Below are some frequently asked questions our exterior painters are asked prior to starting:

When Can I Paint the Exterior of my House?


Ideal weather conditions for exterior home painting are 70°F and partly sunny, however paint will cure and dry at temperatures as low as 35°F. To preserve a prompt, quality result, our professional exterior painters will suspend outdoor work if there is a 50% or greater chance of rain in the forecast. We select premium paint for all jobs, however we are always willing to discuss your preferred brands.

How Should I Pick my Exterior Paint Color?


There are a number of factors that go into picking an exterior paint color, but we find these tips critical:

- The more colors you add, the more expensive it will be. Unless you have a "grand" vision on how all those colors will work, keep it simple with a single base color and a single trim color.

- Pay attention to the neighbors. Choosing a clashing color will only cause arguments, and if your neighbors are trees, then be careful about the shade of color you use. Paint looks darker on houses in wooded lots and if you have a lot of shrubbery, avoid choosing green.

-Look at the color elements that will stay the same, including shingles and brick.

-If you live in a warm climate, bright colors will wash out with time, which can actually have a desired effect. Bright colors will stay bright longer in cooler climates, which can make your house stand out more from others in the neighborhood.

Should you have additional exterior painting questions, ask the experts at ProTect Painters. We partner with top painting companies, like Sherwin-Williams, Behr and Benjamin Moore who help us stay on top of the latest painting news, trends and techniques.
