Following are repair, preparation and painting/coating specifications for Champions Club (Perimeter Wall).
The intent of these specifications is to obtain comparable bids from competent contractors for repairing
and repainting determined substrates/surfaces.
Sherwin Williams respectfully submits our specifications which are designed to provide the lowest
possible per square foot, per year, maintenance cost using higher quality paints.
In order to accomplish this, many factors must be taken into consideration such as existing finishes,
problem sources, environment, preparation procedures and specific paint systems. All of these
are related to film longevity, integrity and appearance.
The standard specification is a must because it assures the owner of quality materials and compliance
of guidelines set forth for individual substrates.
A site visit has been made of the existing substrates and surface conditions. The areas have been
analyzed and a specification prepared. This specification covers the surface preparation, application
instructions, product data sheets and other conditions and requirements essential for the successful
application and performance of the coatings system herein stated. Product data sheets are to be
considered as a description of the products characteristics, systems specific to the project (specification)
are herein stated.
Strict adherence to all instructions and conditions is required.
If any conditions, circumstances or occurrences not covered within the text of this specification are
encountered or if there is any doubt as to the meaning or interpretation of any part of this specification,
Once a contractor is selected, Sherwin Williams will review existing colors and provide sample colors to
be approved before painting begins.

6.1 Colors to be approved by owner or owner’s representative. Specifications are
prepared with the intent colors will be re-applied as they exist.
6.2 The owner and project coordinator should be aware that certain colors,
especially darker tones, fade more rapidly then other colors, regardless of the
product manufacturer, product type, or substrate to which the product is
applied. It is advisable for the owner, project coordinator, and/or person
responsible for color selection to consult with Sherwin-Williams early in the
planning stages to assure the most durable combination of tinting formulation
is used to achieve the desired color. Additionally, color selection affects the
hiding ability of finish coats. The specification is written intending for the
finish coat to cover.
7.0 SURFACE PREPARATION
All surfaces to be painted shall be cleaned and prepared as specified.
The painting contractor is responsible for the finish of his work. Should any
surface be found unsuitable to produce a proper paint or sealant finish, the
Owner or Owner's agent shall be notified, in writing, and no materials shall be applied
until the unsuitable surfaces have been made satisfactory. Coating performance is
affected by proper product selection, application, and surface preparation. Coating
integrity and service life will be reduced because of improperly prepared surfaces.
The selection and implementation of proper surface preparation ensures coating
adhesion to the substrate and prolongs the service life of the coating system.
7.2 PREVIOUSLY COATED SURFACES
Maintenance painting will frequently not permit or require complete removal of all old
coatings prior to repainting. However, ALL surface contamination such as oil,
grease, loose and marginally adhering paint, mill scale, dirt, foreign matter, rust, mold,
mildew, mortar, efflorescence and sealers must be removed to assure sound bonding
to the tightly adhering old paint. In addition, glossy surfaces of old paint films must be
clean and dull before repainting. Spot prime all bare areas with the appropriate primer.
Recognize that any surface preparation short of total removal of the old coatings
may compromise the service length of the system. Always check for compatibility
of the previously painted surface with the new coating by applying a test patch of
2-3 square feet. Allow to dry thoroughly, check adhesion.
Compatibility of the existing coatings and what specified is determined acceptable
since supplied by the same manufacture, The Sherwin Williams Company. This allows
the owner to have a single source responsible party to determine any failures of either
the existing coating system or what specified herein.
7.3 CLEANING & MILDEW CONTROL
All exterior surfaces must be thoroughly pressure cleaned using a pressure washer at
2500 PSI and a 15 degree tip held no more than 12" from the surface to insure the surface
is cleaned free of all loose, scaling, and marginally adhering paint, all chalk, mildew,
stains, dirt, grease or other foreign material. Surface must be firm, clean and dry before
proceeding. All loose and scaling paint not removed by pressure cleaning shall be
removed by wire brushing or other suitable power tool cleaning.
Remove mildew using a solution of chlorine bleach and water mixed to a ratio of 1
part chlorine bleach and 3 parts water. Taking extreme care not to get solution on
adjacent vegetation. Allow solution to remain on the surface for
10 minutes before rinsing thoroughly with clean water. CAUTION: DO
NOT ADD HOUSEHOLD DETERGENTS OR AMMONIA TO THE BLEACH SOLUTION. Wear protective glasses or goggles, waterproof gloves, and
protective clothing. Quickly wash off with soap and clean water any solution that touches
the skin. Wet any shrubbery in the area where cleaning prior to use of any bleach and
water mixture rinse completely after area cleaned.
7.0 SURFACE PREPARATION-Continued
Remove grease, oil and stubborn airborne contaminants using a degreasing agent by apply
to the affected area by pump up sprayer allowing to sit as described by manufacture,
typically 10 minutes and cleaning as adjacent areas.
