2017 Best Exterior House Color Schemes

 

Is the outside of your house ready for an update? When it’s time to paint your home’s exterior, it can be tempting to stick to the status quo. But what’s the fun in that? It’s important to keep in mind that most people only paint the outside of their homes once every 10 years or so, which is a pretty long time to live with just one look. So when you’re ready to change things up and give your home a fresh new look, there are a few things you should consider.

7 Exterior Color Schemes That Will Refresh Your Home

1. The classics

If you know you’ll need your next paint job to last for awhile, going with neutrals is your best bet. Experiment with variations on tones of beige, sand, and white to create a truly timeless look that will never look dated or out of place. It also makes it easy to make quick style updates throughout the years—you can easily change up your accent colors on doors and shutters without changing the base color of your home. To make this color palette a little more modern and exciting, choose two or three shades of the same color as accents.

Restore-X® Exterior Finish Remover (EFR)

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

Restore-X Deck productsRestore-X® can help make your customers happier and your business more profitable.  In the past, the only solution to weathered wood and deteriorated, semi-transparent stain or clear exterior finishes was to hide them and the natural beauty of the wood under a new coat of solid stain or paint.  Similarly, surface preparation of deteriorated paints with the sanding and scraping has always been a labor intensive undertaking.  Now, Restore-X® Wood Restoration Products can make your job easy and increase your customer’s satisfaction.  Restore-X® products are biodegradable, odorless, non-flammable and will not harm the environment.  They are also water based for easy clean-up and specially formulated for your safety.

 

Restore-X® Exterior Finish Remover (EFR) is formulated for the average exterior stain or weathered and degraded paint removal task.  It is designed to provide a safe, swift and economical alternative to the conventional methods of surface preparation.  Restore-X® EFR will clean and remove deteriorated coatings. Some paint which is not deteriorated, particularly porch and deck enamels and certain latex paints with acrylic, may not be removable.  As  a real problem solver, it is perfect for window frames, moldings, fascias, soffits, handrails, shutters, trelliswork, gutters, cornices, patio furniture and siding.  Restore-X® EFR is also excellent for surface preparation of aluminum siding.  It will remove the chalking, deteriorated coating and etch the aluminum for re-coating in one process.  EFR has been specifically formulated for use on vertical surfaces by clinging to the substrate.  (Because of the viscosity necessary for vertical cling, spraying EFR is not recommended.)
