Choosing The Right Color When Painting The Exterior Of My Home

Overtime, the paint on the exterior of your home may start to wear and tear. Every 5-10 years, it's a good idea to get your home painted. As one of the easiest ways to give your home a makeover, you’ll end the project with curb appeal and reflect the style of your home.


How To Choose A Color?

Some helpful tips are that dark colors do absorb heat that can damage the siding and depending on your home’s architectural style, you can choose the right shade of color. An example is a modern style home will look better with lighter shades of blue or green. Creating your palette for the exterior of your home is a major step. For example, you may want the color scheme to match the interior of your home. This would mean taking a deep look at each and every room in your home to match the overall theme. Another thought to consider is adding multiple colors to your exterior versus one.

Right Time To Paint

Before starting, you’ll want to get rid of any bumpy or dirty surfaces. The paint should stick well and look great once applied. As you may already know, paint releases VOC in the air which is harmful until the paint dries. You can also ensure the paint you buy has very little or no VOC.