7.4 RUSTED/FLAKING METAL SURFACES/DOORS
Hand Tool clean rusty areas per SSPC-SP2 or Power Tool clean per SSPC-SP3. Surface
must be clean, dry and sound. Spot prime cleaned rusted/peeling areas with specified
primer the same day as prepared.

and/or to prevent three (3) sided adhesion.
8.4 Install specified sealant. Sealant must be installed according to the manufacturer’s
directions. All sealant must be installed to maintain the proper width to depth ratio. All
sealant will maintain a minimum of ½” width and have a minimum of ¼” intimate contact
with the prepared substrate(s).
8.5 All sealant will be no more than ½” in depth, and no more than 1” in width except for
multi-component high-performance sealant. Transitions that have anticipated movement
will or where sealant depth may exceed ½” will have bond breaker tape or backer rod
installed to prevent three (3) sided adhesion.
9.0 MASONRY/STUCCO REPAIR PROCEDURE
9.1 Sound all masonry cracks to determine if there is a bond to the substrate. If
hollow sound or disbonding is present, repair using the following products and per the
instructions listed on the attached product data page. Loose substrate must be removed
and the area primed with Sherwin Williams (S-W) SherCrete Rebar and Bonding Agent.
Install Sherwin Williams (S-W) SherCrete Thin Coat, SherCrete Vertical/Overhead mortar
with corrosion inhibitors to be used on horizontal surfaces and finished to match the
adjacent substrate in texture and uniformity.
9.2 HAIRLINE OR SHRINKAGE CRACKS (1/32" or smaller)
Coat affected area by applying one coat of Sherwin-Williams Loxon Masonry
Acrylic Primer (A24W8300) at 8.0 wet mils.
9.3 HAIRLINE OR SHRINKAGE CRACKS (1/32" to 1/16")
Apply Sherwin-Williams’ Concrete & Masonry Patching Compound Brush Grade Textured
(WL700GLTB) generously over the center of the crack. Use a broad knife or a brush and
"feather" the material to either side of the crack so as to go from 1/16" to 0, over a 2" area.
9.4 LARGE CRACKS (1/16" up to 1/4")
Do not attempt to repair cracks caused by structural deficiencies in the building.
Nonstructural movement cracks can range from 1/16" to in excess of 1/4" Rout out
cracks larger than 1/16" to 1/4" wide by 1/4" deep. Flush with water. Prime with
Sherwin-Williams Loxon Surface Conditioner Clear. Insert Bond Breaker Tape.
Fill joint completely with Sherwin-Williams Concrete and Patching Compound Brush Grade
Textured. Build a small crest to compensate for shrinkage. Allow to cure for a minimum of
24 hours and apply a cap of Sherwin-Williams Concrete and Patching Compound Brush
Grade Textured. Refer to diagrams for details and to the Specification Guidelines Booklet
by Sherwin-Williams for specific application and recommendations.
10.0 INSPECTION, SAMPLES, WARRANTIES & FINISH SCHEDULE
10.1 Wet film thickness will be checked with a properly calibrated Wet Film Thickness Gauge or
by specifically approved instruments by a Sherwin Williams representative on a bi-weekly
basis. Areas will be chosen at random and measured to ensure conformance to the project
10.2 It will be the paint contractor's responsibility to own and use a wet film gauge
to check the application thickness as the painting proceeds. This method checked against
volume solids and coverage rate is the best guide in determining what the dry film thickness
10.3 A small sample area of each phase of the work shall be done and checked by
a project representative and Sherwin Williams representative. This will serve upon
acceptance as the job standard for the remainder of that phase of work. This will also prevent
misunderstandings as to interpretation of this specification's standards.
10.4 Upon completion following the project specification and approved site visit reports by
Sherwin Williams, materials applied to masonry substrates will be warranted for both
material and labor will be warranted for a Ten (10) years as described
on the attached sample warranty.
10.5 Coatings should be applied based on specified wet mil film thicknesses to achieve suggested
dry film thicknesses. Spread rates available on Sherwin Williams product technical data sheets
and product labels should be used as a guideline for material estimates. Given the available
data, it is the responsibility of the applicator to determine spread rates based on surface
textures, profiles and porosity after required preparation. The contractor shall also be
responsible for determining the number of finish coats to provide satisfactory hide and
coverage without compromising the finish and performance characteristics of the products.
Sherwin Williams shall not be held responsible for any quantity estimates. WET FILM
GAUGES MUST BE USED.
Note: Sherwin Williams representatives will randomly be on site a minimum of one (1) time per
week to review work performed, performing and make recommendations as to any
repairs/re-work. A site visit report at that time will be completed noting the work area,
