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 Independence 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 Independence 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.
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 Precise Image Painting 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.

We had 3 requirements for choosing a painting company: Local company, great reviews, competitive price. We found that with Precise Image Painting. Trey was the only one that actually showed up to provide an estimate. I had an idea of what the estimate would be by talking to co-workers who had their houses painted. He walked around house taking notes and asking questions. Went to his truck and 20 minutes later provided a printed estimate. My wife and I discussed it over the weekend and called Trey to schedule the job. Mother Nature caused some delays, but once the power wash is scheduled, things start moving quickly. Have your colors picked for house and trim because this crew works fast! Day 1 is all about prepping with caulking, replacing wood rot and any cosmetic work. Painting actually started towards end of day 1. Day 2 was all about painting. The crew works together well and understand their roles in the process. They are all very personable. Trey did final walk around finding minor issues and had them fixed. For painters, the job itself is their calling card. Trey had 3 of my neighbors ask for estimates on Day 2. I know from experience that it is hard to find good companies for projects around the house. Trey and Precise Image Painting is the company you want for your painting needs! Thanks to Trey and his crew!
My wife and I give him 5 stars. We would definitely highly recommend Trey and his team. Once project started they were quick and had everything done pretty much in 2 days. An outstanding job on the fascia repair and paint job.
Trey and his team did a fantastic job on my home exterior. Trey was professional, responsive and friendly from the very first call. He even came out to bid my project in the pouring rain rather than ask me to reschedule. He gave me a fair estimate and thoroughly explained all of the steps involved. He worked me into his schedule in a timely manner, exactly as he said he would. Trey called to let me know any time he and his guys would be at my house and the whole crew was great to work with. Job was completed in under 3 days, including power washing, and the work is exceptional. Several of my neighbors texted me commenting on how good my house was looking and how efficiently the guys were working. My house looks better than ever thanks to Trey and his team. I couldn't be happier with the experience and I will recommend Precise Image Painting to everyone I know.
