What type of paint is best for exterior painting?
The three types of paint commonly used for exterior painting are acrylic, latex, and oil-based. Both acrylic and latex are our preferred options, as they can handle temperature fluctuations, which is important when you are investing in an outdoor project. Plus, they do not release hazardous fumes like oil-based options. While oil-based paints are considered safe for outdoor projects, we still strongly recommend going with acrylic or latex.
How do I pick the right paint color for my home?
Choosing the right color depends on several factors. First, what style of home do you have? Is it full of odd structural quirks that make it charming and whimsical? Is it sleek and modern? It is old-fashioned? Does it give off European vibes? If your home is more modern, bold, simple colors like black and white are best. A more quirky home can get away with fun colors like blue, yellow, green, red, and many more. European homes do well with warm, rich colors.
Another thing you need to consider when picking out a color for your home is what your landscaping and lawn decorations look like. Do you have a certain theme going? Maybe you have a lot of nautical knick-knacks. Or perhaps you have a lot of nature-themed decor and impressive topiaries. Let your design for your yard inspire the design for your home’s exterior. That way, everything matches.
How long does exterior paint take to dry?
Typically, exterior paint dries within a few hours of the project being complete. But just because your paint is dry to the touch does not mean it is fully cured. It can take up to a month for paint to fully cure. Thus, you should always make sure to plan painting projects during months when rainy, stormy weather is not an issue. It is better to start projects in a dry season if possible.
