Painting the exterior of your Raleigh, NC home can be a complicated and costly project, which is why you want to be sure you’ve picked the correct kind of paint before you start applying coats. Even more, a new coat of paint can actually increase the value of your home, that makes it even more important to make the right choice! The exterior home painting market is saturated with competitors claiming they have the best product, but how do you know it’s not just a branding gimmick? The exterior home painting experts at Osborne Painting in Raleigh have compiled a list of things to look for in helping you make a good decision of what paint to use.

  1. Make sure your paint choice can withstand cracking, fading or peeling. Exterior paint is exposed to all the weather elements that Raleigh experiences, and needs to be able to stand up to high winds, prolonged sun, heavy rain and the occasional ice or snow storm.

  2. Check the label for words like “100% acrylic,” “mildewcide added” and “UV protection”. These are some of the important items to look for in helping you make the best decision possible.

  3. Go with what works. If your current coat of exterior paint has held up well for the recommended five to seven years, stick with that company, use the same brand, or find out if they presently have more improved brands to use.
