Refreshing your indoor scenery with updated wall colors is one of the most affordable ways to breathe life into your space and make it look like new.

As colder weather nears and we prepare to hibernate once again, why not call the professionals at Curb Appeal Painting to help you create a home you’ll say “aah” to every time you walk in?

According to marketing director Rob Drago, the company specializes in beautifying everything from rooms, ceilings and floors to built-in-cabinets, doors and trim, as well as painting kitchen cabinets for a total transformation.

Noting they work with professional-grade Sherwin-Williams paint, the crews are adept at helping people pick out unique color palettes that will work in their homes.

Persimmon is the Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year for 2024.

The 2024 Color of the Year
“Sherwin-Williams has just announced its pick for Color of the Year for 2024,” he says. “Called Persimmon, this earthy terracotta shade with a tangerine undertone works as a neutral yet can stand out if you choose. It’s cozy and warm and would be a great color for any room.”

In general, he says clients are opting for lighter, neutral shades that will stand the test of time.

“But we’re there for them when they want to take chances with deep, somber colors or vivid hues,” says Rob. “We’ve worked on so many different styles of homes over the years, we know what will work and what won’t. There are many beautiful older homes on the East Side. We love restoring them to their original grandeur.”

Kitchen Cabinet Metamorphosis
Anyone living in a “before” kitchen but dreaming of an “after” one should think about giving their cabinets a fresh face by repainting them instead of redoing the whole kitchen.

“Cabinet painting has turned into our number one most requested service for our interior painting division for a reason,” says Rob. “It costs a fraction of replacement, and we can be in and out within three to five days, as opposed to the several months a total renovation can take. A trend we’re seeing this year is people painting their island a fun accent color to differentiate it from their perimeter cabinets.”

Cabinet color resets are among the most requested Curb Appeal Painting services, and a refresh costs a fraction of a remodel.

Custom blending the colors makes a difference, and the seasoned professionals at Curb Appeal can create whatever color best works with homeowners’ décor, functionality and feeling. The finishes are as durable and long-lasting as they are beautiful.

Kitchen cabinets take a lot more wear and tear than other areas of the home. That’s why these painters take extra steps for an ultra-durable effect.

Curb Appeal Painting specializes in beautifying everything from rooms, ceilings and floors to built-in-cabinets, and doors and trim.

Every job begins with the setup, creating a “dust wall” to make sure no dust or spray travels into the home. Then they disassemble doors, drawers and hardware.

“We clean all wood cabinets before applying the primer or sealer coat, then paint,” says compay owner Andrew Smola. “We sand them thoroughly then dust them off and vacuum with a HEPA machine. Then we apply several finish coats, sanding between each one for the best effect.”

No matter the extent of the work, heading into the holidays their schedule starts to book up with people wanting their home to look its best in time for entertaining. Rob recommends getting on the schedule early before the rush hits.

A sister company of Curb Appeal Painting, Curb Appeal Roofing shares the same decades of expertise, training and professionalism. As we head into the fall storm season, the crews have been busy replacing and repairing weathered and damaged roofs all over Northeast Ohio.

“We go the extra mile to repair a roof when possible, so people don’t have to replace it,” says Andrew Smola, owner of the Richmond Heights-based company. “Storm damage is a specialty of ours. When the hail, wind and snowstorms hit, we can be there in no time to offer emergency tarping and cover-up services to keep you safe until we can repair the roof.”

How does Curb Appeal compare to other roofing companies? He notes that when people are seeking estimates, they won’t be the cheapest nor the costliest.

“In a market space with many choices, we differentiate ourselves by offering a VIP level of customer service and top-quality workmanship,” he says. “We help homeowners work with the insurance companies, too.”

As Certainteed Shingle Master Preferred Contractors, Curb Appeal meets and exceeds top-tier industry-wide standards. In addition to homes, they also service the roofs of sheds, garages and pole barns.

Andrew reports their customers appreciate the wide selection being a preferred contractor allows them. They offer about 15 designer colors and styles of shingles to fit different budgets.

Headquartered in Richmond Heights, Curb Appeal Painting and Curb Appeal Roofing work on homes and businesses all over Northern Ohio. All painters and roof technicians are bonded and insured. The company has earned multiple local and industry awards, including Best of Houzz for service, and Super Service Award on Angi, to name a few.
