Exterior Painting Project at Flowers on the Ridge by Monk's
Exterior Painting Project at Flowers on the Ridge by Monk’s



‘Flowers on the Ridge’ is a florist shop located in Basking Ridge, NJ.  This business is based in a beautiful historic home.  Like many older houses this structure had undergone several repaintings and therefore had layers upon layers of paint on its exterior.  Our team at Monk’s fully stripped the house down to 95% bare wood, power washed the house, and painted it in only eight days. Painting Flowers on the Ridge also posed a challenge because the building was an active business. We coordinated our activity with the owner to allow the business to remain fully functioning while we completed the project.

Every painting job by Monk’s always begins with a careful examination of the house.  While our team was inspecting this home’s exterior it was discovered that several sections of trim were rotting and deteriorating.  Our team replaced these sections with azek. Azek is a moisture resistant, composite material.

The first step in painting a historic home is to strip it down to 95% bare wood.  If this step is not taken the paint will not effectively adhere to the home, but will instead simply peel off with the other layers of paint.  It is necessary to strip all of this away and thoroughly sand the house down before applying any paint.

Once the house is stripped it is thoroughly power washed to remove any dust.

After the power washing the home is given two coats of oil based primer.  The first coat is a slow drying primer, while the second is a stain killing cover stain.

Once both coats of primer were dry our team at Monk’s applied two coats of Benjamin Moore Aura paint.
