We repair all different kinds of wooden exterior surfaces. These include: siding, trim, and window “eyebrows”. We also repair other surfaces that get damaged, such as stucco and composites. If you do not want to worry about rot any longer, we can show you some rot proof replacements for your current siding and trim, or if you need a thorough inspection for damage on all surfaces that need painting, we can provide you with a reasonable price in a free estimate.
Q.: Do you use any composite or synthetic materials?
Yes. We suggest replacing damaged or rotten natural wood or fiber board, such as Masonite with an engineered wood product, composite or synthetic material. The most durable options are engineered wood (LP building products) or cement based, like James Hardie products. Syntheic materials made of vinyl or PVC, tend to be more expensive, but can often be customized more than composites. If there is a specific material you would like to be used, please let us know.
Q.: Throughout the course of my work, what am I responsible for?
We offer services where you will not have to lift a finger. Any furniture that needs moving and/or covering, we will take care of and return to its’ original position when we have finished. We use canvas drop cloths to cover floors and most furniture will be repositioned in the center of the room and covered with plastic. Any larger items may be moved away from the wall and then covered with plastic. Pictures, wall fixtures, and decorations that can be removed, will be taken down. Window treatments will either be removed or covered and we will carefully cut in around if they are not removable.
