Assessment: This homeowner was calling for a transformation that would make the home stand out against the rest of the suburbian homes. Lime was called with the hopes of establishing a white wash distressed brick over the existing red brick and compliment the finish with a new color mix to the trim and stucco. Without much paint wear, Lime knew that this project was all about clean cut lines and the execution of a very custom brick application.
Advise: The distressed look that a white wash achieves means no prep work on the brick because with time and wear the brick will look better! After powerwashing the brick Lime watered down a standard flat finish white paint to a more viscous consistency. The flat finish would allow for a more authentic distressed look. Lime applied the paint with light horizontal brush strokes and then would power wash sections to give a more natural distressed finish. Above the brick was 2nd story stucco siding that was in good shape and received a face lift with a royal blue color and gray accented trim. The completion on this home was surely custom, surely impressionable and surely right up Lime’s alley!
