Below are a few options that can be considered:
Exterior wall inspection: Before deciding the colour schemes it is essential to get an inspection done of your exterior walls. You can approach an expert for this; depending upon the feedback on the condition of the walls you can then take the next step.
Clean up: Once you know the condition of your exteriors you can get them cleaned. This includes washing, scrapping of the old paint, removal of dirt and stains.
