Choosing Color and Sheen

When choosing between a dark vs. light color and a shiny vs. dull finish, there are several things to keep in mind. The decision is usually between aesthetics and durability. Lighter colors and glossier paints tend to hold up better, but you may not want to have the shiniest house on the block. You should also consider the color of your brick and mortar. You may find that a darker color coordinates with better with your brick. Call to have one of our trained staff asses your project.
