Your home’s exterior is the first thing people see when they drive by or come to visit, so it’s important to make sure it looks its best. One of the easiest and most effective ways to improve your home’s curb appeal is by giving it a fresh coat of paint. But with so many colors, finishes, and brands to choose from, it can be overwhelming to decide on the right paint for your home.

One of the first things to consider when choosing exterior paint is the type of surface you’ll be painting. Different types of paint are designed for different surfaces, such as wood, stucco, brick, or metal. Make sure to select a paint that is specifically formulated for the surface of your home.

Next, think about the climate in your area. If you live in a hot and sunny region, look for paint with high levels of UV protection to keep your home from fading. If you live in a damp or humid area, choose paint with mildew-resistant properties to prevent mold and mildew from growing on your home.

Another important factor to consider is the finish of the paint. A glossy finish will make your home’s colors appear brighter and more vibrant, but it’s also more prone to chipping and peeling. A flat or matte finish is less reflective and more forgiving of imperfections, but it won’t be as shiny. A satin finish is a good middle ground, offering a slight shine with more durability than a glossy finish.

When it comes to color, the options are endless. You can choose a color that’s similar to your home’s existing color, or you can choose a completely new color to give your home a fresh new look. Keep in mind that darker colors will absorb more heat and may make your home feel warmer, while lighter colors will reflect more light and may keep your home cooler.

Finally, don’t forget to consider the brand of paint you’re using. Here at Greencal we are an authorized dealer of TexCote® COOLWALL® exterior coating, a revolutionary product that can help you keep your home cooler without having to constantly run your air conditioner. Unlike traditional exterior house paint, TexCote® COOLWALL® is specially formulated to reflect the sun’s heat rather than absorb it, which has been shown to lower exterior wall surface temperatures by as much as 40 degrees. TexCote® COOLWALL® consists of a thin primer that fuses together with a thick finish to form an impermeable and highly reflective moisture-proof barrier that, unlike exterior house paint, will never chip, flake, or peel.
