How to Choose the Best Paint Colors For Your Home

Do you need help deciding what color to paint your home’s exterior? Here’s a guide on choosing the best paint colors for your home.

Keyword(s): paint colors

Feeling bored with the way the exterior of your home looks? Considering a change?

When it comes to the exterior of your property, first impressions are everything. However, sometimes a lick of paint can be just the thing to change the look of your house.

With so many choices available to you, it can be a daunting task deciding which paint colors to choose for your home.

With any luck, after reading this article, you’ll have a better idea of how to choose the best paint colors for your home.

Choosing Paint Colors: Where To Start

Different paint colors send different messages. First and foremost, you need to establish what you want that message to be when it comes to your home.

With this in mind, there are also a few other things you might want to take into consideration.

Your Neighbourhood

Think about where you live. How many houses do you see in your neighborhood painted bright pink or yellow? While in warmer climates like this might be more common, you may look a little out of place in colder climates.

That being said, if you’re looking to stand out from the crowd, this might be just what you want! However, you also don’t want to clash with and potentially fall out with your neighbors for sticking out like a sore thumb.

Still, considering the natural surroundings of where you live is a big part of choosing the exterior paint color of your home.

In climates where there’s a lot of sun, consider that this may wash out certain paint colors.

Permanent Features of Your Home

If you’re only planning on changing the exterior paintwork of your home, you’ll want to consider how the paint color you choose will look alongside the other permanent features of your home.

If you have decking, consider how the exterior paint color you choose will complement the wood. Similarly, consider your roof tiles, driveway, and any stonework on landscaping in your yard.

The colors of these permanent features might influence your color decisions. Your paint color decision may be influenced by whether the permanent features of your home have cold or warm undertones, to avoid any color clashing.

Grays, blues, taupes, and blacks will go better with a cooler paint color. On the other hand, browns, beiges, red bricks and rust colors will suit a warmer tone.

When considering your exterior paint colors, make sure they will match accordingly with your home’s unchanging structural details.

Most importantly, don’t think of these details as limitations, think of them as a guide.

Architecture

This goes hand in hand with considering the features that make up the exterior of your home.

A more traditional looking home with classic architecture might look better with more typical colors. The more classical architecture also tends to work better with darker colors.

However, more modern architecture, often defined by its unusual shapes, open spaces and open-plan, brightly lit rooms may look better with brighter colors. A house with lots of windows to let light in would benefit from a bright exterior paint color to match.

Darker Paint Colors Vs Lighter Paint Colors

Both light and dark paint colors have their pros and cons. Let’s get into some of those together.

Color Tricks

Simple color tricks can fool the eye into making things look different in scale than what they actually are.

Larger properties with small plots of land often look more condensed when painted with darker colors. It tidies them up, while also making them stand out boldly.

Alternatively, if you have a larger plot of land you don’t want your landscaping and gardens to overpower and dwarf your home. In this instance, lighter colors such as white or beige will make a smaller house stand out and appear bigger.

Accentuating Style

Accentuating and embracing the stylistic features of your home using paint colors can lead to successful results.

For example, if your house has some impressive history, and traditional stonework or features characteristic of a certain era, play it up!

Look into the history of your home and research what kind of colors were popular at the time it was built. Let the exterior of your home embody its personal heritage.

It’s also a good idea to identify your interior home decor style and see how it fits with the exterior of your house.

Variety Is The Spice Of Life

With such a wide variety of paint colors available to choose from, don’t be afraid to branch out and try something new.

However, also don’t be afraid of sticking to something more simple if that’s what would genuinely make your house look better.

Don’t fear bright colors, but also don’t be put off by painting your home white or beige. White, like all lighter colors, can make your home appear larger. It works even better in warm climates, too, as it rebuffs UV rays.

White is also a very versatile color, able to project sterile modernity, as well as stately elegance, depending on the style of the home.

Swatch and Test

Before committing, make sure to swatch and test different colors. All of our services offer a free color consultation to help you make sure you’ve made the right choice.

Equally, our paint suppliers listed below would be more than happy to help you make your choice if you’re having a hard time.

When swatching your colors, consider the ‘base’, ‘middle’, and ‘top’ of your home. These layers mean you’ll be dealing with a color scheme rather than one block color.

