Paints - One of the hardest finish paints available is an synthetic alkyd/urea paint. Typically these are available as spray paints. Working with spray products demands a high level of skill. The importance of wood preparation, curing of the finish, and use of the best paint for the type of finish chosen is a hallmark of the Chalifoux experience. Whether you choose a smooth or distressed finish, you can count on Chalifoux to provide the best finish paint using proper application and curing techniques with each paint type and color.
