The exterior of your home is the first impression you make. A chipped, faded paint job can detract from your home’s beauty and value. But fear not! A fresh coat of paint can breathe new life into your house, boosting curb appeal and creating a welcoming atmosphere.

Here at Service Doctor, we’re passionate about helping homeowners transform their exteriors. This blog is your one-stop shop for everything exterior painting, from choosing the right colors to navigating the painting process itself.

Choosing Your Color Palette: Beyond Just Beige

A fresh coat of paint is an opportunity to express your style! Here are some tips for selecting the perfect exterior colors:

  • Consider Your Home’s Architecture: Certain color palettes complement different architectural styles. For instance, a Victorian home might suit a bolder color scheme, while a mid-century modern dwelling might look best with clean lines and neutral tones.
  • Think About Your Neighborhood: While you want your home to stand out, it’s also good to consider the overall aesthetic of your neighborhood.
  • Don’t Forget About the Trim!: The color of your trim can significantly impact the overall look. Consider contrasting colors for a dramatic effect or complementary shades for a cohesive feel.
  • Sample, Sample, Sample! Paint colors can look very different depending on the lighting and shadows on your home. It’s crucial to test paint samples on your actual exterior walls at different times of the day.

Once you’ve chosen your colors, here’s a glimpse into the exterior painting process:
