Platinum Pro Painters (http://www.PlatinumProPainters.com) is offering its expert opinion on how homeowners should go about selecting the best exterior paint colours for their home.
“There’s a lot to consider when deciding on what colour to paint the outside of a home,” says Todd Lacroix, president of Platinum Pro Painters. “Homeowners need to think about the dominant weather pattern, the fixed elements of the home, and even what colours their neighbours are using for exterior painting. All of that matters.”
Though Lacroix admits it can be daunting, he encourages homeowners to break down all considerations one step at a time and prioritize. The fixed elements in a home are partly why the owners purchased it in the first place, so finding a colour that flows well with the roof, brick, or stonework should be a priority in choosing an exterior painting colour.
“The immediate surrounding is another exterior paint factor for homeowners,” he adds. “Gardens or walkways can be either blended or contrasted by the paint colour, with the home acting as a backdrop to the immediate area.”
One thing homeowners may not realize, Lacroix notes, is that other homes in the neighbourhood should be a consideration. If the home is part of a cul-de-sac or on a street lined with similar homes with subtle colours, then it might be a good idea not to stray to far from the status quo. That’s not to say that homeowners can’t be original; it just means that on a street where the homes are painted in warm colours, it may be a bad idea to use dark red.
“Hiring a exterior painting company in Toronto that understands all of these nuances is one way to eliminate much of the stress of figuring out how to make all of these factors work in the homeowner’s favour,” Lacroix concludes. “Platinum Pro Painters has the experience to ensure the exterior paint on a home is able to reflect the personality of the homeowner without intruding on the feel of the neighbourhood.”