The advantage to this is that the color of the accents and trims of your home will make the dominant base color or ‘field color’ of your home really pop.

Trim and accent colors can be found on door and window frames, as well as the shutters and doors themselves. These colors are important to help frame your main house color, creating a clean, crisp and tidy look.

Generally speaking, darker accents and trims go better with a light base color. However, be sure to check with your color consultant because each house has its own unique style.

How Much Does Cabinet Refinishing Cost?

How much does cabinet refinishing cost? Here’s what you can expect price-wise when it comes to refinishing your cabinets.

If you’d like to give your cabinets a face-lift without having them replaced, you’ve got options that don’t involve a tear-out. Refinishing your cabinets is one of them. The cabinet refinishing cost is much lower than a complete remodel.

During the cabinet refinishing process, all old paint, stain, and varnish are removed and the newly exposed bare wood is repaired and refinished. It’s a cost-effective repair that gives new life to an existing structure.

Your cabinets might be good candidates for refinishing. Read on to learn more about cabinet refinishing cost and the process itself.

What is the Process of Cabinet Refinishing?

Refinishing usually involves stripping the existing finish off the surface of your old cabinets. This can be a messy, time consuming task that we like to avoid at Rise Painting. We have options to refinish right over your existing finish! The coatings we apply are durable, factory grade finishes that look amazing and save a ton of time and money.

During the process, the faces of the cabinets and any hardware are removed so that the new finish covers as much of the surface as possible.

Any nicks, dents, scratches, or other damage is then repaired. The surface is then prepared for a new finish.

After repairs and preparation, the cabinets are repainted or stained. When they’re repainted, a primer and then paint are generally used.

With staining, the wood may be sealed, sanded again, and then stained. After the final stain, a varnish or lacquer is then applied.

Easier on the Pocketbook

Refinishing is great choice on a tight budget. It costs far less than other cabinet repairs and replacements because there’s no change to the actual structure of the cabinet boxes or doors.

You can choose an entirely new color of paint or stain for your cabinets. This transforms the look of your kitchen without draining your bank account.

Though it’s a fairly straightforward process, a professional painter will be able to do the best job from start to finish. They’ll be able to thoroughly remove the old finish, fix damage correctly, and apply the new finish properly.

When Should Cabinet Refinishing Be Avoided?

If your cabinets are very old, have structural damage, or were poorly installed in the first place, a replacement may be a better choice than a refinish.

Refinishing can’t cover issues in the actual placement, shape, and stability of your cabinetry.

Different Factors Affect Cabinet Refinishing Cost

If you’re considering refinishing your cabinets, there will be several factors that will affect the final cost of the job.

A professional can assess cabinet condition and can usually give you a price estimate based on the job size, job complexity, cost per hour, and cost of preferred refinishing materials.

Size and Number of Cabinets

The size and number of cabinets you’ll be refinishing will be an important factor when cost is determined.

Larger areas with more cabinets will naturally cost more. The actual size of the cabinets is relevant as well since more cabinets or those with larger surface areas will take longer to refinish.

You can save some money, however, by choosing to paint all of the cabinets with the same type of new finish. You’ll generally be charged more if several cabinets will receive a different finish.

If you have an island or another feature that can be accentuated, an inexpensive option that can drastically improve the look and feel of your kitchen is to refinish those accent pieces alone.

Complexity of the Refinishing Job

The design and style of some cabinetry are more intricate than others. This will affect the cost, as more detailed or difficult to paint styles will require more time and possibly more materials.

Other cabinetry is less complicated to refinish, so the cabinet refinishing cost will most likely be lower. This is especially the case for cabinets with a smooth front.

Preparation Time

Preparation involves quite a few steps, so it’s not always a quick process.

We decide our prep steps based on the current condition and material of your cabinets. Depending on what we find, any previous coats of paint, varnish, or stain may need to be stripped off of the cabinets. Surface imperfections and damage will need to be repaired next. This includes any splintered or broken wood, dents, scratches, and gouges.

Surface Preparation

After damage repair, the entire surface must then be sanded until it’s very smooth and clean. All of this surface preparation ensures that the new finish will adhere to or absorb correctly when applied.

