In this blog post, we’re sharing a behind-the-scenes look at our exterior painting process and showcasing an amazing residential Romabio exterior limewash transformation in Chapel Hill, North Carolina!


Before Applying Romabio Limewash


Before our team began this exterior painting project, our color team worked closely with the client to choose the best colors, sheens, and paint products to ensure long-lasting, high-quality results. This was especially important since we were going to be painting the exterior brick

Here, you can see some color renderings to help narrow down color options before our Limewash sample day.

Prior to beginning the painting process, we went through exactly what paint products and colors would be used on each part of their exterior.

Limewashing Process

After completing our paint product list and notes and verifying all choices with the client, we began the process of adequately cleaning and preparing the exterior for paint. This involved pressure washing to remove dirt, grime, and other substances before going in with paint. This is a key step for any exterior painting project that we take very seriously at Oak City Coatings. 

Our team then went in and applied all selected paints using our professional processes and techniques. 

The Romabio Lime Wash went on smoothly on this exterior and looked amazing! You can read more about why we recommend Romabio exterior products when painting brick here.

After Applying Romabio Limewash

After the painting project at the Chapel Hill project was complete, you can see the visual impact of the Romabio Lime Wash exterior paint. This lime wash paint created a nice contrast with the dark roof, shutters, trim, and accents, giving this home a modern, sophisticated, and welcoming look! Plus, it adds to the curb appeal as it pairs nicely with the landscaping. 

Our team was able to complete this project in two weeks.
