When you see a house that stands out, often it’s the exterior trim paint choices that make the difference.
It’s similar to the toppings of an ice cream sundae. Ice cream is delicious on its own, but when topped with sauce, sprinkles, and a cherry, it becomes simply amazing.
Exterior trim paint can be used to contrast with the house paint, allowing architectural aspects to stand out. It can also be part of a similar color palette, providing a consistent but full and welcome aesthetic.
Even a house with little trim might benefit from having the exterior window trim painted to give it a more polished appearance.

The crew arrived on time each day and worked with great care to prepare the trim for painting. They applied two coats of paint to the trim and cleaned up each day. I absolutely enjoyed working with everyone throughout this project.
Communication with Chris Heiler and Robert was great. They made sure the work on the trim of garage was repaired and painted very nicely as well and putting up the new shutters and taking down the old. Great work.
Total transformation! Went from semi-gloss white exterior trim on 1962 ranch to satin graphite on 1962 mid-century. Heiler team worked with homeowner to coordinate painting effort with sash replacement seamlessly. Knew this was a good fit at initial consult with CJ, who showed up promptly, was attentive and professional. Thanks to the guys on the ground as well including Mark, Steve, Mike and especially Brian for going the extra mile.
The Heiler painting team did a phenomenal job prepping and painting the inside of our entire 1930s era home from ceiling, walls, trim, windows, doors and more. Rick and his team (Dennis, Mel, Dwight and Del) were fantastic! They were friendly, professional, courteous, and efficient. They transformed this old house into a thing of beauty in under one week. Many thanks for a job well done!

Exterior Trim Painting FAQs
What are the best colors for exterior trim paint?
Tone is essential. If you have a warm skin tone, a harsh white will seem out of place. Consider the entire house as an one unit, and choose colors that complement one another rather than merely your favorite. White is a wonderful option if you have white vinyl windows. However, that white is usually too harsh for the outside window trim, so select a darker but similar tone to the remainder of the home. If you have shutters, you may match your trim to the color of the shutters.
How hard is it to paint exterior trim in my home?
This project usually requires a ladder, solid base and a steady hand with a brush. It is a fairly time-consuming project that needs done in good weather and with specific paint. Of all the painting jobs, this one might be one most suited for the professionals.
How often should the exterior trim be painted?
The recommendation is every 5-10 years. Weather conditions and quality of work play a big part of how long your efforts will last.
