Whether you just moved into a new home and want to update its look, or you’ve lived in your house for a while and just want a change, exterior home painting from Castino Painting and Home Services are just what you need. Since 1974, we have provided Lake Bluff homeowners as well as North Shore and Chicagoland residents with professional and reliable home painting and home improvement services.
How to Choose the Best Colors for Your Home
There are so many color combinations for your home’s exterior, you may not know where to start when it comes to choosing one. The most common way home exteriors are painted is by choosing one color for the body, one color for the trim, and one color for accents (things like doors, shutters, and ornate trimmings). Generally speaking, the trim should be a few shades darker or lighter than the body, but there aren’t necessarily any rules you’re required to follow. Our consultants can help you figure out which colors to consider, depending on what you want your home to look like.
If you have no starting point with which to consider colors, or have several combinations in mind, you’re in luck. At Castino Painting and Home Services, our exterior painting consultants use a computer program that uses color simulator technology to help homeowners choose the best color scheme for their homes. The program takes photos of your actual home and applies colors to it, a sort of virtual-home-painting tool, so that you can envision what a certain palette will look like when it’s been painted.
Using this technology allows us to help ensure our customers are totally satisfied with the projects we do on their home. And since our goal is 100% customer satisfaction, we’ll work with you from start to finish—from design to follow-through—to make sure that you love our work and how your home looks. We strive to provide high quality professional painting and home improvement services to homeowners all over Chicagoland, including Lake Bluff and all of the North Shore, and you can be confident in the work we do.

A message about lead paint and the new EPA Mandate
A new EPA mandated Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) program went into effect on 4/22/10 and was updated on 7/1/10. This program is designed to protect against lead-based paint hazards associated with renovation, repair and painting. This program mandates that contractors working in homes and child-occupied facilities built before 1978 be trained and certified in lead-safe work practices. Castino has been “lead certified” and we are following all EPA rules and regulations. Our Certification Number is NAT-19937-1. As of 7/1/10, homeowners cannot opt out of this mandate. Castino has the right to refuse any job dealing with lead paint. Non-compliance carries a $32,500 fine for contractors. Please call us with any questions or concerns.
