The time had come for this Hardie Board siding house to have its first repainting since the time of the original build. Some of the siding had become worn looking and it lacked the luster it once had. The trim work was in need of more paint to help keep it protected and much of the caulking had begun to shrink and deteriorate.
The original colour was blue with a creamy coloured trim. The owners picked a cheery green colour for the siding and we suggested using a crisp white for the trim work and doors. The front cedar shakes were recoated with a semi-transparent stain. The cedar shakes on the back of the house were unfortunately too far gone to re-stain. They had become very discoloured and had sections that were extremely faded. We went through a cleaning process and priming in order to prepare them for painting. They were painted with an accent colour that complimented the green siding. The house looks refreshed and the new colours look great.
