Painting your home’s exterior from time to time is a great way to keep it looking great and to minimize the need for repair work. Paint can improve curb appeal, but it also has protective properties because it actually can seal the trim, siding and more. In general, homes should be repainted every ten years to maintain its curb appeal. If your home is due for a touchup, know that you should carefully consider the color of paint you want applied. Choosing the wrong shade of paint can decrease the curb appeal of a home. Before you have a residential painting contractor in Suwanee arrive at your home to begin the project, make sure you take the time to select the right paint color.

There’s a good number of Americans out there who don’t seem to be fans of painting rooms in vivid colors, mainly because they believe that modern trends make it seem inappropriate (and that their homes’ architecture doesn’t allow for compatibility). For interior designer Susan Sargent, this is total bogus: she claims that all iterations of American architecture have welcomed vivid colors, evidenced by blue-hued Colonial Revival hearths to teal palettes of Craftsman bungalows. Simply put, nothing screams “you” better than colors, which makes them an ideal component of decorating a home’s interior according to your whim. Yet, it’s not exactly the easiest task out there. Provided that you’re convinced to hire a local residential painting service in Suwanee, GA, you’ll need to establish your desired color panel first before having the professional painter apply his touches.

A fresh coat of paint can help your old home look like it’s brand new.

Everyone has their own preference for house architecture styles. Some like their houses built with wood and/or concrete, but there are those who like brick houses for a variety of reasons. Painting over brick, however, is another matter, but can produce wonderful results when done properly, Kelly Roberson wrote for Better Homes and Gardens. The mysticism and wonder of brick houses may not be that far off from the minds of residents in Suwanee, Georgia. A casual check of the property listings right in the city reveal many hits on three-side brick homes, with a considerable number being two-story structures. You can even remember the tale of the Three Little Pigs and how the Third Pig’s sturdy brick house ended the Big Bad Wolf’s huff and puff aggression. When you want your house to be in colors that make it a pleasure to look at, professionals who provide residential painting services like Proactive Residential are ready to apply the coats.

Aside from ruining its structural makeup, the most frustrating thing water damage can do to a home would be the unsightly bulges, blisters, and cracks damaging the once blemish-free drywall. Hideous molds setting up shop are a bonus. The culprit comes in many faces, too: ice dam, plumbing leaks, and holed roofs, as well as drips penetrating the walling over time, resulting to stains, which can’t be concealed by regular Suwanee house painting. Sheetrock is another term for drywall because it’s made of compressed gypsum, wrapped only with a thick paper facing. Since gypsum is a very soft rock, the drywall becomes spongy as it absorbs wetness over time. Eventually, water pooling within the gypsum will make itself known by seeping under and manifesting on the painted paper face. Dry walls in damp areas such as the bathrooms are more prone to moisture damage than areas exposed to open air.

Choosing the Right Colors Before calling a painter to coat the walls of your home, you might want to familiarize yourself with basic color tips.

People may think that choosing a color is all a matter of preference; however, it is actually a lot more complicated than that. For your house’s exterior, note that your choice can be influenced by several factors, including the colors of your neighboring houses, the type of image you want to present, and what sections you want to emphasize. Usually, a pair of complementing colors should be chosen, with one being the main color and the other as the accent. A professional Suwanee house painter would be able to suggest what paints can get the effect that you want. Furthermore, outdoor jobs should consider the durability of the paint; oil-based paints can handle a lot of weather exposure while latex is easier to work with and can be just as durable.

The most logical starting point would be the walls.

To ensure the best results, this job is best left to a pro from a local Suwanee residential painting company such as Proactive Residential. After setting the overall tone of the room with a nice selection of colors, it’s time to go personal.
