This newly purchased Hardie Board house was well past the time that it should have been painted. A lot of maintenance had been neglected over the years. We did an extensive amount of scraping loose and flaking paint from the trim work and fascia boards. Without the wood trim having a proper covering of paint to help protect it there were cracks and gaps in many areas that were filled with caulking and wood filler where required.
We worked with the customers to come up with a new colour scheme as they were not at all fond of the current one. They picked a gray with a blue undertone and an ivory colour was chosen for the trim work. A whiter trim would not have worked as well with the almond colour vinyl windows. The grand front door remained dark, but went from dark chocolate brown to a rich charcoal colour. It looks great with the gray body colour.
The difference between the before and after is incredible. The house looks sharp and modern and now has the paint protection it needs for years to come.
