Exterior Painting

Whether your house is newly constructed or purchased from a previous owner, painting its exterior is the first step toward making it your home. An easy and cost-effective way to ensure a warm look and feel, painting can also rejuvenate your home with your own individual design statement.

To achieve a durable and long-lasting paint job, the first step is preparation, and the second step is using a quality coating. Because different surfaces require different preparations and coatings, it is important to discuss your home’s materials — whether drywall, plaster, stucco, brick, or wood — with your local authorized Benjamin Moore retailer.
