This 7 year old home was about to be put up for sale. The exterior condition wasn’t extremely bad, however some issues made it worth re-painting to be in top notch shape to sell. Some of the paint had faded. It was built at a time when the protocol for Hardie board was to caulk the butt joints. The caulking had failed in many of them, especially on the sunny side of the home. Unfortunately the only option for houses built in this way is to re-caulk the joints. Newer Hardie board houses don’t have caulking in the butt joints, instead a small piece of metal flashing that sits behind the joint acts as protection from water infiltration.
We re-painted in a similar colour for the body and trim work. We also put a coat of stain on the fence and arbour to have them looking their best too. We’re happy to say that the home sold in less than a week after being put on the market! We hope our paint job helped to make that happen!
