How’s your curb appeal? A fresh coat of paint is a quick, easy and affordable way to spruce up your home’s exterior. Are you thinking about selling your home? Has it been 10 years or more since the last time your home’s exterior was painted? Even if you have a brick home, or one with vinyl siding, what about the doors, shutters and trim, and your front porch? A fresh coat of paint can make your home look like new.
How well is your home protected from the weather? Your home is subjected to the elements each and every day: heat and humidity, cold and freezing temperatures, rain, snow and ice, wind and wind-swept dust and debris, and sometimes even hail. All of these climatic elements can weather your home and make it look tired and old. New paint offers protection and durability.
Hetrick Painting, Inc., can revive your home to its original beauty and luster. Regular exterior painting protects your home from water damage that’s especially common during winter months, making summer an ideal time to repaint, to take advantage of faster drying and curing rates during the warm season. Regular painting also protects against the growth of mold and mildew that can occur in wet and humid seasons. Some paint products reduce scuffing and scratching, making them a good choice for porches and door trim. Finally, a well-maintained, freshly or recently repainted exterior is sure to increase the value of your property.
Our experienced professional painters will give your home’s exterior a complete facelift with expert attention to detail, quality materials, and an affordable price that fits your budget. With Hetrick Painting, you receive full service – exterior siding and trim repairs, siding replacement when needed, power washing, and finally, the finished paint job. We pride ourselves on thoroughness, never ignoring hard-to-reach areas and always taking care with finishing touches. For best results, we use only premium products with long-lasting warranties, from the Benjamin Moore and Sherwin-Williams lines.

If you’re considering an exterior facelift for your home,
here are our top recommendations:
Light colors on main surfaces reflect heat to keep your home cooler in summer. Common light colors are whites, tans and yellows. Dark colors on shutters, doors and trim provide contrast without overheating the home, are easy to clean, and provide excellent durability.
Classic colors like pale blue fit well with traditional, cottage and seaside home designs.
Real estate experts say you can raise the value of your home by thousands of dollars with a black front door. Charcoal and slate gray are also excellent door colors, as well as dark shades of blue, like navy. Most people are afraid of dark paint – don’t be!
Navy is a hot exterior paint color now, but not everyone likes dark colors, so if you’re planning to sell your home soon, or thinking about selling in the next few years, you might choose a neutral shade instead. Whites, pale yellows, grays, tans, and light blues are widely popular among today’s home buyers. A 2015 survey of real estate agents noted that a fresh coat of paint can increase the value of a property by as much as 50%! While you might not enjoy such dramatic results, MSN.com quoted real estate experts in a 2021 story saying that homes with freshly painted exteriors are sure to draw more attention from buyers, and sell faster.
