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 Louisville 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 Louisville 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 Day's Painting 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.

    Day's Painting is wonderful! They were very quick to response and got us on the schedule asap. We need some light repairs and touch up painting in order to get our home ready to sell. Chris was very friendly and helpful and the painting crew was very professional. They covered everything and clean up after themselves. Easy Peasy from start to finish. Would highly recommend their services!

Both my husband and I have told many people about Chris and the job he does. I'm so grateful to have them take care of our painting needs. We consider Days Painting one of those great blessings from our gracious God!

    We are overjoyed with the results of the work done to our home. The painting of walls and ceilings are spot on. The work on the kitchen cabinets is terrific. They look brand new. The work crew was very professional and courteous. They cleaned up and vacuumed every day. Chris was on top of everything and kept us up to date. Thanks to him and his whole crew.
