Monk’s Method

We started prepping this home for market in Autumn. Therefore, we got to work on the exterior projects first. The exterior projects including power washing the entire house and painting the exterior trim. The homeowners selected and purchased shutters from our showroom. We painted them a distinctive robin’s egg blue color and installed them.

Then we moved to the interior of the home. There were a number of repairs and updates that were required. We started by making ceiling repairs in the dining room and living room. First, we removed the existing drop ceiling tile and cracked plaster ceiling. We replaced these ceilings with new sheetrock.

Then we got to work on the floors. We installed new hardwood flooring in the living room. All existing hardwood floors were screened and coated with polyurethane.

In the kitchen, we replaced the rusted, broken exhaust hood with a brand new one. The dark cabinetry was painted white to match the appliances and to give the room a new, clean appearance.

Lastly, we painted the entire interior. This included walls, ceilings, trim, and wood paneling in the sunroom. What a difference!

Now the prepping is complete and this Montclair, NJ home is ready to be put on the market.
