matching exterior paint after remodel

We will be remodeling our home, adding a second story in the next year. I want to paint the first story now, then the second story after rebuild. Will the paints match?

My concern is that the paint on the addition will stand out against the paint on the first level.

If you use good paint that doesn't fade the colors should match.

It is hard to imagine that a 2nd floor could be added without marring the first floor paint. I would consider either waiting until then to paint or planning on a quick 2nd coat of paint on the first floor when the 2nd is painted.

personally, i wouldn't risk it! wait till it's all done & put a nice coat of paint on everything all at once as the finishing touch!