 

Protecting surroundings and prepping kitchen surfaces for cabinet painting

Kitchen Cabinets Being Prepared for Refinishing

Failing to properly prepare a surface can be problematic. A few issues that can arise from improper surface preparation are:

  • An uneven or bumpy look to the newly applied finish
  • A finish that peels off quickly
  • A new color that will not look right over areas where the old color comes through

If your cabinets have more extensive damage, the preparation time may take longer and cost a bit extra. It’s worth the investment of time and money to get a clean, even surface for your new finish.

Refinishing Materials

There are many refinishing materials to choose from when you’re refreshing your cabinetry.

You’ll be able to choose from:

  • Many colors of paint
  • Paint sheen, such as flat, matte, eggshell, satin, and gloss
  • Different types of paint, such as oil or latex
  • Different types and colors of stains
  • Different varnishes

All of these finishes will vary in price depending on brand, finish, and color.

While most of these choices are aesthetic in nature, some involve finish quality. If you choose to save money by using less expensive refinishing materials, it’s likely the finished product will reflect this lack of quality.

Quality Is Worth the Cost

If you’re taking the time and effort to refinish your products, it’s worth investing in the best product possible for durability and visual appeal.

Higher quality finishes can generally withstand exposure to sunlight, water, and wear and tear better than lower quality ones. This is important because you’ll want your new finish to last.

The Final Cabinet Refinishing Cost

After all factors are considered and materials are chosen, you’ll have a good idea of what you’ll be paying for a cabinet refinishing. Most homeowners pay between $2,800 and $3,800 for a refinish job.

This is quite low compared to installing new cabinets, which can run between $15,000 and $45,000 on average.

It’s a money-saver you might consider if you like your cabinetry but would like a bit of an update or a change of color.

Budget Friendly and Immediately Rewarding

Refinishing cabinets can help you improve the look of your home without spending a ton of money.

In a short time, your cabinets will look updated and beautiful.

Understanding the Possible Cost to Paint a House

Painting your house can go along way to improve the overall appeal. But do you know the cost to paint a house? Click here for top insights into painting costs.

Whoever came up with the phrase “making a mountain out of a molehill” probably never spent any time doing home improvements.

Face it, the work expands to fit the time. And no matter how much time you set aside to complete a project, it never feels like enough.

When it comes to understanding the cost to paint a house, the depth of information seems to get ever deeper. Soon enough your house is a kaleidoscope of paint swatches, test strips, and rolls and rolls of masking tape for the plastic drop cloths you still haven’t bought.

You can always hire a professional company to book an estimate, but before you make that call take a moment to learn some essentials about all the components that go into the cost to paint a house.

Cost to Paint a House: Categories

Understanding the breakdown of what goes into the cost to paint a house helps show the value of the end product. Like anything worth investing in, the materials and the end goals play a large part.

The obvious cost categories are supplies and labor. Less obvious costs exist in both of those broad categories. The following breaks down these costs into a checklist of ideas.

Once you understand what each of these categories offers, not only will you be able to understand the costs, but you will see the value behind the numbers as well.

Paint Costs

Paint doesn’t just come in a variety of shades and colors, it also comes in a variety of types. Each type has a different durability and an overall feel in addition to practical applications (cleanability, wear and tear, texture).

  • High Gloss
    • Light-reflecting, easy to clean, very high durability
  • Semi-Gloss
    • Moisture-wicking, easy to clean, high durability
  • Satin
    • warm luster, easy to clean, high durability
  • Eggshell
    • flat (low to no shine), covers imperfections, medium durability
  • Flat or Matte
    • soaks light, richer pigment, medium-low durability

When selecting a shade, painters recommend that dark colors move down a step in sheen to prevent an overly bright effect.

Paint colors have virtually no limit. While many manufacturers put out a variety of pre-mixed and ready to go shades, paint mixers exist to get you any shade you can think of.

New technology in computer imaging has taken this a step further in the last decade. Now you can bring in almost anything with a bit of color on it and the pigment can be analyzed and synthesized. The computers are so smart they can even make adjustments for the final tint if the surface material is known.

Indoor vs Outdoor

Unlike jeans, you don’t want your house to sport the faded look. To this extent, outdoor paint should handle weathering and exposure with grace.

Also unlike jeans, you don’t your house to come pre-adorned with stains and rips. To this extent, interior paint should handle scuffs, abuse, and soiling without needing to be redone every month.

