Approved Exterior paint colors ?
The following links provide the list of approved colors.  The paint numbers are Lowe’s Varspar (house) and Sherman Williams (door). You are not required to use these manufactures but the ARB Application needs to have the approved number. Other manufactures can color match these numbers. Be aware that these online paint colors will not exactly match the paint especially if you use a lower resolution display. You should use the online paint colors to give you a general idea but go to the paint store to get their samples.
