Exterior Clapboard Painting and Portico Renovation in Madison, NJ

Scope of work: Carpentry, Exterior Painting

Location: Madison, NJ 07940

Timeline: 10 days

 

This Madison, NJ home was decades old but had never been painted!  Our team at Monk’s was called in to assess the damage and give the home a long overdue paint job.  The homeowners also asked our team at Monk’s to update the look of their portico, and make repairs to the home’s rotting trim.  In ten days our team was able to make all of these exterior changes, resulting in a dramatic transformation.

When our team was first called in for this job there was a discussion of whether it was necessary to actually paint the house, or whether restaining the exterior could suffice.  Our team advised a full exterior paint job.  Paint not only gives your home a crisp finished look, but it also adds an important layer of protection against the elements.

The first step in treating this home was to hand sand it and give it a good cleaning.

Once the house was sanded and cleaned several portions of damaged clapboard were replaced.

These  Madison, NJ homeowners also decided that they wanted to update their home’s portico.  The homeowners were looking for a way to round the top of their portico without removing all of the framing.  Our innovative carpenters were able to do just that, arching the roof from the inside without ever taking down the framing.

For this portico renovation our team also added composite trim and wrapped the columns in composite to prevent future weather related damage.  Composite is a moisture resistant material which makes it ideal for exterior projects like this one.  Our team also used composite to repair some other portions of the home’s trim which had experienced water damage.

Clapboard Painting

Once the clapboard was in place, and the portico was updated, our team applied two complete coats of primer to the entire house.
