Scope of Work: Exterior Sanding and Painting
Town: Boonton, NJ
Timing: 10 days
Monk’s provided this Boonton, NJ home with a number of home improvements after being purchased. One of the necessary projects was a full exterior sanding and painting job. The first story featured cedar planks, while the second story was wrapped in cedar shakes. We repaired, sanded and painted both stories and had this home looking amazing in a matter of days.
Cedar Plank and Cedar Shake Painting
The first step for this project was helping the homeowner decide what color to paint the house. Sometimes this involves using the fan deck, but in this case, we tested a number of colors right on the home. They selected a deep, dark blue which is a very striking choice coupled with white trim.
While the color was being decided, our carpenters repaired a few areas of the home that needed new cedar shakes installed.
When the carpenters were finished, the painters began the sanding process. They tented the home to help keep the sawdust from flying around. The tent makes for a toasty working environment, but your neighbors will appreciate it! Once the home was sanded down to the bare wood, they power-washed the home to remove any remaining dust and dirt.
After the home was completely dry, the painters applied primer. Two coats of primer are applied to prevent any staining and to better protect the wood.
Lastly, two coats of premium exterior paint were applied. This included the cedar planks, cedar shakes, as well as the cement foundation. All the trim was painted a crisp white to really give this home some great curb appeal.
What a difference!
