HOW TO CHOOSE EXTERIOR PAINT COLOR FOR YOUR HOME Madison Ct

The exterior color of your home is an expression of your personal style! Painting or staining your home is also the best way to protect your siding and trim from the elements.   How long a paint or stain job can protect your home totally depends on the quality of materials and how the materials are applied to the siding and trim.  We wrote this article HOW TO CHOOSE EXTERIOR PAINT COLOR FOR YOUR HOME Madison Ct  to help you with this.

There are some great LOW-VOC exterior stains and paints now available using new technology that stands the test of time and elements better then the brands that have been on the market for years! There is Aura exterior paint, Arborcoat waterborne exterior stain to name a few.

A few things to consider when picking an outside color:

1. Your driveway, the chimney and the roof should play a role in deciding a color. If you choose a color that has similar shades in the roof, chimney and driveway, it will add harmony to the entire property, and also give a feeling of spaciousness.

2. If you have stone work on the house or a stone fence, using a color that blends with the stone work will give a sense on continuity and beauty.

3. If your home is in the west coast where there are a lot of terra-cotta roofs, picking a soft neutral color will help even out the intense color of the terra-cotta and bring more visual harmony to the entire look and a softness.

4. If you belong in a community or houses that are close together, you might consider choosing a color palate that is compatible with the homes in your neighborhood.  The color does not need to be the same, just a color that goes with the general scheme in your area.

5.  Landscaping also has an impact on the overall look.  If you have a brilliant display of colors around the yard, you might go with a soft color to offset the beautiful intensity of the garden, or if you have a subdued garden, you can choose a louder house color!

6. I would encourage you to choose a white or very very light color for the trim.  Choosing a trim color that is different from the siding color can be tricky.  It can make your home look smaller and also force your eyes to just see the trim and not the entire home.

7. Use the doors as another way to add a pop of color to your home. It’s not such a big amount of color that it overtakes your home, it’s just enough to add a little fun and kick!

If you are meeting with a contractor, they should be able to give helpful tips.  It’s also a good idea to go to your local paint center and get a bunch of color choices and put them on the house so you can see the color throughout the day as the light changes.

WHY USE NON-TOXIC PAINTS?

First, the bad news:
Indoor air is three times more polluted than outdoor air!  According to the EPA our indoor air is listed as one of the top 5 hazards to our health!  A good start to reduce the level of pollution in our indoor air is the type of paint that you have on your walls, doors and trim.
Painting products and finishes are among the leading causes of indoor air pollution!   After you have painted your home, the paints and the finishes continue to release low level toxic emissions into your breathing air for years after the application!  The source of these toxins is VOC’s (Variety of volitile organic compounds) which until recently were essential to the performance of paint.
Now, the good news!
Painting manufactures have caught on and there are many brands out there that offer No Voc based paint.
Benjamin Moore has Pristine Eco Spec and Sherwin Williams has Harmony. These are just a few, if you have a favorite paint brand that you are used to using, chances are they offer a No Voc line of paint and finishes!  These brands are high quality, better for your health and cost effective!
Remember to open a few windows and doors at the end of the day if you have been painting, even for a few minutes will help freshen the air!
