Exterior paint: choose carefully

When I say “choose carefully,” I don’t just mean the brand of the paint you are using.  I am talking about the choice of colors.

Take into consideration the effect of the sun, harsh weather and other conditions that will play havoc on your paint job.  Pure yellows and reds are especially susceptible to gradual change and can oxidize faster than other colors, so I would avoid them.

Probably the most favorable exterior colors are neutral toned with a medium value. This includes light to medium browns and beige colors – they’ve got a nice strong resistance to UV light.
