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 Surprise 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 Surprise 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 Success Painting we know it can be much harder in reality.

-Sue H.

I just had the exterior of my house painted by Success Painting. I got a good, fair quote from the owner/manager Paul. I had gotten four quotes and decided to go with them. My main reason was because I felt very comfortable working with Paul. He was very personable and I felt I could trust him and his team. His crew that actually did the work were all very respectful and nice. That is important to me. I pointed out a few things to the guys and they handled them right away, which I liked. They take customer satisfaction serious. My house looks beautiful. They did quality workmanship and I could not be happier. I know in the future I will need some interior work and I plan to use them again. I would not hesitate to recommend them to my friends. It was a job well done!!!


-Patrice D.

Paul and his crew were AMAZING!! From the start, Paul was very detail oriented and noted in writing everything that was going to be done. He was professional and offered a very fair price. The crew was so nice and easy to work with. My gate was even painted too! They were extremely neat and clean and I cannot wait to recommend them to my Real Estate clients. Anyone that knows me knows that I am picky so my hats off to this company...Success Painting! Great Job!!
