Exterior Paint for Curb Appeal
If the home is starting to look a little bit old or the paint is a little worse for the wear due to the weather, it’s time to think about new exterior paint. The right shade can make a huge difference in how the house looks and can boost the curb appeal of the home. Right now, bold colors are in, as are natural colors like a deep gray or sage green. Other popular colors include a barn red or a dark blue. No matter what color is chosen, always choose a trim that’s going to look great. With darker exterior colors, choose a white trim to help it stand out.
The professional staff at Chesterfield Painters has years of experience in the Richmond area with exterior painting and would be glad to assist you in making the best color choices.
What Prep Work Needs to be Done
Pressure washing the outside of the house before painting will get all the surfaces clean and free of dirt and debris that can cause imperfections in the new paint job. Additionally a careful look at all the surfaces to identify any holes or other imperfections that should be filled or scraped away will insure the surface is prepped properly for the new coats of paint.
Also take a close look around door and window frames for any gaps that may have appeared over time, possibly due to weather-induced shrinking and swelling of the wood. These should be filled with a good outdoor caulk to fill the holes and make a smooth surface for painting over.
If the new color is different than the existing one, a coat of primer should be applied to provide a good smooth base on which to apply the new paint.
