How to Choose Paint Color for the Exterior of Your House

Exterior house painting can dramatically improve your home’s curb appeal and add value to your house. For most homeowners the process of choosing exterior paint colors can be one of the most difficult, time-consuming aspects of the entire project. The challenge is allowing your personality to shine through your exterior paint color while increasing or retaining curb appeal.

Choosing your exterior paint color is often complicated due to neighborhood constraints such as a homeowners association. Certain colors may not be allowed under the homeowners guide, so it is important that you review your homeowners guide and get your color approved before getting your exterior paint job underway. Homeowners associations make these rules and color choices so that the neighborhood blends well and that your particular paint color doesn’t effect the resale on one of your neighbors home.

Also, check the durability of your paint color before getting started. Certain colors such as red and blue are more susceptible to UV light and do not hold up well overtime. Beige and light brown are your best bets for durability.
