PAINT FINISH SELECTIONS AND SURFACES FOR EXTERIOR PAINTING
Depending on the manufacturer, house paint finishes come with various labels. Below are common terms and recommended uses.

Exterior Paint Finish Types

Flat/Matte
Flat (or matte) paint absorbs light and is good for hiding defects on walls. Flat paint should not be washed. Ideal for main bodies such as stucco, masonry, brick walls, wood siding, aluminum and vinyl siding. Recommended for painting accents, trims and accessories such as soffit, fascia and eaves, wood fences, garage doors and gutters.

Velvet/Satin
Similar use as for flat/matte paint. Velvet paint has the lowest level of shine and also works well to hide defects. Also known as satin paint, it has a washable surface good for cleaning dirt or stains. Ideal for main bodies such as stucco, masonry, brick walls, wood siding, aluminum and vinyl siding. Recommended for painting accents, trims and accessories such as soffit, fascia and eaves, wood fences, garage doors and gutters.

Eggshell/Pearl
Eggshell (or pearl) paint gives a surface the appearance of an eggshell, with more shine than flat paint and greater resistance to cleaning. Ideal for main bodies such as stucco, masonry, brick walls, wood siding, aluminum and vinyl siding. Recommended for painting accents, trim and accessories such as doors and windows, soffit, fascia and eaves, shutters, garage doors, gutters and metal gates.

​Low Sheen
Low sheen paint is similar to eggshell paint, but with greater shine. Ideal for accents, trim and accessories such as doors and windows, soffit, fascia and eaves, shutters, garage doors, gutters, and metal gates.

Semi-Gloss
Semi-gloss paint provides a medium to high level of shine. Similar use as for low sheen paint. Ideal for accents, trim and accessories such as doors and windows, soffit, fascia and eaves, shutters, garage doors, gutters, and metal gates.


​Gloss
Gloss paint is best used to highlight details and is easy to clean. Similar use as for low sheen and semi-gloss paint. Ideal for accents, trim and accessories such as doors and windows, soffit, fascia and eaves, shutters, garage doors, gutters, and metal gates.


​"It's Your Deck" allows two touch-ups from the initial completion of the painting project within the first year. There are several variables that can affect a professional painting project, some of which are out of our control. These include outdated roofs, leaks, faulty gutters, ice damage and back up, shady areas, landscaping that is too close to the house, water damage, etc. We will inform you of any of these things prior to starting the project or upon finding them during the project.
