For every homeowner, painting a house represents a significant financial, aesthetic, and even emotional commitment. This book is designed to help you make the right decisions -- from choosing colors to selecting the right finish and maintaining the end result-- to ensure that your home will not only look good but also be properly protected.
The best paint jobs start with meticulous preparation. but what is noticed first is the color scheme. Exterior Style addresses both these building blocks towards an outstanding result. Good color selection can transform a house, giving it character and style. And, while there are no simple answers, we explain the key steps to building a successful palette: how to understand the power and effect of color; how to pair color with the architecture of your home; and how to use the color wheel and paint chips to get the look you want, whether traditional or modern, lively or subdued. As inspiration, we've selected some popular color combinations and shown how they alter the look of the same house.
Preparation and application are the foundation for excellent results: Even the ideal color selection needs to be properly applied to look good. The second half of Exterior Style explains how to get lasting results, whether you plan to hire a professional or do the job yourself. Here you'll find expert technical advice for choosing the right finish and applying it to everything from a hundred-year-old clapboard Victorian to a vinyl-sided split level or a brand new stucco townhouse. We've also included tips, step-by-step preparation instructions, and an illustrated troubleshooting section that will help you track down and solve problems before they become serious. And, because caring for your home is important even as the lat coat of paint has been applied, we've given some useful maintenance tips to help make sure that your house and its paint finish will look good for years to come.
