Durability - Oil or Latex
I did a search on this and nothing definitive came up. We have stairs going down into our basement family room and it is the only place I have not painted in some time and painted over with latex. I know the issues of latex over oil based, however I am wondering about the durability of latex on a high traffic area like stairs. These stairs were painted some ten years ago, and the oil paint has stood up very well. With a few nicks showing, and me being a perfection nut, I want to paint them again. Will latex stand up as well as oil based? I really would not like to have to do this job again in a year or so.
