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 Encinitas 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 Encinitas 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 Parker 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.

Jason and his whole team was awesome! They went above and beyond to complete my big project on a tight deadline, and with excellent skill! We painted all the interiors and the kitchen cabinets and are so so happy with how everything turned out! I 200% recommend Parker Painting and will be using them again for any future projects!

We couldn't be happier with Parker Painting. Perhaps the best aspect of our experience with them painting our stucco house was the professionalism of their approach. Jason, the owner was easy-going, responsive, reliable and straight-forward about scope and costs. The crew (Angel, Mario, James) were skilled and took pride in the project. We're definitely having them back to tackle the interior.

Exterior Painting Services

Jason and his team did a great job on our house in Encinitas. In less than 4 days they completely prepped, primed, and painted the exterior. It had been more than 20 years since the last painting, so it was an extensive job. Jason is very friendly and flexible. I highly recommend him.
