House Exterior Before and After

We had the house painted and some other things done on the exterior this summer.  We went from a butter yellow/cream to a warm grey on the siding.  We kept the white trim, but re-painted it.  We bought new shutters changing them from brown louvered to black paneled.We also had the accents on the house painted black to match the new shutters.  We had a custom-made steel porch rail installed and a new front door made and painted peacock blue with a new door handle.  We had new garage doors installed because the old ones had dry rot, since they had not been treated on the inside.  We went with a slightly different style for the windows in the garage door.  Lastly, we removed the shutters from the lower part of the house to expose more brick.

Paint Colors: 

Grey – Kwal color matched to Benjamin Moore Secret AF-710

White – Kwal White (whitest white they had, not sure of the name)

Black – Kwal Black (blackest black they had)

Peacock Blue – Behr Moonlit Pool
