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 Clemson 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 Clemson 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 Leonard Shepherd 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 People Say About Us
Excellent work! They got us in a few days early which was great. We had four ceilings done (2 bath and 2 rooms). Hard working, cleaned as they went. They removed the popcorn and painted. What a difference. I plan to get my house exterior painted with them.
Highly recommend! Did great work on our ceilings and was also very punctual and kind.
I chose Leonard to do a remodel on my home that included removing the popcorn ceilings, painting the entire house, refinishing the cabinets, pressure washing the house and staining the concrete floors on the screen in porch and on the garage floor and it looks completely amazing like a brand new house. I couldn't ask for better communication and service he even helped pick out the colors and can't thank him enough.
When I decided to put my home on the market I hired Leonard and his crew they worked at my home for several months painting,removing popcorn ceilings,changing lighting,pressure washing,and staining the concrete floors on the screen porch and also the garage and I couldn?t be more pleased it added so much value to the house not to mention Leonard was a pleasure to work with always good communication and punctuality from now on I wouldn?t hire anyone else.
We were very pleased with the outcome of the exterior paint job that Leonard and his crew did for us. They also took down storm windows and washed them as well as outside windows. We would certainly recommend him for your painting needs.
Called around a few days looking for someone professional to handle some painting around my business. After the third estimate and many conversations we chose Leonard. Very glad we did. Very professional. Showed up when he said he would and handled the project a day before scheduled. It looks amazing and we couldn't ask for a better job. Thank you sir. You and your people are amazing. We will be recommending you to everyone. God bless!!
