It had been quite some time since this historic home had been painted.  Whenever a home has not been painted in a number of years it is important that the home is fully sanded.

Upon inspecting the home’s exterior it was determined that the exterior would not only need a full sanding but that rotted clapboard pieces would also need to be replaced with cedar.

Proper sanding helps the new paint efficiently adhere to the home’s exterior.
