Lots of scraping and priming has been done on the east side of the house. And the side door looks so much better with a fresh coat of paint! We're really pleased with the quality of work being done. A friend of my husband's from work and his crew are doing it. They are putting a lot of care and effort into their work. The whole job is being done by hand, rather than spraying. It takes more time, but using a brush produces better results.
My husband bought Sherwin-Williams Duration exterior acrylic paint. The painters were really pleased to see we bought a high quality paint. They say it's a lot easier to work with than the cheaper stuff. I hope we get many, many years out of this paint job.
