Wash, prime, paintPosted: April 25, 2012
During the winter months, the exterior of our house is very much out of sight, out of mind. But with all this beautiful weather (current week excluded), hubby and I have been spending a lot more time outside. The extra time is reminding us just how much we HATE the color of our house.
Our house has a great shape, structure, size and layout–really everything we were looking for in a house. But the whole house, inside and out, needed love. The previous owners put minimal effort and maintenance into the house. Add on top of that the house had been vacant for nearly two years by the time we purchased it and you can imagine the work it needed.
Fortunately for us, the hideous aluminum siding is actually in pretty good shape even if the color doesn’t really fit us. A good power wash, prime and paint will go a long way.
