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 Long Island 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 Long Island 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.
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 Magic Painting & Remodeling 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 People Say About Us
Matt from Magic Painting is one of the best if not the best contractor/tradesman I have ever worked with. His quote was a little higher than other companies, but the way he explained the process and the materials he used, I knew his product was much better quality. His customer service was excellent, checking in with me periodically to tell me when my cabinets would be painted and reminding me of things I needed to think about as we updated the kitchen. The date he scheduled months before (that's how in demand he is!) was the actual date that he did the job. He was punctual and on time. And most importantly the cabinets turned out AWESOME! We are selling the house so when our real estate agent came to look at the transformation she was blown away. She thought we got new cabinets and recommended that we list the house at a higher price. She said we had found a gem with Matt. Matt's product and service was well worth the money. I just wish other contractors would take some lessons from him on quality and professionalism! He was a dream to work with. His only fault is that he works too hard! He needs a vacation!
My overall experience with Matt and Magic Paint could not have been better. Matt was punctual, neat, informative and generally a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Matt and Magic Painter to anyone considering a kitchen make over
Matt was professional and an exceptional craftsman that genuinely cares about the quality and final results he provides. He is also very reliable; always keeping you apprised of the progress of the job. His estimate of cost and time to completion was right on the mark. Would highly recommend Matt and the service he provides.
I can't even explain how happy we are with the final product - our cabinets look brand new and the finish is awesome ...really unbelievable!! Thank you Matt once again , you are truly a professional !!
I had Matt paint my house, he did a beautiful job. It was done a while ago and still looks beautiful.
