Gerald Witt Case Study – Home Exterior

Before the rain started coming down here in Yamhill County, the Smith and Company Painting team was still hard at work painting residential home exteriors. Our latest was a 2,703 square foot single family residence in McMinnville, OR. The homeowner hired us to repaint the entire exterior, siding, trim and front porch in just a week.

The first task was to scrape all the loose paint off the siding, trim and front porch. We then primed the bare wood. Priming is an extremely important step of any proper, professional paint job. For this step, the team chose Sherwin-Williams’ Exterior Oil Primer as it works well on bare wood.

We followed the primer with two coats of paint all around the house’s exterior. For the main body, we used Sherwin-Williams’ Duration in Morning Fog. The color number was SW6255. The trim was painted using Sherwin-Williams’ stock “Extra White.”

The project went smoothly and without a hitch. The team had to take special care around some spots that were in a particularly bad shape on the front porch railing. Some trim on the fascia boards also required extra attention. However, the overall paint job was extremely successful and should last the homeowners for a long time. As an added bonus, the homeowner asked us to remove the two TV satellite dishes from the roof and seal the remaining screw holes. Of course, we were happy to help.
