Power washing

Completed 2-3 weeks before painting.  Because eaves are constructed out of plywood, and since they do not receive any direct sun, we allow several weeks of drying time.  Our power washer removed bee’s nests, spider webs, and most importantly, an invisible layer of pollution that would otherwise mix into the paint and alter its formula.

Masking and cover-up

This house is tastefully landscaped and our goal is to not break a single twig.  We started by masking windows, front bricks, and covering up plants.

Masking Windows

We have expert maskers on the crew.  We guarantee a neat job.  Once we are finished, there should not be a single drop of paint on any bricks, concrete, windows, etc.

Caulking

Since we are dealing with fiber cement siding, we caulked every single butt-joint to prevent moisture penetration.  Product of choice: Sika by Sika group of America.  This is the mother of all adhesives.  Once dry, this caulking material has the same feel as rubber used in car tires.  It remains flexible even after fully cured.

Applying the second coat

As always, we apply 2 coats whether it is needed or not.  Both coats are back-rolled to improve adhesion and spread the paint evenly.

Front Door

After sanding, cleaning, and performing our standard precision masking, The front door was treated with 2 coats of Benjamin Moore MoorGlo.  Color: 2137-10.  with every front door we paint, our goal is to produce a finish that resembles something that just rolled off the factory line, and on this project, weather conditions were perfect and we were able to reach our goal.
