If you want to sell your house, or you just want to up your home’s ‘curb appeal’, the exterior of your house can make all the difference. House painting in New Jersey requires more attention to detail and finesse than most give credit for, so you want yours done right. As the leading painting contractors in Rahway, NJ, A3 Contracting LLC has compiled this list of tips and tricks to ensure your house stands out and looks good while doing so:
- Plan around Your Permanent Fixtures
Rooftop shingles, stone walkways, your garden, and your driveway are set fixtures. Unless you plan on doing a complete revamp of your home, you want your contracting company to take these into consideration. Undertones in these fixtures will likely decide your palette, as you want to compliment them.
- Consider the Architectural Style of Your Home
Your exterior paint job should complement the style of your home. Classic homes painted in orange and other such design choices are jarring and symptomatic of a contracting company that doesn’t take into consideration the ‘feel’ of your home.
- Consider the Effect You Want Your Home to Have
Is your home obscured by trees? Or does it sit far back from the road? You might want to choose a brighter color to make it more prominent. Darker or more neutral tones will make your home recede.
- Choose Three Or More Shades
The home palette is divided into field, accent, and trim colors:
- Field colors dominate,
- Accent colors are used for doors and shutters, and
- Trim colors are used on features such as the roof edging and door casings.
A trim color should ideally contrast the field color of your home.
- Never Rely on Paint Chips
Shades can vary significantly from what appears on the chip. Buy a quart and test it on part of your home to get an idea of what the finished product will look like.
