This house is only five years old, but unfortunately some new construction homes only receive a quick one coat paint job. If you stand back and look at it from the street it might look okay, but upon closer inspection there are clearly areas that don’t have proper paint coverage. A new owner recently purchased this house and wanted to have it looking better.
We painted the Hardie board siding in the same golden colour. The trim work and fascia boards were originally painted with a white that had strong gray undertone. They looked quite dull. To brighten the trim up and provide more contrast with the body we used a brighter whiter colour.
The wood trim around the hydro meters, plug-ins and cable panels were originally done in the lighter trim colour as were the thin inner corner trim pieces. There’s no reason to highlight these features of a house. To make them blend in we re-painted them in the same gold colour as the body.
The cedar porch ceilings on the front and the back of the house were originally left as raw wood. We clear coated them to enhance and bring out the beauty of the wood. The decorative wooden beam work in the front gables of the house had faded. We freshened it up with a coat of the same colour of semi-transparent stain. The new paint has the house looking great and how it should have looked in the first place.
