Methods: This Ballard home is a classic example of the craftsman style and the challenges these homes pose for painters. The sun exposed sides of the house had extensive areas of failing paint and the siding was close to needing to be replaced. The windows are all original a needed to have window glazing repaired along with the painting prep. In addition the gable shown above had cracking and failing stucco that needed repair. We used all of our painting techniques to get this house looking great. Extensive scraping and sanding, rot repair and filling with Sculpwood, window glazing, and skim coating for cosmetic purposes were all undertaken on this job. The number of products needed to get everything done was likely was around a dozen before we even got to the painting. Two coats of MoorLife flat paint on the siding, and MoorGard Low Luster paint on the windows and trim were used to top-coat the three tone paint scheme. The front door was painted in a lovely burgundy using Benjamin Moore’s Aura exterior paint to give it the finest and most durable possible exterior finish.  Porch paint on the walking surfaces finished up this complex project and our clients got the type of paint job this beautiful craftsman deserved.
