Painting a house built in 1894 is a fun project for our painters. This customer’s home in historic Mount Tabor, New Jersey was faded and starting to peel. They selected some new bright colors to compliment the look of the rest of the neighborhood. Monk’s painters took it from there. We sanded the exterior down to bare wood, then applied two coats of primer, followed by two coats of paint.

Painting a House in Historic Mount Tabor NJ
This home on a hill has quite a presence coming up the road. It has a large columned porch that wraps around a portion of the home. The front and back sides of the home each have unique features and almost appear as separate homes. The back of the home has an extended mahogany deck that we refinished the year prior. The new painting project with brighter trim will better match the deck than the current paint.
Due to the condition of the current paint job, we recommended to sand the home down to bare wood. Our painters started with this step. We taped up all the windows and doors. Then we used hand sanders to remove the old paint. Afterward, we power washed the home to remove any remaining dust.
Then we applied two coats of primer. Once the primer was completely dry, the painters applied two coats of premium paint. Lastly, the shutters were repaired and painted. We applied the color to a single shutter first to make sure the homeowner was pleased with the color combination. When we received the green light, we painted the rest of the shutters and reinstalled them.
Now, this bright blue home with purple shutters is ready to greet passersby.
