Ask an Expert: Matching Exterior Finishes After an Addition

Q. We are planning an addition to our home this Spring. How do we go about matching exterior finishes of the original home and the addition so they will work together without having to redo the whole exterior?

Matching Exterior Finishes

A: Even if you can find the same products used on the original house, fading and wear on the original home will make it very hard to match the colors exactly. An easy and affordable option is to have the entire house professionally painted once the addition is complete!

Using a revolutionary paint system, Spray-Net can give both the old and new parts of the home a factory finish that gives the whole home a brand-new look, not a repainted one!

This might also be a great time to update your color scheme for a more modern look and at a fraction of the cost of replacing all your exterior finishes! – Melissa Grasso,
