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 College Station 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 College Station 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 Guaranteed Painting Co. 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

  • We were exceptionally pleased with the exterior painting of our home, including our screened-in back porch, as well as the the porch ceiling being stained. George and his crew went above and beyond our expectations. The crew worked tirelessly and professionally the entire 5 days.

    I would give more than 5 stars if I could. I contacted 3 painters in Bryan for my boss who needed her parents' former home painted 3 days later when she would be in town. I spoke with Herb first and was so impressed with his thoroughness, professionalism and courtesy that the other two guys really didn't have a chance... They were respectful, protected all surfaces and cleaned up thoroughly, and didn't fill her trashcans with paint stuff. They even took down 10 wind chimes and put them all back up in the same order... After the work was completed, he did a walk through with her to ensure everything was to her satisfaction. And then within an hour, Herb arrived on site to inspect the work as well. Can't recommend Guaranteed enough!

    The first time we used Herb Thorn and Guaranteed Painting Co. was for inside painting. We called him at the recommendation of our realtor when we first purchased our home. I didn't think we could have a better experience. The work was wonderful, much better quality than we had been used to getting in California. Herb's crews were the cleanest, most courteous and helpful workmen that you could ask for. The attention to detail and doing the job right was noticeable. Now, after 5 years we are selling our home and moving back to SoCal and I had Herb come and take care of some outside wood repairs and complete exterior painting, as well as some inside painting that we didn't do the first time. The house is so beautiful and the work was done so well that I just had to take a minute and write this review. If you have painting, carpentry, or other home improvement needs call these people. They are the BEST! You won't be disappointed. I wish we could take them back with us!

    We have had Herb and his crew paint our house a few times now. He is timely, takes care to do the proper preparation and gives good advice. I will call him again next time I need painting.

    Guaranteed Painting did the exterior, kitchen cabinets, and many rooms for me this summer. Even replaced a door frame and did dry wall repair. They did an excellent job and my house looks better than ever. I highly recommend Herb and his crew to do a quality job, on time and on budget.
