Choosing an exterior paint palette as a homeowner is quite a commitment. Especially when you factor in choosing a shade that will keep your Arizona home cool, finding a paint that is compatible with your medium, and determining the best color combinations. Luckily, you don’t have to navigate these decisions alone! Our painting contractors in Phoenix, AZ will be there every step of the way for the best results possible.
Make sure you have covered all your bases when it comes to selecting the perfect paint color for the exterior of your Arizona abode. We have compiled a list of the top things to consider when starting on a residential painting project.
Be mindful of your medium.
What is a medium exactly? The medium is the material being painted over by our contractors (brick, wood, stucco, etc.). Be sure to have a discussion with our house painters about what kind of paint will be compatible with your home’s structure and have the strongest staying power. Our team is knowledgeable about what formulas complement and preserve any home material.
Beat the heat with your color selection.
Believe it or not, your exterior paint color has a considerable effect on the temperature of your house. Phoenix homeowners should consider lighter paint shades since they absorb less heat! The paints we use are high-quality and are made to withstand Arizona sun exposure even through record-hot summers. Since Arizona is notorious for its weather, Metzger’s Painting has taken every aspect of AZ living into consideration when selecting paint formulas and processes for the exterior of your home.
Consider your architecture and environment.
When it comes to architecture, choosing the wrong color palette will ruin the look of your home, rather than complementing it. Our team of expert house painters will point you in the right direction to enhance the existing aesthetic of your home. Taking the location of your home into consideration is also important when choosing your palette. Metzger’s Painting will look at the position of your house, how much light the exterior receives and the colors of surrounding buildings to come up with the best color story.
Be aware of your neighborhood’s HOA.
Arizona neighborhoods often have a Homeowner’s Association, known as the HOA, in place that makes and enforces rules for the properties and their residents. Often, these rules will include restrictions on paint colors. Many HOAs will gladly accept a request for an exterior paint alteration, others will resist. Make sure you are researching your neighborhood’s HOA before starting on your painting project!
