Ravenna Cottage Tudor

The classics never go out of style

"Paint the trim, not the brick"

Client: Jennifer O.

City: Seattle

Neighborhood: Ravenna

Date Completed: July 2010

Date of photo: October 2010

Products: Benjamin Moore brand Aura Exterior paint.

Methods: This house has a southern exposure (show in the picture above) that is never shaded as long as the sun is shining (which in Seattle is about 4 months of the year). Wood siding and trim take a real beating in these conditions and can be expected to need more paint maintenance than the rest of the home. We were tasked with prepping and painting all of the trim on the south side of this house, with the strong focus being on the prep work. After extensive scraping, sanding and priming we coated with Benjamin Moore’s Aura paint as this product gives the best possible color retention for deep colors, like the dark chocolate color used here. Yummy.

Client testimonial: The experience with Step Up went well. The crew showed up on time and was polite and hard working. The job was delayed by one day when the crew realized the paint color was not quite right, however they got the correct color paint and finished the job. The final bill matched the estimate. Gary even came out the day after the crew finished to fix a window that was having trouble closing. I would recommend Step Up to my friends.
