Exterior House Painting Bloomington
When the paint on your home’s exterior begins to peel, you know it’s time to hire professional painters. Painting a home’s exterior can be a DIY project for some, but if you want a good job that will last, it’s best to hire the pros. They have the equipment and experience to get the job done right. Plus, it will save you endless hours of work that you’d most likely want to spend doing something else.
For professional exterior house painting in Bloomington and surrounding areas, you can count on Durapro Painting. We have years of experience painting the outside of homes, and we can make sure your home gets the best care and paint job possible.
When it comes to exterior house painting, prep work is key. We will remove any loose paint, dirt and debris from the house before adding fresh paint (typically two coats). We can do as much or as little that needs painting. If just the trim and shutters need paint, we’ll do those. If all the siding and trim needs painted, we’ll get everything done in a timely manner.
Choosing Exterior Paint Colors
When it comes to painting the exterior of your home, you have many options for colors. You can stick with the original color or you can change things up. If you decide to pick new colors for your home, here are some things to keep in mind.
Consider surrounding landscaping
If you have ornamental or colorful trees, shrubbery or flowers around your house, you should include their colors into the color scheme selection. These landscaping attributes will have an effect on how appealing the property is as a whole, even if just for the spring and summer months. If you’re property has a lot of trees, these can cast shadows on a home, making it appear darker. So, you may want to avoid painting the home a darker color.
Consider colors on the home you cannot change
There are permanent features of a home that have their own colors which cannot be changed with paint. Roofing shingles, stone veneer, concrete surfaces and paving blocks are a few examples of features you won’t paint. So, you need to consider their color when choosing the paint color for the rest of the house.
Accentuate attractive details
Every home has attractive details that can be accentuated for greater visual appeal. Entryways, doors, windows, shutters and other details can be painted to make their design noticeable. A current trend is to paint the entry door a bright color. Whether you choose to go bold or classic, just be sure all your colors complement each other.
Picking the exterior paint colors is a big decision. You don’t want to paint the entire house only to decide you don’t like the look. There are online resources homeowners can use to create a virtual photo of their home with varying colors. Our team can also help with color selection. We’ve been doing this job for a long time, so we are familiar with color schemes that work well.
