5 Trends in Exterior Colors That Will Give Your Home Outer Beauty

Choosing a paint color for your home’s exterior can seem like a crazily daunting task. So many options! So crucial in making the right first impression on guests or potential buyers!  Should you go with basic beige, ho-hum neutral colors or (way) outside the paintbox?

Thanks in part to influential designers like Joanna Gaines, more homeowners today are stepping away from the traditional paint colors and choosing less common, modern palettes, like cheery teal or moody charcoal gray.

“We’re seeing homeowners go a bit bolder when it comes to curb appeal,” says Erika Woelfel, vice president of color and creative services at Behr. “While variations of white traditionally make a popular exterior paint color choice for many different types of housing styles—and are an easy way to play it safe—dark grays and browns are increasing in popularity … [or] painting the body a bold color like green or

How to Make Your Own Exterior House Cleaning Solution | Home Guides

Much like anything that sits outdoors season after season, your home’s exterior gets dirty from pollution, pollen, dust and rain. Instead of cleaning the outside of your house with a melange of mysterious chemicals found in some cleaning products, whip up your own homemade siding wash with water and a little soap, oxygen bleach or even vinegar depending on the situation.

Washing Cedar Shakes

Cedar-shake siding requires special care, as some harsh chemicals could cause it to discolor or even wear prematurely. Clean the outside of the house with bleach and water to remove mildew, algae and dirt. Mix one part bleach with three parts lukewarm water in a large bucket or directly in a pump sprayer if you have one.

If using a pump sprayer, spray the solution on one small area at a time, let it sit for 15 minutes and then rinse it off with a garden

Tips and Tricks for Painting a Home’s Exterior

1. Consider Mother Nature

Plan ahead when painting. The time of year is key, so understand your local weather patterns. Select a dry time of year when there is little rain and lower humidity. Paint needs time to dry and will not adhere to surfaces that are not dry.

2. Quality Over Price

Better quality paint means you will paint fewer times over the years, and you’ll get better coverage when you do paint. Paint technology has improved dramatically in the past few years, with colors guaranteed to last longer than ever before. You may be tempted to skimp on paint to save money up front with a cheaper brand, but you’re bound to have trouble and eventually pay more in the long run.

3. Sand and Wash

Paint won’t adhere very well to dirty or rough surfaces, so be sure to clean the siding and trim thoroughly, allow to

Exterior algebra – Wikipedia

Algebraic construction used in multilinear algebra and geometry

Orientation defined by an ordered set of vectors.

Reversed orientation corresponds to negating the exterior product.

Geometric interpretation of grade n elements in a real exterior algebra for n = 0 (signed point), 1 (directed line segment, or vector), 2 (oriented plane element), 3 (oriented volume). The exterior product of n vectors can be visualized as any n-dimensional shape (e.g. n-parallelotope, n-ellipsoid); with magnitude (hypervolume), and orientation defined by that of its (n − 1)-dimensional boundary and on which side the interior is.[1][2]

In mathematics, the exterior product or wedge product of vectors is an algebraic construction used in geometry to study areas, volumes, and their higher-dimensional analogues. The exterior product of two vectors u and v, denoted by uv, is called a bivector and lives in a space called the
