Capitol Hill Exterior Painting Job

In Exterior Painting, Recent Work by MatthewLeave a Comment

Sound Painting Solutions recently finished painting the exterior of a house in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. This was a detailed project as there were multiple colors and areas of the home to paint. The client was looking for a big color transformation as the home was previously painted white. This blog post highlights the process of painting this house.

Our painters prepared this house for painting by first pressure washing to clean all the surfaces. The crew applied latex caulking to cracks, gaps, and nail holes in the siding to prevent moisture from entering and causing rot. We also scraped and sanded areas of peeling paint and applied a primer coat on the areas of raw wood before applying the paint. After completing the prep work, the painting started. We first sprayed out two coats of the siding, with back brushing and rolling as necessary to get the paint to absorb into the substrates. The crew then hand painted all the trim pieces, like the window frames and belly bands, with either a brush or roller to be precise and cut clean lines.

We used multiple Sherwin Williams colors for this project. The two body colors are called Rookwood Shutter Green (SW 2809) and Gallery Green (SW 0015). We used Sherwin Williams SuperPaint product in a flat sheen for these colors. The trim was painted in this color called Nonchalant White (SW 6161). The product we used for the trim was Sherwin Williams Emerald in a satin sheen. During the color selection process, the client used Sherwin Williams ColorSnap Tool to see how the colors may look applied to the house. The photo of the render from the tool is below so you can compare it to the finished job. Read this previous blog post for a tutorial on the color tool.
