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 Houston 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 Houston 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 Carnival Custom 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
Amazing experience! Ron was prompt calling me back and gave me an estimate quickly. He had a cancellation and was able to send him guys out the next day! They fixed a wall that a handyman had screwed up and painted other rooms for us. His guys were professional and his prices were very reasonable. We will definitely be using Ron and Carnival in the future for all of our painting needs. Thanks again!
I have used Carnival for my home, my mom's home and 3 rentals. They are professional and competitive. They are there when they say they are and they did an excellent job on all 5 houses. I highly recommend them!
Excellent work, prep, and communication from Ron and his crew. They prepped and painted the entire exterior of our home in about three days and did a great job. Highly recommend and would use again!
Excellent service and exterior painting on our home. Ron and crew did a superb job as promised and in just 3 days including a pressure wash. Written estimates are free and very thorough. Thanks guys for an excellent job!! Will call on you again as needed.
Great!! Ron Forest came to our home precisely when he said he would. He gave us a cost estimate and provided a detailed booklet including cost, schedule, scope of work and warranty. The painting crew, lead by Luis Hernandez, were punctual, polite and extremely talented. They were very good about protecting our belongings with plastic and drop clothes. They left the house in immaculate condition, including power washing the driveway. We made several change orders (because the crew was doing an outstanding job, we kept adding projects) and had a few special requests all of which were handled by Ron with the comment "No Problem". The work was completed on time and on budget. We are thrilled with the results and plan to use Ron and his team for all of our future painting needs. We strongly recommend Ron Forest and Carnival Custom Painting.
A really great job. Carnival painters spent time on prep work for our exterior painting to make sure the job was done right and then did an excellent job with absolutely no mess left behind. And right on budget too. Very pleased with the work!
Did a great job and plan to hire them again.
