Madison Park Modernist Marvel

Modernist home in Madison Park Painted by Step Up Painting

"Modernist architects had painters in mind!"

Client: Leonard and Else C.

City: Seattle

Neighborhood: Madison Park

Date Completed: July, 2008

Date of photo: October, 2009

Products:Daly’s brand exterior stains, Pratt and Lambert Accolade Exterior paint and Benjamin Moore Metal and Wood enamel.

Methods: This house was designed by the home owners son and made to be easily maintained. We were the first to restain this and the original finish had already lasted 15 years. Not bad for an extreme southern exposure. After a through cleaning the job consisted of a maintenance coat of stain (two coats on the most “thirsty” areas) on the siding and repainting the doors and metal rails. The biggest challenge was accessing all of the areas of the home as this house has is built on a steep slope with little distance from the neighbors. This house took a little bit of planning to get at, but with a little clever ladder placement we were able to complete the job without the expense of scaffolding.

Client testimonial: We found Step Up Painting via your listings and have been very pleased. They painted our whole house (exterior), with care and on time. Their workers are courteous and neat. We have recommended them several times and will use them again in the future.
