7 Tips for Selecting the Best Exterior House Paint

Return to the Blog Home Page

Occasionally, every homeowner needs to repaint their home, and instead of reaching for the same brand of paint you always use, you may want to take some time to look for the best exterior house paint. How do you determine which paint is the best? Make sure it meets the following qualifications.

Look for a Wide Range of Color Options

Ideally, your home should reflect your personal sense of style, and to make that possible, you need to choose an exterior paint that comes in a wide range of different colors. The best exterior house paint options usually let you customize a color. RhinoShield exterior paint features a color palette with a variety of different hues and if none of those suit you, we can also match colors from Home Depot, Sherwin Williams, Porter, Pittsburg, Valspar, and Behr.

 

Opt for Exterior Paint That Works on Multiple Surfaces

Unfortunately, a lot of exterior paint only works well on wood or other popular materials. In contrast, the best exterior house paint can go on almost any type of surface including vinyl, brick, and stucco. That lets you update your wood siding, but also your brickwork, metal flashing, garage doors in a variety of materials, and multiple other surfaces.

 

Choose Paint That Promises to Last

Generally, homeowners have to repaint their homes every 3-5 years or so, subject to the type of siding you have. Now, there are exterior paints that can last up to 25 years. If you just want to sit back and enjoy your home without worrying about the need to constantly repaint, you may want to opt for a paint that lasts a long time.

 

Insist on a Warranty

That said, if a paint is truly going to last, its manufacturers should be willing to back up that claim with a warranty. Ideally, you want a warranty that covers both the labor and the paint. Then, if the paint ever chips or has other issues, you can get it done for free. On top of that, you should look for a transferable warranty. That means the warranty stays intact, even if you sell your home to someone else.

 

Look for Additional Features

The best exterior house paint isn’t really paint at all. Rather, it’s a contemporary improvement on paint that is actually a ceramic coating. This type of paint does more than just change the color of your home. It also insulates your home, adds some fire-protective capabilities, and resists damage from salty air.

Go Green

While you want your home to look great, you don’t want that to hurt the environment. If possible, look for exterior paint that promises to be green. The painters should be able to remove lead following EPA guidelines, and the paint itself should have low levels of VOCs.

 

Work With Quality Painting Contractors

Once you find the best exterior house paint, you need quality contractors to apply it for you. Top notch painting contractors go over your home and make repairs before they get started. Then, they apply the paint in a professional and timely matter. You don’t have to worry about the color from the siding bleeding onto the trim, or paint for the wood shutters getting on your brickwork. When you choose quality painting contractors, they ensure the job is done correctly.
