Where did paint come from?

Is color the most important factor when painting your home? Is white really going to make your home look clean and new? How does the condition of your walls affect its overall appearance? Most homes use drywall in their homes. The name “drywall” refers to the fact that walls made of the material are installed without the use of water. Before world war two, most homes used labor intensive plaster. With all of our hardworking drywall installers overseas, manufacturing drywall quickly became a builders choice. The good news is, repairing drywall surfaces is a much easier task than working with plaster products. Ask a specialist what he can do to make your walls look like new, before painting.
It was the Greek philosopher Plato who discovered that you can mix two different paint colors together to produce a third color.
