Surfaces preparation and coatings applications.

• Scraping and sanding loose paint occurs once everything is clean and dry.
• Removing old, loose caulking, and re-nailing all loose nails.
• We putty all nails and caulk all seams on trim & claps as necessary to seal unsightly gaps and prevent moisture penetration.
• Downspouts are removed to properly paint all corners.
• Some older windows may require us to remove loose glazing and re-glaze as needed.
• We also prime for specific reasons! Most of our high-end coating systems are actually self-priming. We prime to deter knots from bleeding, deter tannin or cedar bleeding, or to increase adhesion. Then, we identify each area’s needs and prime accordingly!

damaged wood if/as we come across it!
