After seeing several yard signs for completed exterior painting in Morristown NJ by Monks Home Improvements, The Carroll family contacted estimator, Kurt Becker about having the exterior of their home repainted. The client’s love of natural wood led to a change in direction mid way through this project.The Monks crew began the preparation for the painting by stripping the previously painted wood and exposing the bare wood underneath.
During one of his daily check ups with the homeowner, Kurt found the client very enthusiastic about the way the house looked with the bare wood.
Because of his extensive knowledge of Sikkens exterior siding stain, Kurt was able to present the homeowner with an option that could both retain the beautiful patina of the natural wood and also provide a heavy duty layer of protection from the elements.
Cetol stain is a product by Sikkens that offers Superior UV Protection to natural wood, is Highly Transparent, Water Repellent, and Weather Resistant. Kurt knew from previous experience with the product on garage doors and entry doors that this would be the the perfect solution. The exterior product was hand brushed for three different coats with careful sanding between coats to create a smooth beautiful finish.
The Carrolls also contracted Monk’s to rebuild the rear steps, remove the rotting soffits, facia and trim and replace with new trim and bead board soffits.
