As professional exterior painting contractors, we get asked a lot of questions by our clients about exterior house paint colors as well as some other valid ones. We’ve put a list together of the five most frequently asked questions with the answers, some suggestions, and information that pertains to Kansas homeowners.

Top 5 Questions for Home Exterior Painting Projects:

Q: What color offers the best resale value?

A: Here in Kansas, it’s not a big secret that painting houses the wrong color can decrease the resale value as we get numerous calls from new buyers who want to immediately paint the exterior as soon as they buy one. The colors that add the most resale value are neutral tones like gray, green, yellow, slate blue, and white is always a safe bet and popular choice.

Choosing the right exterior house paint can add $6,000 or more to the resale value; however, what’s even more shocking is the amount of money painting the front door with the right color can add to a home’s resale value? Black and charcoal gray front entry doors can add an additional $6,000 to a home’s resale value while dark blue can fetch about $4,500.

Q: Does painting the exterior of my home add value?

A: Just as our name suggests, absolutely, no pun intended. The average condo or homeowner in Kansas can expect to at least double their investment for what the exterior painting project cost. Not only does painting your home’s exterior add monetary value, but it also adds structural value. Exterior house paint is the first line of defense for keeping your siding waterproof and airtight from the elements.

We only use the best primers and paints that provide longevity, durability, low-maintenance, beauty and lots of staying power. We also take great pride in our prep work, which is about 90 percent of the job and what sets our finished product ahead of the competition. When we say, satisfaction guaranteed or your paint is 100 percent free? We mean it.

Q: What are the most popular exterior house colors?

A: Although white is always a popular exterior house color, it’s more of a conservative and safe color that blends in with other houses in the neighborhood, but there are some other popular color schemes we’ve done that work quite well in Northern Kansas.

Muted Neutrals: work well in residential neighborhoods by offering a color scheme that blends in with landscaping with other muted elements. Soft grays and brown-grays work well as the primary color while secondary colors like antique white or dessert tans dress up the trim around windows, doors, and fascias. Then put the cherry on top by painting the front door a dark blue or charcoal gray.

Spring Colors: warm spring colors are always a popular choice as they add just enough “pop” to the primary color without being obnoxious. Light blues, greens, and yellows with white or gray trim look amazing and always in season. When choosing a spring color scheme for your home’s exterior, it’s always a good idea to paint the front door a few shades darker than the base color, but if you want to go bold, light rose or pale apricot works well on the front door. Spring colors can make your home look like a coastal cottage or southern home.

Statement Colors: are exterior house paint colors that demand to be noticed. We’re seeing more and more Kansas homeowners going with statement colors than ever before. Statement colors like red, blue, and yellow also make the elements around the home stand out. They can bring out the beauty of the changing seasons, and it reflects the homeowner’s personality.

Painting the trim with brilliant whites really adds the wow-factor to the home and major curb appeal, but if you want to tone it down a bit, taupe and blue-grays will look great on your trim work. Painting the front door black will make the biggest impact with statement colors while white or blues also work with this color scheme.

Those are just a few of the color schemes we offer, call us today and schedule your free consultation for more information and explore all of your exterior color options.

Q: How long does external paint last?

A: With the climate conditions in Northern Kansas, you can expect our paint jobs to last between five and seven years. We provide a three-year warranty that includes paint and labor.

Q: How often should I repaint the exterior of my house?

A: Painting the exterior of your home is no different than changing the oil in your car. Routine oil changes are recommended every 3000 miles on most vehicles. When it comes to repainting the exterior of your home, we recommend repainting every 4 to 6 years, depending on the level of ware and dulling of the paint. The longer you put an oil change off, the more damage you’ll cause to the engine.

The same rules apply to a home’s exterior, the longer you wait, the more work it will take to bring it back to its original condition, and the more it will cost. It’s always less expensive to repaint your home every 4 to 6 years.
