What kind of paint do we use for a three-season sunroom addition?

Answered by Brendan ~ March 22, 2010 ~ Comments

We are putting in a three-season sunroom addition to the back of our home. The summers here in Glens Falls, New York are hot, fall and spring temperate, but the winters are frigid. What kind of indoor paint should we use for our sunroom that won't peel or crack under these fluctuating conditions?

I don't think I would use an indoor paint at all if this space is exposed to the weather. I would use exterior grade paint. Exterior grade paint tends to be more elastomeric, allowing it to move along with whatever it is painted over without cracking as easily. If this sunroom is going to be completely sealed off from the outside elements, and this is truly inside space, you should be fine using any high quality interior paint.
