House Painting and Paint Colors

House Painting with Exterior Colors

A sense of style and design are needed when choosing the exterior house paint colors for your home. Paint colors for the body, trim, and ascents can increase the sense of pride and even the homes value. It is as important as the original architector and landscaping in making your home attractive. And, of course, your neighbors and passers by will thank you as well.

Not all paint colors keep their original color as well as others when exposed to sunlight and harsh weather. Paint is meant to protect your home from the sun and choosing the right color can add years to the endurance of the paint job.

When considering durability when battling UV light, the best exterior colors are neutral to medium. Beige or light to medium browns cover over old paint or stain well and have a better resistance to ultra violet light. Bolder colors like reds and yellows will require multiple coats to cover and will oxidize faster.
