Love Gray Homes? This Exterior Painting Project in Piedmont, CA, Is for You

The value of well-chosen and applied exterior paint is multifaceted.

On one hand, the thorough inspection, repairs, and preparation that a high-end paint job provides ensures that your home’s exterior surfaces are well-protected. UV rays are blocked, moisture is locked outside, and even pests (like ants and termites) find a closed door.

Beautiful exterior paint also provides essential curb appeal, perfect for your enjoyment every day as you come and go, but also for long-term value. Prospective buyers love attractive finishes; living proof that the home has been cared for and preserved.

So, how can you be sure that your painting project delivers maximum value?

3 Attributes of a High-Value Exterior Painting Project

#1 Invest in Craftsmanship

A cheap bid from a painter may seem appealing, but you do get what you pay for. Low prices often stem from cut corners, flimsy products, or skipped/minimized surface preparation. These all spell disaster for your return on investment.

#2 Premium Paint Products

Color retention, lifespan, and durability all increase as you choose a better product. It’s worth the initial investment! You should feel comfortable asking your professional painting company what products they recommend, and why.

#3 Pick the Right Color

Stylish, neutral exterior paint colors tend to yield the highest value. It’s important to pick a color you love, first and foremost, but it’s also helpful (especially if your home is going on the market soon) to select a color that has universal appeal. And, one that blends well with the neighborhood.

Gray Exterior Paint - A Beautiful Example of a Stylish Neutral

This Piedmont home is a perfect example of a classic, attractive paint scheme. We chose Sherwin-Williams’ Resilience exterior latex paint in the following colors:

  • Body - Classic Gray

  • Windows/Trim - Black

  • Eaves - White

Didn’t it turn out beautifully?
