HOW TO SELECT EXTERIOR PAINT

How to Select Paint - Exterior House Painting

Selecting exterior paint is a very personal choice for most people. Many factors need to be considered when it comes to exterior house painting. And with so many colors of paint available, choosing a color can feel like an impossible task.

We will help you choose the type of paint that will work on the surface of your exterior. Vinyl, brick, wood and fiber-cement siding all have paints that work better or worse on them. Understanding what works best often comes from experience. The same is true for painting stucco finishes.

When selecting a paint color for your exterior many factors can come into play. Homeowners need to consider any homeowners association rules that would affect the color choice. Many Raleigh homeowners will have their home repainted the same color, or a color very similar. That is the easy and safe decision.

Others will look for a more dramatic impact in a house painting project. If that's you, you should be sure to consider:

  • Other houses in the neighborhood. Most homeowners don't want to pick a color that sticks out as inappropriate.
  • What colors would fit with the original style and era of your home?
  • Are you painting everything on the exterior of your home (doors, shudders, etc.) or just the walls?

That third question is a big one. It can be difficult for Raleigh area homeowners to picture how the new color will be affected by its surroundings. It's one thing to hold a paint swatch up and a completely different thing when that color is painted on the entire house.

Other Surfaces

Selecting paint or stain for the other surfaces inside or outside your home, office building or rental property can be just as challenging. While the designers on television can make creating a unified look seem easy, at ColorEdge Painters we know it can be much harder in reality. When you work with us, we'll rely on our knowledge, expertise and experience to help you select the paint, stain or other finish that will work best for you.

Great work ColorEdge Painters! We went to the beach for the weekend while they refinished our deck and repainted our screened-in porch. We came back and it looked great. What a difference! Thank you for being so flexible and for your excellent work.

We've been using ColorEdge Painters to help us turn our apartments for a few years now. We gave them a trial run and then quickly decided we'd use them for all of our interior apartment painting. Their combination of speed and quality can't be beat!

I highly recommend ColorEdge Painters to anybody who is looking to get the outside of their house painted. I've given their name to three of my neighbors and would hire them again in a minute.

Thank you ColorEdge Painters. I love the way our house looks now that you painted the walls. I'm so glad we asked you to paint them right when we moved in. You were so easy to work with and your professionalism was definitely top notch.
