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 Point Pleasant Borough 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 Point Pleasant Borough 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 Carl M. Roller Painting & Powerwashing 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.

Testimonials

  • Carl painted the entire interior of my home. The job was extremely well-done. I have bull-nose corners and the lines of different paint colors are crisp and perfect. I had news doors installed to my patio and the contractor brought in his own painter to finish the doors. This other painter was very impressed by Carl's work and complimented his skill. When you use Carl, you can be assured that you are getting the most professional and the closest to perfect paint job out there!! Highly recommended!
    -Ann K.

  • Carl has painted our entire home at least 3 times in the 16 + years we have had the pleasure of knowing him. From the moment we met him until, most recently, a month or so ago, Carl exemplifies personalized professionalism not only in his chosen profession, but in his demeanor when speaking about anything. His respect for our home and it?s contents is evident when he first walks into a home?He removes his shoes?despite the fact that we have tile. So not to be too wordy?I want to get across the following because it?s important to know this when choosing a painter?. 1. Carl ?palms? the walls to feel for nail pops which may not yet be evident visually. 2. Preparing the walls to accept paint is the most important aspect of painting?Carl makes sure this phase of the job is not rushed. 3. Color selection...here is an example?The very first time Carl came to us, my daughter Ariel was maybe 6 or 7. Trying to figure out what color she would like, prior to Carl coming over, we had all the color charts?..was impossible?. Carl sat down on the floor with her and simply asked her to bring him 5 of her favorite t-shirts?He told us from there we will know the colors she likes best?Took 5 minutes and we had the color. So all in all?my family highly recommends Roller Enterprises & will continue to use his services?you will not be disappointed!

    -Linda & Barry G.

  • I have used Carl twice in the past several years for power washing and both interior/exterior painting and I highly recommend him. His prices are extremely reasonable, but more importantly, he takes great pride in his work with his attention to detail, thoroughness, and quality workmanship. He is knowledgeable, meticulous, and very clean, treating my house as if it were his own. I will be calling him when I?m ready to paint the entire exterior of my house!?
