Would you like to increase the value of your home? Is it time to paint your home exterior? 

Do you want your home to better match the architectural flavor of our historic district?

Old Allentown has prepared a Façade Paint Color guide for residents of our historic district and can also be used by those living in neighborhoods throughout the city of Allentown.

Residents now have access to the guide by going to our website at oldallentown.org to improve your home’s façade today! Once on the website, click onto “projects” and the color guide is located on the left side.

All paints are Sherwin Williams, at 2 locations in Allentown:

Sat 8am-12pm

1900 Catasauqua Rd.
