Things to Consider when Painting

London, Ontario Area

  • Consider your front door as a focal point; the eye should be drawn to your home’s welcoming entrance. If you paint your garage doors the same colour, the larger amount of colour will make the garage doors the focal point instead.
  • Keep your colour statement strong. If your front entrance has a storm door, paint it the same colour. Many homes have a beautiful colour on the front door which gets diluted with a white, aluminum or brown door over top. Ask your Beauti-Tone paint expert for the proper prep and paint to professionally paint your storm door.
  • Avoid painting your door a dark colour if you have a storm door. The combination can make the door hardware a hazard to touch in the hotter months.
  • You can successfully paint aluminum and vinyl siding but never go darker than the original colour, or buckling may occur.
  • Use paint and colour to hide or accent your home’s attributes. Beautiful architectural features can be highlighted with a lighter, darker or contrasting shade. Unsightly features, like downspouts, can be hidden by painting them the same colour.
  • The NEW HomeWorks Home Remodeling Software 2.0 Professional takes the guess work out of choosing the right colour. This software lets you see how great your home will look with the Beauti-Tone colours you have chosen. It will even show how new siding, roofing, windows, doors and many other building products will look on scanned-in photos of your home. The software is available exclusively at your local Home Hardware, Home Building Centre and Home Hardware Building Centre.
