Q & A Thursday: Exterior Transformation

Q & A:

Looking for exterior colors for this house.

The roof remains as it is relatively new.  We will consider repainting the brick as it has been difficult for us to imagine colors that go with it.

Our desire is for neutral colors (taupe or gray) with the trim to have green(ish) tints.  We have looked to Sherwin Williams (Queen Anne’s Lace) to BM Stampede.  The brick is General Shale Dutch Chocolate – mainly brown with tiny brick red and green flecks that are not visible from any distance, but the colors above seem to work with it.
We cannot find any photos of houses with this color scheme.  Perhaps that is because it is not a good choice.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Mike,

It’s a hard decision whether or not to paint brick, but we think in this case it’s the right thing to do. It will give your home a facelift, increase curb appeal and up the value of your home. Click here to see a few colour suggestions.

Below are a few photos of homes before and after being painted and the transformations are incredible.

We do recommend that you have a professional come out and help you choose the perfect shades. That way you can have some peace of mind in knowing that it will look fantastic no matter what. Perhaps your local Benjamin Moore Store can help and we hope it’s Painters Place 

Goodluck 🙂
