Barn Red on body color.

Sometimes our clients want to go BOLD, and when we say boldly we mean Barn Red on the body of their house. I’ll admit some houses look beautiful that color but before jumping the gun on Barn Red, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind.

– HOA boards aren’t always a huge fan of the color on your body. Mainly because they try to keep the neighborhood painted in calm earth tones.

– It takes 2x the paint most of the time to get the red to cover properly, which means you’ll be paying for 2 coats on the body instead of 1.

– Red will fade much, much faster than any other color. Even the high grade “lifetime” paints will not hold up for long against the sun.
