HOW TO SELECT EXTERIOR 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 Boston 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 Boston 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 Motti Painting Solutions 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.

what our customers say

The Motti crew did a job for the house down the street. I was so impressed that I called and eventually hired them to clean and paint our front porch. At the beginning they sent a clear and comprehensive statement of work, the crew then began on time, and the job was clean and outstanding at the end. I hired them this year to do three sides of the house. The crew was thorough and helpful. And they seemed to take their work seriously with joy and with pride.

Motti Painting Solutions recently completed a superb exterior painting job for us. First, they power washed the house, sanded, scrapped and caulked wherever needed. They painted our newly built porch, several sections of the house siding, all the detailed trim work, gutters and downspouts. They applied one full coat of primer and two coats of exterior paint. The crew replaced some complicated rotted trim. Their work was outstanding! The workers were meticulous, professional, polite, quiet and dependable. They worked diligently every day for 11 hours. They cleaned up all debris, materials, and equipment daily. Motti's prices were very fair and very reasonable for such high-quality workmanship which came with a 3 year warranty. We highly recommend Motti Painting Solutions for all your painting needs. We wouldn't hesitate to hire them again.

Motti Painting did an amazing job painting the exterior of our house. They are professional and fast and incredibly neat. They are also super responsive and very flexible. When we decided to paint our house, we wanted to do it right away, and they were there within a week of finalizing their proposal. They came every day unless it was raining and left the site really clean and tidy. Whenever they missed a day due to weather, they stayed longer the next day to stay on schedule. We would use them again in a second - we are very happy with the work they did!

Motti Painting solved our decades old problem of trying to keep paint on our 80 year old house. Their crew removed the old paint, made repairs, and added a beautiful colored stain finish that made the house look new again. They kept a clean job sight and started and finished the job promptly. Daniel Motti runs a good business, listens carefully , and is committed to customer service and satisfaction. We have hired Motti Painting again for additional work and highly recommend them.

Daniel and crew were great, and came recommended by a friend who has used them twice. Communicative, flexible, and paid a lot of attention to detail. My neighbors painted their house in 2 days, which was what I thought - painting is super quick. But Daniel and crew do a great job in prepping (scraping paint and fixing wood work), and several rounds of primer and finished coat. They were here for two weeks (10 hours days!) and folks on the whole street have commented about their professionalism and about the finished product. I'd highly recommend reaching out to them. They won't be the cheapst, but they just might be the best.
