SELECTING PAINT

How to Select Paint - Exterior House Painting

Selecting exterior paint is a very personal choice for most people. Many factors need to be considered when it comes to exterior house painting. And with so many colors of paint available, choosing a color can feel like an impossible task.

We will help you choose the type of paint that will work on the surface of your exterior. Vinyl, brick, wood and fiber-cement siding all have paints that work better or worse on them. Understanding what works best often comes from experience. The same is true for painting stucco finishes.

When selecting a paint color for your exterior many factors can come into play. Homeowners need to consider any homeowners association rules that would affect the color choice. Many Aurora homeowners will have their home repainted the same color, or a color very similar. That is the easy and safe decision.

Others will look for a more dramatic impact in a house painting project. If that's you, you should be sure to consider:

  • Other houses in the neighborhood. Most homeowners don't want to pick a color that sticks out as inappropriate.
  • What colors would fit with the original style and era of your home?
  • Are you painting everything on the exterior of your home (doors, shudders, etc.) or just the walls?

That third question is a big one. It can be difficult for Aurora area homeowners to picture how the new color will be affected by its surroundings. It's one thing to hold a paint swatch up and a completely different thing when that color is painted on the entire house.

Other Surfaces

Selecting paint or stain for the other surfaces inside or outside your home, office building or rental property can be just as challenging. While the designers on television can make creating a unified look seem easy, at Aurora Painters we know it can be much harder in reality. When you work with us, we'll rely on our knowledge, expertise and experience to help you select the paint, stain or other finish that will work best for you.

  • The team was professional, clean, friendly, and very talented! I cannot say enough positive things about the end results. They painted the entire interior of our home, including a 35 foot entry way, as well as the entire exterior of our home. The did detailed trim and window painting as well. We will definitely use them for additional projects.

  • We had a small window of time to paint our entire downstairs and part of upstairs before we moved in. Eric went above and beyond to get it done and be readily available. He was very thorough and professional. His prices were also the best, as we received quotes from several painting company's. We will definitely be using Aurora Painters for all of our future painting needs.

  • Aurora Painters painted my condo - interior - bedroom and kitchen. I could not be happier with the results. Eric is a master painter with nearly 30 years experience. He uses high quality painting products and is very meticulous with his work. The lines are completely straight between the walls and ceiling which typically comes from years of experience. Not only is he an exceptional painter, he is really good with color selection. I had initially chosen some color for the bedroom and he would tell me his opinion on the color, light, etc. He did this with both the bedroom and the kitchen. I credit him for choosing the color and both rooms turned out amazing. I'd highly recommend Aurora Painters for your next project, no matter how big or small. The quality, the products used and the professional experience is top notch. If you want cheap & lots of headaches, then go with a big company, but if you want a smooth process with exceptional results that only increase your home's value, then call Eric at Aurora Painters.

  • Excellent job from start to finish. A custom job for a custom house. All aspects of the job were completed professionally and in a timely manner. The paint and stain finishes were truly deserving of an A+.
    -Daryl G.

  • Eric came to our rescue! Gave an honest estimate and timeframe and delivered an excellent job under cost and time. Dependable, professional, and respectful! Very nice lines and was clean throughout the day. I finally found a "professional" that I trust.
    -Jeff R.

  • Painted the exterior of our home. Excellent finished product. Did all the prep work, kept a clean work area, cleaned up at the end of each day and put an excellent paint coating. Will use him again.
    -Eily S.

  • I needed someone to finish up the paint job I had already started in my house and Eric came to help. I did not have the ladder needed to get up into my lofted ceiling. Eric took care of it (on stairs nun the less).We were very happy with the job and with Eric. Very professional and easy to get along with. He even went out of his way to patch some holes in the walls that the previous owner had cut in them. On the last day he knew how bad I needed the job done, went to another job and came back at 630 and stayed until 8 to make sure everything was finished. Very pleased with the work and will be calling them again for any of my painting needs. Once again thank you Eric for all that you have done.
    -Kiley E.

  • We had Eric come out and paint our house and they did a awesome job! They took there time, polite and on time everyday and always cleaned up after themselves....Very happy! Will have them come back when needed.
