Let the world see your style and personality. A number of elements should be involved in selecting your exterior colour scheme.
Selecting my colour palette
There are a few elements that should be involved in your decision process.
Using similar colour intensities unifies the community. Building materials used on your home are a big part of your overall colour story. Your roof is a prominent colour. Your home’s architectural style can also help define your colour choices. Climate conditions and the degree of sunlight your home is exposed to might also affect the colours you’re considering using. Landscaping around your home contributes colour which affects the appearance, also house colours around your neighbourhood can offer ideas you may not have imagined.
It’s important to fix and prep problem areas before you begin to paint:
- Look around the house for any soft or rotting wood, especially around windows and doors. You will need to replace it with new wood prior to painting.
- Fill cracks and holes but don’t over do it. Filler is not suitable for repairing large holes; rather, it is best used for sealing the spaces between window frames and siding. Follow all manufacturer directions before applying Pascol Sunscreen paint.
