Painting and Remodeling Chattanooga
Painting the outside of your house is an easy way to change the overall look of your home, without tackling a full-on remodeling project. However, selecting the paint color for the exterior of your home can be quite the commitment. Especially when you factor in the subtleties of color—how pigments can differ depending on lighting, textures, and adjacent tones. If you’re not sure what to pick, this list of tips may help spark new ideas to selecting the perfect exterior paint color, sure to last you through the years.
#1 Time to be Inspired
Take your time and utilize all inspirational resources, like Pinterest, to find your paint color. Although picking the perfect color can take forever, if you let it! Once you find the right shade, don’t second guess – just go for it!
#2 What is Your Paint Personality?
If you are full of personality, consider small pops of color to help your home stand out from the curb. The colors you choose can make a bold statement!
#3 Consider the Block
On a street of beige, would you want your house to blend among the rest? On the flipside, while there’s nothing wrong with standing out a bit, do consider the neighbors view and the overall aesthetic of the block. It is important to pick a color that you and your neighbors will love. Tip: Take a walk down your street and make note of neighboring curb appeal, what you like, also what you don’t like!
#4 Research the Roots
If you have an older, or historic home, you will want to do your research on nationally registered historic hues. Does your home have a distinctive style? Consider the architecture to find color inspiration.
#5 Pick a Palette
When picking out your color palette, remember to consider your roof, chimney, facade, and other features or elements that may help you concentrate your colors in complementary shades.

You don’t have to wait until spring to tackle these home improvement projects; however, if you’re in deep spring cleaning mode, you might as well take on your outdoor space too! There are a number of ways to freshen up your outdoor space with just a few simple tricks and a pressure washer. Not only does annual outdoor cleaning benefit cosmetic appearance and curb appeal, it also helps to extend the longevity of your outdoor space.
Exterior brick or siding
Pressure washing your exterior space, such as siding and masonry surfaces, can transform the overall look of your space. Tip: for stubborn dirt or mildew, add detergent to get the job done in half the time!
Before pressure washing, start by removing any existing weeds or grass in cracks or seams of the driveway. Once removed, a careful cleaning with a pressure washer to remove dirt and grime can make a huge difference!
Similarly to your driveway, gutters may also build up dirt and grime. Tip: when cleaning gutters overhead, stand off to the side to avoid spray back, debris, water runoff, and drips.
Being careful not to damage the wood, follow all cleaning and pressure washing instructions based on wood cleaner type. For best results, test on an inconspicuous area of the deck before treating the entire area.
Bring your wood fence back to life with a good pressure washer cleaning. Once clean and dry, apply a rejuvenating coat of wood stain and sealer. Afterwards, your fence will look brand new!
Windows need maintenance just like the rest of your property. So no matter if you’re cleaning them to remove pollen and dirt build up or prepping to repaint, think of the pressure washer as your new best friend. Tip: check the condition of your windows before cleaning to avoid damage to the glass, trim, or seal.
While pressure washing can improve the look of the outside of your home, do be careful. Pressure washers emit extremely high pressure that can damage wood and other various materials, if used improperly.
