How to choose your best exterior paint.

  1. 1. Breakthroughs in paint technology provide a wealth of new exterior paints and stains that are eco-friendly, have low-VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) and withstand the tests of time. Shop for the following qualities:  Mold & Mildew Resistant  Environmentally Friendly  Resists Fading  Tolerates Ultraviolet Radiation  Easy to Apply & Clean Up
  2. 2. What color would you like to come home to every day? A “new coat of paint” can be absolutely transforming! That’s exactly why choosing the right color can be so tough. Look first to the colors that you like the most. What color would go well around your home? Think about the things that won’t be painted, like chimneys, roofs and steps. Choose a similar color that compliments existing stone work to promote visual continuity. For stronger colors, try a neutral shade of paint. What type of landscaping do you have? Consider choosing an exterior color that goes well with trees, shrubbery and flowers surrounding your house. Does your neighborhood have a color scheme? The last thing you want to be is monochromatic to every house on the block or, stick out like a sore thumb. Create an individual touch that fits well within your neighborhood’s scheme.
  3. 3. Choose your exterior paint based on the quality, not price.  Look for paint that withstands a host of wear and weather elements.  Pick preferred colors that will compliment the outside of your home. If you choose to work with professionals, (highly recommended for exterior work), examine their service records and review sample projects when getting estimates. Contact info@fortunerestoration.com
