SELECTING 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 Virginia Beach 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 Virginia Beach 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 Randy Overacre Painting Company Inc. 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.

  • Randy Overacre Painting just finished painting my house, this is the third home I have had the paint. This time I actually had them paint my cabinets and they look PHENOMINAL!!!! They also did the epoxy coating on garage floors. The employees are beyond impressive and very honest. I left $30 on the stairs by accident and one of the painters called my cell phone to tell me he found it and left it in a drawer for me. I can not say enough great things about Randy Overacre Painting, you are more than welcome to private message me to give you information.
