3 Painting Considerations to Improve Curb Appeal

July 26, 2019

Selling your home is no small venture. You may have repairs to make, updates to complete, and other things to get in order. Have you thought about curb appeal? What are potential buyers going to think when they pull up to your home for the first time? If you’d like to make sure the first impression is a positive one, you should consider new paint for the exterior.

Color Makes a Difference

Take some time to ponder what you’re trying to achieve with the new paint job. Are you looking for timeless colors that won’t go out of style? Are you looking for bold colors that will “wow” potential buyers? Do you want the buyers to feel calm and serene when pulling up to your home? Natural hues will give you the timeless look, bold reds and yellows will “wow” buyers, and blues are known to cause calmness.

Painting the Front Door

If you don’t have a lot in your budget for new paint, you might consider simply having the front door painted. Walking through it for the first time, potential buyers will notice how nice and fresh it looks. You can make the door a statement piece, by painting it a bold color that will stand out against a neutral-colored home, or you can paint it more neutral to contrast a bold-colored home. In either case, it’s a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to increase curb appeal.

Repainting the Trim

Does your home have columns? Shutters? Other decorative trim? Some people prefer to paint the trim the same color as the front door, while others choose a different color entirely. Again, think about what you’re trying to achieve, and ask a professional for help in deciding what will look best.

If you’re about to sell your home, you, no doubt, have a lot on your plate. Before you put it on the market, consider a few home improvements, such as painting the exterior to increase curb appeal. Contact Color World Housepainting by calling 614-215-9184 or sending an email today to get started.


Local Power Couple Brings Color World House Painting to Omaha

July 15, 2019

It Was Love at First Franchise for Throwback Millennials Kalie Shuster and Zach Beutler

Omaha, NE – (July 1, 2019) – Color World, a leading house painting franchise with locations across the Midwest, is proud to expand its reach to Omaha, NE. Two Millennial franchise development pros are leading the charge with the goal of becoming the top painting business in the area.

Kalie Shuster and Zach Beutler, who are engaged to be married August 3, 2019, launched the Omaha location for Color World on May 1, 2019 on a mission to revolutionize the painting industry. Shuster says she believes the idea of giving a home a new look has lost its luster, something she hopes to restore to the industry.

“To me, I feel like a lot of people don’t realize how glamorous and exciting painting can be,” Shuster says. “I want to make house painting and adding new changes to your home as fun and exhilarating as highlights, haircuts, or salons.”

Color World has been proudly serving its customers since 1997, and looks forward to expanding its reach even further. The one-of-a-kind painting company is pleased to bring much more than just fresh coats for homes to Omaha. Color World of Omaha’s range of services also includes gutter installation, power washing, commercial painting, holiday lighting, and even minor drywall and carpentry work.

With this new business, Shuster and Beutler have established themselves as Omaha’s newest power couple.   They share a love story that has blossomed through a shared passion for franchising and farming.

The two met while running franchise operations for a national nutrition franchise. It wasn’t long before Zach made a big move to Omaha to take on the Vice President of Franchise Development position at Franchise Fastlane, a leading national turn-key franchise sales organization (FSO).  Kalie soon followed suit, joining Zach to form a dynamic duo that has helped fuel Franchise Fastlane’s swift ascension to one of the most trusted and highly reputable suppliers in the franchising space (In fact, Franchise Fastlane CEO Ryan Zink was recently featured as one of Omaha Magazine’s 2019 Faces of Omaha).

Recently, the two decided it was time to take the advice they give to so many other aspiring business owners – taking control of their future via franchise ownership.  The two saw Color World as a prime opportunity to do just that while providing a much-needed service to the Omaha community.

“We see it as something that isn’t just relegated to the spring and summer months,” says Beutler. “The company is not a product, it’s a service.”

Beutler and Shuster’s relationship extends far beyond the business world. The couple is planning their upcoming wedding in a rustic, red barn in Omaha for a country party catering to friends and franchise family alike.   They also recently purchased an old farm that had been destroyed and have been working overtime to restore it to its original condition.  They’re investing that effort to honor the original owners and show their future kids what’s possible when you commit to something.

This dedication to blue collar values and simpler times defines this throwback couple.

“We really care about old school values,” says Shuster. “We want to bring back the glamour of painting and restore family traditions. It’s about so much more than a coat of paint, it’s about building a home. That’s what matters most to us in our lives, too, and I think we prove that in everything we do.”

Color World began its franchising initiative in 2016 and has quickly expanded to 7 new locations. The Omaha, NE location is currently open with plans to expand to the Lincoln, NE region in the future.

3 Signs It’s Time To Repaint Your House

June 18, 2019

Cold weather can be harsh for the exterior of homes. The heavy snow followed by the freezing and thawing process can cause damage to the exterior paint. This makes warm months a great time to inspect your home and see if it’s due for a paint job. Here are three of the top signs you should look out for.

1. Peeling Paint

The number one sign most homeowners will recognize is peeling paint. Failure to fix paint when it first begins to peel could cause the wood beneath to become more exposed over time. Rain, mold, mildew, and the resulting wood rot could then lead to structural damage that is far more expensive to fix than just repainting.

