Scope of Work: Exterior House and Deck Painting
Town: Madison, NJ
Timing: 5 days
This pretty ranch house in Madison, NJ was due for some exterior maintenance. The light yellow exterior paint was starting to peel in some areas. The back exterior stairs had become faded and needed a coat of stain to keep them protected from the sun. Monk’s painters had this house looking better than ever in just 5 days.
Ranch House Repaint
Homes with wood siding typically need to be repainted between every 3 – 7 years. This cedar shake ranch house was ready to be repainted. Some of the existing paint had started peeling in areas exposed to the most sunlight. Sometimes homes require a full sanding to be done prior to repainting. However, in this instance, we provided a less labor-intensive and cost effective alternative. We
The first step in this ranch house repaint was to power wash the home. In order to kill any mildew, we used a bleach solution in the pressure washer. We also pressure-washed the back steps that would be restained as part of the project.
Sometimes homes require a full sanding to be done prior to repainting. However, in this instance, we provided a less labor-intensive and cost effective alternative. Monk’s painters went around the entire structure and hand scraped off any loose paint.
Once the prep work is complete, the painters applied primer to any areas of bare wood. The homeowners decided to change up the color scheme of their home as part of the process. The yellow siding was painted grey, and the green shutters were painted maroon. The home was given two coats of exterior paint on the siding and one coat of paint on all the trim areas.
Lastly, one coat of deep stain was applied to the pressure-treated wood back stairs.
Now, this home has a new look that will protect it from the elements for another 3 to 7 years.
