A reno is nearly finished. The fascias were rotted and had flaking paint (mid green), so I removed the dead wood, sanded, and put on several undercoats of brown to make quite sure that the paint would last. The reno has been going on for weeks and is obviously a work in progress. Paint and other items will be bought next week - hopefully. One owner (probably a resident) said that the paint did not match the OC colour scheme. The OC manager advised that matching paint was needed, I'm curious. Is it a requirement that external paint match existing paint?
