A large number of houses are made out of brick, with small amounts of wooden trim. These wooden touches are usually located on porches and small areas on the ends of your home.
As time passes, these wood places have a tendency to become worn, with cracked and dull looking paint.
Give your wooden accents a touch up of paint and the entire exterior of your home will have a fresh new look.
Depending on how much wooden trim you have, once you purchase the right amount of exterior paint, it shouldn’t take you more than two or three hours to finish this task.
Occasionally, you may need to sand the area before you can paint it. Sanding helps the new paint cure much better than if you’d applied it directly onto the old paint – especially if the previous coat had a cracked surface.
A palm sander is the ideal solution to getting this part of the project done quickly and easily.
Beyond the wooden points, have a look at the paint on the downspout, gutters, and anywhere else that has paint. None of these should be cracked, faded or peeling. If they are: repaint.