Practical limitations of the two surface types also come into play. Outdoor spaces tend to be larger and flatter, meaning a color that looks great on one wall of a room might become overwhelming across the face of the house.

Interiors can have a lot of nooks and crannies, trim and accent paints can help visitors and family alike from plowing into raised surfaces, pillars, and low overhangs.

How Many Coats?

The number of coats a surface will require to be considered painted is partially based on the type of finish and partially based on the material. More porous materials will eat paint and leave less of the pigment. This will require more coats to achieve an ideal look.

Lighting can also play an important effect on how many coats of paint are needed. Rule of thumb: the brighter the lights, the more likely you will see through the paint to the colors behind.

External paint can require several coats to protect against sunlight.

Sealing the Deal

Sealers do their job best when they work with the paint. Much like primers, sealers help by changing the porousness of the surface. A good seal for the material will accentuate an effect while protecting the paint from some types of damage. A bad seal with obscure the color or the material of the underlying surface.

Seals and primers are an important part of painting, not because they help hold colors, but also because they protect underlying materials. A paint applied to an overly porous surface without a primer may lose details or cause damage.

Labor Costs

Labor is the second category that adds to the cost to paint a house. Labor has two major components, painting and non-painting.

Painting labor makes straightforward sense, if you hire someone to do the painting, they will spend a lot of time with a brush in hand. The largest portion of this cost will be man-hours. However, some of this cost can go into equipment (non-paint supplies).

Exterior painting often utilizes paint sprayers and other machines to cover larger surfaces or to permeate thicker material in fewer overall coats.

Non-Painting Labor

Depending on the painting professionals you want to hire, they may charge a flat fee for non-paint labor, or they might add that into the estimated hours.

Time spent moving furniture, removing fixtures, and taping dropcloths to protect lower surfaces all add in. Just think of anything you wouldn’t want to do as part of painting an area.

For exterior parts of a project, this can also include adjusting for weather conditions or wrapping air intakes for furnaces and air conditioners. Nobody wants paint on their climate control system!

Getting an Estimate

Companies in your area can walk you through their processes and schedule estimates for work. They commonly have different pricing structures for the cost to paint a house exterior versus the interior.

But with the information fleshed out in this article, you’re no doubt in a good position to estimate how much money you’ll need to paint a house.

6 Critical Things to Consider When Searching for House Painting Services

House Painting Services: 6 Critical Things to Consider

Paint cans ready to be used on white background

As a client, you have the right to choose house painting services that meet your specific needs. Here are six things to consider when searching for a painter.

Keyword(s): house painting services

Depending on the climate and the quality of paint you use, you can wait up to 15 years before repainting your home. A new coat of paint every 5-7 years can keep your house looking like the nicest home on your street. If you haven’t hired house painting services, it’s time to start looking.

With all of the options available, it can be challenging to find a good painting company that you can trust.

If you haven’t been able to get the perfect recommendation from a friend or neighbor, you’re left to sift between every name in the phonebook.

Every painter will offer you the world. Rather than take their word for it, here are 6 things to consider to help you narrow down your choices.

1. Find An Insured Painter

You’ll need to find a painter who has a liability insurance plan of at least $1 million. That will cover any problems that arise from their work, from a bucket of latex spilled on your car or ladder damage to your roof. It will also cover any accidents or injuries that any workers incur on your property.

Ask to see certification of their insurance. Any painter who you should consider hiring will be more than happy to share their info if it makes the difference between scoring a client or not.

Should your potential hire act strangely when you ask about their insurance, feel free to move along in your search for house painting services.

2. Do They Hire Contractors or Have Employees?

Find out whether the people they’ll be working with are contracted or permanent employees. It’s common and perfectly understandable for many companies hire contractors. That shouldn’t be the number one deciding factor.

But contractors will need to hold their own insurance. Employees will be covered by their employer’s liability insurance.

The other upside to regular employees is knowing that you’re working with an experienced team. A group of strangers might work perfectly well together. A small company might have a regular set of contractors while they grow their business.

Ask as many questions as you feel comfortable asking your painter.

3. Look At Reviews

Search the internet or ask around for testimonials and reviews. You’ll want to know if they finish on time, whether they do a thorough job, and whether they’re trustworthy.

