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 Sumter 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 Sumter 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 Meticulous Services 4U, LLC 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.

The team was very thorough and made sure that the job was done well. In addition to power washing my house, they did an EXCELLENT job at power washing my screened in back porch which was absolutely filthy as a result of the flood. The job took longer than I anticipated, and it would have been nice to have been told upfront that the project would span across two days. Other than that, I was very pleased with the results.

This company is first and foremost, is veteran owned. We were in a bind of getting our home touched up before PCSing and placing it on the market. What caused us to go with this company other than the fact it is veteran owned was when speaking about price and payment, the owner told us "I don't want any money from you until you are satisfied with the work done." You hardly ever find that type of ethics now days. A lot of people, especially in the Sumter area, all about getting your money and end up giving you a piss poor product. My home looks brand new and I would buy it again if I saw it (kind of sad we have to sell it). You won't be disappointed with the services you receive and the price was far better than anyone else we spoke to and other companies wanted the money either upfront or half upfront. Very professional and courteous. I've had my far share of bad run ins with contractors in this area...from being drunk to being on drugs while working....if I'm ever stationed at Shaw again and need their services I will be going back to them. They also manicured my lawn to give it more curb appeal. Thank you!