2. Chalky Residue

Before paint begins to peel, there are some warning signs. Chief among them is the chalky residue it may leave when you rest your hand against it. Be sure this is the paint though, because dusty roads, nearby construction, or even mold can lead to chalk-like residue on the exterior of your home.

3. Outdated or Inappropriate Colors

There are some house colors that are here to stay. Neutrals can remain in style for a lifetime. However, over time, you may outgrow pink heart designs on the side of the garage or the bright lavender shutters and doors. You may have also bought a home with colors more reminiscent of a 1960s vibe. Whatever the reason, repainting can help make your house truly feel like home again.

Repainting your home is one of the best things you can do to make it look and feel brand new, especially if you plan to sell in the near future. To get your paint job touched up or redone, contact Color World Housepainting by calling 614-215-9184 or sending an email to [email protected] today.

4 Ways You Can Extend the Life of Your Paint Job with Power Washing

May 23, 2019

Power washing the exterior of your building is an important step in extending the life of your paint job. You should always power wash a surface before you start to paint, and periodically after it is already painted for the best results. Whether you are painting the outside of a building, a deck, fence, or other exterior surface, here are four ways that power washing will help your paint job last as long as possible.

  1. Power Washing Removes Mold, Dirt, and Pollen

No one wants the outside of their building to be dirty and moldy, and painting over a surface won’t get rid of any of the dirt. In fact, painting over dirt will negatively affect the appearance of your paint job. In addition, not cleaning the surface before painting will cut the life of your paint job in half.

  1. Power Washing Removes Old Paint

The last thing you want when painting is to mix fresh, new paint with old, flaking paint. Power washing the area first will cause areas with dry, chalking, or bubbling paint to flake off in chips. Just make sure that too much pressure isn’t applied to avoid causing damage.

  1. Power Washing Makes Stained Decks and Fences Look Better

Power washing wood before starting the staining process gives the wood the best appearance possible and allows the stain to adhere better. You should power wash your deck or fence to brighten wood and remove mildew any time you refinish your deck.

  1. Power Washing Rejuvenates a Painted Surface

If your current paint job is looking dingy, sometimes all it needs is a good power washing to remove any built up dirt and mildew. Doing this periodically also helps your paint job last even longer.

Any time a professional cleaning company paints your property, they should always power wash first. For a great paint job that will last for years, contact Color World House Painting at 614-215-9184 or send an email to [email protected] right away.

Why you should Schedule a Color Consultation

May 22, 2019

Tell us if this has ever happened to you before. You decide to make the plunge and repaint the room in your home you’ve long wanted to redo. You have a vision in your head, and you imagine exactly how your chosen shade will look in your space. You know exactly how it will look in the walls, and how the color will complement the furniture and accessories in your home.

With eagerness, you rush to your nearest home improvement store and purchase several cans of the color of your dreams. But when you get home and start putting your chosen paint shade on the walls, that color of your dreams, in reality, becomes the color of your nightmares. The color is nothing like you had in mind, and you find yourself having to start all over again. A problem like this can be an expensive and aggravating one to resolve.

Scenarios like this are the exact reason why having a free color consultation before you begin your interior paint project is highly encouraged. Need further convincing? Here are a few reasons why scheduling a color consultation is always the best first step when painting your room.

It will Save you Time and Money
With today’s hectic schedules and chaotic demands on a personal and professional level taking a lot of your focus, it’s a minor miracle that you even have the time to paint a room of your home! Give yourself the gift of additional time by hiring a color consultant. A quick conversation with them will guide you in the right direction, whereas making this decision alone can often be stressful and overwhelming. And the less time you take to complete the project, the more your budget will be met.

It Incorporates the Latest Design Trends
A color consultant always has their pulse on what colors are in, and which colors are out. While they can provide guidance as to what paint colors today’s designers are paying special attention to, they can also give you a balance to make sure those “now” colors are also timeless and chic. After all, if you painted your home every time a color came in style, you’d be painting your home constantly! A color consultant can help you find the perfect balance between trendy and something you’ll love forever.

It Invites an Unbiased Point of View
Sometimes, you have your heart so set on one vision, it can be difficult to see another point of view. Although no one likes to be told that their ideas for their home are not ideal, sometimes, having a third party weigh in and give their unbiased perspective will ensure that your home looks its best.

When it comes to choosing colors for your home, your friendly and expert team at Color World House Painting put your satisfaction first. That’s why we invite customers who have already chosen their paint color to get two free quarts of paint for free at their local Sherwin Williams store. If you need help determining what paint color is best for your space, a Sherwin Williams representative will visit your home before a Color Consultant arms you everything you need to make the right decision.

How an Exterior Paint Job Will Increase the Value of Your Home

April 24, 2019

If you’re planning on selling your home or would just like to increase your equity by increasing its value, exterior paint is the way to go. Professionals consider exterior repainting to be one of the single most cost-effective ways to increase the actual or perceived value of your home. Here are some of the many ways an exterior paint job can help to make your home more sale-worthy.

