HOW TO SELECT EXTERIOR 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 Prescott 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 Prescott 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 Manning's Painting Company 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.

    Interior Painting Services
    When we bought our home in Hidden Valley Ranch, we hired Matthew Mannings to paint the exterior. He did an excellent job, at the right price and he was a pleasure to work with. Now, 21 years later, it was time to work on the interior. I called Matthew to paint the living room, dining room, kitchen and utility room. The crew he sent to do the job (Ron and Matt) have been wonderful. They have gently and professionally moved and replaced my antiques and collectibles and rehung all my paintings in their proper places and did it all with as little disruption as possible (even Sandy, my little dog, made friends with them). They completed the job on time and I am pleased with the end result. I will most certainly will call "Mannings Painting Company" for any future painting projects I may have. From the beginning with the office help to the original estimate to the actual work being done, it has been a pleasure working with all the "Mannings" people. Thank you for a job well done and for respecting my home and possessions with such care.

  • Ya'll Did Good!! From answering the phone to watching our painters (Daryl and Joey) complete the paint job on our house. The ladies at Manning's are very professional and display a picture of competence and customer care. Matt's selection of Daryl and Joey to accomplish our paint job was perfect: on time everyday, constant work ethic, a penchant to do a perfect job, very professional in appearance, attitude, and performance. Both Suzanne and I love the paint job and care for our property. Matt, you have a great team please express our thanks to each for a job well done.

  • Highly Recommended
    We recently retained Manning's to paint the exterior of a home we recently acquired in Prescott. It had not been maintained for thirteen years, and they made it look like new construction. But that's what we paid for... What we didn't pay for, yet received was professionalism throughout the staff, good solid communication throughout the process, intelligent craftsmen and real value. We could not recommend them more highly.

  • Amazing Service
    After getting estimates from several companies for what turned out to be unnecessary work, they gave me an estimate and diagnosed the cause of my roof leak, which was a screw hole and not saturation of the walls as had been previously suggested. The crew repaired my ceiling and crown molding and I've scheduled them to return in February to do the rest of the crown in my home. You have to be patient if you want to work with Manning's because they stay busy, but worth the wait.
