Thanks for the follow-ups. Much appreciated.

Now...you and others reading this post who might otherwise end up like you should be so lucky as to have people "bickering" on behalf of the facts. Actually it was a few of us setting one particular person straight--or at least attempting to limit the impact of his questionable-at-best information--information that he was just bound and determined to pass on.

And yet I would not be surprised to find Homebld sticking to his guns. I mean, why let the facts get in the way? They never figured into his point-of-view before.

Anyway I'm glad to see the homeowner took the path of least resistance by going for the most obvious solution first. And in any case it's nice to see such a nasty and lingering problem solved!

One final note. Exterior paint is formulated differently than interior paint. When you coat a surface, chemicals interact and some are designed to escape. Exterior paints are formulated to be tougher than their interior counterparts, and thier chemicals designed to escape into the OUTSIDE air.

Word to the wise.

I am glad the Ops problems appear to be resolved.

There was NEVER any argument from me about the possibility that it was the paint, just that the symptoms dictated could have been something else completely....AND that under most circumstances, using exterior paint interiorally produces no ill results.

Except for those who have insisted on falsley putting words in my mouth or fabricating stories about what I have allegedly 'said', then feigning shock at my "words".... I have been open to the possibility of the paint being 'bad' right along.

Hope the OPs smell doesn't come back, hope nobody uses exterior paint on their interiors, and hope some of the posters here develop better manners.....

Homebld, you were quoted directly more then once in those previous posts, and you never answered. You were questioned directly more than once. Again, you did not answer.

Then you compound your revisionist history by saying: "There was NEVER any argument from me about the possibility that it was the paint." Okay, here is your ENTIRE post, word for word.

"Using exterior paints in the interior should result in no odors or health problems.

Your problem sounds more like a sewer gas and can be caused by a cracked sewer line, a blocked vent, or traps devoid of water.

Likewise, if you have a combustion type heat such as natural gas, propane, oil or coal...you could have a faulty chimney or heating system.

Suggest a plumber and/or heating technician.

Not likley a paint problem."

Now if this is not arguing against the possiblity that the problem might be the paint--oh, come on! Sure, you covered your rear, but it's clear what you're saying. And let's not forget the level of argumentative ferver in your second post. You were quoted directly on that once already.

Finally, as predicted, Homebld remains clinging (if only faintly) to his guns. The Ops declares "The verdict is in!!" Homebld is glad the problem "appears" to be resolved.

Is that the best 'cleanedge' can do?

Take my comments out of context, twist them about, never offer any proof of their error, nor provide evidence his own claims are true, then conclude me wrong?

If that is the 'best' cleanedge can claim, I wouldn't trust him with painting anything I owned let alone making authoritative (yet completley unsupported) claims about Exterior vs Interior paints despite manufacturers' arguments to the contrary.

Cleanedge just wants to argue for argument's sake and not to provide any more truth to this thread or aid the poster (which he has not done in any way).

I can only then conclude that cleanedge is nothing more than a continued malcontent despite my own admissions that I am glad the OP had her problems solved and am glad for her.

Don't know what cleanedge's problem is but it is not with painting and not even with the truth of my posts.

Just seems that cleanedge has personal issues that remained unresolved and he needs to blame them on someone else but himself.

Sorry.

If you tell us where you live maybe we can recommend a good psychiatrist or counselor?

Admittedly the man has powerful gumption to complain he was taken out of context when the full citation of his post was offered as evidence against his claim that "There was NEVER any argument from me about the possibility that it was the paint." Yes, this is the essence of Homebld.

Homebld never explains how he is taken out of context. Just that it is so. Again, the essence of Homebld.

And who can forget this nugget that surely moved us closer to the solution:

>>...I would not be at all satisfied that this remains a 'paint' problem until all other known causes of the odor have been resolved.

Sewer gas odors occur under the EXACT same circumstances as these alleged 'paint' odors....

Sign me,

Not Convinced.

Recall by that point the original contractor had agreed to do a free repaint. Add two more paint contractors, two do-it-yourselfers, the original poster and a paint store manager all favoring the exterior paint option. But Homebld–bless him–he had that tiger by the tail, and dang if he was lettin’ go!

And don’t forget Homebld has yet (although asked directly once before) to cite even ONE specific source to back his claim that it is okay to use exterior paint on interiors. Perhaps there are such sources. But–surprise!--from Homebld : not a single one. (Or to say it with Homebldian drama):

Not one.

Ok...I could go on but I suppose it is cruel and unusual to continue shooting fish in a barrel especially now that Homebld has reduced himself to blubbering psychiatric advice.

As a sign of peace, however, I offer the self-proclaimed victim, the misrepresented, the twisted, the taken out of context, attacked and otherwise maligned Homebld the uncontested last word. I know how badly he wants it. All yours :)