Better Curb Appeal

The first impression of your home is a lasting one. If your home is for sale, this may decide whether potential buyers even bother to look inside or drive right by it. Because of this, many real estate agents will redo the exterior paint even on fixer-uppers that are a mess on the inside. This gives the buyer an idea of what the finished product might look like from the outside looking in.

Attracts Attention for the Right Reasons

How often has a red or turquoise door with matching window trims caught your eye? Probably quite a few times, if you really think about it. Even when you’re not a big fan of the color, the fact that it made you look is a great indication of the power of a splash of color on a house for sale. This is why so many agents paint the front door in red, yellow or other bold colors.

Highlights Selling Points

Are there certain details of the house you wouldn’t want a buyer to miss? Color might be a great way to point those out. Whether it’s the brand-new mailbox, large Roman pillars at the main entrance, or newly installed steps from the back terrace to the yard, the color can really help to indicate what’s worth noting without every needing to say a word.

Are you ready to add a new coat of paint to the exterior of your home? Contact Color World House Painting by calling 614-215-9184 or sending an email to [email protected] to book a consultation.

4 Reasons To Schedule Your Exterior Painting Job Now

March 18, 2019

Spring is right around the corner which means it’s about that time to get started on all your home improvement projects. As you begin to map out your thoughts, make sure to include painting the exterior of your home on that list. Here are four reasons why painting the exterior of your home now is both beneficial and important.

Perfect Temperatures

There is no better time of year to complete an exterior painting project than the spring. Not only will the professional you hire appreciate the mild temperatures, but the paint will too. In fact, latex paint is known to go on more cleanly and develop a more durable finish when applied in milder temperatures found in this time of year. If it’s too hot outside, the paint can dry too fast and not have the proper film formation, which can lead to the lifespan of your paint being greatly decreased.

Protect Your Investment

Inadequate exterior painting can be damaging to other aspects of your home which can lead to more expensive repair jobs. For example, the wood that makes up the structure of your home begins to rot when continuously exposed to the sun, wind or moisture. Not providing the proper coverage during the spring leads to more damage and costly repairs in the summer.

Protect Your Plants

Completing your exterior paint project now ensures that your plants can grow unencumbered. You can plant your garden and shrubbery without the fear of them being trampled or having to work around them.

First Impressions Matter

As great as your plans are to remodel the interior of your home, the first thing that visitors will notice is how the outside looks. An unattractive paint job leaves a bad first impression regardless of what may be on the inside.

Your exterior paint job plays an important role in your home, including helping to maintain its value. Now that spring is almost here, contact the professionals at Color World House Painting by calling 614-215-9184 or sending an email to [email protected] to schedule an initial consultation today.

What to Know about Residential and Commercial Interior Painting

February 19, 2019

In what ways do you attempt to make the interior of your home or business stand out from the rest? Maybe you’ve carefully selected furniture that wordlessly expresses the unique personality of your family or your company brand. Perhaps you’ve incorporated certain design elements into the building’s architecture that you know are unique and innovative. While these are all great ideas, one of the most common and easiest ways to make a home’s interior stand out is to thoughtfully choose a paint color.

When it comes to selecting a color, keep in mind that color can really make or break a space and how people function in it. That’s why, when choosing wall and flooring colors, it’s important to keep the goal of the space in mind. If energetic work is being performed in a space, warm, exhilarating tones might be good to consider, for example.

How Often Should You Paint the Interior of Your Home?

January 9, 2019

If you painted your home when you first moved in, it’s probably been a few years since the interior walls got a fresh coat. But how often do you really need to repaint a home’s interior? Not only is this project an easy way to give any room a brand-new look with a new color, it also provides a fresh, clean feel.

Consider Use

In general, the rooms where your family spends the most time will need to be repainted before rooms that are rarely used. Keep the following guidelines in mind:

  • Five to seven years for the living room and dining room
  • Three to four years for the kitchen and bathroom
  • Two to three years for child bedrooms
  • Four to five years for adult bedrooms
  • Two to three years for hallways

Ceiling paint tends to last longer. You’ll probably need to repaint the ceiling after 10 years. In contrast, baseboard and trim shows wear quickly. Plan for a fresh coat every two to three years.

Look at Wear and Tear

When washing the walls doesn’t remove those dings, scuffs and scratches, a fresh coat of paint will make all the difference. These items can be removed with small repairs, but without new paint the seams will eventually start to show. Opt for a professional paint job with premium paint to ensure your rooms look great for years.

Don’t be afraid to repaint if you just don’t like the color anymore. Life’s too short to live with a hue that drives you crazy. Maybe you went the DIY route when you painted your living room and the finish isn’t holding up as well as it should. Whatever the reason for new interior paint, you’ll be thrilled with the results.

Color World House Painting offers high-quality residential painting with professional results. Our six-step process starts with a free, accurate quote and includes the preparations needed for a fantastic paint job. Contact us today by calling 614-215-9184 to get started.
