Communication is the key to building trust in any relationship, business or otherwise. At Crash of Rhinos Painting, we’ve put together a painting communication process that ensures that you are never in the dark.

Here’s how our communication process works:

1. In-person inspection

The process begins with one of our trained professionals coming to your house to conduct an in-person inspection. We will make a video recording of your entire property to identify any problems or issues that we will have to address while painting your home.

2. Proposal folder presentation

Immediately after the inspection is completed, our professional will put together a proposal folder and go over it with you. This information includes information about the job to be done, including the cost, the paint we’ll be using, and the overall scope of the job, as well as information about our insurance documentation and details of our 7-year warranty.

3. Questions and contract

Our technician will go over the folder with you, including a detailed contract, and answer any questions that you may have. The contract is included in the folder, but you needn’t sign it before the technician leaves. Take the time you need to go over the proposal, then sign and send it to us once you’re satisfied with what we offer.

4. Professional color consultation

If you haven’t yet decided on the color that you want for your house’s exterior, the next step in the communication process is a color consultation with one of our professional color consultants. This involves digital renderings that will give you a good idea of what your home will look like at the completion of the project.

5. Progress reports on a daily basis

As a homeowner, you should never feel out-of-the-loop about what’s being done on your propertyThat’s why we follow up with our customers every day to keep them informed of what we plan to work on during any given day, as well as updates on what we’ve already accomplished.

Your home’s outer appearance says a lot about its character, and that’s why it’s important to work with an exterior painting company you can trust. Crash of Rhinos’ communication process fosters that trust by walking with you every step of the way. Contact us today to start the process.

Here are 5 tips for choosing an exterior paint color for your home

choosing an exterior paint colorIs it time to have the exterior of your home painted? Crash of Rhinos Painting is your source for professional and high-quality exterior home painting in the Phoenix area.

In this blog post, we’ll discuss 5 essential tips for choosing an exterior paint color for your home.

1. Consider matching the permanent elements of your home

Most exterior home painting projects don’t also involve replacing the roof tiles, shingles, stonework, driveways, and pathways. If your paint is all that is changing, you need to take these permanent elements into consideration when choosing an exterior paint color for your home.

Consider paints that will tie harmoniously with these existing elements. You should look for undertones when selecting paint for the home exterior. Are they cool (blue, gray, black) or warm (khaki, beige, rust, brown)?

Taking the undertones into consideration will help you in pinning down the right paint color.

2. Keep the geography in mind

The geography of the place should be considered when choosing an exterior paint color for your home. A turquoise-colored house might look great in tropical climates. However, the same color might attract disapproving glances if the house is located here in the Valley.

To avoid this prospect, it’s important to consider the geography or the natural surroundings of the house to select a color.

3. Think about the architectural style

Another important element to consider when choosing exterior paint is the architectural style. For Victorian style houses, the best colors are ones that feature bright hues and majestic jewel tones. In contrast, a modern home should have a subdued hue and tone.

While we’re on the subject: if you have an HOA in your neighborhood, they might have a certain selection of colors you can use. With the color consulting services we offer, we’ll work with your HOA to find out what these colors are and make sure that your house is to regulation.

4. You’ll need to work with Crash of Rhinos to see multiple paint shades

An exterior house color has three main parts: the field color, the accent color, and the trim color. The field color is the dominant part, while the accent color is seen on smaller areas of the house such as door and shutters. The trim color, on the other hand, belongs on the door and window casing, railings, roof edging, and other similar areas.

Generally, a light field color will look great with darker trim. It produces a crisp and dramatic effect, serving as an eyeliner for the home. For accent colors, you should go for bold without going overboard. The bright red and lemon yellow accent colors lend just the right hit of punch, greatly increasing the look of the house.

5. Before you do anything, have us test the paint

One of the things that sets Crash of Rhinos apart from other home exterior painting companies in the Phoenix metro is that we’ll test the paint color on your actual house, in a variety of lighting scenarios, before we start. So, we’ll make sure that the paint looks great on your property. You’ll never been in doubt about what the end product will look like.
