Robyn’s home had failed caulking, peeling paint, bare wood and some dry-rot on the trim around the windows. So she hired us to take on her project.
Before we started, the first thing we did was get her connected to our rockstar color consultant Vanessa. Vanessa helped her choose house numbers, unique light fixtures and of course, eye catching great new paint colors that are the talk of the neighborhood. (NO joke I have already fielded 3 calls from neighbors wanting bids, and the common thread was the color selection).
Now one surface that I really wanted to paint was the
brick. Originally Robyn was opposed to
this but as you can see after meeting with Vanessa it got painted. The next-door neighbor told me she could not
believe how good it looked and felt that it should always have been that
way. As well one of the other neighbors
that called for a quote said, “I wish I had brick so I could paint it!”
Here’s what we did:
✅ Connected client with a skilled
carpenter to repair the bad dry-rotting boards
✅ Connected client with a color
consultant to choose the perfect colors and figure out what should be called
out as trim, body, accent etc.
✅ Pressure washed using a
fungicide to get rid of mildew, dirt and pollen
✅ Let it dry using a moisture
meter to confirm we were safe to move forward
✅ Scraped and sanded all loose
and peeling paint
✅ Primed all the bare wood so the
paint would stick long term
✅ Caulked all failing gaps to
prevent moisture intrusion / rot
✅ Primed the brick with a masonry
primer to deal with the PH, this ensures the finish coats will stick and
perform long term
✅ Sprayed 2 coats of Rodda Cover
Coat XL paint on all siding, soffits, shutters, brick and garage doors
✅ Hand painted 2 coats of Rodda
Cover Coat XL paint on all trim
✅ Sprayed the front door (using a fine finish dual orifice tip) with 2 coats of Rodda Renaissance enamel finish
✅ Thorough clean up, garbage went with us, left over paint stayed with the client
✅ And a critical final step that
really ensured we made our client Robyn happy.
Our whole team inspected
and marked all touch ups with blue tape before we loaded the ladders and
equipment and put the paint away. This
is a process that we always follow, where the client gets the full chance (NO
RUSH) to thoroughly walk the whole home and inspect and mark anything that they
don’t like. After that double inspection
process, we 100% take care of all issues.
As you can see from the photo, we have another happy client!
