exterior painting tips

Here are tips for choosing the best exterior paint for your home:

Be Familiar with Different Kinds of Paint
There are many kinds of paint available on the market such as gloss, semi-gloss, satin, matte, and flat. Each of these options has different qualities.

• Gloss - This is extremely durable and has a shiny finish, adding a rich, smooth luster to your home's exterior. It is great for wood trims, cabinets, doors, or any area you want to put emphasis on. It is also washable.

• Semi-Gloss - Like gloss paint, semi-gloss is durable and shiny. This kind of paint is good for areas that need frequent cleaning like kitchens, bathrooms, closet doors, foyers, hallways, and utility areas.

• Satin - This paint option provides a slight shine and is washable. It can conceal imperfections in your home's exterior, which is good for keeping your home beautiful. It is also great in high-traffic areas.

• Matte and Flat - These products soak up light rather than reflect it, which is great in hiding unpleasant marks in your exterior. While the average matte and flat paint is not washable, our partnership with Sherwin Williams® allows us to provide you with matte and flat paint that is washable. This allows us to deliver quality exterior painting in Atlanta, GA.

Know Your Needs
Before you choose a paint product to enhance your exterior, it is essential that you have an idea what results you want your paint to deliver. Do you want your home's exterior to look shiny? Do you want to have paint that does not need much maintenance? Are you in the market for a durable and long-lasting paint product?