Some companies will list testimonials on their site. Follow through with them and call up any big clients. If they have good stuff to say, tell your painter when you talk to them. They’ll be happy to know they’re doing a good job and more likely to do the same for you.

Not every online review of house painting services is necessarily worth trusting. Take them all together to get a picture of who you’re dealing with.

Some painters will even offer a warranty. Ask them the details. They’ll likely be proud to tell you about what they offer.

4. Lead Awareness and Cleanup

Your house painting services should be informed about lead scraping and dust cleanup. They should be using HEPA filters with any sanders that they use and be well aware of the risks of scraping up lead paint.

Their willingness to answer will tell you how serious they are about the problem.

Ask if they’re willing to clean up every day. A good painter will understand that you don’t want to come home from a long day at work and climb over scaffolding to a house covered in plastic.

They may need to store some things on site but it shouldn’t be too much to ask for them to tidy up on a daily basis. Especially when dealing with lead.

If you have kids or pets who roam around the house, this can be an especially important issue to you. Ask that they take it as seriously as you do.

5. Brand Loyalty

Good quality paint applied to a properly prepared surface will last a long time. An experienced painter will likely have a brand that they recommend.

Don’t be shy about recommending your own personal favorite. Stay away from big box store brands as they’ll often lack the kind of durability and quality you’re looking for.

If your painter has an alternative brand they’d like to use, ask them what they like about the brand. If it’s a pricing issue over a quality concern, this might be a painter who likes to cut corners.

Painters will build trust with brands due to experience. Put some faith in their word.

6. Find Their Prep Plan

It’s fair to ask your prospective painter what their first steps will be and how you can help them succeed. Qualified house painting services will have a “Day One” plan mapped out for every new job.

A properly prepared paint job can last longer and also save time. Experienced house painting services know this.

You can also ask them what you can do to help them move quicker. If there’s a lot of lawn furniture laid out on your property, you can get that out of the way. If you’ve got a hose mounted to your exterior, you might want to remove that.

Think about whatever ways you can make things easier on your painters. They’ll appreciate the accommodation and they’ll be sure to be able to move faster because of your help.

Hire House Painting Services In Confidence

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Housepainters will want you to feel comfortable and confident before you hire them.

Once you narrow down your choices, ask for an estimate of time and price. Tell them you want to hold them to their schedule. It should be detailed and lay out the entire process for you in advance.

If they have an office, ask to visit their team and speak with the supervisor who will be on site. Having friendly face to face contact can make a big difference in getting good service.

If you have any questions about what you should ask your painters, feel free to contact us. We’d be happy to walk you through the process and offer advice.

Deck Refinishing in Bend, Oregon

Deck Refinishing, Stripping, Brightening

Deck Refinishing in Bend or Redmond, Oregon is no easy task. If maintenance is not kept up, you may find yourself with a very sad deck, very fast. Depending on a number of factors (including the type of wood the deck is made of, current coatings we need to remove, and ease of access), we will select products and materials that will get the job finished with the result you desire. We follow a strict 6-step system that is the same for every deck we refinish. The variables lie in the labor and materials needed each step of the way. Here is a breakdown of how we refinish a deck.

REPAIR – First things first. If we find any damage, we will make recommendations and proceed however you would like us to. We drive any loose nails and secure unstable deck boards with screws. Any visible damage such as dry rot, splintering will be noted in the proposal and remedied during this initial phase.
CLEAN – We only use low-pressure when we clean your deck to ensure that it is not damaged.  This step removes dirt and other surface contaminants which interfere with the adhesion of the coatings we apply.
STRIP – Previous coatings need to be removed completely in order for your new stain to last as long as possible. We only use professional grade strippers specially crafted for wood decks.
BRIGHTEN – This step is important for a number of reasons. First, it makes the wood more receptive to the stain. Second, the wood is brightened closer to it’s natural color. This gives us a great starting point for any stain you choose to stain your deck with.
SAND – The entire deck surface (and railings if appicable) is sanded, or “defurred,” to remove the fuzziness that results after the previous steps. Any discoloration and rough spots which aren’t taken out by the brightener will be sanded at this point. In extreme instances, the railings will need to be disassembled and reassembled.
STAIN – Only the highest quality exterior-grade stains are used in our deck care systems. We can help you select a color that will complement your fresh paint and surrounding features or apply a color you’ve already chosen.

