Although temperatures are plummeting, there is still time to protect your home and buildings exteriors from frigid temps, ice, and snow. Without being adequately prepared winter weather can cause damage to your siding, trim, shutters, doors, and windows. Exterior painting offers additional benefits that you may not have considered, it’s not just giving your home a new look or adding to its value. Before the worst of our weather returns, here are a few things to keep in mind when considering the benefits of exterior paint.
As we approach a New Year, Best Painting Inc., would like to announce the Color of the Year, or rather Colors of the Year.
Furthermore, we’d like to elaborate on what these Colors mean to us.
Starting with Sherwin Williams Color of the Year, which is ‘Naval SW 6244’, Similar to PPG’s Color of the Year which is ‘Navy Chinese Porcelain’. Both colors represent Navy in different tones.
Sherwin Williams Naval Color is a deep and sophisticated Navy blue as shown here
Light Tans and greys accentuate the blue in this color. Primarily Naval is used for accent walls, front doors and powder bathrooms. But that is not the only place to use Naval. It’s also gorgeous on cabinets and styled properly can be nice to use on all walls in an office, dining room or bedroom.
Like Naval, PPG’s Navy Chinese Porcelain is a darker, shaded, orchid blue with a violet undertone. When we think of Navy Chinese Porcelain our minds may go to antiques like so
However, Chinese Porcelain is just as elegant for our home as it is on antiques!
Here is a great example of how this Navy can class up your home!
Now that we have the two Navy Colors of the year, look into what the other Painting Companies are talking about. For example, we have Behr’s Color of the year ‘Back to Nature-S340-4’. Back to Nature is a revitalizing green hue that engages our nature and outdoors side, this color pairs well with other greens and plant-like shades. This is perfect for a calm yet vibrant home as seen here
Again with the theme of calming colors, we have Dunn Edwards Color of the Year ‘Minty Fresh (DE5687)’
Minty Fresh is a calm, clean and crisp high point pastel that can coincide with our nature colors and really bring some brightness to your home for a Fresh new beginning.
Lastly, I’d like to appreciate Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year, ‘First Light 2101-10’. This color is a soft, airy pink that flatters any living space. The great thing about First Light is that it is an alternative to white and goes well with other calming colors. Here is a representation of First light below

1. Paint is one of the cheapest, easiest ways to update the look of your home before you list it. Lighter and neutral colors are preferred when selling because they tend to appeal to most people. You never know who will walk through the door to view the house, so it makes sense to keep the styling primary. You don’t have to paint every room, necessarily, just those that obviously need it. Rooms with dark paint, chipped or dirty paint are the ones that will benefit most. If you have wallpaper in your home, it is almost always a good idea to remove it to sell your home for the most money. Wallpaper dates a home.
Buyers have a hard time selling past wallpaper. Some sellers assume a buyer should just be able to “look past it.” This is a mistake as it defeats the purpose. Getting rid of wallpaper is all about first impressions and making a home more appealing to a buyer. Removing the wallpaper is what puts more money in a sellers pocket.
It is imperative for a Homeowner to understand how important the initial visit is to a home and the impression it makes on a buyer.
2. Exterior-The exterior is the first thing buyers will see, so you want it to look good.
A fresh coat of Paint helps the Outside of your home look fresh and new.
Clean up any junk that may have accumulated in the yard or on the outside of any storage sheds.Make sure the grass is mowed and that weeds are taken care of before someone comes to view the home.
3. Kitchen-Everyone wants a large, spacious kitchen with all new appliances – where they can cook and entertain (even if they never do either). Now your kitchen may not satisfy these desires without significant upgrades, which may not make sense financially.
Do not do a complete kitchen renovation unless your agent tells you that he or she believes you can make your money back on the sale.
However, you can make some minor repairs that will make your kitchen appear more inviting, even if it isn’t a “dream kitchen”.
If the painting, lighting, and countertops all scream the 1970s, you can change all of these without too large of an investment.
You can paint as necessary, install new fixtures and replace the countertops to something more appealing (granite and marble are not a requirement for an updated look).
The price of solid surface materials, however, has come down in recent years so it might be worth getting an estimate for installing granite countertops, especially when the kitchen counter space is not huge.
As far as appliances go, buyers are going to expect these to work. If the oven, dishwasher or range are out of operation – or in awful shape – replacing them might be necessary to appeal to buyers.
4. Bathroom-A clean bathroom – one where everything works as it should – is a necessity. If you have a problem with a running toilet or a leaky faucet, make repairs as necessary. You can cause the toilet look much better just by replacing the seat.
Cleaning up the grout or replacing it is always a good idea, as it can become dirty over the years. Any missing tiles should also be replaced.
If the bathroom has old wallpaper or dingy surfaces, a new paint job is recommended. The brighter and cleaner you can make the room, the better.
The bathrooms and kitchen are the most important areas in a home. These are areas where buyers will put their focus. They are also the most expensive areas in a home to upgrade.
This makes it vital for you to repair any issues before putting your home up for sale.
