Choosing Exterior Paint
When people choose to paint the exterior of their home, they will generally choose two or three colors. The first is the body color, or the main color of the home. The second is the trim, typically a few shades lighter or darker than the body. If there’s a third color, it is usually used for accents like the shutters or the door.
Since painting the whole outside of a house is a big undertaking, it’s understandable that many people would be nervous about choosing colors. That’s why at Castino Painting and Home Services, we offer our customers the technology that allows them to properly visualize what their home will look like in the new paint. Using photos of your home, a computer program virtually applies paint to your home so you can see what different colors will look like.
A message about lead paint and the new EPA Mandate
A new EPA mandated Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) program went into effect on 4/22/10 and was updated on 7/1/10. This program is designed to protect against lead-based paint hazards associated with renovation, repair and painting. This program mandates that contractors working in homes and child-occupied facilities built before 1978 be trained and certified in lead-safe work practices. Castino has been “lead certified” and we are following all EPA rules and regulations. Our Certification Number is NAT-19937-1. As of 7/1/10, homeowners cannot opt out of this mandate. Castino has the right to refuse any job dealing with lead paint. Non-compliance carries a $32,500 fine for contractors. Please call us with any questions or concerns.
