Following power washing and a week-long drying period, prep work begins. All cracked, loose, and missing caulking is removed and replaced. All loose and peeling paint is hand scraped with carbide scrapers and sanded to remove inconsistencies. All window sashes needing glaze are re-glazed, and all rotted or missing wood is either removed and replaced, or puttied with 3M Bondo wood filler. Following these steps, surfaces are primed using top-of-the-line Sherwin Williams products.
