Taking care of the exterior of your home is just as important as maintaining the interior.  With constant exposure to the elements, it is practically inevitable that the exterior of your home will experience some sort of weather damage.  The homeowners of this Livingston, NJ home called our team at Monk’s to replace the sun-damaged cedar shingles on the south side of their home; perform minor trim and soffit repairs, and transform the home’s look with an exterior paint job in a new color.

Due to the decades of sun exposure, the cedar shingles on the south side of this home had become brittle and were severely warped.  All of the shingles on the south side of this Livingston home would be replaced.

Carpentry Repairs

Our team began this job by stripping the exterior of the home’s south side all the way down to the tar paper.

New cedar shingles were carefully installed.

Next, the newly installed shingles were prepared for painting. Before the shingles were painted with the new taupe color they were all primed with oil-based primer.  This ensures that the red color will not bleed through and interfere with the new paint color.
