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 Chelmsford 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 Chelmsford 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 Freire 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.

  • We used Friere Painting while adding a two story addition with master suite to our home. Later we had them paint the entire exterior of our home and to update the painting in our living and dining rooms. Levy and his crew are extremely hard working. They met or exceeded deadlines on all our projects. Levy is knowledgeable about paint types, and was helpful in choosing appropriate colors for our projects. He was also patient with us when we changed our minds, and he had to repaint areas. The crew is neat and responsible. I highly recommend Freire Painting without reservation.

  • There are so many positive things to say about them that it's difficult to fit it in one review. Let me start by saying that Levy is a stand up gentleman. Himself and his team treated my girlfriend, my home, and myself with respect. They were always clean, polite, and accommodating. The quality of work was amazing. The cost was also very fair and he explained every single inch of what he was going to do. After only 5 days our entire condos older oak looking trim was completely re-painted and came out great. I would highly recommend Freire Painting to anyone looking to get any kind of paint project done. Thank you you Levy for all your hard work!

  • This company is truly amazing. We needed our outside shutters painted on the house because they were extremely faded from the sun. I called Levy the owner and he came out right away to give me a price. Picked up the paint the same day after we chose color and started the next morning no hassle, very professional and precise in his craft. Very happy with the work and would recommend this company 100 percent!
