Methods: This job had several different challenges for us. First off was the south side of the house of the house had numerous layers of paint that was failing extensively. To remedy this we stripped to paint from the lap siding and surrounding trim to get back down to bare wood. This way we can get problem layers of paint out of the way so that our primer and paint have a solid surface to adhere to. The west side of the house had paint that was cracked and alligatored but otherwise well adhered to the house. For this we skim coated the siding to fill the cracks before priming and painting. I both cases we were able to get 100 year old siding to look nearly new. The remainder of the home, which get less sun exposure, was straight forward, we simply cleaned it well and top-coated so that it would match the areas of the house that absolutely needed repainting. Extensive prep work resulted in a beautiful paint job that will last.
