YOUR CHICAGO HOME – EXPERT TIPS ON EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR PAINTING

Expert Remodeling Tips Brought To You Courtesy Of: Xtreme Remodeling of Chicago

A carefully considered and expertly applied exterior or interior paint job will add tremendous value to your Chicago area home. Because a poorly chosen paint scheme can make an otherwise beautiful home appear out of date or emphasize any design flaws, it is crucial to enlist the help of a Chicago area interior and/or exterior paint professional before you make the mistake of attempting a potentially costly do it yourself project. Remember that the design of your home should be considered before choosing exterior paint colors and many historic areas mandate that only specific types of materials and color schemes can be used on the exterior of your Chicago area home.

EXTERIOR PAINTING AND SIDING OPTIONS

The most important rule is: Always choose an expert who knows which colors and materials can enhance the look of your home. Many people neglect to take into consideration the time that a painting project can consume when attempted as a do it yourself project. Make the most out of your valuable time and prevent costly and frustrating mistakes by choosing a professional Chicago painting contractor to do handle painting or siding requirements.

After you have decided on a color scheme and enlisted the professional help of a Chicago remodeling expert, there a quite a few options to consider when it comes to updating your Chicago home with that beautiful splash of color.

  1. Painting – is always an option but repainting every few years and lack of durability may be a good reason to look at some alternatives for the exterior color scheme of your home.
  2. Cement Fiber Siding – this type of siding can easily give the same look as masonry, wood and even stucco. If you want the look of wood but without the high maintenance factor this type of siding is an excellent option.
  3. Stucco Siding – stucco is basically a combination of cement and water and other materials such as lime and sand. Stucco is durable and can be tinted in many shades; however, in heavy moisture areas it is not as durable.
  4. Stone Veneer Siding – limestone, slate granite, river rock and many stone types are easily the most durable of any type of construction material. However, the high price of these materials can easily be price prohibitive. A precast stone veneer professionally installed can achieve the same effect at a much more affordable price point.
  5. Cedar Shingle Siding – constructed of beautiful natural cedar these shingles can be stained and offer the appealing look of wood but generally require less maintenance than wood clapboard. Because cedar shingles are stained rather than painted peeling is minimal.
  6. Wood Clapboard Siding – This is a beautiful choice for a larger home. Cypress, cedar, pine, redwood all make excellent choices and can be stained as well. Wood siding will outlast vinyl side with minimal care and potentially can remain beautiful for many years. Many older stately Chicago homes feature wood clapboard siding and have retained their beauty even after 100 years!

  8. Aluminum Siding – Fireproof and durable and used by many builders as an alternative to vinyl siding this is still a popular choice although often considered “old fashioned”. Aluminum siding won’t potentially crack as does vinyl siding and is popular for being a maintenance free option
  9. Vinyl Siding – Probably the least expensive material to purchase and install vinyl siding is a popular choice of many Chicago home owners’

There are other options to consider, brick veneer siding, engineered wood siding and even seamless steel siding are viable options. With the many options available it is important that you consult with a Chicago based painting and remodeling expert to help you navigate through the many choices and make the correct decision when it comes to adding paint or exterior color to your Chicago home.
