NW Portland Stain Project


As I look outside right now and see the rain flying, I’m already missing summer… LOL

I wanted to share a recent project that we just finished for a client in Northwest Portland. What a great home, view and project! And the owners were wonderful too ?

This home was in good condition, but to preserve wood shingles you really want to stay on top of things before they weather and discolor.  If neglected, a big project like this can turn into a monster. We were hired to clean and treat the mildew and put a fresh coat of oil stain on the whole home. Now it’s ready for the harsh weather that winter will bring.

During our initial inspection a conversation came up about caulking the windows. It turns out that they were never sealed up as specified by the window manufacturer. After several cases of elastomeric / urethane sealant, the windows are now waterproofed.

You will also note in the “After” pics, we changed the look by adding black painted window trim. This was something that I pushed for and the homeowners are thrilled with. What do you think?
