SELECTING PAINT

How to Select Paint - Exterior House Painting

Selecting exterior paint is a very personal choice for most people. Many factors need to be considered when it comes to exterior house painting. And with so many colors of paint available, choosing a color can feel like an impossible task.

We will help you choose the type of paint that will work on the surface of your exterior. Vinyl, brick, wood and fiber-cement siding all have paints that work better or worse on them. Understanding what works best often comes from experience. The same is true for painting stucco finishes.

When selecting a paint color for your exterior many factors can come into play. Homeowners need to consider any homeowners association rules that would affect the color choice. Many Southeast Houston homeowners will have their home repainted the same color, or a color very similar. That is the easy and safe decision.

Others will look for a more dramatic impact in a house painting project. If that's you, you should be sure to consider:

  • Other houses in the neighborhood. Most homeowners don't want to pick a color that sticks out as inappropriate.
  • What colors would fit with the original style and era of your home?
  • Are you painting everything on the exterior of your home (doors, shudders, etc.) or just the walls?

That third question is a big one. It can be difficult for Southeast Houston area homeowners to picture how the new color will be affected by its surroundings. It's one thing to hold a paint swatch up and a completely different thing when that color is painted on the entire house.

Other Surfaces

Selecting paint or stain for the other surfaces inside or outside your home, office building or rental property can be just as challenging. While the designers on television can make creating a unified look seem easy, at C & K Painting we know it can be much harder in reality. When you work with us, we'll rely on our knowledge, expertise and experience to help you select the paint, stain or other finish that will work best for you.

What Our Customers Are Saying

We thought that we were going to have to paint the exterior of our house and called C&K. Corbett came out and suggested that we try power-washing first. We did and realized it was just grime and mildew. Corbett saved us some money!


-Barry L.

My husband used to paint our house, but never again. Corbett and crew are professionals that did the job on time and within our budget. Their attention to detail made each room look better than new.


-Lynette D.

We had just put our house on the market and the realtor suggested we paint some rooms. We called C&K Painting and we are glad we did. They came on schedule and painted the rooms that we needed painted. They were courteous, professional and the rooms look terrific. Our home sold just three weeks later! Thanks Corbett.


-Betty C.

I can't say enough wonderful things about the work C & K did for our clinic, Medcure Anti-aging and Skincare by the Galleria! Corbett Thompson sent his two man crew for two, 10 hour days to paint tall ceilings and difficult wall space. The job was very professionally completed, Rene and his co-worker were nice, hard working and the place looks incredible! Come see the clinic and look at the amazing workmanship!


-Carla S.

Excellent work in one day. They cleaned up and you couldn't even tell they had been there. My husband couldn't fine any flaws in the painting of the vaulted ceilings, kitchen, dining room and living room common area.


-Ray D.

C & K Painting came to my rescue after Harvey. The crews were professional and ensured that my home was taken care of quickly. I had utilized their services several years ago to paint the outside of my home and was very happy with the services. They did an amazing job again, thank you for helping me!
