Exterior Painting Tips

Posted By on March 29, 2021

Our community has established a wonderful collection of approved Dunn-Edwards color schemes for every subdivision. As a homeowner, this provides you the convenience of selecting a professionally designed color scheme without the hassle of starting the color selection process from scratch. Please note, an application is always required for exterior changes, including painting as color matching is no longer an option.

The task of picking an exterior paint color scheme can feel a bit daunting. As your first step, we always suggest visiting a local Dunn-Edwards store to have them assist in providing you with actual paint color chips for referencing the approved color schemes. To ensure they show you the correct color schemes, be sure to let them know which neighborhood you are part of within Orangecrest (Zip Code: 92508).

We will not get into all of the technical reasons why colors are not accurate while viewing on a computer monitor, smartphone, or printing at home. Just trust us when we say there is no substitute for viewing physical paint chip samples. You can visit the Color-Ark® Pro section of the Dunn-Edwards website (https://www.dunnedwards.com/colors/archive/color-ark_pro) to order paint chip samples. To find our Association, you can search by location with Zip Code “92508” or search by keyword with “Orangecrest.” Identify your neighborhood within the Association by finding your street name below:
