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 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.

Testimonials

  • I called Randy after another company had done a horrible job painting my kitchen cabinets. Honestly, I believe I could have done a better job painting them. However I would have been embarrassed for anyone to think that I painted them and they turned out that bad. Randy came in and told me what needed to be done. I trusted him to do the job and I am glad I did. His company really knows what they are doing. He came in cleaned someone else's mess and they look great! I could not be more pleased with the way they turned out. I would highly recommend Randy Overacre Painting to friends, family and anyone that is looking for a good painter.

    Randy and his crew just completed the renovation of our kitchen. They did our cabinets and all of our kitchen furniture. I can not praise them enough. The crew is respectful and communicate with you to make sure you are on the same page. Their work is flawless. If you are looking for any type of painting, I highly recommend them. I know I will never use anyone else. Thank You Randy !

    AMAZING! The painter sent to my home was so wonderful, though I was at work most of the time... when I would come home at the end of the day to see the day's progress, everything (EVERYTHING) was tidy, neat and cleaned up after the day's activities / This earns LOTS of "Brownie Points" in my book! / The kitchen cabinets look great! / By far, the BEST company in town! / Thanks Randy for taking my job on! / this is one HAPPY GIRL!
