This Hardie board house was well overdue for its first re-paint since it was built, especially on the back where it receives intense sun exposure. In that area the wood trim work barely had any paint left on it. This leaves the wood unprotected and it has started to show signs of cracking and warping. The caulking on most of the house had deteriorated leaving areas of it susceptible to water penetration.
The new owners were not fond of the original earthy green colour scheme. They had us re-paint the siding in a vibrant blue colour. They didn’t want white trim so a light colour called natural linen was used for the trim work and the overhead garage door. The new colour scheme has refreshed the house and given it some character.
