After replacing all of the rotted areas on the house, we followed our standard procedure for exterior paint work. We power washed the exterior to remove built up dirt and grime. We then scraped all the peeling paint away with hand scrapers. Priming comes next. We use a high grade exterior wood primer on all bare spots. Next we caulk. This house had a significant amount of caulk damage. A lot of it was cracked. A lot of the caulk was simply missing. And a lot of the caulk was never done in the first place. After removing as much failed caulk as possible we re-caulked the house with Sherwin williams 950A Caulk. It is a siliconized latex caulk that is rated for 35 years. It goes on smooth and lasts a long time. We used over 2 cases of caulk on this one house.
After all the prep was finished we used Sherwin Williams Super Paint (25 year warranty) to paint the body of the house. We used our Spray – Brush – Spray method throughout. The trim was all hand painted using the same product.
