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 Maple Grove 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 Maple Grove 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 Blue Eagle Painting Inc. 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.

  • Dan and his team did an amazing job painting our window trim, window sashes, door trim, and baseboards (painted from wood color to white). It looks perfect! Fantastic quality and a great price for the work. We are extremely happy with the finished product and will hire Blue Eagle Painting again for our future painting needs.

  • Very happy with Dan and his team!!! Dan came out within a day of my call to assess project and give a quote. Easy to work with and we couldn't be more in love with our kitchen cabinets!

  • Excellent customer service with great attention to detail. Hired to remove textured ceiling, paint kitchen cabinets and walls after install of new floors. Floors were not damaged and the kitchen looks like a brand new one! Would hire again in a minute.

  • Couldn't be happier with the work done by Dan and his team!

  • Dan is both very professional and very funny. He helped me pick out a color to cover up a living room covered with a deep burgundy purple which I truly despised. I just relocated to Minneapolis from San Diego and wanted to replicate the color scheme of my former home. Dan and his crew gave me an excellent quote, especially with respect to other quotes. One company sent someone who only wrote his quote on a piece of binder paper--and it was twice the amount quoted by Dan. The second quote was just a little above Dan's but the person that was sent to give the quote lacked any personable skills. The paint job was exceptionally well done. They showed up right on time and finished at the promised time.I will be using Blue Eagle Painting for all my paint needs. FYI--I know there's a lot of painters in the area and for the most part they all do a good job. I strongly recommend Blue Eagle Painting, and if you do, post a yelp comment.
