Transform the Outdated and Ugly With a Painting Contractor

Tue, 24 Oct 2017 21:26:46 +0000

Foothills Painting loves keeping homes and businesses in northern Colorado up to date! A big part of staying up to date is routine maintenance and updates, but we understand that updates to your home or business aren't always possible. However, going too long without maintenance work or an update can lead to your home or business becoming outdated – or worse, ugly. If this has happened to you, don't fear: Foothills’ professional painting contractors are more than capable of transforming the outdated parts of your home or business into current and good looking spaces. Healthy Paint Often the exterior paint is the most recognizable indication of your home or business being outdated. We can boil this potential problem down into two categories: outdated physically and outdated stylistically. The physical condition of your home’s exterior paint job is more important than you might think. Not only does weathered paint look bad, but it fails to protect and seal your home the way the original paint job was designed to. Don't know what to look for in terms of physical deterioration? Our painters would love to assist you in inspecting your home or business’ exterior paint job. Any chipping, cracking, or molding paint should be fixed with a new coat of paint. Foothills will provide you with advice you can trust when it comes to whether or not you should repaint your home or business due to physical deterioration. If you do need a new paint job, Foothills would love to help you with it. Out of Style Even if your exterior paint is healthy, it might just be out of style! We’ve been painting homes and businesses for quite a while, so we know the “in colors.” We also know how paint color affects homes. If you’re not sure if your exterior paint job is out of style, our painters can answer that question for you! Picking an exterior paint color for your home or business is an important decision that can affect your home’s curb appeal or your revenue. If you know that your paint job could use an update but you’re not sure what color would be the best choice, our painters would love to assist you with a color consultation. Interior Upgrade The interior of your home or business is just as important as the exterior, and the paint job in both settings is a huge contributing factor to how you view your space and how guests and employees view it. An outdated or ugly living room just isn’t fun to look at, let alone sit in. Foothills’ contractors can transform any outdated area in your home into a welcoming and engaging space for both you and your guests. When it comes to your business, you need a current interior paint job. An outdated interior paints a horrible picture of your business. Not only does it bore employees, leading to decreased production, it looks terrible to customers who enter your office space. The last thing you want is for a potential customer to think that your business is behind the times because of its interior paint job. If you need an interior paint job transformation for your business, our contractors would be a great choice. We are experienced at working in commercial settings, and have mastered the balance of completing quality work without disturbing our customers’ office operations. If you think your home or business could use an updated paint job, feel free to contact our painters. We specialize in excellent customer service, clear communication, and quality painting service!

4 Underrated Interior Paint Colors for Your Home

Fri, 29 Sep 2017 14:08:37 +0000

Foothills Painting understands that your home is unique and special to you and your family. If you’re thinking about painting your home’s interior, consider a color choice that will highlight just how unique your most personal space is. In the world of interior design, there are definitely some hard and fast dos and don’ts, and following the crowd is often the best – and safest – option. But when it comes to painting your home, you can afford to experiment with less conventional colors. Sure, you have your safe and popular options of paint color, like white, blue, and neutrals, but what about the less conventional colors? We thought we’d take some time to love on the underdogs and highlight four underrated interior paint colors that we think would look great in your home. Purple Purple can be polarizing; people usually either love it or hate it. However, everyone can agree that purple is eccentric. Whether you want to jazz up your home with a small project, or paint an entire room, purple is flexible. Depending on the shade, purple can be used in a variety of different ways and in many different rooms. Don’t want to follow the crowd and paint your bedroom blue? Consider a moody purple like violet. Violet is deep without being dark, so it will have the same relaxing effect in your bedroom that blue would. Maybe you have a large room with a lot of natural light. A light shade of purple like lavender is a unique and refreshing choice that can be used on entire walls or for detailing – on crown molding for instance. However you use purple in your home, one thing is for sure – you’ll be part of the brave few who do! Yellow It’s hard not to feel happy when you’re looking at yellow. Yellow is extremely adaptable in interior painting because it can be bold without being overpowering, or light without being boring. Whatever shade of yellow you choose, it’s sure to set a happy and cheerful tone in the room you use it in. Yellow is great for accent walls if you want to add a splash of color to a room without undertaking a huge painting project. A deep yellow would probably be the best option if you’re going that route, however. All in all, your home will become more welcoming and cheerful with a dose of yellow. Green Green is seriously underrated in interior painting. We think of green as blue’s little brother. If you’re going for the tranquil feel of blue, but still want to be unique, consider green. The color of healing, green is a soothing color choice that would be great in any room that you want to make feel peaceful. It can create a more traditional mood in lighter shades, or a more eccentric and bold mood in darker shades. Orange Orange often gets a bad wrap for being obnoxious. This is fair. But we think a deeper, calmer orange like burnt orange looks great in homes! If you’re thinking about repainting a room in your home, consider this color. Burnt orange is welcoming without being too stimulating, and it works for entire rooms or in small amounts. We’d suggest burnt orange in rooms where you want guests to feel welcomed and cozy, like the living room or dining room, but the choice is yours! We Can Help These four color choices are underrated and sometimes tricky to pull off. If you’re unsure about how to implement a unique color in your home, our professional painters would be more than happy to help you with color choices. We have been serving families and businesses in the northern Colorado area for almost 20 years, and specialize in excellent customer service and quality work. Give us a call if you’re ready to get your painting project started! The post 4 Underrated Interior Paint Colors for Your Home appeared first on Foothills Painting. [...]

