Many paint companies have recently increased the amount of low or no VOC (volatile organic compound) paints they offer. These types of paints are available at almost all paint suppliers within Toronto and the GTA and are currently being used more and more by most Toronto painting companies and painters.

Deciding on the kind of paint to use can often be difficult, but given the variety of no or low VOC paint currently on the market, we suggest choosing a paint with this particular characteristic. These types of paints are much better for the environment and do not have as harsh an odour. A wide variety of product options from entry-level to high quality paints are currently available. Help do your part to keep Toronto and the GTA beautiful by choosing a one of these paints for your next painting job.
