If you’re refreshing the main body colour of your house whether with paint or new siding, it’s important to take all of the existing fixed elements into consideration to determine the best colour options.
Painting or residing the exterior of your house is a big expensive job. The colour you choose is a big commitment and you want to be sure it’s perfect BEFORE it goes up. The colour you choose for the body of your house, whether it’s stucco, fiber-cement (Hardie board) or vinyl siding, will be determined by all the other fixed elements on your home. . Or, if the body of your house is paintable, you need to know what else comes into play when you’re choosing a new colour. Maria will help you get it just right.
Please note: often when you change the body colour of your home, the trim colour also needs to be reconsidered, so I recommend the Exterior Bundle here.
Each and every recommendation is from Maria directly. The eDesign team packages her advice into a clear presentation for you and handles communication and client support.
This is colour advice from Maria via photos and email.