When is the Best Time to Paint the Exterior of Your Home?

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 14:44:51 +0000

You’ve decided to paint your home! Congratulations! Now for the hard part: when are you going to start your project? Painting the exterior of your home can be trickier than the interior, the main reason being that the great outdoors is unpredictable. Weather is the determining force in the world of exterior painting, and unfortunately it doesn’t always cooperate. But there’s good news: from years of experience, Foothills Painting knows the best times to paint your home! Let’s start with what you need to know about the ideal conditions for painting your house. Ideal Conditions Paint drying is related to temperature and moisture. So while it’s obvious that you don’t want to paint your house while it’s raining outside, you also don’t want to paint when the temperature outside is extremely cold or hot. Extreme temperatures can cause paint to dry unevenly, lead to clumps, or expose brush strokes in the paint while it’s drying. Generally, the months in the middle of winter or summer aren’t great for painting your home. Humidity is an important moisture factor to consider and often gets forgotten because it isn’t a direct form of moisture like rain or snow. Your house may look completely dry from the curb, but porous materials like wood and mortar might be damp because of humidity. Whenever you paint, you’ll want a warm and dry day and to ensure that all of the surfaces you’re going to paint are dry as well. Know Your Window Having ruled out the extreme months of summer and winter, we’re starting to get a window of time to work with. It is important to remember that depending on where you live, this window might be different. While exterior painting in Texas might be possible until December, it might only be viable until October in Michigan! It’s important to know your window where temperatures won’t be extreme, but will also be fairly static. This means that temperatures wont fluctuate too much from daytime to nighttime, as this confuses paint as it’s trying to cure. Generally, good windows for painting  are early summer months and early fall months because of minimal rain and temperature fluctuations. Planning and Prep Plan, plan, plan! With all the factors that go into your painting project, you need to make sure that you have everything straight before you start. So what are some things to think about and prepare for? Most importantly, you need to plan for the weather. However, this involves more than just picking a few clear days for your painting window. You’ll need to ensure that the days leading up to and after painting are dry so that your house can dry out, and so that your paint doesn’t get rained on while it’s drying. You’ll also want to check the weather for the nights in your painting window. Sometimes people forget that paint is still dying at night! The weather isn’t the only thing to plan for. Different types of primer, paint, and finish can affect when you should paint your house – and there are A LOT of paint options out there. Need help prepping for your exterior painting project? From deciding what type of paint is best for your home, to settling on the right time to begin painting, our professional painters want to help! Call us today! Whether you just need help starting, or you’d like us to handle your whole project, Foothills specializes in excellent customer service, prompt and clear communication, and extreme attention to detail. We won’t leave until you’re 100% satisfied with our work! The post When is the Best Time to Paint the Exterior of Your Home? appeared first on Foothills Painting. [...]
