This house was in a very bad shape when Smart Coats undertook this lead paint project. The project was financed through the Boston Home Renovation program. EPA lead paint protection was set up to collect paint chips. We scraped, power washed, and made sure the siding was dry before we applied a full coat of alkyd primer and 2 coats of finish. We used Sherwin Williams alkyd primer and Super latex paint. The house came out beautiful and retained its character.
