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 Lowell 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 Lowell 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.
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 had a large kitchen and bathroom renovation over the Winter of 2022. Levi and team were brought in to paint the interior walls, ceiling and a staircase. This was our first interior renovation since buying the house in 2014. Levi was able to consult with us and give us sample paints to see what colors worked best in each room, matching it perfectly to the cabinets, tile floors, and fixtures. They went to great length to sand and prep the area filing in the gaps with caulk and other building material to give us a great finish. We couldn't be happier with the job performed. I highly recommend them.
Freire Painting has been our go-to choice for interior and exterior painting for a decade. I have recommended Levy to friends in Acton and Concord and everyone has been pleased with the quality of his work. Levy is professional, honest, dependable, meticulous and fairly priced. In 2015 Freire Painting, prepared the exterior surface of our home for paint. They are capable of making required carpentry repairs and preparing surfaces to best hold paint and preserve the paint job for years to come.
