Exterior Staining and Painting


After seeing several Monk’s yard signs around Morristown, NJ, the Carroll family gave us a call to repaint their home’s exterior. The initial remit involved us sanding and painting the home, and making some carpentry repairs.

We began the preparation by sanding the previously painted wood to expose the bare wood underneath. During one of his daily check ins with the homeowner, Kurt found the client very enthusiastic about the way the house looked with the bare wood.  Because of this, the client changed his mind about painting the entire home.

Instead, the homeowner wanted to showcase the home’s natural wood. Because of his extensive knowledge of Sikkens exterior siding stain, Kurt was able to present the homeowner with a number of options to achieve this. He created a sample board of different stains that would retain the beautiful patina of the natural wood while providing protection from the elements. Now it was easy for the homeowner’s to visualize their final project and make a color choice.

Cetol stain by Sikkens was selected for the upper half of the home. The product offers superior UV Protection, is highly transparent, water repellent, and weather resistant.

The exterior product was hand brushed for three different coats. Between each coat, we carefully sanded to create a smooth, beautiful finish.

The homeowners also contracted Monk’s to rebuild the rear steps, and replace the rotting soffits, facia and trim. See all the before and after photos of this interesting exterior staining and painting project here.
