White is our first color because it’s basic and ideal. It goes lovely with every color and always looks pristine. It brings a peaceful energy and works very well with some added lush greenery on the porch.

Lemon Sorbet

This color is actually a purplish blue. It gives a vintage yet royal tone. It will also shift in response to light and will cause a calming wave over you. This color also tends to stimulate creativity and independence, which makes it great for a single woman’s home.

Sailor’s Sea Blue

Because the color blue is thought of with the sky and the sea, it is often associated with depth and stability. It exudes trust, loyalty, and honesty. Because of this, blue is a great color for a family’s home front door.

Shore House Green

Margarita

Citrus green is such a huge contrast and contradiction. It is such an unexpected color that stands out and is thought to, again, stimulate the mind for creativity. It promotes growth in work, friendship, family, and all areas of life.

Gray Cloud

Gray is always a go-to when speaking of front door paint colors. It is an easy neutral color to live with and won’t get old. It contains quiet strength and is much more sleeker and current than the old go-to, beige. Gray also compliments any exterior color.

Black Beauty

Black is classic. It’s elegant and mixes well with absolutely everything, including shingles, stones, and brick. Even though it is so compatible with every color as well, it is most striking when it is paired with a white exterior.

Porch & Patio Clean Up – The Right Way

The fresh warm air of spring is here! We’re going to start migrating to our porches and patios more often now, so let’s get them tidied up. We have constructed an easy 5-step plan to making your porch and patio looks brand new. We know you’re thinking, “Can’t I just use a pressure washer?” Pressure washers will actually cause severe damage to your outside surfaces over time, especially wood. To keep them looking clean and in great condition, follow our quick, little how-to.

Sweep

Start by sweeping the entire area. Anything that gets left from the broom will stick when it gets wet and will become a much bigger pain to deal with than just sweeping.

Hose It Down: Part I

Hose down the plants on and around the area, because by doing this, it will help whatever soap gets on the plants just slide off. If you have a garden, this is a very important step.

Stains

Try to tackle stains first. Ways to take care of stains depends on the different surfaces you’re dealing with. With the right product, it should be quick, fast, and easy no matter the surface.

Deck Brush

Again depending on the type of surface, select your cleaning solution and follow the directions to dilute it. Use a deck brush, or a stiff push broom, to really create some strength. Dip it in the bucket, get the surface wet, and use some serious elbow grease.

Hose It Down: Part II

Hose down the entire area. Make sure you get all the solution off, and let it dry. Your porch and patio are complete!
