Giving Some Contrast To A Hardie Board House
These clients have had us paint a past exterior and a complete interior of two of their previous houses. We were pleased to be hired for a third painting project for them. The recently purchased this two story Hardie board house. They found the exterior colour scheme to be very lack luster. They didn’t want to paint the Hardie board, it was still in very good shape.
That left us with the trim and doors to make an impact with. We came up with a darker brown for the trim work that complimented the siding and gave a good contrast. The brown also works well with the brick and the wooden posts at the front of the house.
The overhead garage door, sets of french doors and other entry doors were painted in the same colour as the trim along with the deck banding and supporting posts. The owners wanted to give some life to the front door with a deep royal blue colour.
Stucco Colour Change
The exterior of this home was still in good condition, but the owners wanted to change the colour of the outdated pink stucco. The house has a great curb appeal and interesting achitectural lines, but somehow it doesn’t seem as appreciated in the pink colour. To make the home look more modern we painted stucco in a combination of light and mid-tone warm grey colours.
What a difference a slight colour change can make. The new colour scheme makes the house look sophisticated and current.
Painting of Exterior Fascia Boards, Trims And Pillars
The hardie cement board siding of this home was still in very good condition. It did not need to be re-painted at this time, but some of the trim work had become weathered and dull looking. We applied two coats of quality exterior paint to the fascia boards, window and door trims, pillars and all the other decorative trims that you can see in the light off-white colour. This has given the whole house a fresh, clean look.
Tudor Style House With Stucco Siding
The stucco of this tudor style home was previously painted in a very light off white colour and the trim detail was a lighter brown with a red undertone. The owners wanted to add some warmth to the stucco by having it painted a buttercream colour. To add more depth to the trim and more constrast with the body of the house we darkened it to a deep chocolate brown.
How could we complain about our work days when the setting has such an incredible view. We enjoyed working on this home and think the new looks suits it well. The home owners are very pleased with it too.
Cottage Exterior Repaint
This small cottage home was in need of a clean up. It required a great deal of preparation that included the scraping and sanding of old peeling paint. Once the surfaces were prepared we applied three different colours. A light cream colour was used on the body, a heritage green to all the trims and a brown colour with a green undertone was put on the stairs and surface of the front porch.
Colour Change Of House And Garage Doors And Garden Shed
The owners recently purchased this home and had us do a complete re-painting of the interior prior to moving in. The called us back to do some exterior work because they didn’t like the red colour of their front door or the grey colour of the garage door. We came up with some earthy tones that are more cohesive with the rest of the colours on the house.
We also did a complete colour change to the back yard garden shed. The owners were not fond of the vibrant red and yellow colour scheme. We re-painted the body of the shed with the same brown we used on the overhead garage door for the house and changed the door and window trim to a soft green colour. It was a good soloution that worked well with the existing black trim.
Natural Cedar Siding House Exterior
The owner of this new constructed house asked us to apply a product that would protect the wood and enrich its colour. It was the first time we had been hired to finish this type of a house. We wanted to make sure we did our research to find an appropriate product to use. After consulting with several experts in the in the industry for this type of wood building we choose an extremely high quality product called Penofin. It has a very specific criteria for its application that we made sure we followed to the letter. It will provide superior protection for years and has a beautiful look as well.
Repainting A House With Previously Painted Cedar Siding
We had to do an extensive amount of scraping on this cedar siding home. A lot of the previous coating was flaking and peeling. We filled smaller cracks where we could, but some of the boards had large splits right through them. There were areas that were starting to rot and soften. The owner had the necessary boards replaced before we started painting.
They didn’t want to vary too far from the current colour scheme, but the owner did want the siding to have less of a yellow tone. They chose a light grey stone colour for the body. The house has very little trim work and most of what it did have was painted the same as the body colour. The only areas of contrast were the dark brown fascia boards and the trim around the overhead garage door. To give the house more character we painted out the corner pieces of trim. We changed the trim colour from a dark brown with a reddish undertone to a brown with a grey undertone to compliment the body colour.
We did a lot of scraping to remove the loose paint. Areas with gaps like the garage door were caulked before we painted.
A New Garden Shed To House Stained To Match The House
We’ve painted for these owners several times in the past. They had a new cedar garden shed built in their yard and asked if we could stain it to match the house exterior. We used the same grey as the house siding and accented the trim work in the same white.
