Angelo resides in Green Village with his wife, Maureen.

The Monk Family Recipe for the Longest Lasting Exterior Paint Job

  1. Remove all loose paint, even if you remove 95% of the paint from the siding.
  2. Clean all dirty areas of the house and rinse off any dust from the sanding.
  3. Prime all bare wood with a top quality primer from California Paints, Sherwin-Williams or Benjamin-Moore.
  4. On cedar houses with lots of bare cedar – apply a 2nd coat of oil based primer to prevent the cedar from staining.
  5. Remove any rotten wood and replace with Azek trim.
  6. Caulk all seams and corners with high quality latex caulk.
