Evanston Ridge Historic District Home Project

About This Project:

This 1913 Ridge Historic District Colonial home in Evanston needed a complete exterior refresh.

The color choice by a previous owner was supposed to be inspired by the colors of Evanston High School. Her painter didn’t believe that she wanted an orange house, so she ended up with a brownish red.

When the current owners signed on with LIME Painting of Chicago, they elected to stay true to their home's color scheme. For this project, we used the following paint from Sherwin-Williams:

  • Regal Select High Build Low Lustre in Sun Dried Tomato (SW7585) for the siding
  • Duration Exterior Satin in Creamy (SW7012) was used for the white trim and accents
  • Duration Exterior Satin in Naval (SW6244) as used for the blue accents
  • SuperDeck Solid Stain, also in Naval, was used for the front stairs and landing.

As we completed the project, we identified a couple of areas that needed carpentry. The primary area was the soffit at each corner of the single story pop-out on the front of the house as the wood had begun to rot. We also replaced the front steps to change the pitch, as the owners were having issues with water pooling in the center, causing damage.
