general consensus of the old-school â€“ and it is incorrect! WATER BASED, is not only easier to use, faster drying and safer, but represents newer technology, with which OIL BASED simply cannot compete.
