Quick Glance Back: Exterior Color Before and After.

We removed all of the overgrown bushes from the front of the house. Not only is it nice to have a fresh slate for new plants, but we can also glimpse back to the original exterior color. The painters didn’t paint the area behind these plants, and so we are able to appreciate the newly painted deep gray color of the entire house directly compared to the original taupe brown gray.

Below: House color after. Much happier, warmer, fresher, more welcoming, and certainly more to our taste! We still need to replace and paint the patio railing.

Also, most of our gutters are installed and painted bright white to match the rest of the trim work around the house.
