Are you looking to change the color of your Oakton area home? Maybe you’d like to upgrade your house, not simply by changing the color, but also by improving its overall quality. The experts at MasterWorks Painters have years of experience in residential painting and can help when it’s time to choose exterior paint for your home. We recommend looking for these qualities when finalizing your home’s next color. When you see the final results, you’ll be glad you spent the extra time researching the best type of paint to use.

What to Look For When Choosing Exterior Paint for Your Home

Paint Quality

Exterior paint can vary in price per gallon, anywhere from $8 all the way to more than $50. In our experience, when it comes to exterior paint, you get what you pay for. Yes, you may pay more for higher quality paint, but your home will thank you for the benefits it provides:

  • Longer paint warranties.
  • Easier to clean and maintain.
  • Much more durable.

Long-Lasting Color

Lower quality paint is made using cheap dyes and pigments. If your home faces a southern exposure and is in direct sunlight, a cheaper quality of paint will fade faster over time. Long-lasting pigments are typically found in higher-priced premium paints, but the results you’ll receive will be well worth it in the end.

Weather Resistance

In the Oakton, VA, area, we experience different types of weather year-round. Thunderstorms in the fall and hurricanes in the summer are types of weather that can harm your home, including the exterior paint. If you’re looking for a paint that will resist harsh weather, choose an acrylic-based latex paint, specifically one that is all acrylic or 100% acrylic. Only genuine acrylic paint will be truly weather-resistant.

Enjoy Your Home

With a high-quality exterior paint, the exterior of your home will be more durable, have long-lasting color, and resist the harsh Virginia weather.