Once you have successfully stained your deck, you will need to maintain the coating. Here are a few things you can do to extend the life of your newly applied deck stain!

  • Annually clean dirt and debris from between the deck boards. This will reduce the effect it has on deteriorating your deck finish.
  • Annually pressure wash (again, on a low setting!) your deck to get rid of any spilled BBQ sauce from last summer. Surface stains can do more than just “look bad.” They can actually eat away at your deck finish if left over time.
  • Tighten loose boards with screws. Screws wont back out like nails.

Now crank up the heat on your BBQ, pour yourself a Mojito, and enjoy the company you invited over for a very pleasant summer’s eve on your beautiful new deck.

Exterior Painting Warranties — What to Look For

While searching Central Oregon for painting services you will find few painters who offer a warranty. The ones that do, only stand behind their products for a period of two years. We here at Rise Painting believe in promoting the best practices in the industry and strive to continually learn the best prep and application methods so we can deliver to you the best possible paint job for the money you are willing to spend.

In painting, we have a lot of competition. It is pretty easy for anyone to go out and buy a truck, slap a magnet on the side, throw some ladders on top of it, pick up a spray rig, and call themselves a professional. There are hundreds of exterior and interior painters in Bend, Redmond, Sisters, and the surrounding Central Oregon area. What’s to say that contractor will be around when you need to cash in on that warranty they’ve provided?

One way to tell is by looking at who they are. How long have they been in business? Are they investing time and money into the business with the goal of creating a legacy for their families to build on? What are their core values? Does the company operate on integrity and exist to provide the best possible customer experience? If a painting warranty is important to you, you may want to start asking questions of the warranty provider. You should be able to trust the painting contractor and know with certainty that they will be around to honor it.

So you find yourself liking, trusting, and getting to know your preferred painting contractor. I want to let you in on a little secret… All warranties of the same warranty period are not always the same warranty! Even though it may say “2-year Warranty” what is actually covered may be completely different. Is the coverage spelled out for you boldly in writing? Some contractors will only exclude certain surfaces. Others might only include labor, leaving you to foot the bill for all materials — even if their company was at fault! This should throw red flags everywhere. There are even some guys who claim to offer a warranty, when in fact it is only the product warranty from the paint supplier that they use and claim the warranty to be their own. Be on the lookout for “Lifetime” warranties or anything over 10 years. These types of warranties typically only cover materials when the paint manufacturer has determined that the product has been applied properly.

The last thing to consider when purchasing an exterior painting service warranty is to consider how long you will be enjoying this paint job. How long do you plan to live in the house? If you are moving in a relatively short period of time, then a shorter warranty would be appropriate. If You are not planning to move, then a mid-range warranty, like a 5 to 8 year warranty would be good. If you are someone who values the best quality with no hassles, then the longer warranty packages might be best for you. In reality, most paint jobs in Central Oregon will not last longer than 10 years due to the UV rays, harsh winters, and dry climate. All these environmental factors are very harsh on painted finishes. Warranties longer than about ten years are most likely expecting you to never call them back to fix that flaking fascia paint they neglectfully “forgot” to prime.

Once you decide on how you want your new paint to perform, you can choose a contractor and a painting system to suit your needs. Take into consideration that you will pay more for a longer warranty, but that warranty will more than pay for itself over its lifetime. I would suggest that you investigate the company providing you with a warranty. Ask about their painting systems and keep them accountable once they start. Get it all in writing before they begin.

At Rise Painting, we offer three different warranty levels. 2-years, 6-years, and 10-years, all with our “No Problem” guarantee. If you need to make a claim, we will assess the problem within 3 business days, and complete all repairs within one week…weather permitting of course. With our warranty packages, you will be reminded on your warranty anniversary date that it is time to schedule your free 1-hour touchup. Each year, for the life of your warranty, we will schedule a time for us to do a walk-through and address any potential problems. This includes re-caulking, re-scraping, re-painting and anything inbetween. In all reality, if it’s not up to our standards, we will fix it. We believe whole-heartedly that integrity in business goes a long way. Please read more about the history of Rise Painting here.

If you have questions about our warranty feel free to contact our office at 541-316-5929 or on our Contact Us page.
