Your House is a Canvas

Your house is your canvas, but it is not blank.  When painting the exterior of your home there are elements to take into consideration when selecting color.  What color is your roof?  Is it terra cotta tile or perhaps gray slate?  It makes a difference.  How about a brick or stone façade?  If you look closely, you can see subtle color differences in the stone that can be used for inspiration.  You could paint the fascia in one of those colors taken from the stone.  Sometimes brick will be distressed with flecks of white and black.  A couple of the best colors that will complement brick is green or even the right shade of gray.  Reds compete with the brick, so I stay away from those.  If the front door is within view of the brick, then painting it a beautiful gloss black is a great choice.

What about painting the interior of your home?  Inspiration for the right color can come from several places.  You could use a favorite piece of art, a chair or even a pillow.  Consider one of the colors that you wear that gets you the most compliments.  Most likely it’s one of your favorite colors, so you will be happy seeing it on your walls every day.  When selecting a paint color for your interior, you really must consider the flooring, the countertops in the kitchen, and the stain on the cabinetry.  And don’t forget your furnishings.  There are many more elements to be considered when selecting a paint color for the interior of your home, so hiring a professional painting contractor that has a color consultant on staff is essential.

Your house may be your canvas, so don’t forget to draw from the surrounding elements for color inspiration and selection.

Brooks did a fantastic job on our exterior and interior paint jobs. Quality was high, price was reasonable, and the team was extremely professional and detail-oriented. Mark was our crew lead and the team performed a number of exterior wood repairs, a door re-stain, interior and exterior painting. Mark clearly takes a lot of pride in his work and went above and beyond to ensure the work was high-quality, including finding exact matching siding to fix dry rot, and performing minor repairs that weren't even included in the quote. He and the team were all consistently positive and personable, joking with each other throughout the day, while also genuinely complimenting each other on the quality of their work. It was great to see, and that positivity definitely showed through the work they did. We couldn't be happier with the end result.

You are an excellent company and I couldn't be any happier with your work. This is your second job for me and both were excellent.

Brooks Painting has be in business a long time in our area. As a native resident we have seen and heard of their professional & quality painting. In looking for bids on painting our house Brooks was referred numerous times. When Jeremy came out to meet us we were sold on using their services and looked no further. Every aspect of this company was very upfront, professional and made us feel safe, valued and comfortable hiring them. The office staff kept good communication with us. The color matching was perfect. The crew showed up on time, were respectful and did a great job from prep to the final end of the project. The warranty offered was a plus and the liability coverage gave us peace of mind also. The price was well worth all that was included in the project so we had little to do but move our stuff away from the house. Thank you Brooks painting, crew and staff for making our home new again :)

They treat their employees in a fair manner resulting in happy workers. Company is well run. I really like the crew that was here, they were very comfortable to have around.

We chose Brooks Painting based on their excellent reputation. It was an excellent choice! We had them do a complete exterior and almost complete interior painting of our two story house. They were done separately, while we were out of town. We are very pleased with the quality of the work. They even fixed up a few mistakes made by a crew that painted a portion of our interior ceilings a month prior (removal of asbestos popcorn ceiling), at no extra charge. Cleanup was great, also. They repaired some dry rot that was uncovered (extra charge, but worth it), and they even moved furniture back into place as well as put back the curtain rods that I had taken down, which wasn't expected. I highly recommend them, and will use them again for any future paint jobs.

Brooks Painting painted our home in Sacramento in March of 2022. Tim did a great job power washing our home. Corey, Flint, and Kristen were very helpful in the bid and. planning. process. The painting crew was excellent. Arrived on time each day and the project was finished in 5 days as promised. All worked very hard.

Chris and Gabriel were amazing. Corey was patient and helpful in answering questions and while I decided on colors. The office was easy to contact and had good follow-through. Thank you so much to Brooks for a job I could not possibly be happier with. Feel free to use me as a reference!

Eric and his crew were on time every day and did a very thorough job. I was thrilled that they were willing to paint my outdoor light fixtures which were getting rusty. I was particularly impressed how much time they spent going over their work at the end to catch spots that were missed. I’ll be using them again for interior painting.
